Fictional Character Meme, via SelenaK  
1. Leave a comment to this post.
2. If requested, I will give you a letter (feel free to comment if you've already had a letter from elsewhere or don't want one).
3. Post the names of five fictional characters whose names begin with that letter, and your thoughts on each. The characters can be from books, movies, or TV shows

[personal profile] selenak gave me an F of all possible letters.

Francesca Vecchio (DueSouth): Younger sister of Ray. Lively. Chaotic. Determined. A natural at driving even the calmest and most patient people completely nuts. Courageous, a dreamer. Very particular, somewhat over the top clothing style. Not exactly healthy attraction to Fraser, but otherwise suprisingly good judgement skills. The love-hate relationship she has with her brother runs rather deeply and is highly enjoyable to watch. Often brings out Ray's softer, protective side. Also: the actress in question, Ramona Milano rocks big time.

Fee Cleary (Thorn Birds, TV mini series): Mother of Meggie. Very calm, in a rather odd way extremely dignified, distant character. Her relationship with her children as well as with her husband seems to be overshadowed by inner struggle between diverging emotions. Bitterness. Resignation. Love. Jean Simmons portrays these subcurrents in a wonderful way.

Freder Fredersen (Metropolis): Okay, I'm not exactly the biggest fan of Metropolis, so my views on Freder might be rather biased. Well-meaning but naive, especially in his first couple of scenes. Actor Gustav Fröhlich makes this character appear strangely soft.

Fiona (Four Weddings and a Funeral): Sharp witted, somewhat cynical. I rather liked how she finally admitted her secret feelings for Hugh Grant's character, even though I had seen this revelation coming right from the start. Oh, and when I first saw the movie at our local cinema, I applauded when she got Prince Charles in the end! Kristin Scott Thomas is just fab in this role.

Frank Drebbin (The Naked Gun): Complex, angst-ridden, and haunted by a terrible and tragic past. Not. I think it suffices to say he was played by Leslie Nielsen ;-)

See, I knew you could do it. :) I'm very fond of Fiona.

Also, have a gander:


That problem sounds familiar, doesn't it?

Fandom truly has a certain tendency to repeat itself, hasn't it? The same debates in each new generation...

What a day! This morning I felt like my inner fannish 17 year old again, e-mailing the folks over at ZDFKultur regarding a copy of a documentary I cannot record myself for technical reasons. And now I almost feel like a crone. But a very content and relaxed one, in no mood for crusading ;-)

Ohh, I love Fiona! When I first saw the movie as a teenager, she became a bit of a role model for me, always the observer, but with so much style, hidden ironic smile and all.

Hey, I actually said something in this comment. I've legitimately earned my letter. ;)

Well, let's say "D" :-)

Oh, and I absolutely agree about Fiona having style. Perfect understatement with just that slight touch of eccentricity...

Edited because of missing verb. One shouldn't phone while typing LJ comments ;-)

What a cute icon!

And what would you say about "G"?

Isn't it? We only recently rewatched this episode, and there was much squeeage when the two appeared. <3

G is wonderful, thank you!
