From being undeniably funny to breakers of chains, these are some of the sassy female characters who have ruled the screen over the years.
If "complex female characters" are your thing too just as they are Maeve's then you won't be able to stop reading this. Sassy female characters are more than just about picking up a sword and saying, “I can do anything a man can do.” Their fictional journeys often take on a level of complexity that is not afforded to many characters onscreen. There is a courage in them that exists in both quiet decisions and loud proclamations. And there is seemingly a flow of endless motivation and energy, wits and fortitude to outlast even the deadliest foes and demons.
In fiction, female characters maximum number of time are there to cause attraction and admiration, but some of them stand out among others and become iconic and unique. Why? Maybe because they are inspiring, strong, funny, warriors, or even come with a touch of madness. If written articulately and performed well, these fictional women become alive in viewers' memories for a long time and bring about a change. They may not necessarily be models of what is morally right and ideal, but they demonstrate a great variety and what it is like to be a woman, on the screen.
