10 Most Portrayed Characters in TV & Film

Sometimes a character is so complex, so fascinating, that they simply have to be portrayed more than once. Different directors and scriptwriters will all have a different vision about the way a character should be. Whether they’re good, bad, extroverted, introverted, one-dimensional, or have many layers – there are so many roads you can take!

Back in 2013, Erik Lindegaard discovered the most filmed characters ever by collecting data from IMDb. Here are the results:

9. 9. Sherlock Holmes

To this date, the character of Sherlock Holmes has been represented 254 times on screen. His popularity is thanks to author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle – he wrote Sherlock as a complex and relatable detective who embodied the arrogance and eccentricity of a British man. Benedict Cumberbatch has been portraying the pipe-smoking character since 2010 with TV series Sherlock, which has been met with praise from both Brits and Americans alike.

Sherlock Holmes was recently awarded a Guinness World Record for being the most portrayed literary human character in TV and film.
