Joanne Mildred Simpson is a caring, but internally insecure and uptight foster mother.

BiographyEdit

Like her husband, her external foster family background made her an embodiment of the stereotypical ideal model family. They spend their days taking care of foster children, after the harrowing truth that Joanne is unable to give birth. 

Child's Play 2 (1990)Edit

Joanne instantly felt compassion for Andy Barclay, unlike her husband Phil, who is wary of his distant and strange behavior. Regardless of Phil's worries, they decide to take him in. As Andy gets settled in, he sees a Good Guy doll named Tommy, which had been previously owned by another foster child.

When Andy reacts with momentary horror, Phil wonders what is going on, but Joanne has some understanding of Andy's past fears and offers to get rid of the toy so as not to cause trouble. At one point, she discovers that her family's priceless ornament, passed down for generations, had been broken by Chucky, who used it to destroy Tommy so he could assume the identity to remain in the Simpson residence and close to Andy.

Joanne's death.

Joanne fights with Phil's constantly about Andy's past, and alleged criminal insanity. However, when Phil is murdered, it leaves her grief-stricken and disillusioned about Andy. She angrily holds him accountable, and instead of having him charged with murder, she packs his things and sends him back to the orphanage. Kyle, knowing that Andy likely did not kill Phil, tries to reason with her, but Joanne vindictively ignores her.

DeathEdit

Joanne heads upstairs to her bedroom. The paramedics just left the premises with Phil's body, and Kyle, having been spurned by her earlier, went outside to smoke on the swing set. Having been left behind, Chucky follows her upstairs, gags her and slits her throat (off-camera). Her corpse is later found by Kyle.

TriviaEdit

  • Joanne is Chucky's 9th victim since Child's Play. She is also the first of Chucky's victims to be killed off-screen, not counting the murders he committed before becoming a doll.
  • Before Agutter was cast, Veronica Cartwright of Alien was considered to play Joanne Simpson.
