Carrie White

Carrie White

Carrietta "Carrie" N. White is a title character and the protagonist of Stephen King's novel Carrie.

In every adaptation and portrayal of Carrie, she is portrayed as an outcast, loathed and taunted by her fellow students and constantly scolded by her mother, Margaret White, an abusive, mentally unstable religious fanatic. At the late age of 16, she has her first menstrual period in the showers at school, and is harassed by the other girls. Carrie triggers her telekinetic powers and ruthlessly kills promgoers, and sets in motion the disaster that takes place at the high school prom. It is interesting that even though Carrie is the protagonist in the both the novel and films, she does kill many people in her fit of telekinetic blind rage, which gives her an antagonistic role, which it would be more likely that she is more of an anti-hero, rather than an antagonist.
