Any characters you're attracted too, but you're not attracted to the actor? Or vice versa. Style, personality wise (even appearance because some actors look quite different in real life) etc.

I never know if I'm just in love with a character or whether I'm in love with the actor. Or both? Hmm.

Most of the time I think it's the character. The actor can be a real arse in real life.

Captain Jack Sparrow is my actual weakness.
While Johnny is a VERY attractive man visually, his personality doesn't appeal to me that much. I just like him when he's being a pirate :L

TBH, I find him the least attractive person in any lead actor role.

I used to have a thing for Sam Tyler from Life on Mars but I've never found John Simm attractive in anything else I've seen him in.

It's definitely the character for me. I don't tend to be attracted to people If I don't know what they're like.

I'm attracted to Leonard Hofstadter from The Big Bang Theory (played by Johnny Galecki). The actor himself isn't as interesting. So yes, it's definitely the character over the actor for me.

Both; I've crushed on Paul Rudd for years, because of his RL personality, while I seem to always fall in love with Scott Foley's characters on TV...

The character definitely!

Because I don't know what the real actor would be like, he might be a complete flump
