Anything Goes : Favorite Female Anti-Hero by Jess Waters

Favorite Female Anti-Hero

What I love about modern television is that we've entered a new age where the protagonist is more times than not an anti-hero. People rave about the Walter Whites of the world, or the Tony Sopranos, but female characters are often overlooked. What's your favorite female anti-hero?

Suzanne Bronson

Katee Sackhoff's Starbuck

Debbie Elicksen

Whatever role Jessica Lange is playing on American Horror Story.

Elo The Source

Danai Gurira Michonne (Waking Dead )

Jeremy Kriss

Becky Sharp from Vanity Fair by Thackeray.

Stefano Di Bernardo

Jessica Hyde from Utopia uk series

Varun Prabhu

Katherine Pierce


I know she said character, but I think she meant from films, Jeremy. Chloe Grace Moretz's character from KickAss comes to mind. Although there may well have been a film of Vanity Fair on the BBC...

Jeremy Kriss

Craig, it will always be the literary character first with me. In my opinion, all of the best filmmakers came from the written word first. The "New Generation" approaches with films as their reference point -- instead of visualizing from the written word, they have it pre-visualized for them.
