Day 30: List your 10 favourite characters from books, television, movies, whatever

Okay here we go I will be honest I think that in this one it will certainly be a case of having to walk away from the computer when I finish or I will be changing them every two minutes.

1) Elizabeth Bennet – Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen

jennifer-ehle-as-elizabeth-bennet-in-pride-and-prejudice-1995-x-450A strong woman, not afraid to fight against the conventions of the society in which she live, oh and she gets Mr Darcy.

 

2) Jo March – Little Women by Lousia May Alcott

jo-readingI read this growing up and really identified with the character of Jo, battling for independence against expectations and desperately wanting to write.

 

3)  Count Dracula – Dracula by Bram Stoker

PrinceVladdThe original vampire (okay technically not the first actual vampire in literature) he was the first vampire I ever read about the first to intrigue me and tantalise with the promise of immortality.

 

4) The Vampire Lestat – Interview with a Vampire by Anne Rice

Lestat-the-vampire-chronicles-7846022-500-333I could have picked any of the Vampire Chronicles characters as to be honest they are all as captivating as each other, I cannot think of any character which I am indifferent to.

 

5) Zeke – First Blood by MS Fowle

imagestOkay it’s not actually a picture of him I googled male vampire images and after a lot of drooling decided this represented how I saw him the best, dark brooding a little bit like David Boreanaz in Buffy but with long hair.

 

6) Frodo Baggins – Lord of the Rings By J R R Tolkien

imageshThis might be the ultimate coming of age story, I love watching the journey Frodo goes on both physically and in terms of personal development.

 

7)  Professor Snape – Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows By JK Rowling

alan-rickman-snape-008For so much of the Harry Potter series of books Snape was a character you despised and hated, intelligent yet cruel and seemingly malicious yet in his final scenes you realise the true qualities not only of the character but the writing in that a few lines can turn your world upside down

8) Reuben – The Wolf Gift By Anne Rice

reuben-in-the-window-valeronAnne Rice’s werewolf hooked me, as sensual as her vampires her latest leading man enticed me into believing that maybe the Lycanthrope life would not be so bad.

 

9)  Poiret – Murder On the Orient Express By Agatha Christie

poirot460I love Agatha Christie there are some who may argue it is not great literature but what she can do is tell a fantastic story and create amazing characters that have stood the test of time.

 

10) Bridget – Bridget Jones Diary By Helen Fielding

bridget[1]It has been said she is the Elizabeth Bennet for a modern generation and they do share many qualities though one cannot see Lizzie crying over a man, really loved her character in the books which I felt had far more depth than the films.
