One of the most important elements when writing a play or a story is creating characters that feel three-dimensional and real. You can help your students flesh out their characters with some focused character development questions in order to create realistic and well-rounded personalities.
We have 20 questions students can apply to their characters to develop their character profiles:
- What is your full name?
- Does your name mean anything?
- Who is in your immediate family?
- What is your job? Do you like it?
- Who do you get along with most? Least?
- Who is your most important relationship?
- Where do you live in the world?
- Is your living environment urban, rural, or suburban?
- How do you live? (are you neat, messy, artistic, spartan?)
- How do you decorate your living space?
- What is your favourite food, movie, song, colour?
- What is your least favourite food, movie, song, colour?
- How do you dress on a daily basis?
- What do you choose to wear when you dress up?
- What is your biggest pet peeve?
- What is your biggest secret?
- What is your favourite childhood memory?
- What one moment from your past affects you today?
- What do you want more than anything?
- What is your ideal life?
