Top Characters Of Snowfall:

Characters are something that brings life to a show, promote it from a good show to an exceptionally good show. So, here we are going to introduce you to some of the best characters in Snowfall.

  1. Franklin:
Franklin  snowfall season 4

The first season of Snowfall has made us introduced to an innocent 19 years old boy. The boy saw an opportunity to earn money through drug dealing and took it anyway. As the series has progressed, he has become the boss of this world.  

However, season 3 indicates that Franklin’s world probably started to fall apart. Though Franklin did a lot of crime, the crazy fans of Snowfall are still hoping for him to be alive. The British Actor Damson Idris played the role of Franklin Saint. 

  1. Gustavo:
Gustavo Snowfall

Who could be the next drug pinking? I would say the name of Gustavo. Although Gustavo had a lot of rough times, he always came out with an idea for tackling them. Probably, the audience likes that part of his character most. The role of Gustavo was played by the Spanish actor Sergio Peris-Mencheta. 

  1. Teddy:
Teddy Snowfall

Who is the most unpredictable character of the show? I bet it would be Teddy. That’s because, from the beginning of the series, he was kind of a loser. But as the series has progressed, he has managed to get himself back. Some fans could give him the title of a man with a box of emotion inside.  Carter Hudson played the role of Teddy.

  1. Leon:
Leon Snowfall

If Franklin is Pablo Escobar, then Leon deserves the title of Gustavo from Narcos. Leon was by the side of Franklin from his very childhood. In coming season 4, the biggest challenge for Franklin would be to save his friend Leon. The role of Leon was played by the actor Isaiah John.

  1. Aunt Louie:

Without Louie, there wouldn’t be any Franklin enterprise. She has played a very strong role in this series so far and was always by Franklin’s side. The role was played by the actress Angela Lewis.

  1. Uncle Jerome:
Uncle Jerome Snowfall

Uncle Jerome is the one who has initiated all these. He taught weed game to Franklin, turns out Franklin came out with cocaine. He was a funny and simple-hearted character. However, if something can turn into a killer, it would be his lady and nephew. The role was played by the American actor Amin Joseph.
