What makes a TV show character iconic? Is it their wit? Charm? Or relatability? We think it’s a combination of all three. Iconic characters can sometimes even rise above the show and leave an indelible mark on the viewers. They’re well-loved and appreciated, and often quoted and memed. This World Television Day, we sought out six relatable, fun, and definitely iconic, characters.

Noticed the disclaimer before the start of the show? “Any resemblance to the characters is coincidental.” Today we’re doing the opposite, by trying to find exactly that coincidence! And we’re sure you have friends and colleagues who are similar to one or more of these characters, making them even more lovable.

Organised like Amy Santiago 

We all have that one friend or co-worker who is organised and structured to a fault. While Brooklyn Nine-Nine was a hilarious watch, it is the endearing and binders-loving Amy that has our heart. Amy is your typical Type A personality and her ambition and dedication to her job is what drives her and makes her the best. 

Sarcastic like Chandler Bing 

The favourite character to a generation of millennials, Chandler Bing’s wit and sarcasm is what made F.R.I.E.N.D.S for many. Think of a friend or co-worker who has the driest sense of humour and makes you wonder how they came up with that line. That’s Chandler for you!

Generous like Alexis Rose 

Undoubtedly the most memorable and meme-worthy character from Schitt’s Creek, Alexis has a heart of gold and seeks to find the best in everyone. Think about that previously-unapproachable person, who you later discovered is a complete sweetheart.  

Selfless like Phil Dunphy 

If there’s someone in your life who goes above and beyond for your well-being, you’re really lucky. You have a Phil Dunphy in your life! And if that person is a colleague then you’re sorted at work. The Modern Family character is known for his extreme optimism, empathy, and absolutely selfless attitude.

Protective like Eleven

Whether at work or in life, we all have someone we’re protective of and someone who’s protective of us. Think about your nearest and dearest or a co-worker whose mere presence is like a security blanket. Eleven feels the same for her friends and you can check out her journey on Stranger Things

Smart like Tyrion Lannister

Some of the most iconic dialogues in Game of Thrones were delivered by Tyrion. His lines have even been transformed into life lessons by many (no cap!), proving his intelligence and smartness quotient. We all have someone whom we turn to in times of need, and whose advice we value over everyone else’s, much like a mentor, at work or beyond.
