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.
