#WhatACharacter Blogathon 2019 – Day 2

“You know when you watch old movies, it’s always the small parts you remember, the character actors who come in like a breath of fresh air.”

That quote is by actor Amy Sedaris and it’s the reason we’re here for the eighth consecutive year in celebration of the supporting players who make the movies.

Today is the second day of this year’s What A Character! Blogathon, my day to host following Kellee at Outspoken & Freckled who hosted Day 1. Be sure to visit and catch a glimpse of a few of your favorite characters. Paula will host Day 3 tomorrow at Paula’s Cinema Club.

If you want to know details about this event, visit the announcement post here. Otherwise, I’ll take a moment to thank my co-hosts with whom I love taking this journey, and the bloggers – you’re the stars of this event bringing unequaled dedication and joy by honoring character actors of all eras. Now to Day 2 and a special list for your enjoyment.
