McKenna (Liana Liberato)

First Appears: Season 1/ Episode 1 “…Stiff As A Board”

Character Introduction

McKenna appears to be the innocent one of her friend’s group. You know, the one least experienced with boys, girls, and the other options out there. The one who is seen as the nice one, the boring one, and who you kind of question, why is she part of that group?


Dorian Brown Pham As Deb

First Appears: Season 1/ Episode 1 “…Stiff As A Board”

Character Introduction

McKenna’s mom still seems to be reeling from McKenna’s twin sister, Jenny, dying of a heart attack. That and seemingly being a divorcee, with a whole lot of bills, and trying to manage that stress with alcohol. Making the fact McKenna is a good kid, genuinely, perhaps the one thing which keeps her from hitting the bottle harder.


Peyton List As Olivia

First Appears: Season 1/ Episode 1 “…Stiff As A Board”

Character Introduction

While not wealthy, Olivia certainly has more money than the other girls, and that includes a clothing budget. One which doesn’t mean her going out for clothes but seemingly them being brought to her. But, despite having money, don’t begin to label her as a mean girl type. Olivia might be down for a prank but doesn’t seem to seek out strangers or the less fortunate. She seems to stick to her boyfriend Isaac who pranks her right back. All in good fun.


Ajiona Alexus As Candace

Candace (Ajiona Alexus)

First Appears: Season 1/ Episode 1 “…Stiff As A Board”

Character Introduction

Candace may very well be the last person to join the group, before Violet, and it wasn’t something everyone could agree on. Between it being noted she smelled like play-doh, and seemed conceited, when the girls were in Elementary, they weren’t sure about her. Now they realize she is cool and while Candace seems closer to Alex than the rest, they are all good friends.


Brianne Tju As Alex

First Appears: Season 1/ Episode 1 “…Stiff As A Board”

Character Introduction

Eccentric, queer, and often seeming like she is waiting on a 90s girl group to discover her, Alex is probably the second most outgoing person out of the group. Second only to Olivia. Though, one could argue that Alex is a bit more open to new things and people, so we may see that she is possibly the most approachable out of everyone.


Brent Rivera As Isaac

First Appears: Season 1/ Episode 1 “…Stiff As A Board”

Character Introduction

McKenna’s neighbor Trey used to be one of her best friends. However, be it him dealing drugs or puberty, something happened where now they have a passive-aggressive beef going.


Haley Ramm As Violet

Violet (Haley Ramm)

First Appears: Season 1/ Episode 1 “…Stiff As A Board”

Character Introduction

The new girl in town, Violet now lives with her grandmother and seemingly has an obsession with McKenna and her friends. It isn’t clear why but the way she talks about them, privately, makes it sound like she is out for revenge. Also, it seems Violet has either a tumor, some kind of nasty wart, or maybe something demonic, in her lower back. Which may very well give her the ability to curse people and cause their deaths.

Dylan Sprayberry As Henry

Henry (Dylan Sprayberry)

First Noted: Season 1/ Episode 2 “…Pretty as a Picture”

Character Introduction

Touted as not being as he seems by Trey, in McKenna’s eyes, like younger sister Olivia, Henry is a nice person. Currently, he goes to USC, where he used to play tennis and, when we meet him, he is in town for Olivia’s 18th birthday. Giving McKenna, who has a crush on him, only a few days to make a move or possibly let a college girl snatch him up.


Chachi Gonzales As Noreen

Noreen (Chachi Gonzales) calling out Olivia for being anti-bullying but, from her eyes, she bullied the new girl.
Noreen (Chachi Gonzales): When your little machine sprayed red crap all over the new girl?

First Appears: Season 1/ Episode 2 “…Pretty as a Picture”

Character Introduction

It isn’t confirmed what is Noreen’s issue with Olivia, but you can definitely assume she didn’t vote for her to be her class president.


Shelley Robertson As Gloria

First Appears: Season 1/ Episode 2 “…Pretty as a Picture”

Character Introduction

Gloria is Candace’s mom, and hints to the idea that Candace feels like she is in Olivia’s shadow. Now, whether that is academically, in terms of her friend group, or life in general? That hasn’t been revealed to us just yet.


Alex Lange As Marc

Marc (Alex Lange)

First Noted: Season 1/ Episode 5 “…Mad As A Hatter”

Character Introduction

From what we initially learn about Marc, he formerly dated Violet before committing suicide. Also, he used to be Henry’s rival in tennis. As for what led to his suicide? Unfortunately, upon him being properly introduced in episode 5, we don’t know.

Harley Graham as Lena

First Noted: Season 1/ Episode 6 “…Troubles as the Tide”

Character Introduction

Lena is the younger sister of Marc and she may not be actively pursuing exposing Violet, she seemingly has been researching her quite a bit. She passes along this research to McKenna to continue where she might have left off.

Timi Prulhiere as Mrs. Regan

Mrs. Regan (Timi Prulhiere) talking to Henry and McKenna.
Mrs. Regan (Timi Prulhiere)

First Noted: Season 1/ Episode 6 “…Troubles as the Tide”

Character Introduction

Marc’s grieving mother is still reeling from the death of her son and to say it is a touchy topic is an understatement. Mentioning her boy, especially a stranger mentioning him, is an easy way to get her upset. Also, the mention of Violet too upsets her in ways that would cause her to act out of character.


John Tague as Ed

Ed (John Tague) talking to McKenna.
Ed (John Tague)

First Noted: Season 1/ Episode 8 “…Cold As Ice”

Character Introduction

Ed is McKenna’s father, and Deb’s ex-husband, who, a year after Jennie’s death, left them both for one of his patients and moved to Florida. He is spoken about in almost a villainous way because he left Deb and perhaps contributed to her alcoholism, but it seems he does care for both still. Also, despite it being pushed he abandoned his family, he has asked McKenna, more than once, to live with him. It’s just she refuses to leave her mother alone.


Nancy Linehan Charles as Judith

Judith (Nancy Linehan Charles) talking to Violet about Candace's death.
Judith (Nancy Linehan Charles)

First Noted: Season 1/ Episode 8 “…Cold As Ice”

Character Introduction

Violet’s grandmother seems to be the only family she has left and is the driving force behind why Violet decides to continue to play Light As A Feather. For if she doesn’t, it could mean her grandmother, who knows nothing about what is going on, dying.


Leah Lewis as Gabby

Gabby (Leah Lewis) trapping Marc and Violet into the game of Light As A Feather.
Gabby (Leah Lewis)

First Noted: Season 1/ Episode 9 “…Innocent as a Lamb”

Character Introduction

Gabby is the reason Violet was cursed with the darkness and knows about the game Light as a Feather. It isn’t clear how Gabby was introduced to it but, likely to save herself, as those before her, she continued the game rather than being a martyr.

About Amari Sali 3332 Articles
New Jersey native Amari Sali takes the approach of more so being a media advisor than a critic to sort of fill in the gap left between casual fans of media and those who review productions for a living. Thus being open about bias while still giving enough insight, often with spoilers, to present whether something is worth seeing, buying, renting, streaming, or checking out at all.
