Tomorrow I’ll have another author’s list of the top three character traits, but I found a cool list of the top 20 characters in movies and thought it went along quite nicely with the theme. I can also draw upon some of the characters in this list to talk about hero qualities.
Remember, this list is top 20 CHARACTERS, no necessarily heroes. AND It’s only ONE list. There were all sorts of different character lists and I’ll list another one next week. This one was definitely completed by a more ‘movie’ friendly population 🙂 (List from Fandomania)
Let’s have the countdown, shall we?
20. Malcolm Reynolds from Firefly and Serenity
19. Frodo Baggains from Lord of the Rings (I’d move this one up to the top 10 along with Samwise Gamgee 😉
18. Homer Simpson (NOT!!!)
17. Frankenstien’s Monster – GREAT character, but not exactly hero quality. If you’ve never read Mary Shelley’s book, it’s certainly an ‘evocative’ read.
16. Hamlet – but only if played by Mel Gibson 😉
15. Han Solo (yep, Harrison Ford in about any form will do) 😉
14. Luke Skywalker – GREAT hero’s journey here – a ‘regular’ guy who is asked to take on an ‘impossible task
13. Captain James T. Kirk
12. James Bond
11. Dracula – (rivals with Edward Collen, I’d guess 😉
10. Indiana Jones – YEP
9. Mr. Spock
8. Harry Potter
6. Darth Vader
5. Sherlock Holmes (definitely a fascinating character)
4. Dr. Who – LOL!
3. Buffy Summers – The Vampire Slayer – Really? Definitely not in my top 50 even
Okay, okay – this is definitely a list from ‘the culture’. I want some of us writers to make a list now and I’ll post it too. Tell me. List five of your top fictional characters of all time. We can do MUCH better than this 🙂
