"The Umbrella Academy" became one of the most popular shows on Netflix as fans have developed a fondness for its characters, among them, the seemingly bossy Five Hargreeves or Number Five.

Through the quotes, one can discern his character to be smart, sarcastic, and somewhat selfish. His relationship with his family is not the only best either. Fans can also pick up character traits from Izzie Stevens on "Grey's Anatomy," played by Katherine Heigl, who eventually parted ways with the show, as did other stars including Eric Dane, Sara Ramirez, Patrick Dempsey among others.
