I guess you can say that when it comes to TVD fandom Paul is Jared, they never get enough credit. Bottom line it's always one that get more edge on the other. In from what I've seen that's Jensen and Ian.

Believe me, I've seen a lot of great actors, I have something to compare. And I'm not a baby, I am 35 years old and I say: Ackles exceptionally talented actor, subtle, clever. with tremendous empathy with extraordinary charisma, a great gift to penetrate the audience and soul and heart! And if you talk about some great actors for a handful of critics. what you forget in this poll? Or for you Ian superb actor? But Jensen? LOL!

Mel, you're kidding, right? about an 'EXCELLENT'? and also lol for the caps lock.
seems like you definitely have not seen really good actors and what they do. it's always embarrassing when fans say that kind of things so easily.
