Best Answer

As far as I know, the top three are as follows: Mickey Rooney as Andy Hardy (16 times), Lois Maxwell as Miss Moneypenny in the James Bond films (14 films plus a 1967 TV special), and Johnny Weismuller as Tarzan (12 films).

According to Wikipedia Desmond Llewelyn played Q in 17 James Bond Films (Quiz Right)

Well, if you include foreign films/actors, Shintaro Katsu played the character Zatoichi for twenty years. He started with 18 feature films, then a 24 episode television series, then reprised the role in 3(?) more films to include the cross over films Zatoichi Meets Yojimbo and Zatoichi Meets the One Armed Swordsman.

I don't know what the correct answer is, but in the film Kind Hearts And Coronets, made in 1949, Dennis Price - in order to become next in line to a massive inheritance - decided he would kill eight members of a family who were all in line for the inheritance before him. All the eight characters of this family were played by Alec Guiness, including as one woman.
