The line between main and supporting characters is usually pretty clear. Every once in a while a supporting character is just so relatable, or the actor portraying them is just so charismatic, that they steal the show.
Reddit user TheWayDenzelSaysIt asked:
Alan Rickman as the Sheriff of Nottingham in Costner s Robin Hood.
How he got four extra syllables into one word for "Caleeeouuusse the gayte!" was pure magic.
Spike was originally supposed to be killed half a season after he was introduced on Buffy.
That, for obvious reasons, did not happen.
Spike honestly has some of the best character development ive seen on any show. I love him all the way through
People always latch onto Angel as being "the good guy vampire", but he only does that when he has his soul, as soon as its gone, he becomes bad, every single time. Despite being nearly as evil as Angel in the beginning, Spike learns, albeit against his will, to become a better person WITHOUT A SOUL. And while Angel is literally 2 different people with and without his soul. Spikes personality barely changes, he just becomes a little kinder.
Snoopy stole Peanuts from Charlie Brown.
when i was young i literally thought the show was called Snoopy.
Maggie Smith in Downton Abbey.
"What is a week end?"
"I mustn't have said it right"
Zuko in The Last Airbender.
While Iroh was phenomenal, Zukos character arc of a broken and scarred teen fueled by rage and shame, that slowly tears his self apart until he realizes he was wrong all along is honestly some of the best writing in a show ever.
He develops so much over season 2, only to completely relapse at the end, I f*cking loathed him. And then he had literally everything he had worked so hard for, but realized it was wrong and he had turned his back on the only person who cared for him.
His final battle with Azula at the end, with only the music and the sound of flames is my favorite part of the series.
Zuko is the best
Olenna Tyrell, her dry and honest savageness totally stole the show and almost all GOT fans remember at least one of her quotes
"There are always lessons in failures."
"Yes! You must be very wise by now."
Olenna: The woman who can out-burn a dragon.
Edna Mode from the Incredibles. Brad Bird does a wonderful job playing her and who doesn't love the way she says "NO CAPES!"
Edna is the director? How did I not know this!?!
I think Glenn Close could have pulled it off too, but it wasn't necessary.
Tim Curry in The Three Musketeers as Cardinal Richelieu, and again as Darkness in Legend.
He was truly the star in both movies.
That man is a legend (no pun intended).
Samwise Gamgee. At the start of the story he's just the sidekick who gets dragged along, by the end he's the hero who carries the main character.
Howard Shore Score Intensifies
Kronk in The Emperor's New Groove.
"Oh yes the poison, the poison especially made to kill Kuzco, Kuzco's poison"
