The year that was 2013 has almost run its course, so the time has come for Team Twitch to pool its ever-growing troupe of contributors from the four corners of the planet, gather its collective thoughts and pay special tribute to those films that have made a particularly strong impact over the past twelve months.
While everybody remembers the show-stopping performances from the glamourous A-listers in the lead roles, the ones with the dramatic arcs, unresolved issues and bountiful opportunities to blow the audience's socks off, they would be nowhere without their supporting cast (unless they're Robert Redford, but hey!). Below are a collection of our favourite supporting performances from 2013 from some of the finst actors and actresses working today.
Todd Brown, Peter Martin, Ryland Aldrich, Brian Clark, Ben Umstead, Jaime Grijalba Gomez, Shelagh M. Rowan-Legg, Ard Vijn, Patryk Czekaj, Joshua Chaplinsky, Eric Ortiz Garcia, Niels Matthijs, Patrick Holzapfel, Kurt Halfyard, Christopher O'Keeffe, Dustin Chang, J Hurtado, Jim Tudor, Ben Croll, Pierce Conran, Jason Gorber, Kwenton Bellette and Ernesto Zelaya Miñano
