Ranking The Lizzie Bennet Diaries characters

Hello! I am currently very in love with the web-series The Lizzie Bennet Diaries! If you haven't 
heard of it, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is a modern-day reimagining of Pride & Prejudice but as if Lizzie was making vlogs about everything that's going on. It's perfect for fans of P&P who want the same familiar characters and plot but with a new twist. I'll link the first episode at the
end of the post. 

I'm putting my least favourite first and working down to my favourite character and I'm only including characters with a main role in Lizzie's vlogs, which is why I haven't included Mary.

11) George Wickham- He is such a dickhead!!!! I don't know how Lizzie didn't see it earlier. If you want picture of how bad he watch Lydia's vlogs and see how he manipulate her, worst character by far.
10) Ricky Collins- He's a well meaning character but MY GOD is he irritating. Every little detail about his personality drives me up the wall!!!
9) Caroline Lee- Debated for a while where to put Caroline because despite hating her I may have a tiny crush on her but overall she's so bitchy and mean to Lizzie I felt like she needed to be put near the bottom.
8) Fitz Williams- It's not that I dislike him it's just that I'm pretty neutral to him. He's a nice character overall, just he's pretty average to me.
7) Charlotte Lu- Like Fitz, it's not that I dislike her or anything, she just feels very average in my head. I think she's much better than Charlotte in any other adaptation and I also think we get a better insight into her life and motivations than the book.
6) Gigi Darcy- Honestly, I absolutely love Georgiana in the books so Gigi was always going to be quite high up on here. I liked the way she had more backstory as well.
5) William Darcy- After Colin Firth in the 1995 adaptation of P&P, I think this is one of my favourite portrayals of Mr Darcy. Daniel Vincent Gordh definitely did the role justice.
4) Jane Bennet- Like Caroline, I spent a while wondering where to put Jane on here. On one hand, I hated how 'perfect' and constantly sweet she was a first but later on I came to admire how she went off to LA to find Bing and work on her career. I thought that was a very brave move.
3) Bing Lee- He's just so sweet and caring and his chemistry with Jane is so nice. I just love him. He's so perfect.
2) Lizzie Bennet- Ashley Clements portrayal of Lizzie is probably the best I've seen. The way her character remains so close to the original Lizzie yet manages to be modern and relatable is so awesome. Also I love her exaggerated re-enactments of the parts we don't see, especially when she plays Mrs Bennet.

And now for my favourite character in The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. It is.......

Lydia Bennet!!! 

Most people view Lydia as a foolish, ignorant little girl and even though she still has these personality traits we see a more mature side of her. When Lizzie goes to stay at Netherfield with Jane, Lydia starts up her own vlogs and these give us a deeper understanding of her character and we also see how horrible her life with George is and how he manipulates her. I also love they way she expresses her love for Lizzie and Jane in her own special way.

That's it! Hope you enjoyed reading my choices! If you liked this post and want another one please leave a TV show/book/film and I'll try and do it. I've already stared writing one for Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë.
