The saying goes, never work with animals or children… but every now and then it’s the kid in the film that completely steals the show. These are my favourite pint-sized scene stealers.

My top 10 movie characters

I enjoyed doing last week’s top 10 so much, that I thought I might do a few more. So this time it’s my favourite movie characters… the ones I laughed at, was intrigued by, fell in love with and couldn’t take my eyes off.

GrandfatherGrandfather
Film: Everything is Illuminated (2005)
Played by: Boris Leskin
Quote: Grandfather actually says very little himself, but this quote from Alex kind of sums him up
“This is Sammy Davis Jr. Jr… She is Grandfather’s Seeing Eye bitch. Father purchased her for him not because he believes Grandfather is blind, but because a Seeing Eye bitch is also a good thing for people who pine for the opposite of loneliness. In truth, Father did not purchase her at all, but merely retrieved her from the home for forgetful dogs. Because of this, she is not a real Seeing Eye bitch, and is also mentally deranged.”
