The 4 Most Wonderfully Whimsical Characters In Books, Movies, and Television


1. Luna Lovegood (Harry Potter)

“I enjoyed the meetings, too. It was like having friends.”

Luna’s lack of sense of reality and social protocols is very refreshing. To find an individual whose very core can’t be perverted or transformed by its surrounding because it genuinely isn’t corruptible is very intriguing. Her madness is subtle and inviting. Besides, she’s always wearing fun clothes!

2. Alice  (Alice in Wonderland)

“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary-wise; what it is it wouldn’t be, and what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?”

Alice has become, without doubt, a symbol of a certain kind of insanity and nonsense. When we look at her adventures and then think of the other girls her age sitting at a luncheon sipping tea, we can see how much more fun she has. Who cares if it’s real or pure imagination? What’s most enviable is that she truly can’t distinguish. If only I could believe all of my fantasies!

 3. Cassie Ainsworth (Skins)

“I didn’t eat for three days because I wanted to be lovely.”

Cassie is so lovely. To many people, Cassie is the essence of Skins. While she does many things that are considered creepy or abnormal without even realizing so, she manages to remain appealing and attractive. The fact that she’s so incredibly strange intrigues us as audience as, I am sure, would intrigue those around her in real life (if she existed). Like most crazy girls, she has a very pure heart.

 4. Catherine Howard (The Tudors)

“I come here to die, I die as a Queen, but I’d rather die as the wife of Culpepper.”

Katherine is fun, easy-going, humble, childish, naïve, and everything that constitutes a great person to spend time with! She was a very joyful character. After Anne Boleyn got beheaded, the show seemed like it just wouldn’t be fun anymore; Katherine brought life back to it. The most intriguing and interesting thing about her, though, was her lack of ‘normal’ reason. There’s a scene near her beheading in which all of her lovers are being tortured and killed and, while this is happening, she’s dancing and just sort of swaying around her prison cell, knowing she will be beheaded soon as well. Bravo!
