Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Overview... the free-spirited boy next door. After his bohemian parents died, Laurie was sent to live with his wealthy grandfather. In between study sessions to prepare for Harvard, Laurie spends his free time with his lively neighbors, the March sisters. With their strong moral values, romantic Meg, tomboy Jo, timid Beth, and melodramatic Amy have a positive effect on Laurie. Jo, in particular, quickly grows to be his best friend and confidant.  

Personality... handsome, charming, smart, and cheeky. Through raised to be a gentleman, Laurie has a mischievous sense of humor. At his worst, he can be spoiled, selfish, and self-indulgent; Laurie’s always grown up with wealth and privilege and he sometimes takes that for granted. But at his best—usually when he’s around the March sisters—Laurie is intelligent, kind, and protective. He’s always seen himself as an honorary member of the March family and he would do anything for them.
