My Favorite Harper's Island Characters!

My personal list of top 26 (25 main + Wakefield) characters in the show Harper's Island (2009). Each character will be further elaborated why is assuming a place (s)he does. And I kinda love all of them, so being low on the list isn't really a big dislike. And this is MY opinion, so back off with 'how could you put him in front of him...' ect. But, enjoy my list and you're free (and encouraged) to tell me your order):)

“ Trish Wellington, ''the Bride''

One of my top 5 characters, and most beautiful one. I just LOVE her, so feminine, so gentle, so lovely. Katie is a goddess. I think Trish is the perfect woman. And it seamed like a gentlemen thing to do to make her first. Although first five are actually kinda tied:) ” - alirioaguero2

“ Christopher Sullivan, ''the Best Man''

You just gotta love Matt in this role. He's so sweet and although a prankster, he's a real hero and my perfect fanfic match with Trish. They'd make the most beautiful couple ever. ” - alirioaguero2

David Lewis
David James Lewis was born and raised in Vancouver BC. As a child his parents took him to the drive-in to watch Jaws. Not only was he scarred mentally from entering the water for the next decade, he was also bitten by the movie bug. Upon leaving high school he was lucky enough to step into the film and TV world that was exploding in Vancouver...
“ Richard Allen, ''The Brother-in-Law''

I know everyone usually dislikes him, but I love him to bits. He's so handsome, funny and he saved Trish. David made him so amazing and his only fault is the affair with Katherine, which I can overcome easilly. Richard is an amazing parent too. His relationship with Trish, his sister-in-law, should have been more explored. ” - alirioaguero2

“ Madison Allen, ''the Flower Girl''

Madison is the cutest thing ever, albeit also very creepy at times. She made one the best child performances I've seen. And interesting trivia, in a quiz, I came most similar to her. ” - alirioaguero2
 
5.
“ Cal Vandeussen, ''the Outsider''

Cal is the nicest guy on the show and his relationship with Chloe was so cute. Not only genuinly cute, he was also a real hero. And I can relate to him very much. ” - alirioaguero2
 
6.
“ Joel Booth, ''the Nerd''

I know he wasn't alot on the show, but he so should have been more. Not only that he's very handsome, but also very likeable and I wanted to see character in it much more. ” - alirioaguero2
 
7.
Gina Holden
Gina was born in the small mountain town of Smithers, British Columbia, where her first performance took place at a figure skating exhibition at age five. She has been at home on center stage ever since. As a precocious and outgoing child Gina performed in all her school plays and talent shows. Through most of these early years...
“ Shea Allen, ''the Maid of Honor''

Well, Gina is stunningly beautiful, those eyes:) And I think she is really attached to her sister Trish and daughter Madison. Kinda oversensitive at times, but I love her. ” - alirioaguero2
 
8.
Claudette Mink
Actress, Paycheck

“ Chloe Carter, ''The Flirt''

She and Cal were the sweetest couple on the show with no competition. And her flirtation was just a mask, she actually loves Cal more than anything. And she's insanely Hot. ” - alirioaguero2
 
10.
C.J. Thomason
CJ was born in Abilene, Texas. He began acting at age 12, and is quoted saying he got into it as a brother rivalry. Rivalry, though, only drives a person so far, but the passion and thrill he got from being on stage has led him to pursue a promising career in Hollywood.
“ Jimmy Mance, ''the Old Flame''

I found Jimmy very suspicious when I first saw the show. And he appeared occasionally to be Abby's 'perfect' love interest. That's why I didn't think much of him first time. However, after rewatching, I can see the adorable side which is so popular by most fans. ” - alirioaguero2
 
11.
Sarah Smyth
Actress, 50/50
“ Lucy Daramour, ''The Socialite''

Lucy is beautiful, devoted friend to Trish and her dog is so cute. You just gotta love her. ” - alirioaguero2
 
12.
“ Abby Mills, ''the Good Girl''

