The coolest girls on teen television

When you think of teen television, you often think of the main characters (often beautiful & blonde) – Buffy Summers. Serena van der Woodsen. Veronica Mars. Kelly Taylor. Marissa Cooper. However, in my opinion it is the supporting characters that are the best – the best friends, the frenemies, the nerds, the outcasts & the creatives. Here is my top 10 list (in no particular order) of the coolest teenage girls to grace our tv screens.

willow

Willow (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) – the original and the best. Her story arc over the seven seasons just blew my mind.

mac

Mac (Veronica Mars) – Mac is my all-time fave character from this show. Nerdy with a side of cool, she makes me feel better about myself. P.S. I know Veronica is in this clip but dammit, I just love this clip so much!

andrea

Andrea (90210) – Andrea was the girl who made it cool to be smart. The best thing to come out of 90210 (besides Luke Perry’s sideburns!).

alex

Alex (The Secret World of Alex Mack) – ok yes, Alex is the title character. But what teenager couldn’t relate to Alex? And the hats! So many hats!!

chloe

Chloe (Smallville) – screw Lana. The early years were all about Chloe. And while I adore Lois, I can’t go by this feisty reporter and her love for her friends.

blair

Blair (Gossip Girl) – while Serena was the ‘star’ of this show, Blair was the heart of it. Without her, I never would’ve kept on watching to the ridiculous end.

taylor

Taylor (The OC) – screw Marissa. Screw Summer. Screw Anna. Taylor was the best female on The OC. Yes she had to earn her spot, but in Season 4 I couldn’t help but fall in love with her and her escapades.

grace

Grace (Skins) – I adored Grace. Such a breath of fresh air & a lot smarter & cheekier than she came across

jen

Jen (Dawson’s Creek) – Jen didn’t put up with Dawson’s bullshit. That is all.

jane

Jane (Daria) – Not as snarky or morose as Daria, Jane had a refreshing nature, a great sense of humour and a spunk of a brother!
