Derek Jacobi, Actor, RSC

Mark Rylance, Former Artisitic Director, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre

Mark Twain, Author

Orson Welles, Actor, Director

Sir John Gielgud, Actor

Charlie Chaplin, Actor, Director

Sigmund Freud, Psychotherapist

Ralph Waldo Emerson, Writer

Waly Whitman, Writer

Jamie Newcomb, Actor, Oregon Shakespeare Festival

Kristin Linklater

A month or so later, a few more actors "declared their doubt" about the true authorship of Shakespeare's plays:

Michael York
Jeremy Irons
Roland Emmerich

Thanks for the list, Will! But

Waly Whitman, Writer

is Walt Whitman. He wasn't an Oxfordian because there was no such thing then. He was, however, a very definite anti-Stratfordian and in some ways a a "proto-Oxfordian." Details:

Likewise Emerson was an anti-Stratfordian, not an Oxfordian, although not quite so "flaming" a one as Whitman.
