As a personal preference, I don’t swing that way. But while most of my celebrity crushes are those of the male variety, that doesn’t mean I don’t watch my favorite shows without having attraction to some pretty awesome female characters.Because let’s be honest – in a world where women are becoming stronger and more powerful, it’s considered pretty amazing to have so many of them to look up to. Last week, I brought you my list of 6 tv male characters that I wished I was married to. This week, I present my list of 6 female tv characters that I wish I was married to. And yes, some were just so awesome that I couldn’t resist bending the rules of the usual criteria yet again to include them.2. JULIET BURKE (LOST)
Just as I have a thing for bad boys, it seems that tough girls make up most of my list. Go figure.
When Juliet was introduced on LOST, she appealed to me in part because of her independence and level-headed nature. She wasn’t just another whiney female who spent her time vying for men’s attention – she was strong, sassy, and she had a certain air about her that was both dangerous and charming.
Juliet was an amazingly complex character, and for a large portion of the series, you couldn’t identify her as being good or evil, something which made her entirely attractive to me. She was proficient in self-defense and gunfire, she could take charge in a face-off, and she always stood up for her beliefs and feelings when it mattered. She was truly the girl who you looked at and found attractive in so many ways.6. ERICA EVANS (V)
Yes, Elizabeth Mitchell is so awesome in my book that I had to include two of her characters in this list. I promise, however, that I did not do that intentionally.
I seem to have a thing for female FBI agents, and Erica fits right into that category. A single mother (who also happens to be a fighter for the entire human race against an undeniable alien invasion), Erica is pretty hardcore and intense, especially when she goes after what she wants. She’s passionate about what she cares about – her family and the people she loves in her life – and would go to the ends of the earth to protect them.
And fitting in with a ton of guys? Not a problem. She takes charge in a way that makes people stop and watch, throws down punches, and shoots people with no remorse…I mean, hell, the woman leads an entire human resistance!
Finding the line between who I would actually want to marry versus who I just adored and lusted after was a little hard (hence why my list was long, and why some characters – aka, Olivia Dunham – didn’t make the cut.) But I’ll save my ramblings for another time, as I already have gone on too long.
