You’ve read our list of TV’s Top 20 Character Actors Working Today. Now it’s time to honor those who paved the way for supporting and guest actors to step into the spotlight. Some of our 30 TV Character Hall of Fame inductees have left behind an IMDb page with hundreds of credits; others continue to add varied and powerful roles to their already lengthy résumés. All of them have entertained us for decades.
Let us know in the comments whom you’d like to nominate.
