Charlie Spring is a gay character from Heartstopper, Nick and Charlie, Solitaire and This Winter.


Charlie Spring is one of the main characters in the webcomic and television show Heartstopper, plus the novellas Nick and Charlie, and This Winter. He is also a minor character in the novel Solitaire, which is told from his sister, Tori's point of view. Charlie lives at home with his parents Jane and Julio Spring, as well as his older sister, Tori, and younger brother, Oliver, making him a middle child. Charlie suffers from anorexia nervosa, depression, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. He is also a victim of sexual assault.


Charlie is relatively tall and has a slim build. He has dark, curly hair, blue eyes, and tanned skin.


Charlie Spring changes from the start of the novel, to the latest publish point, he overall becomes more confident with himself, and becomes happier in general about life, although there are obviously a few bumps in the road. Despite changing and growing, he overall stays the same person.

His Myers–Briggs Type is ISTP (The Crafter), it means he has the Introverted, Observant, Thinking, and Prospecting personality traits. Overall he likes to be asocial and keep the a smaller group of friends rather than be popular and loud. He is shy and quiet in public, but when he is in the company of his close friends, he is comfortable to be loud and energetic.

He is thoughtful and considerate, putting others feelings before his own to the point that it becomes self-destructive, a core people pleaser which means he goes to dangerous limits to please others. He cares a bit too much about what other people think about him, sometimes obsessing over it.

He is loyal, a star trait where he will fight and stand up for his friends, supportive to those around him even if he can’t always show it. He deeply cares for those he loves and is always willing to lend a listening ear or offer a helping hand. His kindness and understanding create a safe space for others to share their struggles and seek comfort. He never wants someone to feel isolated or alone.


Charlie is gay, and one of the only people out in his school. He was outed in Year 9 (aged 13-14) when someone overheard his friend Tao mention it. He suffered a lot of bullying for it and often hid in the art classroom, it was classed as the worst year of his life. Despite the unsupportive school life, his parents are supportive of him and throughout the comic we see him become more confident with himself and his sexuality.
