    Liam Neeson... Schindler's List (Epic performance). Ras Al-Guhl (did I spell that right?) in Batman Begins and Dark Knight Rises. Rob Roy, Taken.. Many many more. The fact that he came back and voiced Qui-Gon in CW earned him even more respect in my book.
    Samuel Jackson ... Always a fave! So many great performances, but Pulp Fiction stands out.
    "Oh, I'm sorry, did I break your concentration...?"
    Just finished watching A Time to Kill, which he was incredible in. I was so amazed and delighted that he turned out to be a SW geek.
    Sir Alec. Not only an incredible actor, but underused as a comedian. Anybody ever seen "Murder By Death". He's hysterical.
    Christoper Lee.... What can you say? LOTR, of course. But check out the mid-70's The Three Musketeers and The Four Musketeers to see him fence WITHOUT CGI help. And of course, (With apologies to the great Mr. Lugosi..) , the best screen Dracula ever! Too many more to be listed!
    Harrison Ford.. no explaination needed.
    Ewan always stands out in WHATEVER he's in!

    Harrison Ford and Smauel L Jackson are the only actors I have seen in other films (Indiana Jones and Avengers Assemble) and they where really good in both.

    They are the best actors who ever appeared in the saga and for some reason they are all British (well, Neeson is Irish)...

    Going with this definition from the OP...

    "Not necessarily your favorite actors in the films themselves, but who are your favorite actors in general who happen to be in the six films?"

    ... my list is:

    Harrison Ford
    Alec Guinness
    Ewan McGregor
    Natalie Portman
    Samuel L. Jackson

    Some of these responses seem like they may be more geared towards "the performances in SW movies that you liked the best".

    Liam, Ewan, Harry, Alec, Chris, and Ian. I thought Mark did a good job too, and Hayden was decent in RotS.

    I'll be honest, I was never that big a Harrison Ford fan. I've enjoyed most of the movies he's been in but he alsways seems to act the same in every movie. Just MHO
