    Considered as?

    Do we say:

    He is considered as a wonderful actor.

    He is considered a wonderful actor?

    They are both used. To my ear, there is a slight difference.

    'He is considered a fine actor.' [No question, I agree.]

    'He is considered as/to be fine actor.' [But I'm not so sure.]

    But maybe I'm imagining it. What do others think

    Re: Considered as?

    To me, "He is considered as a wonderful actor" sounds very unnatural. I would prefer either:

    He is considered a wonderful actor

    or

    He is considered to be a wonderful actor.

    Re: Considered as?

    What about 'It's time he was considered as a fine actor'? [I'm really not sure...]
