      Adiwiraku brings about real-life settings about a teacher’s determination to inspire and motivate her students to reach for greater heights in life. The character is defined by what he or she does, not by what they say. Hence, this research study analyses the physical, sociology and psychological aspects of the female protagonist in dealing with conflicts and challenges as a teacher. Psychological development of the character is a critical influence in order to understand the character’s behaviour. This research uses qualitative research mode with Reissman’s performative analysis method as the study design. The selected design of this study is to analyse the application of the Tridimensional Bone Structure to analyse the female teacher protagonist, which influenced the students’ behaviour and in encouraging the learning of the English language. The ultimate finding shows that, although her physical attributes may have deemed her as an outsider, but, Cheryl Ann Fernando won over the Malay community’s acceptance, admiration and trust. In the given sociological conditions, she is flexible, adaptable and nurtures the students with values, in the classroom and also their personal aspect. Her various teaching methods to uplift the students’ English standards signifies the psychological aspects of her values and character. This research study proves that the ‘Tridimensional Bone Structure’ is an approach that can be used in developing and determining the behaviour and characteristics of the protagonist character in films, which can provide an incentive of aspirations to the Malaysian community.
