I'm gonna give you credit for this because your suggestion jogged my memory.
Carol Kane made me think of Susan Sarandon from Rocky Horror

Rachael, played by Sean Young, was the romantic lead in 'Blade Runner.' She was a lead actor and the role was definitely not a character role. I love character actors and character roles but I don't think she fits it at all. Trinity (Carrie Anne Moss) was also the romantic lead. 

Off the top of my head, I think of Catherine Martin, portrayed by Brooke Smith, in 'The Silence of the Lambs.'  She received a lot of acclaim for that performance and it's certainly a smaller role and very memorable. Can anyone hear the song "American Girl" now and not think of her? : )

Boo / Robert Duvall is the perfect example. Even though Duvall became a leading actor, he was a character actor then at the role and his performance fits "memorable character role" perfectly. He'd get my vote.

FYC (besides Catherine Martin from 'Silence' https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0102926/mediaviewer/rm1702376960?ft0=name&fv0=nm0807548&ft1=ima...)

Before Philip Seymour Hoffman was Philip Seymour Hoffman, he was a character actor and an unforgettable one. His role in 'Hard Eight' was so "character," it was just called "young Craps player;" the character didn't even have his name but his scene may be the most memorable thing about that film. Unfortunately, there's no picture, so there's:

Philip Seymour Hoffman as Freddie in 'The Talented Mr. Ripley' https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0134119/mediaviewer/rm1059100672?ft0=name&fv0=nm0000450&ft1=ima...

Viola Davis as Mrs. Miller in 'Doubt' https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0918927/mediaviewer/rm85431296?ft0=name&fv0=nm0205626&ft1=image...
(She was really only in one scene but it earned her an Oscar nom)

Amanda Plummer as Honey Bunny in 'Pulp Fiction' https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0110912/mediaviewer/rm1719480832?ft0=name&fv0=nm0001625&ft1=ima...

Maybe: Allison Janney as Bren in 'Juno' https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0467406/mediaviewer/rm4011038720?ft0=name&fv0=nm0005049&ft1=ima...   (not a good photo, though)

I think it's very cool that you asked for suggestions of female character actors, btw. : )

Thanks, but she is the main character, and is a bona-fide Star.
Looking for strictly character actors. Not actors playing a character.
A poll for the most recognizable of the actors that you don't think of in a lead role, but are etched in your memory for a particular role.

XD, I thought that a Character Actor was an actor that plays a Character.
