Best/Favourite character from any TV Show ever

Recommended Posts

Jesse Pinkman. 

 

Maybe there are shows that I like just as much as Breaking Bad (like Lost for example), but for me, Jesse Pinkman is one of the most tragic likable characters of all time.

Top tier:

Ari Gold

Al Swearingen

Ragnar Lothbrok

 

Second tier:

Stringer Bell

Tommy Shelby

Gob Bluth

Alfie Solomons

Denny Crane

 

The top tier guys... for me the entire success of those shows was owed to the charisma of these specific guys.

Saul Goodman is a good one from Breaking Bad. And Jimmy McGill from Better Caul Saul also xD - I think they're both likeable, yet tragic and have done some very shitty things in their story. Although Jesse's life went from bad to worse throughout the storyline of Breaking Bad.

Breaking Bad is probably my favourite show of all time.

Eva Green as the lovely tormented Vanessa Ives in Penny Dreadful, one of my favourite underrated and cut too short shows.

Tom Hardy as Alfie Solomons in Peaky Blinders is probably my favourite role hes done.

I absolutely loved Mads Mikkelsen as Hannibal Lector in the tv adaption Hannibal. I dare say he did a better job then the legendary Anthony Hopkins.

David Duchonvy as Hank Moody in Californication basically playing himself If he chose to be a writer instead of an actor.

Haven't seen that.  Worth a watch? Similar to entourage? I was always reluctant to watch entourage because I found the amount of sleaze repugnant. Californication i feel a bit the same about.

He was by far the best and most intriguing character of the show until the writers had no idea anymore what to do with him. Shame really.

Debatable. 

Jamie Lannister has probably the best character development in television history.

Its an easy watch only 20 min episodes, I dont think it dipped at all throughout the seasons either I thoroughly enjoyed it many times over. Its full of sleeze so if thats not your thing I wouldnt recommend it. Theres alot of comeos and a great rock sub theme, they use the Steve Jones from the Sex Pistols for a role for a few seasons, Marilyn Manson in a few episodes.

It was tragic how they ended his arch, I just hope the same doesnt happen to Jamie.

Another favourite character of mine is definitely Jack Shephard from Lost. Many people who like the show prefer other characters, but to me he was the most genuine, staying true to his principals proper leader type character,  who also cared a lot about those around him. Idol-like stuff :D

Jack was never my favourite chracter on LOST, but the development and growth as well as the complexity of his character throughout the series is absolutely THE best, and I appreciate it more and more with every rewatch. LOST is my favourite show ever (as you might know, haha), and arguably one of the best character-driven TV shows overall.

I know it's recency bias as I've just watched the first episode of the new season but Dr Ford in Westworld.

Well, it's Anthony Hopkins. That's like cheating.

Rust Cohle from True Detective was great too, and he was very wise in his pessimism.

One of my favourite characters after Del Boy & Rodney, Trigger, the broom scene in the cafe and Triggers reaction when Del fell in the bar, classic. :4_joy:

Huge crush on the first.

He made the show brilliant. There has been no one like him on television, though the man on whom he is based comes close second in Curb Your Enthusiasm.
