These characters ARE my childhood, and I can't express to you enough how absolutely beloved they all are to me. I have spent my lifetime watching the Star Wars movies over and over, collecting all the characters as action figures, studying dozens of books filled with information on how these characters were conceived, learning information about the performances, watching countless hours of interviews with the actors, and even traveling to fan conventions all over the world to greet the actors and get a personal perspective. My greatest dream is to do some official illustrations for Star Wars in some capacity.
I hope you enjoyed this list of favorite movie characters, and hopefully it brought back some good memories of your own favorite movie characters. If you'd like, let me know some of your favorites in the comments-I'd love to see how your list compares with mine! :)

Christopher Reeves' Superman was my first childhood hero. There was something so wholesome, so endearing, so human about him, that just made you want to be his friend. In these cynical times it's become popular to mock his earnest wholesomeness, but to a kid like me growing up, he was the perfect hero. Superman is more than just his power levels, he's an ideal we should all aspire to be. To help others, to fight for justice, and inspire the good in humanity.

TRUE confessions: when I first saw Ghostbusters as a tot, a lot of the jokes sailed over my head. I didn't even realize it was meant to be a comedy. I thought it was a straight up horror movie. When I got a little older I realized just how hysterical it was. Oh, and Bill Murray is brilliant in it.

We've now entered the TOP 5! I hope you guys have been enjoying this countdown so far!
For me, Indiana Jones represents the ultimate fantasy character. (Sorry James Bond). He runs around the world having crazy adventures, falling in love with beautiful women, and punching Nazis. (Let's just pretend that the 4th movie never happened...haha)

"Get away from her you bitch!" Coming in at #6 is Sigourney Weaver's signature role, Ripley from the Alien franchise. Ripley is tough as they come, but she's also incredibly smart, resourceful, mothering, and most importantly of all, she loves cats.
