I was tagged by Deborah O’Carroll, to do this fun tag, y’all should definitely hop over to her blog and read about her favorite characters. 🙂
The rules for this tag are to list your ten favorite characters from movies or TV, and to tag ten other bloggers. And try not to fangirl too much…oh wait, no that’s not one of the rules. Therefore let the fangirling begin. 😉
I think my number one favorite screen character right now is Raymond Reddington, from “The Blacklist”.
Raymond Reddington, or “Red” is probably the most perfect character to ever come out on screen. Played by the talented James Spader, he plays America’s most wanted criminal.
Why I love this character: Unlike your normal bad guy, Reddington likes people. He really does, he enjoys making friends. He also is not evil, just to be evil, I mean he does kill people. But he’s not sadistic. He’s brilliant, he knows what’s going on and he knows what he can get from a situation. He’s also very protective of those he loves. He’s a deep character, and his lines are just…pure brilliance.
Number 2: The Doctor
The Doctor played by Peter Capladi, I do love all of the Doctors, but at the moment he is my favorite.
Why I love this character: It’s the Doctor. That’s why. I love Tennant and Smith who came before Capaldi (for those who don’t know), but I loved the way he changed from them into what he is now. He’s trying to decided what sort of a man he is, he wants to help people like he used to, but he is hurting so much he’s not sure if can.
The feels you guys. So many feels.
Number 3: Lagertha from Vikings
Vikings is the story of one famous life, Ragnar Lothbrok, Lagertha is his first wife, and is played by Katheryn Winnick.
Why I love this character: Because she can fight with the best of the guys and she can be an amazingly sweet mother. Lagertha is as badass as they come, but she doesn’t have to prove it to anyone. She is who she is. She’s also the one who people look up to in the village, her people love her because they know she’s going to look out for them.
Number 4: Amelie, from Amelie.
This is a French film about an introverted, whimsical girl and how she learns to become friends with people and fall in love, the main character is played by Audrey Tautou.
Why I love this character: Because Amelie is me, in so many ways. Looking out on the world like it would be a delightful adventure, but often to scared to just step out of the door. Amelie is adorable. She’s naive and sweet and kind, and I just love the way she grows by the end of the film. I cried at the end of this movie.
Number 5: Captain Winters from Band of Brothers
Band of Brothers is a World War 2 mini series, Captain Winters is played by Damian Lewis
Why I Love this Character: He’s a true leader. He cares for his men like no one else does, he knows how to get a mission done, and he’s not prideful about what he does.
Lt. George Rice Looks like you guys are going to be surrounded.
Winters: We’re paratroopers, Lieutenant. We’re supposed to be surrounded.
Number 6: Ultron from The Age Of Ultron
The voice of Ultron is James Spader.
Why I love this character: Yeah…You guys already know why I like Ultron. But I had to add him anyway.
Ultron: Worthy? How could you be worthy? You’re all killers. You want to protect the world, but you don’t want it to change. There’s only one path to peace… your extinction.
Number 7: Lt. Reid from Ripper Street
Set a year after the Ripper Murders, the tv show follows one of the men who on the case, Reid is played by Matthew MAcfadyen.
Why I love this Character: First of all it’s a tv show based in Victorian London about cops, just that makes the show awesome. Second Reid was one of the cops who worked on the Ripper case, and you can see the guilt and doubt he has about what happened then. He’s character is fabulous, and brilliant, with a dark side.
Ried: She was never Ripper, that girl. But you two, you for profit, you for guilt, I suspect, wanted it so. Now I ask us to undertake this. That we find a little joy in his continued absence, that we cease to look for him in every act of evil that crosses our path. There is an abundance of that hereabout and I would have obsession blinker us to the wider world no longer. Am I understood?
Number 8: Monroe from Grimm
I just recently started watching the TV show Grimm, I don’t watch it often as it is mostly cliche, but I do like this character, who is played by Silas Weir Mitchell.
Why I Love this Character: He’s like a dog in human form. Although I dislike dogs as pets, I do find them amusing as other people’s pets. I had to add some funny character’s to my list, and he was the first that popped into my head. If you ever need to watch something to cheer you up, I would say go on youtube and find some of Monroe’s best lines. 😀
Number 9: Charlie Crews from Life
Life is a TV series about a cop who was sent to jail for a crime he didn’t commit, Charlies Crews is played by Damian Lewis.
Why I love this Character: Instead of being a bitter character, Charlie is zen-ish, as he says. He’s really funny, asking questions like “Can the truth be stupid?” and then annoying his friends by being philosophical about crime scenes.
Number 10: Willy Wonka from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
Played by Gene Wilder in 1971.
Why I Love this Character: It’s Willy Wonka, who doesn’t love him? With his whimsical chocolate factory and the hilarious things he says.
Well that’s it, these are just a few of my character characters. Hope you had fun reading this. 😀
