hm...I'm gonna have to say Trumpkin. Though slightly different, it was minor, and his characteristic sulleness survived. :D Tumnus was really good, and Aslan too, though. :P

I would say Aslan. Why? Because Aslan is the King of all Narnia!!! And, he is played by one of my favorite actors, Liam Neeson. Aslan was the best in The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe. I didn't like him too much in Prince Caspian, but he was better in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. :D

Mr. Tumnus - I may be slightly biased since I love James McAvoy, still, he was an amazing Tumnus! I watched LWW again yesterday and was amazed by how much it seemed like he had stepped out of the book. :)

I would say Aslan, Liam Neeson has one of the coolest voices out there, and the overall portrayel was very noble and kinglike.

I can't really compare Aslan to other characters.

Mr. Tumnus for sure. He was delightful! As well as being the best acted, and I'd wager the most memorable. He evoked simpathy, something which I don't think I got from any of the other characters - not even Aslan. Overall, I think the portrayals of characters has been pretty average. But Mr. McAvoy... he was sublime. :)

For me the decision was obious- Tumnus.
It's seems almost sacreligious to say, but I found the movie interpretation of Tumnus helped me undersnad the charatcer better than I had n the books. Imho James McAvoy plays his PERFECTLY. I only wish C.S.Lewis was around to comment, because I really really hope he liked hi as much as I did :)
