The 15 Best Female TV Characters of The Modern Day

Summer Roberts

Summer Roberts (The O.C.)

In four seasons of pretty awesome character development, Summer Roberts went from being a ditzy and mean California girl stereotype and evolved into a smart, passionate, and caring woman, all the while never losing her hilariously snarky attitude. Summer makes this list because she not only surpassed expectations as a character but subverted them. On The O.C., she was able to be the California babe who tanned and read Us Weekly all the time, but she was also able to get into Brown and fall for the comic-booking loving nerd and, at the series end, as Seth Cohen puts it so perfectly, “go save the world.”
