Quentin Tarantino Has Finally Revealed His Favourite Ever Character

And it isn't Vincent Vega, for some reason​

Bar a predilection for violence, car-boots and prescient pop culture chitchat, Quentin Tarantino's iconic characters are pretty varied in personality.

We all have our favourite: whether it be Big Mac-chomping sleaze ball Vincent Vega, Pam Grier's scene-stealing Jackie Brown, or any of the myriad other anti-heroes who have sent blood spurting across our cinema screens.

And now, the director himself has revealed which character he holds closest to his no doubt blackened, blood-curdling heart.

Speaking at the Jerusalem Film Festival, where he received a lifetime achievement award, Tarantino reflected on his creative output over the past few decades: "I like my actors, but I love my characters."

"Landa [the Nazi officer in Inglourious Basterds] is the best character I've written and maybe the best I ever will write," Tarantino told the crowd, via Screen Daily. "I didn't realise [when I was first writing him] that he was a linguistic genius. He's probably one of the only Nazis in history who could speak perfect Yiddish."

"I was getting worried," Tarantino said. "Unless I found the perfect Landa, I was going to pull the movie. I gave myself one more week and then I was going to pull the plug. Then Christoph Waltz came in and it was obvious that he was the guy; he could do everything. He was amazing, he gave us our movie back."

And to prove that the man has a point, have a gander at the scene that probably won Christoph Waltz a 'Best Supporting Actor' Oscar.
