Did you ever want to BE a tv character? :)

... either from a past or present tv show? ...for any reason, big or small?

I was just watching a very old episode of The Avengers for the first time in decades. I remember when I watched it as a very young girl, I desperately wanted to be Emma Peel. I thought she was so cool and sophisticated. I wanted to speak like her, even though I didn't understand at the time it was a British accent, I wanted my hair to perfectly flip like hers, and I especially wanted to wear that black patent leather catsuit! {#emotions_dlg.tt1}

Anyone else?

First person who pops into my head is Marlo Thomas in That Girl. I wanted her big pouf of bangs and would stuff a wad of cotton under mine and then tape it down with pink hair tape. I would have liked Samantha Stevens' twitchy nose, too.

I would like to play a fun role...evil with a sense of humor...like Eva Longoria in Desperate Housewives. Real life...might take me a few minutes to think on that?

It took me a minute to figure out you meant "bangs". That's so funny!

No. The guys on TV were always more interesting.

I wanted to be an NFL linebacker.

Focksie? Do you know that Diana Rigg has a role in Game of Thorns? It took me ages to realize who she was.

Mary Richards so I could turn the world on with my smile

It's always a victory for me when I remember why I entered a room.

Lily Munster - I liked the house.

There are many elements: wind, fire, water
But none quite like the element of surprise
