Select Token C# Json array

I have the code below and i want to select the child note when i am accessing 'a'.
But string result is returning null when i select the 'character' node

JObject jObj = (JObject)JsonConvert.DeserializeObject(strJson);
Assert.IsTrue(response.IsSuccessStatusCode.Equals(true));
var a = (JArray)jObj["cast"];
string result = (string)a.SelectToken("character");


This is the JSON response i get from 'a':

{[
{
"character": "Eddard Stark",
"credit_id": "5256c8ad19c2956ff60478a6",
"id": 48,

Answer

First you have to create model class You can use http://json2csharp.com/, and deserialize it using Json.NET

use the following namespace

using Newtonsoft.Json;

model class and DeserializeObject method

        public class RootObject
    {
        public string character { get; set; }
        public string credit_id { get; set; }
        public int id { get; set; }
        public string name { get; set; }
        public string profile_path { get; set; }
        public int order { get; set; }
    }


var x =JsonConvert.DeserializeObject<List<RootObject>>(myjsondata);
var character = x[index].character;
