    Ian McDiarmid, Sam Jackson, Christopher Lee, and Liam Neeson were the standouts for me.

    That being said, I thought everyone involved in 1-6 brought their A-game.

    Hayden, Natalie, Ewan, Pernilla, Liam and of course Chris and Ian. Most others were good (well, maybe except for blue Lucas at the opera :D), but these sort of stand out.

    With what little he had to do, Alec Guinness. Harrison Ford did a great job, for me in second place. And third Ewan McGregor. Honorable mention: Ian McDiarmid.

    I think McGregor just earned his way into the number one spot for me.

    Adam Driver is also up there for me. And Ian McDiarmid and Frank Oz for nailing those over the top voices.

    Ewan gives a real heart and soul performance as Obi-Wan. I think he’s the best hero of the saga.

    It's Hamill, and it's because he's the best listener. His reactions speak volumes.

    Top 5:

    1. Mark Hamill
    2. Frank Oz
    3. Ian McDiarmid
    4. Adam Driver
    5. Ewan McGregor

    Here's my top 10:
    1. Ewan McGregor (best performance - his final duel with Vader in the "Obi-Wan Kenobi" finale)
    2. Alec Guinness (best performance - him talking about Anakin's fall, Clone Wars & history of the Jedi in ANH)
    3. Mark Hamill (best performance - his scene with Rey talking in the cave about how the old Jedi Order failed in TLJ)
    4. Ian McDiarmid (best performance - every scene he shared with Hayden in ROTS)
    5. Adam Driver (best performance - his scene with Han in TFA)
    6. Carrie Fisher (best performance - her scene with Mark in TLJ)
    7. Harrison Ford (best performance - his death scene in TFA)
    8. Hayden Christensen (best performance - his crying scene in the Jedi Council room before turning in ROTS)
    9. Frank Oz (best performance - all his scenes in ESB)
    10. Donald Glover (best performance - his first and flirtatious scene with Han in "Solo")
  10. CampOfSorgan

    I originally voted McDiarmid, but now after seeing the Kenobi series, I immediately switched it to Ewan McGregor, for obvious reasons.

    I know the Kenobi series is not technically "the saga," but it might as well be!
