How to use protagonist in a sentence?

  1. Nick Adams:

    As the first playable transgender protagonist in a major studio release, Tyler is an important step forward for representation in gaming.

  2. Anuj Somany:

    Speaking about the ultimate reality of life to a very large majority of people is like narrating an epic story in full detail to them and then in the end only getting a basic question from them as who the lead protagonist was there in this whole tale.

  3. Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi:

    If being a protagonist means playing at running after other people's bombardments, then I say 'no thank you'.

  4. Hunter S. Thompson:

    Gonzo journalism is a style of reporting based on William Faulkner's idea that the best fiction is far more true than any kind of journalism -- and the best journalists have always known this. True gonzo reporting needs the talents of a master journalist, the eye of an artist/photographer and the heavy balls of an actor. Because the writer must be a participant in the scene, while he's writing it -- or at least taping it, or even sketching it. Or all three. Probably the closest analogy to the ideal would be a film director/producer who writes his own scripts, does his own camera work and somehow manages to film himself in action, as the protagonist or at least a main character.

  5. Maire Claire:

    Diversity is important in Hollywood, and I would never want to feel like I was playing a character that was offensive, also, having a franchise with a female protagonist driving it is such a rare opportunity. Certainly, I feel the enormous pressure of that — the weight of such a big property on my shoulders.
