Everybody has a go-to show or movie—the one they can watch on their worst and best of days, the one they can watch alone or with anyone else, and the one that they watch for unconditional emotional support and inspiration. More often than not, the characters from these shows speak to us in ways only a few could. We reach out to them for different reasons—comfort, safety, familiarity, inspiration, and more. There’s a lot that we can tell about your personality, likes, and dislikes based on your most-binged shows and favourite characters. For a long time now, female characters have been taking centre stage across shows and movies and we’re here to decode YOU, based on your favourite ones. Read on.
Emily Cooper, Emily in Paris
We’re all heart for you if you love Emily Cooper as much as we do. If you’ve caught yourself watching the show a few times just to watch Emily Cooper working her charm, then we can say: You’re a sweet talker (we mean this in a good way, really) and super creative. You’re constantly thinking on your feet and out of the box and have an extremely solution-oriented mindset. Your friends love you for your adorable personality, your adventurous side, and even your sometimes clumsy behaviour. You’re super confident about your choices, though it may take you a while to get there.
Lorelai Gilmore, Gilmore Girls
All those who love this quirky, strong, independent, super-cool mom, we know for sure that you can’t survive without coffee. You’re the kind of person who makes heads turn the minute you walk into a room (no, we aren’t flattering you). You’re a dedicated and focused professional, and are aware of all your responsibilities at the workplace. You also know where to draw your boundaries and how to have a good time. You take pride in your weird quirks and embrace all things crazy about yourself. Your loved ones can’t get enough of your ever-infectious energy.
Pooja Sharma a.k.a Poo, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham
You are PHAT (Pretty, hot and tempting—just in case). Fin. If you’ve watched Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham an umpteen number of times only for Kareena Kapoor, we’re all heart for you. There’s no one more iconic than Poo, and if she is one of your favourite female characters, here’s what we know. You thrive in drama—whether it’s in your life or someone else’s. You know your worth and would never settle for anything less. People around you may think you’re nothing but frills because of what you put out for people to see, but those who really care about you, know that you’re deeply sensitive, intelligent, and super lovable.
Sutton Brady, The Bold Type
If your favourite character from the show The Bold Type is Sutton Brady—there’s lots that we can tell about you. First of all, you’re extremely ambitious. Like Brady, you like to make choices for yourself without worrying about what others think of you. You’re super passionate about your work and life itself, and would love nothing but a spontaneous adventure with your best friends. You bring a whole lot of love and commitment to any and every relationship that you’re in and you wouldn’t have it any other way. You take your time in processing emotions and find solace in your closest friends.
Laila, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
If you resonate with Laila's character from Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, you always seek inspiration. You love travelling, meeting new people, and having different experiences. You would love to be impulsive but haven’t dared to take that chance yet (that’s why you’re still watching her). Your friends love you for your limitless excitement and thrill for life.
Aisha Banerjee, Wake up Sid
We are sure you’re a creative soul and a lover of stories, if your favourite female character is Aisha Banerjee from Wake up Sid. You inspire people around you to value the little things in life—warm hugs, hot chocolate dates, Polaroid pictures, and more. You love being on your own but are also ever-ready to share a conversation with someone over a cup of tea or on your building terrace. You are fearless. You’re a dreamer.
Rachel Zane, Suits
Bold. Confident. Smooth. Stunning. These are only a few words we would use to describe you if you relate to or your favourite character is Rachel Zane. Like Zane, you often doubt your abilities to get work done but prove yourself wrong each time. You want to be fiercely independent and nothing can get in the way of that goal. Your friends love you for your exquisite taste in food and fashion, and your 3.00 a.m.-friend nature.
