    15 TV Characters Who Experienced A Total Personality Change — From Winston In "New Girl" To Robin In "Stranger Things"

    Some lost brain cells, some gained brain cells, and some there is no explanation.

    The beauty of TV shows is you've got multiple seasons to grow and develop a character. Most of the time, that growth is gradual. Like real humans, they change due to life experience and usually become different people than the characters we meet in Episode 1.

    Sometimes, a character changes drastically from season to season. Often, it's due to an event in the storyline, but sometimes, there is literally no reason whatsoever.

    I'm rounding up 15 TV characters with major personality shifts throughout their respective series. For some of these folks, it worked! For others, it completely sabotaged their likability. Do you agree with this list? I want to hear your opinions in the comments below.

    1. Sansa Stark (Game of Thrones)

    2. Winston Bishop (New Girl)

    3. Robin Buckley (Stranger Things)

    4. Quinn Fabray (Glee)

    5. Miranda Hobbs (Sex and the City/And Just Like That...)

    6. Eli Moskowitz/Hawk (Cobra Kai)

    7. Leslie Knope (Parks and Recreation)

    8. Manny Delgado (Modern Family)

    9. Elena Gilbert (The Vampire Diaries)

    10. Cami O'Connell (The Originals)

    11. Jan Levinson (The Office)

    12. Joey Tribbiani (Friends)

    13. Eric Matthews (Boy Meets World)

    14. Jenny Humphrey (Gossip Girl)
