¿"Protagonista" en inglés?
This was another word that helped me improve my English because as I heard it more and more in Spain I kind of started to understand what it meant but had no idea that it could be used in English. A few years later I noticed that "protagonist" is used in English in more formal literature circles especially when newspapers are writing a review about a new novel, for example.
It is used fairly rarely in general conversation though and you are much more likely to hear something like: "the main character" or "the star of the show" depending on the context.
Hope that helps!
