I can't believe no one has mentioned Damian Lewis.

http://imdb.com/name/nm0507073/

I've only seen him in Dreamcatcher (good movie, I bet the book is better), but he was very good in it.

Patrick Stewart is a great actor.

probably just more popular on these boards due to the type of films that we are subjected to but by no means does it mean that the brits are the best.
