Is it what they say? How they say it? Or is it what they do and how they do it that makes them interesting?
I think it's a combination of many things. That's what makes people in our lives interesting and our writing should reflect life. Right?
Here's a couple of story characters that I've found very interesting:
Anne Shirley was a wonderful character, very complex and lovable. My heart went out to her when I learned that she talked to her reflection in the window. And her love for stories and words were very endearing to me as a writer.
Another interesting character was . . .
Darth Vader. I know he was a villain, a very bad villain, but in the end he sacrificed himself for his son. He finally realized the mistakes he'd made and tried to redeem himself.
Okay, your turn. Who are some of the interesting characters you like?