Main heroine of the story. I think Elaine did an amazing job and the Abby is believably haunted hero. Only thing is, I think main characters are usually most predictable ones. However, big like for Abby, and her Irish is cute. ” - alirioaguero2
 
13.
“ Shane Pierce, ''the Townie''

Despite being really agressive and unpolite, I just found him very exciting character. Of course sometimes you want to punch him, but he's adorable in a way. ” - alirioaguero2
 
14.
“ Malcolm Ross, ''the Hustler''

Another very unpopular character, cause of the money thing. But I felt for him about the Booth. I think the two are amazing friends. ” - alirioaguero2
 
15.

“ Nikki Bolton, ''the Biker Chick''

First time I saw the show I just didn't notice her that much. However, second time I did and I think she was hilarious. Only reason why she isn't higher is because in between I became more attached to many more characters. ” - alirioaguero2
 
16.
“ Henry Dunn, ''the Groom''

I don't know what to say about him. I usually love the serial killers, but A) I love them very inteligent and prepared, B) I love them totally crazy at random. Henry kinda tried both and failed, since he could've achieve his goal so much more easilly if he just split with Trish and asked Abby out before she even saw Jimmy again. However, I think Chris Gorham's amazing acting is what made it worth. ” - alirioaguero2
 
17.
“ JD Dunn, ''the Black Sheep''

I loved him throught the show. Very sympathetic character, although very dark. Somehow he just slipped slightly out of my focus. I still like him alot. ” - alirioaguero2

“ Danny Brooks, ''the College Buddy''

He was actaully very sweet character, only problem is that most of his scenes are with Matt Barr/Sully and he kinda steals them. Anyway, I loved their friendship. ” - alirioaguero2
 
19.

“ John Wakefield, ''the Legend''

Ah, the main killer. He was scary as hell. And I actually DID like him, but I think they left him so few screen time and not quite well enough background. Could've made it bigger. ” - alirioaguero2
 
20.
Richard Burgi

“ Thomas Wellington, ''the Father of the Bride''

I kinda disliked the pompous control-freak daddy, but since he was shown to be right, I cannot blame him that much. And I absolutely love Richard Burgi. ” - alirioaguero2
 
21.
“ Maggie Krell, ''the Wedding Planner''

She was actually, quite funny, I wish she had more screen time. However, her going out of the Cannery was just plain stupid. ” - alirioaguero2
 
22.
Anna Mae Wills
Actress, 2012
“ Kelly Seaver, ''the Outcast''

Actually sympathetic, but very creepy and even if she had potential, wasn't expored enough and managed to pass very unnoticed. ” - alirioaguero2

“ Hunter Jennings, ''the Other Man''

I was really bugged by him first time I saw the show. He was such a douche. However, he was kinda likeably slow in my fanfic, so I don't hate him that much any more. ” - alirioaguero2
 
24.
“ Beth Barrington, ''the Single Girl''

Fact that she was the only character I had to check the tagline, says it all. Cute girl, but totally unnoticable character IMO. ” - alirioaguero2
 
25.
Jim Beaver
Actor, Deadwood

Born in Laramie, Wyoming a minister's son, he was raised in and around Irving, Texas, a suburb of Dallas. Following high school and a year of college, he joined the Marines and served as a radioman with the 1st Marine Division in Vietnam...
“ Charlie Mills, ''the Sheriff''

He was a decent character, but could've been so much more. To explain why is he so low, lowest of main characters: He had so much more potential and his relationship with Abby could have been expored much more. He had the potential of the powerful characters like Sweeney Todd, Altagracia Del Toro, Nathan Repo Man or Gankoutsu, but somehow was overshadowed by so many more characters, IMO. ” - alirioaguero2

“ Marty Dunn, ''The Uncle''

Funny guy, great actor, but gone first episode and I became a fan by second. Sorry, someone's gotta be the last. But Harry did know he's in it for only one episode, so I guess he was prepared. ” - alirioaguero2
