It doesn’t matter if you’re 15 or 50,
who doesn’t love a celebrity crush?
With the kickass bi-cons we’re seeing on our screens nowadays (see our awesome panel from the Bi-Fi Festival ), we’re more spoilt for choice than we’ve ever been!
So to give you somewhere to start, we’ve put together a list of our top 10 kickass bi characters to crush on. Grab the popcorn – and a notebook, so you can doodle hearts with their names in… 🍿💖
1. Magnus Bane, Shadowhunters
Harry Shum Jr. (He / Him)
Two words: immortal warlock. Intelligent, stealthy, and swamped in glitter and guyliner galore. Plus he makes the cutest proposal in a burning cathedral you’ll ever see. And he can magic up the presents. Marry us too? Please?
(Shadowhunters, 2016, Constantin Film)
2. Lisbeth Salander, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
Noomi Rapace (She / Her)
Terrifying and admirable in equal parts – and who doesn’t find aloofness sexy? Not to mention she’s a martial arts expert, a legendary computer hacker AND she has a motorbike. Effortlessly cool. Drool. 🤤
(The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, 2009, Nordisk Film)
3. Shep, Steven Universe
Indya Moore (They / Them)
Who says you can’t be kickass with kindness? The ultimate combo of a cool human (well, cartoon) and a cute sense of style. And just when you thought they couldn’t get any cooler, they’re voiced by queer icon Indya Moore. Cartoon crushes for the win!
(Stephen Universe, 2013, Cartoon Network Studios)
4. Annalise Keating, How To Get Away With Murder
Viola Davis (She / Her)
Classy, sophisticated, and an absolute ball-breaker with a brilliant mind. She’s got a stare that could melt an iceberg, and could talk her way out of anything in a courtroom. Plus, who hasn’t had a crush on a teacher? (Us: GUILTY AS CHARGED)
(How to Get Away With Murder, 2014, ABC Studios)
5. Jericho, Titans
Chella Man (He / Him)
Jericho takes hero crushes to the max: not only can he possess people’s bodies just by looking at them – insert dodgy joke here 😏 – but he communicates solely in sign language after having his vocal cords slashed by assassins. And Jericho’s played by a deaf, trans actor – represent!
(Titans, 2018, DC Universe)
6. Rosa Diaz,
Stephanie Beatriz (She / Her)
Confident, independent, and unashamedly forthright, Rosa is the kind of badass you can’t decide if you want to be, or you want to date. She serves sass by the bundle, and even if she’s a bit of an enigma, she’s secretly pretty sweet and loyal to her friends.
(Brooklyn Nine-Nine, 2013, Fremulon)
7. Captain John Hart, Torchwood
James Marsters (He / Him)
A time-travelling scavenger and self-confessed lothario, he’s definitely a douchebag, but the kind you can’t help but want to snog (although, spoilers, he might paralyse you if you do). Double points for the actor, James Marsters, who also played Spike in Buffy.
(Torchwood, 2006, BBC Wales)
8. Ramona Flowers, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
Elizabeth Winstead (She / Her)
Because who doesn’t stan a fuschia bi bob? Not to mention she’s a ninja delivery girl who stores an oversized mallet in her subspace purse (not a euphemism, we promise). Oh, and she’s got 7 evil exes – relatable, no?
(Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, 2010, Marc Platt Productions)
9. Ambrose Spellman, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
Chance Perdomo (He / Him)
Clearly we stan warlocks, especially pan warlocks. Sabrina’s sexy cousin has got nonchalant sarcasm down to a tee, proving he’s got both the brains and the beauty. And he has a suuuuper cute cut-glass English accent to boot. We’re bewitched.
(Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, 2018, Netflix)
10. Deadpool, Deadpool
Ryan Reynolds (He / Him)
Even though it’s not featured in the film, Deadpool is actually pan in the original comic (fun fact, eh?). Deadpool might be a jerk at times but, Ryan Reynolds… Come on. Plus that sexy Thanksgiving cranberry sauce scene. Smother me in mashed potatoes.
(Deadpool, 2016, 20th Century Fox)
And the good news is that as the world gets better at giving us awesome bi, pan, queer and trans characters, we’ll have even more kickass crushes to choose from. Hoorah! Even if that does sound exhausting… 💘
