Tragic Movie & TV Series Characters

Recommended Posts

What are some of the most, or your favourite, tragic characters from a Movie or a TV Series. Like someone you feel sorry for, or can feel for. 

 

I'll start with Detective Bruce Robertson, in Filth. 

 

Great video too :14_relaxed:

From the top of my head

Lee from Manchester By the sea 

 

K from Blade Runner 2049 

Bing Bong almost made me cry 

Elio from Call me by your name. 

The four leads of Requiem for a dream 

 

There are probably more that I might add later.

The Night Of was fantastic, just watching that title bit gets me excited again :D

You guys have alot of good stuff covered Ill add two and major spoilers on both; The Sopranos and Penny Dreadful

 

Sopranos ending in my mind/unquestionably with Tonys death (James Gandolfini)

 And Eva Green in Penny Dreadful as Vanessa Ives.

Another one I find worthy to mention is Jimmy Darmody from Boardwalk Empire. 

 

Smart kid, ruined by World War I. 

Also the first TV show I stopped watching after a character's death :ph34r:

That second season is still one of the best from anything I've watched. I kept watching on and off I think until the last season where I finally gave up. I remember reading the actor playing Jimmy (I forget his name) was hard to work with and that's why they killed him off... Something to that effect.

Michael Pitt. And yea, I've heard that he is hard to work with as well, which is a shame, because I think he's a terrific actor. If you want to see a good film of him, I'd recommend "I, Origins".

I'll add it to my list! I've always been a fan since I saw him in Boardwalk, he was really good in Hannibal as well. It really is a shame I think alot of that has limited him to bit part roles.
