Best Live-action Disney character
Pamela Lyndon Travers (born Helen Lyndon Goff) is the protagonist of the 2013 biographical drama film, Saving Mr. Banks, based on the real-life author of the same name. Travers is the author of the 1934 novel, Mary Poppins. In the early 1960s, she struggles with Walt Disney and his studio’s attempts to convince her to sell the film rights to the novel. In the film, Travers is portrayed by Emma Thompson as an adult and by Annie Rose Buckley as a child, where she is referred to by her birth name of Helen. Though based on the real Travers, several elements of the film’s depiction of her and her story are dramatized and fictionalized.
