Michael Darling (2003) 001.jpg

Michael Nicholas Darling is the youngest of the three children in the Darling family. His age is 4, but Barrie states in Peter and Wendy that he still wears pinafores, and on his next birthday he'll start wearing shirts.

In the novel Peter Pan in Scarlet it is mentioned that Michael has died in the War.

In Disney's film he wears pink footed pajamas, and carries a small teddy bear with him, even in the dream world of Neverland. He is quite sensitive. He looks up to his older sister Wendy and he sometimes bickers with John, his older brother

Behind the scenes[]

In early drafts of the play, the character's name was "Alexander" or "Alex" (the name of Barrie's eldest brother), but was renamed after Michael Llewelyn Davies, who was born during the play's development, in 1900.
