We all have our favourite characters in TV, whether we see a little of ourselves in them or we just plain out love what they stand for- we sometimes wish they could be real. We’re counting down the Top 10 TV Characters You Wish You Were Friends With – that’s if they existed in the real world of course.
10. Sheldon Cooper (Big Bang Theory)
It’s always good to have a friend that’s a genius. Like for instance when you’re at a restaurant and the bill comes, he can figure out how much everyone owes plus tips within seconds. And the best part, he doesn’t mind being the braniac friend!
9. Vincent Chase (Entourage)
It’s good to have friends in high places. Okay so maybe he’s not Oprah Winfrey high but he’s got a fun loving entourage and a sick party pad. Who wouldn’t want to be friends with Vincent Chase? Dibs on Turtle.
8. Rayna James (Nashville)
Is like the country singer version of Celine Dion. She’s almost as famous as Vincent Chase- well she’s like Nashville famous not Hollywood famous. Regardless, it would be a good time being on road with her, okay so maybe she’s a little old- but she always knows how to have a good time. Since getting into an accident with drunk Deacon behind the wheel, Rayna takes extra precautions when going drinking with her girlfriends. She hires private cars to drive her drunk friends around awesome, right?
7 . Spencer Hastings (Pretty Little Liars)
Whether your friend is dead and sending you letters from the grave- or you just want to know who stole your new sunglasses…having a friend that’s uber smart and calculating is always a plus. Spencer Hastings gets her smarts from her parents (lawyers) and is obviously the only one that attempts putting the puzzle together. Her devotion to the cause, and her probability of being the designated driver (she always wants to have a clear head) makes her a perfect candidate for best friend status.
6. Queenie (American Horror Story: Coven)
This girl can enjoy a party size pizza while conjuring up spells for any ex boy or mean girl that’s been bad to you. Not only does she specialize in voodoo, she proves she is a top qualifier for supreme witch. She can bring things back to life, move things, levitate, start fires…you get the deal. She’s the perfect person to have by your side, and if you’ve had too much to drink and there’s no DD in sight…she can magically transport you back to your cozy warm bed.
5. Dexter or Michonne (Dexter/The Walking Dead)
This one was tough. You always want that one friend who can kick total ass. They usually have a famous weapon they resort to using, Michonne has her Katana and she absolutely kills with it. Dexter doesn’t have a specific weapon he’s just really clean when he murders people, which is a good thing. You don’t just want to kill your enemy, you wanna get away with it. Michonne is good to have around just in case you decide to get dreads- you wouldn’t be the only crazy looking one. And if Dexter was your homie, he’d most likely bring Deb around and she seems like a hell of a good time. She’s always drinking her face away.
4. Shoshana (Girls)
Coming off of last Sunday’s episode of Girls where Shoshana absolutely loses her s*** she would be the most honest friend you have. She had no shame in letting it all hang out, even if it meant hurting people’s feelings. Honesty is the best policy, and if you can wake up the next morning and move on as if things are better, then you’ve found the one. Also her super cute NYC condo is an extra plus.
3. Tina Fey (30 Rock)
I’m confused as to whether or not I would want Tina as my mother or my friend. As a friend I feel like she would just want to sit at home and write…but as a mom she would be totally cool! You would be the funniest kid ever- I mean your mom is Tina Fey, right? You could get weekly tickets to the taping of Saturday Night Live, Amy Poehler would be like your godmother…it would be the perfect life. Plus everytime you watch Mean Girls with your girlfriends you could be like, “My mom wrote that!”
2. Khaleesi (Game of Thrones)
We’re getting down to the bottom two! This is so exciting, what would you do if Khaleesi was your homegirl? Well let’s get this clear, I definitely would only want to be her homegirl after the dragons were born. Before she was a slave to her brother. I hate seeings my friends in tough situations. Although I definitely would’ve liked to be a bridesmaid at her wedding to Khal Drogo- that wedding looked f%@#!$ crazy, in a good way. I’m not sure if Khaleesi gets her drink on, lately she’s been so focused on ruling the world and being a good mother to her dragons. But if she were to start slammin’ the bottle, we would have the times of our lives. You could either hitch a ride home with your dragon or one of the 10000 unsullied could carry you on their muscular tanned shoulders. The downside, it seems like Khaleesi’s close friends prefer not to wear any clothing…and they usually end up dead. So I’m a little hesitant, that’s why she’s in second.
1. Olivia Pope (Scandal)
Would be my best friend/sister for life. She’s so real and so smart, okay well she has this huge secret of having an affair with the President but I’m sure she would tell me if we were best friends. She has the best sense of style out of everyone on this list (yes even you Shoshana). She’s so popular she gets all the designer hook ups. I haven’t seen the party girl side of Olivia yet, she usually opts for the secret getaways with her President lover, but I mean- no yeah she never goes out. She does love her wine, girls night in is always fun so I guess we wouldn’t really need a DD for that. She has daddy issues- who doesn’t.
At the end of the day, if you had a problem she would come running in her Louboutins and she would fix the s*** out of them. You wouldn’t have to pay her and her lecture/rants would feel like second nature to you.
Don’t forget to comment below and let me know what you think. If we missed anyone special on our list let us know, that’s what best friends are for.Follow @hollywd_heroine
