I want to run towards something, not away.
~ Beverly in It: Chapter One.
I'm not afraid of you!
~ Beverly to It in the 2017 film.

Beverly "Bev" Marsh is one of the protagonists of Stephen King's horror novel, miniseries and film adaptation IT. She is the only female member of The Losers Club. As a child, she is bullied mercilessly for being a "slut" and is abused by her father.

As an adult, she marries an equally abusive and misogynistic man. She leaves him, though, when he attacks her with particular violence after she tells him she needs to return to Derry, secretly to help finish off It. She is remarkably proficient with a slingshot and gravely wounds IT twice, the second time helping the Losers defeat the creature once and for all. She is the love interest of Bill Denbrough (they remain friends as adults) and of Ben Hanscom, whom she eventually becomes the girlfriend of.

As a kid in the 1990 TV miniseries, Beverly is portrayed by Emily Perkins.

As an adult in the 1990 TV minseries, she is portrayed by Annette O'Toole, who also played Martha Kent.

As a kid in the 2017 theatrical film of 'It,' she is portrayed by Sophia Lillis, who also portrays Nancy Drew in Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase, Gretel in Gretel & Hansel, Sydney Novak in I Am Not Okay with This, and Beth Bledsoe in Uncle Frank.

As an adult in the 2019 sequel, she is portrayed by Jessica Chastain, who also portrays Lady Lucille Sharpe in Crimson Peak, Mary Debenham in Murder on the Orient Express, and Vuk and Margaret Smith in Dark Phoenix, and voices Gia in Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted.

Early life

Beverly Marsh was born in 1946-1947 in the novel 1948-1949 in the miniseries, but was born on February 13, 1976 in the films. She is the daughter of Alvin and Elfrida Marsh, and Beverly was close to her mother until she succumbed to cancer, leaving her alone with her father. Alvin was abusive to Elfrida and Beverly, and in the 2017 film, it's implied that he is sexually attracted to her, and possibly molested her at one point. At school, she was bullied and called a 'slut' by girls, most notably by the Bowers Gang and Greta Keane.
