Favorite Villains

Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic is Favorite Villains. At first I recoiled from this topic because I didn't think I liked villains very much. I mean, that's why they're villains. But then I realized I have an affinity for certain characters that are mean to be villains, but since I kind of like them, it's hard for me to see them as villains. I may not come up with ten, but I can think of a few.

  1. Professor Snape from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling - I feel sorry for Snape, and he's not as bad as he seems. Also, he was played by Alan Rickman.

  2. Lestat de Lioncourt from the Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice - He's the main character! The star of the show! And vampires are sexy.

  3. Lady MacBeth from MacBeth by William Shakespeare - When I was a kid, MacBeth was my favorite Shakespeare story (please, let's not analyse this) and I was fascinated by Lady MacBeth.

  4. Annie Wilkes from Misery by Stephen King - This lady was messed up! Like, where did her brain go off course?

  5. Count Dracula from Dracula by Bram Stoker - You know, the vampire thing.

  6. Bertha Rochester from Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte - This was my first favorite book. This woman scared the pee out of me!

  7. Mr. Willoughby from Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen - Right up until you find out what he did, he seems like a nice guy. And then later, I kind of feel sorry for him. I mean, he got what he deserved, but he did love Marianne.

That's about all I can think of right now. What would you add to the list?
