Favorite Fictional Character (5)

It seems that many of my favourite fictional characters are from movies or TV. This week's favourite is from a TV miniseries called The 10th Kingdom (that was later turned into a rather mediocre novelization). And that character is: Wolf.

Wolf is the main love interest in this long (seven hours!) miniseries that aired back in 2000. He was played to perfection by Scott Cohen. Wolf is at once sexy and goofy, a werewolf who's constantly trying to keep his animal instincts in check (he visits therapists and reads self-help books to try to do this), and who finds himself torn between the woman he loves and the queen he owes (she sprang him from jail, where he'd been imprisoned for "sheep worrying").

Wolf was my favourite character when I watched the series years ago. I don't remember much about it now, other than that I really enjoyed it. It may be time to pull out the DVDs again so I can remind myself how much I liked the series and why Wolf is one of my favourite werewolf characters.

The Favorite Fictional Character meme was started by Ryan G. at Wordsmithonia.


  1. haha, this series looks super cool but ive never heard of it! must see if i can get my hands on it here in Oz.

    -Aimee :)

  2. I must admit, I squeed a little when I saw this post! I love, love, love Wolf! And it's always so refreshing to find someone else who loves The 10th Kingdom, who I haven't personally introduced it to!

  3. I loved Wolf as well, which led to a lifelong love of the actor, Scott Cohen, so good in Gilmore Girls!

  4. What a wonderful character. I love your FFC posts. For the most part they are new characters to me.

  5. I don't recognize this one. I don't think I have ever seen it. It sounds really good though.

    I have not got to do my FFC yet but will get to it this evening here.

    Great Pick this week!

  6. I can't believe I've never heard of this before. I'm off to
