8 roles

CadyBoth genders8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Cady is the film's protagonist, a naive teen girl who has been homeschooled for 12 years while living in Africa with her research zoologist parents. Her first day in an American public high school is a "trial by fire" introduction to the treacherous world of cliques and hierarchies that have already been formed before her arrival. Cady is intelligent, especially in math, and eager to be liked.

Regina GeorgeMale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Cady describes Regina George as a living Barbie doll: blonde, beautiful, glamorous, wealthy, capable, and seemingly carefree. She is the leader of "The Plastics"—an exclusive clique consisting of only her, Gretchen Wieners, and Karen Smith. We see Regina's impressive savagery early on in the film, like when she dispatches Jason for Cady in the cafeteria, or prank-calls his girlfriend's mom in the mall.

Gretchen WienersMale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Gretchen Wieners has two defining qualities: being the heiress to a dubious "Toaster Strudel" fortune, and having many "secrets." She often seems like Regina's second-in-command, occasionally acting as Regina's representative, and stringently enforcing the bylaws of The Plastics. Early on, she seems delighted and empowered knowing Cady's "secret" (liking Aaron Samuels).

Karen SmithFemale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Karen is the third member of The Plastics, notable mainly for her sheer stupidity. Karen's dim wit makes her an easy member of the group to target and manipulate, like Cady does toward the end of the film with a "three-way calling attack." Karen fails to understand basic matters in the film, like why Cady is white, or what "first cousin" means. She often uses malapropisms, like referring to ESP as "ESPN." At the end of the film, Karen fulfills her dream of being a weather girl.

Janis IanMale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Janis is the first person Cady meets at school, along with Damian. In addition to providing Cady with background information on the school's notable personalities, along with Damian, Janis gives Cady a literal map of the school cafeteria and its various territorial boundaries. Janis hates Regina because they used to be friends until Regina began spreading rumors about Janis being a lesbian, leading her to drop out of school and become a Goth.

Aaron SamuelsFemale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Aaron Samuels is a high school senior and Cady's classmate in calculus class. Aaron's "boy-next-door" good looks cause Cady to like him, although Gretchen forbids her from acting on the crush because Aaron is Regina's ex. After a jealous Regina seduces Aaron in front of Cady, Cady successfully schemes to break up their relationship. Aaron hesitates to date Cady after she starts styling herself after Regina, and only reunites with her at the film's end during the Spring Fling concert.

Ms. NorburyMale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Ms. Norbury is a divorced math teacher who encourages Cady to join the Mathletes. Ms. Norbury on occasion acts as Cady's conscience, not only encouraging her to pursue math, something Cady resists so she can endear herself to Aaron, but encouraging her to come clean and accept blame for her involvement in the Burn Book. Cady's most hurtful comments in the Burn Book are directed toward Ms. Norbury, and lead to her office being searched by police.

DamianMale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Damian is best friends with Janis, and the first classmate at school to talk to Cady. Janis describes him early on as being almost "too gay to function," and Damian certainly has an eye for glitz and glamour, as evidenced by the Mariah Carey posters on his bedroom wall, and his performance of "Beautiful" by Christina Aguilera at the Winter Talent Show. Like Janis, Damian hates Regina, but on a certain level still admires the "fabulous" aura she is able to project.
