Rachel Schieffelbein in celebration of her book, Secondary Characters, which releases on May 28th.
Sometimes secondary characters steal the show, (or the book) and become our favorites. On May 22nd we want you to tell us about your favorite secondary characters from books or movies, or both! Whether it's the funny best friend or that goofy kid next door, we want to know what secondary characters you just couldn't get enough of and why.
I will name a couple favorites.
First off, Pippin is adorable. I’ll just get that out of the way right now.
But the real reason centers more on his personality. Pippin isn’t the smartest, but he is genuine. He exudes joyful naivety and is always up for some mischief.
I just see hanging out with Pippin for the day as an adventurous and fun time.
He’s dumber than Pippin but even more innocent. He’s just a bundle of nervous energy. Since I am a lot like Hammy (not dumb but sometimes naïve) I can really relate to him.
And it would be fun to hang with Hammy!
He was a secondary character in my own series, The Circle of Friends, and he grew on me quickly. (Eventually he became a main character in Book II.)
Matt is a good-looking football player and a ladies’ man. He’s not a cocky, malicious jerk though - Matt is all about the fun. He’s rarely serious, and this stems from issues in his past rather than insincerity. Matt has a good heart and wants to do the right thing.
His playful spirit is his charm though, and the reason I fell in love with the character.
I'm sensing a fun pattern here...
Join the fun! Who is your favorite secondary character?
