    There is a thread asking for the ten best performances of the season. But which CHARACTERS have been the best?

    They don’t have to be the most flashy performance, but just simply a brilliant character.

    1. Leslie Graham – American Crime (played by Felicity Huffman)
    2. John Murphy – The Leftovers (played by Kevin Carroll)
    3. Alison Carr – Homeland (played by Miranda Otto)
    4. Kevin Garvey – The Leftovers (played by Justin Theroux)
    5. Vanessa Ives – Penny Dreadful (Played by Eva Green)
    6. Meg Abbot – The Leftovers (played by Liv Tyler)
    7. Martha Hanson – The Americans (played by Alison Wright)
    8. Melisandre (‘The Red Woman’) – Game of Thrones (played by Carice van Houten)
    9. Selina Meyer – Veep (played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus)
    10. Peggy Blumquist – Fargo (played by Kirsten Dunst)

    These are definitely for the characters (for example I like King, Brenneman and Coon’s performances in The Leftovers more than the ones I listed, but as characters those listed I’m more attached to).
    P.S. Bedelia/Gillian Anderson would be first but Hannibal doesn’t really count as this season.

    If I recall correctly (could be wrong), the majority of season 3 aired in 2014-15 but submissions were held back to this TV season.
