Favourite Movie Icons?

iconic characters 2

We’re compiling a list of UK filmgoers’ favourite movie icons of all time, for the Film Distributors Assocation.

We’re not looking for specific actors, films or situations.

What we’re after are the famous character’s or persona’s from cinema history, coming right up to date, that you feel are timelessly cool, classy or stylish. Without him, her or it, the cinema itself would seem impoverished.

He, she or it truly, totally and forever owns an iconic, legendary place in the movies.

Ten entries will be picked at ramdon to win a pair of Odeon Cinema tickets each.
