Girl Gang

This is something Christa did awhile back and I’ve been planning mine for some time. Basically what female characters would you want as friends IRL and why. (I promise this won’t just be a list of women I have crushes on.) (Never mind, I take that back.)

Gisele Yashar from 4-6 of the Fast and Furious franchise played by Gal Gadot.
She’s tough, she’s smart, and extremely stylish. I could stand to be more stylish. I would probably be terrified of her at first because she’s so gorgeous and strong but she would eventually warm up to me and teach me to throw a punch.

Veronica Mars from Veronica Mars played by Kristen Bell.
I know for a fact my life would be better if I had Veronica on call. She’s fiercely loyal and you do not want to cross her. Still though, she has a warm heart and infinite second chances for the people she feels are worth it. She’s still even civil with Dick Casablancas.

Carol Solomon from In a World… played by Lake Bell.
She’s funny, she smart, she’s ruthless but kind. She loves her sister and brother-in-law and she’s a bit of a mess. I love her and I think we would be great friends. She could help me with my accents and do all the voice-over work for my projects.

Susan Cooper from Spy played by Melissa McCarthy.
It was really hard to choose just one Melissa McCarthy character because I love them all but in the end I had to go with Susan Cooper because, obviously, she is a spy, and a damn good one. She’s capable and resourceful and very tough and smart and sweet and loving but will mess you up if you’re not careful.

C.J. Cregg from The West Wing played by Allison Janney.
Honestly, what I wouldn’t give for just an hour with C.J. I can’t think of any character, male or female, who has inspired me more in my life than C.J. She is the epitome of a strong, independent woman, who still likes the occasional man, can be flirty while still commanding respect and is smart, but not a know-it-all and has more integrity and gumption than anyone she’s ever worked with or for. And to see “The Jackal” live just once? Baby, that’s the dream.
