TV's Best Criers: Jensen Ackles, Alyson Hannigan, Mae Whitman and More Stars Who Can Turn On the Waterworks

We hope you have some tissues handy, because TVLine is celebrating the most tear-proficient actors and actresses on the small screen.

It’s a performer’s job to emote and make viewers feel their character’s heartache, but some stars just excel at unleashing the waterworks in ways that are heart-wrenching (extreme sobbing) or impressively executed (see: Jensen Ackles’ marvelous Single Perfect Man Tear).

Our roundup of TV’s Best Criers includes all-stars like Claire Danes, who’s been wowing us with her trademark chin quiver for three decades, and Jane the Virgin‘s emotional MVP Gina Rodriguez. And of course, this list wouldn’t be complete without Mae Whitman and Sterling K. Brown, both of whom were required to do plenty of crying on the tearjerker series Parenthood and This Is Us, respectively.

Plus, we’re basking in the waterworks of One Tree Hill‘s Sophia Bush, Buffy and How I Met Your Mother alumna Alyson Hannigan, Breaking Bad‘s meme-worthy Aaron Paul and multiple Grey’s Anatomy vets.

All in all, the 26 performers highlighted below do their fair share to keep Kleenex in business.
