It's no secret that the main character of a TV show or movie can either be the reason you love or hate the entire project.
And even though we're typically supposed to root for the main character, sometimes they just aren't the ones we want to be rooting for.
Don't get me wrong, they're the main character for a reason, but every so often, it would be just a bit better if one of the side characters was the main focus.
So we want to know: which secondary character do you believe deserved to be the main character of your favorite TV show or movie?
Maybe when you saw this question, Bonnie Bennett from The Vampire Diaries immediately came to mind because she deserved much more than to be the friend who put her life at risk every single day for everyone else.
Maybe you think Hermione from the Harry Potter franchise could've made a better main character than Harry because she is brilliant and carried a massive chunk of the franchise on her back!
Perhaps you're like me and think Barb from Stranger Things could've had so much to contribute to the show and so much potential to be great, even though she only had about 40 lines.
Or hey, maybe you're a huge Lost fan and thought Sawyer would've made a better lead as opposed to Jack because he simply had more interesting character development.
Tell us which side character you believe would've made a better main character than the actual main character and why in the comments below! The best responses will be featured in an upcoming BuzzFeed Community post.
