Who Do You Think is the Best Actor on Enterprise?

Which main character actor do you think did the best job portraying their character on Enterprise? I never thought that anyone on this show really stuck out performance-wise & I'm curious to see what you guys think.

Re: Who Do You Think is the Best Actor on Enterprise?

I almost wish this was a multi-option poll so I could vote for both Connor Trinneer and John Billingsley. I eventually went with Connor but I don't think either of them put a foot wrong with the material they were given throughout the entire series.

John Billingsley

Scott Bakula did better work on Quantum Leap and Connor Trinneer was good on Stargate Atlantis, but Billingsley did the best job on ENT.

I voted for Connor but had Billingsly been given more to do I probably would have voted for him. Certainly they are both great

Re: Who Do You Think is the Best Actor on Enterprise?

First time posting here, but I loved this show and Connor was the first to come to mind on this. I actually walked away from my first time watching the series (merely a couple weeks ago) and wondered if that actor had been in anything else worth checking out. Usually that's a sign that I enjoyed their performance. Likeable character for sure.

I'm also in agreement that Billingsly was a close second too. At first I wasn't real fond of him but after a while and some episodes that focused more on him, we got to see some good stuff from him. I always loved the cheeky humor with him and his "pets" and that ridiculous grin of his. I liked the fact that he was sort of an "observer" of human behavior but not the old tired Star Trek cliche of someone who's not only observing but "trying to be more" human. Phlox was true to his people and his beliefs even if he did adapt to a few human customs.

Keating wasn't too bad either! That episode with him and Connor trapped in a shuttle pod? Loved that one!

^Welcome to Trek BBS JesdenScott.

I voted for Scott Bakula but I may be biased due to Quantum Leap.

Re: Who Do You Think is the Best Actor on Enterprise?

Welcome JesdenScott!

I showed Keating some love; he just needed more to do. Truth is, the way the show was set up, and how it progressed, it was so 'Big Three'-centric that Billingsley, Keating, etc. got really short shrift. Sort of like the Gilligan's Island theme in the beginning of that show, where they sing "... and the rest" rather than later, when they sing, "... the Professor and Mary Ann". ENT did the reverse, it seemed. Billingsley in particular was shut out in favor of Blalock.

Which is a shame. I think Blalock became a bit more "interesting" as the show went on, especially with her "infection" and her constant battle with emotional restraint. That was something she really seemed to push hard for the audience to notice in the end. Which is great, but regardless of the drama there, it just didn't click with me. It seemed like she was a one-trick pony, either coldly unemotional or in a constant state of emotional turmoil underneath. The latter makes for a more interesting Vulcan but I guess I've just never really enjoyed any Vulcan like Spock. Tuvok annoyed the shit out of me through the entire Voyager series mainly due to his voice. Honestly,the guy who played the Vulcan Ambassador was a more interesting Vulcan than Blalock.

With that being said, is it just me or does "Blalock" actually sound like a canon-worthy Vulcan name? lol

Re: Who Do You Think is the Best Actor on Enterprise?

This is tough. I love Scott Bakula, his work is always fantastic, and he did a great job on Enterprise given the material. But I voted for Connor Trinneer because if I'm just judging them by this show, Connor's acting is what I was most impressed with. They have him a wider range of things to play than Bakula, like the pain of losing a child in Terra Prime/Demons.

Re: Who Do You Think is the Best Actor on Enterprise?

I voted for Connor Trinneer.I liked his character and thought he and John Biilingsley worked well in together Similtude.I like the other actors who were on Enterprise. I just wish the other had gotten more storyarcs more things to do during space missions develop the other characters .Show them excel at their jobs.Things they liked to do on duty and off more than than the ocassional movie night.

Re: Who Do You Think is the Best Actor on Enterprise?

An actual toss up between Connor and Billingsley but because of what we actually saw on Ent, I give the nod to Trinneer. Linda Park, an actor who seemed to have chemistry with whomever she was paired with and had a few great dramatic and comedic moments, gets an honorable mention behind Billingsley.

Connor. Best acting and portrayal of character. Also most empathetic.

But I love Jolene's evolving interpretation also.

Re: Who Do You Think is the Best Actor on Enterprise?

Voted Trinneer, although Trip is not my favorite character. Billingsley is great as well.

Bakula is... ok, but his delivery is a bit wooden from time to time. Sometimes I got the feeling he was reading his lines from a teleprompter instead of acting.

Blalock, Keating and Park are 'ok' too. Montgomery is Enterprise's Garrett Wang. Not terrible, but not very good either.

I like Trip but am surprised at the love of the acting chops.

Picard he ain't.

I didn't really think anyone in ENT stuck out but would say Bakula and Billingsley were the most competent.

I start every phrase in real life with Perhaps due to T'Pol.
