When a TV show is good, viewers tend to get attached to the characters. A viewer attaches themselves to a character who they relate to or a character who has something they admire. To some extreme cases, some viewers have gone ahead and done plastic surgery to look like a character like the Kim Kardashian look alike or wannabe.
In most TV shows, there is always a villain, a character who hurts others, especially those we are rooting for. When an actor or actress does the villain role so well, especially a couple of times in different movies, you associate the character to their actual personality as the viewer, for instance, Patience Ozokwor, from Nigeria, who was awarded the veteran award at the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards, AMVCA.
In Hollywood, there are some TV characters that have created and remained in the perception of many as villains and have most viewers holding a grudge till date for what their characters did to hurt others in the movie.
