1. Pamela Hayden
The Simpsons

Age: 6-11
Role: Hanger on.
Identical Traits: Nerdy, Glasses, best friend with cool kid, walkie talkies, mother fixation, stuffed animal

The nerd who thought they were cool. I hung around with the cool kids, but on reflection, I was probably just their slave.

2. Mark Lester
Oliver Twist

Age: 11-12
Role: Confused outsider
Identical Traits: Street urchin, pale, In a world I wasn't made for, quiet, scared.

I went into a high achieving convent school full of middle class girls who had been learning French since they were 2. Having come from the ghetto, I spent the first few years of school like a rabbit in the headlights.

3. Jack Wild
The Artful Dodger

Age: 13-18
Role: Loveable Rouge
Identical Traits: Street urchin, Cockney, Laugh-a-minute, Cheeky.

I soon realised that my working class routes were some what of a commodity among the middle-classers and cut my niche as the joker/cockney rogue.

4. Richard E. Grant
Withnail & I

Age: 19-23
Role: Very English drunkard.
Identical Traits: Fully stocked wine rack, vast knowledge of liqueurs, annihilated liver, Thespian aspirations, unfounded snobbery, manipulative.

Too much of my time is spent in wine bars and pubs or drinking Co-op Prosecco in inappropriate places. I have also tried rubbing myself in deep heat to keep out the cold.

5. Maggie Gyllenhaal
Lee Holloway

Age: Mid to late 20s
Role: Sexually deviant colleague
Identical Traits: Easily manipulated, sex crazed, power hungry, middle of the road job.

As I settle into a proper long term career, this is inevitable for me, considering how easily I get bored and my attraction to authority figures.

6. Winona Ryder
Susanna Kaysen
Girl Interrupted

Age: Early 30s
Role: Sectioned nutter

7. Sandra Bullock
Sally Owens
Practical Magic

Age: Mid 30s
Role: Loner hippy/witch

I'll head out to the country about this time and get in touch with my inner gypsy, maybe crack out a potion or two.

8. Anjelica Huston
Morticia Addams
The Addams Family

Age: Late 30s

Late in life, I will settle down with an odd-ball gentleman and go ahead and have some equally odd children.

9. Julie Walters
Molly Weasley
Harry Potter

Age: 40s
Role: Reproducer

Average listal rating (10 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating
10. Lesley Nicol
Auntie Annie
East is East

Age: 50s +
Role: Old wife
Identical Traits: Gossip, Wall Leaner, Commoner

The remainder of my life will be spent gossiping with chums over back garden walls, going on pensioner weekend breaks and making the most of an endless amount of free time.
GemLil's rating:


I thought I'd take a different approach on the autobiography craze, these are characters that have/will mirror my own life to a T.
