Inspired by the current "Blakes Seven" poll, and the joyous return of the Expanse in series 4 on Amazon next week, I'm wondering who your favourite character in the TV or book series is? There are so many excellent characters to choose from.

I must admit, I'm undecided between Camina Drummer and Chrisjen Avasarala

Joe Miller, RIP.

Thomas Jane's also very good in that recent cop movie I can't remember the name of right now (I watch a LOT of movies…).

Tough call as there a lot of great characters on the Expanse (great series, great books too) – I like Drummer for sure especially as she is played by Cara Gee, a good Objibwe girl from Calgary

For me for favourite character I am torn between Amos Burton (essentially good guy who can do very, very bad things) and Alex Kamal (good guy who seems to serve as the crew's conscience) – I am going with Alex as he not only worries about morality but in a pinch will always do the right thing

Amos is definitely interesting.

Amoral, but he recognizes this and looks to others for social cues.

Bobbie Draper, former Martian Marine, played by Frankie Adams, a New Zealand/Samoan actress.

Another vote for Amos

Bobby Draper.

Although when reading the books, I always envisioned her as Dave Valerie Adams rather than Frankie Adams.

A tie between Avasarala and Bobbie.

Really tough call as there are so many good ones. I'd probably go with Alex Kamal, though Chrisjen and Bobby Draper are very close behind.

Amos and Miller. Bobbie seemed a little 'fish out of water' but that may have been the intent.

WHile it will vary depending on the episode or chapter, it always comes back to Amos getting the best lines, and taking care of business.

Amos for me too but there are no "meh" characters on the show. I watch the Expanse like some people watch the playoffs.

Dynaman878912 Dec 2019 6:31 p.m. PST

Can't pick one. There are no bad characters on the show. Even the villains have relatable motivations and actions.

Amos Burton

Like many I am fond of Amos, it is an interesting twist on the violent psyco character but I am very fond of Camina Drummer.
