My Favorite Joss Whedon Characters

Sort by: Showing 10 items
Average listal rating (260 ratings) 7.9  IMDB Rating
1. Nathan Fillion
In Firefly/Serenity, Captain TightPants, I mean Captain Malcolm Reynolds was funny and honorable which is an appealing combination. His crew was his family and his ship was his home.

2. Alan Tudyk
Not gonna lie, I've loved Alan since the first time I saw him in Knight's Tale, but there is something about hiw as Wash in Firefly that is so sweet and funny and innocent that this has become his iconic role for me.

3. Summer Glau
As River Tam in Firefly/Serenity, a crazy broken psychic with the ability to kill you pretty much with her mind. I would have loved to have seen where they took her storyline.

4. Seth Green
Oh Oz, how I loved thee. On Buffy he was by far my favorite character/werewolf and it's still my favorite role of his to this day.

5. Eliza Dushku
Dollhouse is an interesting show with a really cool concept that definately should have kept going, but even though it didn't I just loved Eliza in this role as Echo/Caroline. You can't help but root for her.

Another Doll, Victor was probably my fave because even when he was wiped he seemed so sweet and protective.

Is it okay to say that I liked Spike better as a bad guy on Buffy? I still liked him after but they took some of the BAMF out when he fell for Buffy.

8. Fran Kranz
Technically, Topher is one of the not so good people in Dollhouse but that doesn't make him not likable. I found myself saying Awww an awful lot when he was on screen.

9. Amy Acker
On Angel, they saved Fred from another dimension and she becasme a part of the team. Liked her intelligent innocence but then liked her even better when she died and became Illyria. Talk about BAMF.

10. Glenn Quinn
Last but not least is Doyle, the lovable half breed who gets visions of those in need from the Powers that Be. In the end he goes out with style and a kiss and a last little curse for Cordelia. Love it.

Whedon is amazing and so are his characters and stories! Remember when Fillion played the Big Bad, Caleb, at the end of Buffy's run? The guy's definitely got skills. I loved him in Firefly, as well!!

I think I loved Eliza best as Faith, she was my favorite character on Buffy.

I can't wait to see what Whedon has planned next! ;)

I agree that Spike was better as a villain. In my opinion, him and Buffy getting together was one of the worst decisions by the people making "Buffy the Vampire Slayer". It's one of the main reasons I didn't care for much of the last three Buffy seasons.

I like your choices and comments on them. I loved Oz too. I didn't like Tara very much and wish Seth Green (and therefore Oz) could have stayed, instead of being replaced by her.

Knowing Whedon, Oz and Willow probably would have broken up even if Oz had stayed on the show because Whedon always has to break up couples...he just can't let them stay happy. =)
