Retro SVHigh

Meet the Characters:

On the outside, Elizabeth Wakefield was exactly like her twin. She had the same blond hair, the same slim figure, and the same ocean-blue eyes. But on the inside, she and Jessica couldn’t be more different. Elizabeth was sensitive and thoughtful, and was always there to help a friend in need or to provide a listening ear. She was also a talented writer who was highly committed to honing her literary skills. And 10 years later?
Jessica Wakefield was the most popular girl at Sweet Valley High. Head cheerleader and president of exclusive sorority Pi Beta Alpha, Jess stopped at nothing to get what she wanted, no matter who was hurt along the way. She’s suffered many tragedies, including losing her boyfriend Sam in a drunk driving accident, but always managed to bounce back. Lila Fowler was her best friend and biggest rival. Is she still causing trouble, 10 yrs later?
Todd Wilkins was the star of the Sweet Valley High basketball team and Elizabeth Wakefield’s trusty boyfriend. Faithful and genuine, Todd was never too far from Liz’s side when she needed him most. Although he was a popular athlete at SVH, Todd was also humble and down-to-earth. Despite originally being pursued by Jessica, Todd enjoyed a long and loving relationship with Liz for much of the series’ run, even after moving to Vermont in the middle of the school year. Ten years later – did Todd trade twins again?
Bruce Patman was the richest boy in Sweet Valley and with his ice-blue eyes, dark hair, and killer smile, he was also one of the best looking. That sexy black Porsche he drove didn’t hurt, either! His constant parade of beautiful, popular (and sometimes older) GFs solidified his reputation as SVH’s resident heartbreaker. Remember those rumors about him and Jess? Did he really date Regina Morrow just to improve his image and win an election? What’s with him and Lila Fowler? 10 years later, what’s with him and LIZ??
Winston Egbert was Sweet Valley High’s resident class clown. Never one to shy away from pulling a prank or cracking a joke, Winston gained the respect of his peers with his sunny disposition and ability to laugh at himself. Winston’s warmth and humor earned him friends wherever he went. Despite his unrequited and unreturned love for Jessica, Winston was sure that he could always count on the support of Elizabeth and the rest of his loyal friends, just as they counted on him. Is Winston still pining over Jessica – 10 years later?
Lila Fowler was Jessica Wakefield’s rival and best friend and, like Jessica, she was strong-minded and competitive. Lila was extremely wealthy and would only settle for the very best of anything the world had to offer. She wasn’t afraid to use her wealth to get exactly what she wanted, or to out-do Jessica. But underneath her hard exterior, Lila was a loyal friend who would do anything for those who she cared about. Will Lila be a main character in Sweet Valley Confidential?
Quiet and smart, Enid Rollins wasn’t the flashiest student at Sweet Valley High, but she was certainly the nicest. However, behind those lovely green eyes lurked a secret shame: she used to be a hard-partying druggie with a taste for too much booze and a reckless, older boyfriend. Despite personal challenges and family troubles, Enid navigated the halls of SVH with aplomb. UNTIL she tired of being known as Elizabeth Wakefield’s best friend and decided to forge an identity of her own. Are Enid and Liz still best friends?
