Characters / Edward Scissorhands

Edward Scissorhands

Played by: Johnny Depp

Kim Boggs

Played by: Winona Ryder


Played by: Anthony Michael Hall

  • Big Bad: While not at first, as the story progresses, it becomes clearer that Jim is the main antagonist of the film, actively attempting to keep Kim and Edward apart from each other.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: He's so possessive over Kim he's willing to get into a fight with a guy with scissors for hands over her.
  • Disney Villain Death: He is pushed out of the window at the top of the castle by Edward.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: Kim eventually turns on him too, threatening him while he gives Edward a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown.
  • Famous Last Words: "Hey! I said, stay away from her!"
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: He is stabbed with Edward's scissors before being pushed out of the window in the climax.

Pegg Boggs

Played by: Dianne Wiest

  • Parental Substitute: She's basically a mother to Edward for most of the story and she never once doubts his innocence, though she eventually concedes that bringing him to her home was a mistake, even if she had the best of intentions.
  • Shrinking Violet: She tends to get steamrolled by her noisier, pushier neighbours.
  • Women Are Wiser: Compared to her absurdly oblivious husband, Pegg is far more aware of the situation when things go sour for Edward.
