Top 5 Book Characters On Screen

Since my fellow bookling Aotee is off enjoying the wonders of Ireland and I am slaving away at work for days at a time, we've been neglecting our baby a little bit, but we still managed to agree on top 5 book characters that were brought to life on the big screen.

5. Aragorn from The Lord of The Rings Trilogy

Who can resist the ever so dashing and brave Aragorn and his mighty sword? (Never mind the double entendre.) 

4. Tyrion Lannister from A Song Of Ice and Fire Series

3. Lyra Belacqua from His Dark Materials Trilogy

Why was there only one movie? And there were 5, five Twilight movies...

2. Dolores Umbridge from Harry Potter Series

"When they entered the Defence Against the Dark Arts classroom they found Professor Umbridge already seated at the teacher’s desk, wearing the fluffy pink cardigan of the night before and the black velvet bow on top of her head. Harry was again reminded forcibly of a large fly perched unwisely on top of an even larger toad."

She did not only resemble a toad, a few other animals also come to mind. For example a bi..... Yea, we totally meant bipolar monkey.

1. Severus Snape from Harry Potter Series

We LOVED to HATE him. We also loved him. 

What do you think? Do you agree with our (wonderful) choices or do you have other contenders?


  1. How about Thorin in the new Hobbit movie, Richard Armitage is excellent as the leader of the dwarfs.

  2. Dolores was the first character I truly hated when I was a kid,more than The Dark Lord. I also hated Dumbledore in the end.

    Tyrion was the boss when he slapped Joffrey two times. :D

  3. I LOVE your list. And I was so pissed off that they didn't finish the rest of His Dark Materials Trilogy either. It was such an amazing trilogy and the movie ended on a freaking cliffhanger. GAH!

    Oh, and Tyrion Lannister is the sexiest midget alive. Just saying.
