LydiaDeetzbio
Appeared in Beetlejuice Film
Played by Winona Ryder

Lydia Deetz, is the daughter of Charles Deetz and the step-daughter of Delia Deetz. She is mostly referred to as a 'goth' girl. Beetlejuice plans on marrying her so he could return to the world of the living.

PersonalityEdit

Lydia is a serious but kind girl who is sensitive beyond her Goth dress and feels isolated in the world. Her father and step-mother do not take anything she says seriously and often ignore her for their own selfish pursuits. Lydia loves writing poetry, taking photographs, and loves anything pertaining to the supernatural and paranormal. Despite her young age, Lydia appears to be the most sensible member of the Deetz household. By the end of the film, she is more happy and well-adjusted because Adam and Barbara Maitland become active parental figures alongside Charles and Lydia Deetz, who take a stronger role in her upbringing after having seen her nearly forced into marriage with Betelgeuse (Beetlejuice).

AppearanceEdit

Lydia is shown with jet black hair which she often wears in a bushy ponytail with long parted bangs. She wears pale face makeup and peach eye shadow around her eyelids, under her eyebrows and above her cheekbones.

HistoryEdit

Lydia Deetz is from New York City.
