    For me it was tied between K2 and Chirrut. I actually meant to vote for K2, but derped out and selected Chirrut instead- oh well, haha.

    Btw, I really enjoyed Saw and Director Krennic as interesting characters (actors did a great job), but I wouldn't saw they were my favorite characters of the movie.

    I chose Cassian Andor, as I found him to have the most depth out the characters and an good foil for Jyn. Plus it's great to see spy as an major character in star wars, even if he wasn't a bothan. :p

    K2 is easily the best character. For a droid he has the most character in Rogue One....

    Good group and overall cast. Liked Saw a lot and hope to see a great deal more story on him.

    Nice that they lifted the Kytle Katarn/Jan Ors characters from JK and simply swapped positions and genders for this leads in this film. It worked marvelously. I was disappointed when they "blew away" the EU but glad to see them taking the best writing and ideas for the new material.

    Voted for Krennic. I've always liked opportunistic, power-hungry Imperial officers.
    Some of his lines during the first scene especially the way he delivered them made me laugh, "My condolences... Search the house!" and "Oh look its Lyra, back from the dead. It's a miracle"

    Plus, he had a pretty awesome cape.

    Kinda sad to see Baze with only two votes. He was a fantastic character.

    Yeah, Krennic makes me laugh quite a bit. I love his first line, and how he gestures around after asking "really?". Krennic has only been in Catalyst and Rogue One and I already find him more compelling than Grand Moff Tarkin I suppose it's just easier to root for someone who is so put-upon. Plus, I kind of felt bad for Krennic. I mean he is evil, but not as much as his superiors.

    If you can't tell, Krennic is my favorite.

    Despite having watched ANH probably somewhere between 500-1,000 times in my lifetime, I honestly began questioning whether or not Blue Leader was a character in ANH when I first saw Rogue One. That character is so ingeniously conceived and realized.

    As much as I love K2SO, I went with Krennic. He's powerful but powerLESS when Tarkin is around, he's confident and aspirational, he's just a great character. Not your average cut-and-paste bad guy. To the point that you feel kind of sorry for him when Tarkin is undermining his every step.

    Plus Mendo put on a great performance. The delivery of the lines and the nuances to the performance are fantastic.

    Absolute shame they never kept that "the power we are dealing with here is immeasurable" line from the trailers!

    If it makes any difference, I liked Jyn and Cassian and thought the actors were a good fit for the lead roles, but I got teary-eyed when Bodhi, Chirrut, Baze, and K2 died, but NOT with Jyn & Cassian, strangely enough...

    I agree, Krennic is actually my favorite character in the movie. One could argue that the things he does are for good reason and not wholly evil, and he stands against Tarkin whose character is actually seemingly developed more by the movie as well.

    Krennic was lucky and got an opportunity to work for the Advanced Weapons Division. he fights and claws his way against more privileged people and knows that this weapons systems function is he one shot to become more. Right at the cusp of achievement, Tarkin executes his ruthless nature and snubs Krennic's plans, culminating in Krennics death by essentially what is his lifework.

    I had to pick Chirrut. I actually started to tear up when he died.

    Cassian, by far. The scene when he meets with, and later kills, his informant on the Ring of Kafrene is when I knew this wasn't going to be like a "classic" Star Wars movie, but something different. His moral dilemma is the arc I felt most invested in throughout the film, and some of my favorite scenes directly involve either his choices, his struggle with making a choice, or the rationale behind what he does: the aforementioned Ring of Kafrene scene, his silent internal struggle with whether to follow orders and kill Galen or follow his conscience and let him life, and his "I've been in this fight since I was six years old" speech to Jyn. A fantastic, morally complex character perfectly brought to life by Luna's performance, and he looks cool to boot.
