Rose is an orphan raised from childhood by Mrs. Maylie. Bill Sikes and Toby Crackit, two thieves, break into the Maylies' house, accompanied by Oliver. Oliver is shot by the Maylies'. She is also Oliver's long lost aunt.
Rose Maylie is completely omitted from the musical Oliver! and the film thereof. She is also missing from the 1948 and 2005 film versions of the novel. Often Rose's familial relationships differ from those of the original novel,with Mr. Brownlow (with whom she had no connections of before bonding over their acquaintances with Oliver in the novel) occasionally appearing as her uncle or adopted guardian.
In the 1933 film she is played by Barbara Kent.
