Heather Chandler, portrayed by Kim Walker, is the first antagonist of the cult classic film Heathers. She is the former leader of the most popular and powerful clique at Westerburg High known as The Heathers. Heather's color is red, to symbolize her overall power.

Early Life[]

Little is known of Heather's early life. She is inferred to be wealthy, and had a comfortable life. Eventually she became the founder and lead member of The Heathers clique.


Heather is an attractive girl with shoulder-length, Strawberry Blonde hair, which she keeps curly. She has fair skin, and pale green eyes. She is 5'4, being the second tallest member of her group. She wears preppy clothes, with colors and pattern to stand out. She uses both masculine and feminine clothing to represent her personality and power.

She wears blacks, whites, and her outfit always consists of her signature red. She wears a red scrunchie, her "crown."


Heather Chandler is aware of the way people view her and takes acceptance in it. She is demanding, bossy, and overall an apex-predator. She is not scared to put people in their places or assert her dominance. The color red symbolizes her, both being powerful and ruling.

She doesn't show much weakness, the only time shown for her to have done so is at the Remington party, when after she is coerced into oral sex by her boyfriend, she rinses her mouth and spits at her reflection angrily. She had some degree of shame only shown when she is alone.


Leading Events[]

Heather and Veronica attend a college party at Remington University. Heather makes Veronica hang out with Brad, Heather's boyfriend David's friend. Heather wants to enjoy the party, but her boyfriend wants to "be with her". He coerces and manipulates her into giving him oral sex. She washes her mouth out, angrily spits at her reflection in the mirror. After Veronica refuses to have sex with Brad, Heather confronts, saying Brad claims she is being a "real cooze". Veronica begs for them to leave because she is sick, Heather then denying angrily. Veronica vomits on the carpet, and Heather.


Veronica and J.D arrive to Heather's home in the morning, in order to get revenge and humiliate Heather for what went down the previous night at the party. Veronica thinks about giving her a mixture of orange juice and milk, asking how ad it'll cause her to vomit, but J.D instead holds up drain-cleaner and suggests giving it to her instead. Veronica disagrees, saying it will kill her. Veronica continues to suggest things, but J.D just says to go with "big blue here.". After Veronica points out she would never drink anything like that, he pours it into a solid cup. Veronica calls him a jerk and pours orange juice and milk into a cup, that looks exactly like the one J.D put the liquid drainer in. She grabs the cup of liquid drainer accidentally, as she kisses J.D. He notices, but just says nevermind after almost telling Veronica.

Heather wakes up, and greets Veronica and J.D in a sarcastic tone. Veronica talks about their argument, then J.D offers her the cup, calling it a hangover cure. Heather refuses but takes the cup after J.D says he knew it would be too intense for her. She drinks it in a singular big sip, beginning to choke and gag, dry-heaving and walking in front of her glass coffee table, exclaiming "Corn nuts." before crashing into the coffee table, dying and shattering it.

Faked Suicide[]

Veronica and J.D panic, not knowing what to do. J.D suggests they forge a suicide note, since Veronica can copy Heather's handwriting. They write a false suicide note, giving Heather a more innocent and lonely narrative.


Heather Chandler is still a prominent and important person in the movie, affecting everyone even after her death.

She is the first of J.D and Veronica's murders, and her absence lets Heather Duke take her place as queen bee, the final push being J.D's manipulation and blackmail.


Veronica Sawyer[]

Of all the members of the Heathers, Veronica Sawyer appears to be Heather Chandler's favorite. She allowed Veronica into the group with the sole intention of using her skills to her advantage, which she does, but seems to enjoy Veronica's company as well. Heather insists that Veronica helps her with the lunchtime polls and even invites her to the Remington University party, excluding both Heather Duke and Heather McNamara. Veronica later plays a role in Heather Chandler's accidental murder.

Heather Duke[]

Heather Chandler does not appear to like Heather Duke at all, constantly bullying her and talks down to her treating her like she's an idiot. She treats Heather Duke's bulimia like a joke and often hits Heather Duke’s ball out during croquet just to spite her. It is suggested that Chandler can see beyond the personality Duke shows at the start of the film, as later in the film Duke copies the ex-queen's personality. As a ghost/dream figure, Heather Chandler talks to Veronica about how she is better than Heather Duke.

Heather McNamara[]

Not much of a relationship is shown between Heather Chandler and Heather McNamara, though Heather Chandler seems to trust her enough to allow her into her clique and does not appear to bully her like she does to Heather Duke. Heather Chandler and Heather McNamara wouldn't be considered as close but they appear to have a stable relationship.

Peter Dawson[]

Heather Chandler and Peter Dawson briefly dated before the movie started. Peter tells the class during Heather's memorial that she broke up with him because he was “too boring.”
