Have you ever fallen in love with a show, or maybe even just a single episode, because of the supporting cast? There will always be a soft spot in your heart for the leading lady or the main man, but that secondary character just jumps right out in front of you and yells, “Here I am! I will give you ALL the feelings!”
Yeah, we have, too. So, we’ve drummed up a list of our top nine favorite supporting cast members from some of the shows currently gracing our television screens. Some of them may have only been in a few episodes, while others may have regular spots. The point is that even though they’re considered second place to the lead, we love them just as much (and, in some cases, maybe even more) than the main characters.
Okay, okay. Yes, we’ve only seen the pilot episode and yes, he could turn out to be the worst character in the world. But right now? We’re sort of in love with the former Google exec, especially after this great line: “80 million dollars in the bank and I would trade it all, right now, for a roll of Charmin.” And we have a feeling there will be plenty of great one-liners in the future.
Don’t get us wrong. We love Grimm, but Monroe may just be the number one reason why we continue to tune in each week. How can you not love him? He’s a Wesen, a Blutbad no less, that tries his hardest to lead a normal life. His quirks and strange habits (not to mention those sweaters) make him so likeable. Besides, he and Rosalee are just about the cutest couple ever.
Coach Beiste (‘Glee’)
Does this really need to be explained? Probably not, but we’re going to anyway. Not only does she spew nearly as many ridiculous lines as Sue, but Beiste also wins the award for making us cry the most on season 3 of Glee last year. Between her scenes with Puck and her storyline with her husband, she gave us all the feels and more. And we’re not sorry.
Stiles (‘Teen Wolf’)
Where would Scott be without Stiles? Lost for sure. Maybe even dead. Or, at least, in very, very deep trouble. Stiles is the most human, most needed character on the show. Even if he doesn’t always know it. The scenes with his dad can bring you to tears in a matter of seconds, but we prefer him when he’s had a little too much Adderall. His sarcastic dialogue always has us in stitches and is delivered with such comedic timing that if you don’t find yourself laughing, there’s definitely something wrong with you.
Can you even imagine what Smash would be like without Tom? Yeah, we can’t either. He’s pretty much awesome any way you slice it, and we love the relationships he has with several of the other characters on the show. His connection with Julia can be described with such words like, “beautiful” and “flawless.” And even the pins-and-needles, barely-tolerant-of-each-other relationship with Derek has given us some great moments. For us, Tom’s awesome was cemented in the history books the moment he decided to open his mouth and sing.
