Everyone loves a good movie. Films and their characters have been facilitating our escape from reality for almost a hundred years. Some of us may even have a borderline unhealthy love for a character or two, but that’s okay. Movies touch our emotions, and provide an outlet for some of us to be free in our minds. It’s just for fun, and quite subjective, but here is a small list of who we deem to be the top five most iconic movie characters of all time.
Heath Ledger as the Joker
Quite possibly the best portrayal of Batman’s arch nemesis, Heath Ledger’s performance as The Joker in The Dark Knight was legendary. Ledger quickly rivaled the popularity of the former king of jokes, Jack Nicholson. It probably helped to seal the deal when the world suffered the loss of the actor shortly after The Dark Knight was done filming. Heath Ledger will be forever immortalized for his role in the movie.
