Top 1000 Actors

List of the my top 1000 actors by volume of work. The quality of their performances is not taken into account. The ranking attempts to take into account number of credits along with the significance of their role.

Voice acting performances have not been taken into account

Each actor is represented by the first film that came to my mind that I've seen, but if that movie was taken an alternate was found.
