The 15 Best Female TV Characters of The Modern Day

Dany

Daenerys Targaryen (Game of Thrones)

Daenerys Targaryen isn’t simply one of the best characters on Game of Thrones. She’s most definitely one of the best female characters on TV right now. If you want to talk about strength, independence, and power, Dany is the epitome of it, going from a sold bride in an arranged marriage in season one to a leader of thousands by season four. And even though she must make ruthless decisions during incredibly difficult times, Dany also does her best to be a queen for the people, someone who frees slaves and tries to ensure that all individuals she comes across have better lives. Whether you call her “The Mother of Dragons” or “The Breaker of Chains,” or one of the other fifty new titles she has, there’s only fitting word that describes Danerys Targaryen to me: awesome.
