A list of supporting characters who stole the show so hard that they deserve spinoffs of their own (if they don't have them already). Generally, side characters in film and TV are supposed to be off to the side. Supporting characters are supposed to do just that, helping the leads carry the story. But sometimes, the most compelling characters are on the margins, or at least not front and center. Sometimes it's accidental. Sometimes an actor is just that good, and they elevate their character to new and often iconic heights.
This list is all about those characters, the ones who grab the spotlight without even seeming to try. Sometimes, scene stealers like these are promoted thanks to spinoffs, but more often than not, their full stories are left untold and fans are left wanting more. You never know how it happens or why producers decide just who ends up starring in a spinoff, but these characters are great, sometimes career-making, and we'd love to see more of them.
From indie films to the most popular TV shows, we've looked through everything to find the best fictional characters that stole the show. Vote up the supporting characters who most memorably overshadowed the leads!
