Character Breakdown “The Haunting of Hill House”

Eleanor Vance          - Late 20’s-30s, a troubled young woman. She hopes her visit to Hill House will help her break away from her controlling sister and enable her to start a new life. Once Eleanor arrives though, the house seems to focus its attentions on her.

 

Mrs. Dudley               - 60 and older, the housekeeper and cook at Hill House. She is not interested in the ongoing investigations at Hill House. Her only concern is sticking to the letter of her agreement as caretaker of Hill House.

 

Theodora                  - Late 20s -30s, young bohemian who comes to Hill House at the invitation of Dr. Montague. Light-hearted and open-minded. She is believed to have a psychic sensitivity which the Dr hopes will deepen his understanding of Hill House.

 

Dr. Montague            - 50s-60s, an anthropologist with a belief in parapsychology. He has rented Hill House for the summer to further his studies away from the judgmental eyes of his colleagues. He is protective of the people he has invited to Hill House but is determined to learn its secrets.

Luke Sanderson        - Late 20s- 30s , a rakish young man who is a member of the family that owns Hill House. He is quick to make a joke and maintains a positive attitude throughout the events he encounters during the investigation.
