"Your hair is winter fire

January Ember

My heart burns there too"
-Ben Hanscom's poem dedicated to Beverly Marsh
Beverly Marsh is a local resident of Derry, Maine, the love interest of The Loser’s Club and a major character in Stephen King’s phenomenal novel, IT. She is portrayed by Emily Perkins and Anette O’Toole in the 1990 mini-series, Sophia Lillis in the 2017 film adaptation and Jessica Chastain in it’s 2019 sequel, It: Chapter Two.

Why She Rocks

  1. She is the only female in an all-male group, and is also one of the bravest.
  2. She is strong, independent, kind, bold and never lets her guard down, whether she is being bullied by Greta or Henry, attacked by IT or abused by her husband and/or by her father.
  3. Her beautiful looks and selfless nature makes her the love interest of the boys of The Loser’s Club, mainly Ben Hanscom.
  4. When it comes to conflict (in her own words), she wants to run towards something, not away from it.
  5. She is not hesitant to do what she can to defend herself, like attacking her father after he attempted to rape her.
  6. As shown in the 2017 film adaptation, she was able to see into IT’s dead lights and lived to tell what she saw in it.
  7. One of her most bravest moments is when she stares IT right in the eyes and say’s she‘s not afraid of it.
  8. As shown in the book and minI-series, she has amazing skills at using a slingshot, which The Loser’s Club use against IT.
