42. Arthur Kipps (“The Woman in Black”)
The boy who lived, come to die … except this is not the boy you remember. Daniel Radcliffe broke away from the “Harry Potter” mold he’s best known for with this bone-chilling thriller, playing a widowed father and lawyer forced to take on a haunting assignment in order to keep his job and provide for his young son. It’s a radically different character than Radcliffe has ever given us before, and it’s one that we won’t soon forget. — Josh Wigler
