When you read a book, do you have a pre-existing picture of your favourite characters before seeing them? Cos I do. So it's always a great comfort when the TV or movie version of a character actually lives up to my expectations!

We want to know the book characters you think were adapted well for screen, and why...

Or perhaps, like me, you think Alan Rickman's Snape was absolutely genius!

Did you think Henry Cavill's Geralt was beyond brilliant? (And are now gutted that it's been recast?)

Or do you agree that Michael Clarke Duncan gave us a devastatingly perfect portrayal of John Coffey in The Green Mile?
