Appearance and Personality

Billie Dean Howard is a middle aged woman who dresses "business casual." She often wears suit coats with jewelry or floral shirts. Her character was called a “Lee Press-On Nails Psychic” to explain her sometimes "cheap" look. Her hair is medium blonde, parted toward the right side and curled at the ends. Her complexion is pale and she wears makeup, light lipstick, mascara and eyeliner. She has a furrowed brow and a serious expression to her face. Her character as the psychic medium is self-involved and brash. She takes herself very serious. In this, we can find a bit of humor in her personality. She is very involved in her work and gets the job done to the best of her ability. She works with Constance trying to communicate with her son, Tate. She is afraid of Tate, because his presence is too strong for her to handle. While working with Constance, Billie Dean is able to explore the other spirits living in the Murder House.
