10. Sir Alec Guiness
Who can forget Guiness in those sparkling Ealing Comedies, including The Ladykillers and Kind Hearts and Coronets? Or his sinister Fagin in Oliver Twist, Colonel Nicholson in The Bridge on the River Kwai? Or Obi-Wan Kenobi in the original Star Wars trilogy? The actor would have been 100 years old on 2 April.
