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!

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.
