From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In theater, the confidant (feminine: confidante, same pronunciation) character is usually someone the lead character confides in and trusts. Typically, these consist of the best friend, relative, doctor or boss. The confidant character is most common in romantic comedy films but often appears in other genres.

Examples of a confidant character, would be Rob Reiner to Bruce Willis in The Story of Us, Dr James Wilson to Dr Gregory House in House, M.D. or Charles S. Dutton to Johnny Depp in Nick of Time, Will to Grace in Will & Grace or Insectosaurus to The Missing Link in Monsters vs Aliens.
