Characters / Charlie's Angels

The Angels

Sabrina Duncan

Played by Kate Jackson

Jill Munroe

Played by Farrah Fawcett

  • Ms. Fanservice: Even on a show like this she fits the example the most, the poster of her in a red swimsuit being quite famous.

Kelly Garrett

Played by Jaclyn Smith

Kris Munroe

Played by Cheryl Ladd

Tiffany Welles

Played by Shelley Hack

Julie Rogers

Played by Tanya Roberts

Natalie Cook

Played by Cameron Diaz

  • Adorkable: She's cute, loves to dance (her introduction scene shows her dancing to disco music in Spiderman underwear), and gets very awkward around guys she likes.
  • Badass Adorable: She's a cute blonde who can easily kick your butt.
  • The Cutie: She's an adorable, upbeat, happy-go-lucky-blonde.
  • Drives Like Crazy: The scene of her as a teenager in drivers ed shows her as this, driving the car sideways.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Is seen helping a cow give birth, and knows quite a bit about bird cries.
  • Geeky Turn-On: We see her wake up wearing Spider-Man underoos.
  • Genius Ditz: She comes off as a bit airheaded but is able to track down the missing Bosley's location just by hearing a bird of a particular species chirp.
  • Genki Girl: It's rare that she isn't energetic and optimistic.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She has light blonde hair and is the sweetest of the Angels.

Dylan Sanders / Helen Zass

Played by Drew Barrymore

  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: The other girls get Genre Savvy about this in the sequels, and lampshades it. First she (unintentionally) falls for Knox, who's secretly the Big Bad and the Thin Man in the sequel.
  • Fiery Redhead: Hes rusty red hair and does not take well to having her lighter taken.
  • Good Bad Girl: She was a delinquint in her teens, smoking in a bathroom and flipping off the camera and hung around with a bad guy like Seamus, but is heroic and works to stop the true bad guys.

Alex Munday

Played by Lucy Liu

  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: She's the quietest of the girls and coldly shuns attempts to hit on her from men (but to be fair, she isn't single).
  • Brainy Brunette: She has raven black hair and is by far the most educated of the bunch, even being a chess master.
  • Lethal Chef: Chinese battle muffins! Dylan hits Natalie with one in the chest and it looks like it hurt.

Villains

Madison Lee

  • Dark Action Girl: Able to take on all three angels by herself? She definitely qualifies.
  • Fallen Hero: She had been an angel but quit, due to her arrogance.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Obviously- it's Demi Moore wearing just a bikini and fur coat.
  • Satanic Archetype: Her backstory is clearly an allegory of the story of Satan. Fallen angel? Get it? Hence why she's often depicted against fiery backgrounds and dies falling into fiery pit. "She is so fired!"
    "Why be an Angel when I can play God?"

The Thin Man

Played by Crispin Glover

  • Anti-Hero: In the second movie. He tries to help the angels.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: He's an expert sword fighter and assassin in a sharp suit.
  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: Pale? Check. Black hair? Check. Creepy bad guy (at first)? Check.
  • Fetish: The Thin Man has one for hair, yanking out some of Alex's and Dylan's and rubbing it on his face.
  • Lean and Mean: He's quite thin and is on the Big Bad's side in the first film.
  • No Name Given: The Thin Man is only ever referred to as this (either that, or "Creepy Thin Man") for the first movie - the second movie, however, reveals that his real name is Anthony (his surname is not given, however).
  • Redemption Equals Death: After he helps the Angels and shares a Big Damn Kiss with Dylan, Seamus murders him.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: Always has slicked-back hair and a nice suit on.

Seamus O'Grady

  • Psycho Ex-Boyfriend: To Dylan. He had attempted to have her murdered for seeing him kill someone else.

Others

Charlie

  • He Who Must Not Be Seen: Nobody has ever seen him, he only communicates with his workers through a speaker box. However, Dylan does see him at the beach from a distance (but doesn't tell the others, to respect Charlie's privacy).

Bosley

The first Bosley played by Bill Murray, and the second by Bernie Mac in the sequel.

Eric Knox

Played by Sam Rockwell

  • Adorkable: Eric Knox is a "warm, fuzzy" kind of guy. It's all an act.
