Danielle de Barbarac
|Drew Barrymore as Danielle de Barbarac in Ever After|
Although "Beauty and The Beast" is my favorite fairytale, there is no denying that deep down inside there will always be a love for Cinderella. No one did the character of Cinderella justice than Drew Barrymore as Danielle de Barabarac in Ever After. Set in 16th-century France, Ever After combined both history and fantasy together and Danielle was created to be a woman ahead of her time. Intelligent, kind and courageous, Danielle had all the aspects that made Cinderella the beloved princess she has always been, but there was slight modern touch as well, as an educated woman with opinions and ideas that may have seemed extreme for a women to be talking about. There are no complaints about this character!

In BBC's Merlin Lady Morgana is introduced as a generous and bold young women who shows no fear in standing up to her foster father, King Uther Pendragon. She is best friends with her maid Gwen, immediately befriends Merlin and plays a constant game of cat and mouse with her foster brother, Prince Arthur. Then Morgana's once happy and idyllic world begins to crash down around her when she begins to possess sorcery, which is forbidden in the kingdom of Albion and is punishable by death. Slowly, Morgana turns from the sweet lady to a conniving sorceress who is bent on making Uther (and eventually Arthur) pay for their injustice toward those with magic abilities. I loved how they made Morgana such a complex and multi-faceted character and as her character develops, you begin to see her downfall as a sorceress.

4. That I'd want to be friends with
|Candice Accola as Caroline Forbes in The Vampire Diaries|
We all need that one friend who is always going to be honest, whether we want honesty or not. In The Vampire Diaries, Caroline Forbes has honest opinions down to an art form. After Caroline makes the transition from human to vampire as well as the transition from the insecure popular girl to badass independent woman, she becomes a person whose knowledgeable advise becomes an absolute asset in the story. Caroline cares deeply for the ones she loves and her outspoken nature is only to protect people from feeling the pain that she is so often use to feeling. Of all the characters in the show, Caroline is the one that is hurt and abused the most and that pain is what fuels her to be strong for those who aren't.

Lana Lang (Smallville)
|Kristen Kreuk as Lana Lang in Smallville|
Lana Lang is the girl that you envy and yet still want to be friends with. Despite her pretty face, Lana is lonely and searches for a purpose in her life. In the beginning of Smallville Lana is Clark's love interest and both of them go through an on-again/off-again relationship throughout their high school years. At that time, Lana was a fun and engaging character who came out of her shell and began to open up more to people. Then after high school, her character really began to stray. It's almost of if the writers didn't know what to do with her and so they kept on having her make these awful life choices that didn't seem to make sense for her practical character. Thankfully Lana's departure from the show (season 8) was well written, but I believe the writers could have given her more potential.
And if you just want to do it, go ahead!
