Previous Post

1) Jaime Lannister. The best character arc in the series. Towards the end, I got the sense, that why he did some very bad things, he was easily one of themost honourable men in the whole series despite being a 'bad guy'.

2) Arya Stark. A very developed character, who has been consistently one of my favourites in the show. Basically goes from a child to a fully realised D&D character by the end of it. Now she is regaining her humainity, easily 2nd place.

3) Jorah Mormont. Good old, Jorah, blindfully honourable and stillan ex slaver and a betrayer initially of Dany. Like the two above, a talented actor, who showcases a lot of emotion, I beleive in his character and has some good action scenes.

4) Tywin Lannister.You honestly beleived that this guy was the most powerful and probably the most intelligent and driven character in the realm. His scenes with Arya fully showed the depth of his character as being someone who probably would have loved ot have been a good parent, if he wasnt so scared of becoming like his own father. Limited time in the series, but he made an impact.

5th place could be either Dany or Sansa. Sansa is a stronger character now, whilst Dany is largely built by her relationships with the dragons.

Worst character

10) Euron. He's not a character. He's an oddity. Walder Frey, Ramsay Bolton, Joffrey - made me feel something. Euron just wanted me to have his scene over with.

Well, I guess it depends on how you define your favorite characters. Is it characters you love because in some way they speak to you, and you're rooting for them? Or is it because the particular actor was so good in the role, that they really brought him/her to life? I tend to lean towards the latter, so...

1. Tywin Lannister. Charles Dance was flawless in the role. A man so imperious, so intimidating...just perfect. It's a testament to his performance that I looked forward to him having a showdown with just about everyone in the cast. As fitting as his death was, the show was so much less without him.

2. Tyrion Lannister. The only reason he's not number one is that his character has diminished in value ever since he became Danerys' Hand. But, before that he was the star of the show (to me). Great dialogue, delivered perfectly, and a layered character who I could root for, even when he was doing slimy things.

3. Joffrey Lannister. People may say, 'You liked HIM??' And no, I hated him. Couldn't wait for him to get his due. But, that's the sign of a superior actor. A performance that is so convincing, that the viewing public responds exactly as intended. With loathing and hostility. And that face. Jack Gleeson should be pictured in Merriam-Webster next to the word 'sneer.'

4. Lady Olenna. Next to Tyrion, the best lines on the show. I really, really wanted her to make it to the end, somehow standing victorious alongside whoever sat on the throne. I couldn't stand how easily her family was dispatched, and by Cersei of all people.

Honorable mention goes to Natalie Dormer. Not the most physically beautiful actress on the show. But, my God, she was ten times sexier than her nearest competition. She'd be my queen.

And the worst for me would be Bran Stark. I was bored watching almost everything he did. I know his character was pivotal, but it was all so very boring. His entire entourage was dull. Hodor, the swamp siblings...ugh.
