PJ Invented Characters Can't Post

Inventing new non-Tolkien characters is done frequently in PJ's Middle-Earth, but I'm curious to know which ones were the most well received of them. These "invented" characters in LOTR varied from notable additions such as Lurtz or Sharku to smaller ones such as Haleth son of Hama. Which did you like the best?
My personal favourite was Madril (the grey-haired ranger who is Faramir's lieutenant), as he acted like a father figure towards Faramir, perhaps to emphasise the fact that Faramir's real father could not fill this role (at least in the normal manner). His death in RotK upset me when I first watched it, though even now I don't really understand why.

"A Wizard is never late, Frodo Baggins. Nor is he early: he arrives precisely when he means to!"-Gandalf the Grey, The Fellowship of the Ring.
