    Out of all the recurring characters in " Frasier "  who would you pick as your favourite?  I'd go with Niles, although I think his part was ruined when he eventually hooked up with Daphne.

    I would pick Niles as well but him relationship with Daphne only gave his character more face time.

    Overall... out of the main cast, Frasier, Niles, and Roz... I cant decide. Frasier for his sense of overcomplicating matters, Niles for his witty ways of saying things and relating things, and Roz for her very questionable relationship habits. Them three are my fave.



    As for supporting characters...



    Lilith and Bebe

    Bebe Glazer was the richest character on the show with her sleazy and unethical tactics... Harriet Samson Harris' performances as her were Emmy worthy. Lilith Stern remained as funny as she was in Cheers. Her best episode was Thanksgiving and Golda Meir... and OMG! Hilarity!

    Gil Chesterton and Cam Winston are my other top supporting characters with their roles.

    Well to be honest I think my name speaks volumes about the regular cast. In looking at the supporting characters I loved Bebe and Lilith with a passion. I also loved Dr Nora as well as Brian Cox as Mr. Moon.

    I love all the main characters (including Eddie!), but my overall favorite has to be Niles....his deadpan humor is second to none. From the supporting cast, Kate Costas would be my favorite. It's the Frasier/Kate episodes that first sparked my interest in the show.

    Apart from the ensemble cast: Fraiser, Niles, Martin, Daphine, Roz which are all givens, the one character that sticks out for me has got to be Bebe Glazer!

    She was so delicious and devilish. I thought her speech about smoking should have won her an Emmy.


    She's so good I have always been surprised that they never made a spin off with Bebe! Can you imagine how rich that would have been. There's a great actress, Harriet Samson Harris, playing this fantastic character that happens to be a talent agent! What a wealth of story and character material! You could have mined that for 10 years or more! Yep, Bebe all the way.

    I forgot Michael(Daphne's brother). I loved Anthony LaPaglia in this role.

    I like all the main cast, but Frasier, Martin, and Niles take the cake. The episodes with the three of them are priceless. Like the one where Niles and Frasier go with Martin to go ice fishing. I really like that one.

    Daphne and Roz are funny too. Kinda cute too. Uh-oh my Sam Malone-ness is shining through.

    And what about Eddy???

    In terms of guest cast, I like Lilith or any of the Cheers cast.

    I just started watching the show, so I don't know of too many other recurring guests.
