Ranking All Main Characters From Boardwalk Empire

Boardwalk Empire Characters Ranked Worst To Best


With a new year comes not just new TV shows to get our claws stuck into, but it's also an opportunity to revisit older series' or finally get round to watching a few critically acclaimed that previously passed us by.

As we push forward with the roaring 2020's, there's a strange nostalgia for a critically acclaimed series set almost a hundred years ago. I'm talking of course about HBO's incredible prohibition era gangster series, Boardwalk Empire.

For five seasons, we watched the rise and fall of an Atlantic City bootlegger whose navigation through the era of bathtub gin, cigarette girls and pin-striped suits also brought him into regular contact with some of histories most prolific criminal figures. And in doing so, gave audiences amazing and honourable performances that have to be seen to be believed.

Even though you were watching a show about immoral, criminal outlaws, it was hard not to root for most of the faces on screen. And while they weren't some of the nicest chaps in history, there were little cheers when they came victorious over the law.

In this list, I'll be ranking from worst to best, every person across the five seasons of Boardwalk Empire who was credited at some point as a main character.


I overthink a lot of things. Will talk about pretty much anything for a great length of time. I'm obsessed with General Slocum from the 2002 Spider-Man film. I have questions that were never answered in that entire trilogy!
