Favorite Characters and Actors

Well, true I did this before. As in, I did list my favorite actors for characters, but for ALL characters, including those I didn’t like. Now, what if I limited it even further? This time, I will only do my favorite actors and actresses for favorite characters.

Favorite Actresses

  1. Elphaba- Mary Kate Morrissey
  2. Glinda- Amanda Jane Copper
  3. Eponine- Samantha Barks
  4. Cosette- Jillian Butler
  5. Jasmine- Naomi Scott
  6. Nala- Nia Halloway
  7. Belle- Emma Watson
  8. Maria- Julie Andrews
  9. Sophie- Amanda Seyfried
  10. Kim- Emilly Bautista

Favorite Actors

  1. Fiyero- Ashley Parker Angel
  2. Marius- Joshua Grosso
  3. Jack Kelly- Joey Barreiro
  4. Simba- Jared Nixon
  5. Aladdin- Mena Massoud
  6. Beast- Dan Stevens


This is much harder than I thought. I know I love more characters than the ones on this list. Just—-some characters I struggle with figuring out my favorite actor.

  1. So many good actors/actresses and characters! I agree on Julie Andrew being the best Maria (who can compare really?), Joshua Grosso being the best Marius (far and away- I saw him live and was surprised by how much he put into the character- HE WAS AMAZING), and Joey Barreiro being the best Jack Kelly (as far as Broadway Jacks go, Joey takes the cake- though I am still partial the Christian Bale from the movie since I grew up on it).
    Samantha Barks did a spectacular job as Eponine, though I am rather fond of Lea Salonga from the 10th anniversary edition concert.
    My favorite Belle is probably Susan Egan from the original Broadway cast. (I wasn’t a huge fan of Emma Watson’s Belle, truth be told.)
    I’m not familiar with everyone, but it’s a good list. 🙂


    • True on that- that fact on Julie Andrews (I mean, we can’t ask for a better Maria; I fell in love with Sound of Music by the movie back in elementary school)

      Well, my reasoning for Samantha Barks being my favorite Eponine is for a similar reason why Joey Barreiro is my favorite Jack Kelly—-being first (that is a kind of upper hand advantage)

      Joshua did take me off guard- by the way, I actually got to see him twice (2017/2019). One of the standouts in that cast, and now Marius is almost a core favorite character because of his Marius
