Tiffany (also known as "The Bride of Chucky") is a murderous doll and an antagonist featured in the fourth, fifth, and sixth installments of the Child's Play franchise of horror films. She is portrayed by Jennifer Tilly in both live-action and voiceover in Bride of Chucky, Seed of Chucky and Curse of Chucky. On January 5, 2017, it was announced that Tilly had signed for the upcoming Cult of Chucky.[1]

As a human, Tiffany has bleached blonde hair and brown eyes, a gothic fashion style, and has a chest tattoo of a broken heart with Chucky written above it. After becoming a doll, Tiffany redoes her hair and makeup to resemble her human self, and wears a golden necklace that says "Tiff". Her appearance changes throughout the series: her lips become smaller, her hair becomes straighter, she no longer wears a leather jacket, and she wears a different dress and new boots. Tiffany, like her love interest, Chucky, wants to transfer her soul to the human protagonist. Both she and Chucky kill people; however, only Tiffany shows remorse afterwards.

Personality[edit]

Tiffany has many different personalities which can be a little skeptical. She dresses in a gothic fashion and can be described as a hopeless romantic. She has a "bimbo" air, but is sweet, creative, inventive, and somewhat feminist. Unlike Chucky, she possesses a genuinely kind and compassionate side, although she can be quite short-tempered, and is struck sometimes by remorse which is out-of-sync with her love of killing. Not much is known about Tiffany before Bride of Chucky. However, shortly into the movie it is shown that she loves deeply, believing "love would set her free". She is easily disappointed, terribly violent, and unforgiving when angered. She attempts to reform in her second appearance, in Seed of Chucky, to "break her addiction" to killing. However, Tiffany's urge to maim is strong, and she continues to use creative means to murder. She is demure in a way that gives her more humanity than Chucky, making them an unusual pair. Tiffany's 'ordinariness' is highlighted in several ways through the two movies—making her all the more compelling and dangerous.

Appearances[edit]

Bride of Chucky (1998)[edit]

Main article: Bride of Chucky

Tiffany seduces and murders a police officer in order to steal Chucky's remains from an evidence vault. Patching them together with new doll parts, she re-enacts the voodoo ritual which put his soul inside the doll. When an argument reveals that Chucky has no intention of marrying her, an outraged Tiffany confines him in a playpen and taunts him with a bridal doll; Chucky soon breaks out and electrocutes Tiffany, transferring her soul into the doll. Stuck in the same circumstances, they need the Heart of Damballa (a magic amulet) buried with Chucky's human remains to escape their doll bodies, and trick Tiffany's neighbors, Jesse and Jade, into transporting them.

Several people are gruesomely killed during the road trip; Tiffany's particularly creative murder of a con-artist couple in a bridal suite moves Chucky to proclaim his love and propose to Tiffany; she accepts and they have sex. Jesse and Jade become wanted for the murders, and Chucky and Tiffany reveal they are alive and take the couple hostage. The hostages instigate a fight between Chucky and Tiffany which ends with their stolen recreational vehicle crashing. Chucky forces Jade to his grave site to retrieve the amulet, when Jesse arrives to trade Tiffany for Jade. Chucky does so but quickly recaptures the couple and prepares to transfer Tiffany's soul into Jade. However, touched by Jade and Jesse's love, Tiffany stabs Chucky and they fight. Tiffany is stabbed in the heart by Chucky, and avenged by Jade who shoots Chucky to death. As she lies dying, Tiffany gives birth to a bloody baby doll which attacks the sole witness.

Seed of Chucky (2004)[edit]

Main article: Seed of Chucky

Chucky and Tiffany are brought back by their child when he reads the inscription on the Heart of Damballa. When they see he has no genitals (though he generally appears and sounds like a boy) Tiffany sees it as proof the child is a girl and names it Glenda (feminizing the name, Glen, which Chucky had given to him previously). Seed of Chucky focuses on their capers in Hollywood, where a movie is being made about their urban legend. Now going by "Tiffany Ray", Tiffany plans to transport her soul into the body of Jennifer Tilly (who happens to be playing her in the film). They also plan to impregnate her and put Glen/Glenda's soul in the baby's body. Their plan is successful, as Tilly swiftly gives birth to two babies, a boy and a girl. This works out perfectly as Glen/Glenda has a split personality: a sweet and caring boy, and a homicidal girl. However, Chucky decides to remain a doll, seeing that being human isn't so great. Disturbed by this, Tiffany leaves Chucky, taking Glen/Glenda with her, causing Chucky to get angry.

Tiffany and Glen/Glenda go to Tilly's hospital. Chucky follows them and hits her in the head with an axe for leaving him, thus killing her. However, at the very last minute, she successfully passes her soul into Jennifer before dying. Five years later, she is happily living in Hollywood while posing as Jennifer's split personality, and is raising Glen and Glenda on her own. On the twins' birthday, one of the maids tries to quit her job because she is afraid of "troubled child" Glenda. Jennifer/Tiffany tells her she can go, but then beats her to death with her doll body (which has a mark from the axe injury on it). Her eyes then turn green while she evilly laughs. In the extended version, she then hides the body and tells Glenda to keep a secret.

Curse of Chucky (2013)[edit]

Main article: Curse of Chucky

Nine years after the events of Seed of Chucky, Tiffany's soul still possesses actress Jennifer Tilly's body. She does not appear onscreen until the ending moments of the film where it is revealed that she was the one responsible for mailing Chucky out to Nica's home, facilitating his murder spree on the enemies he never got to kill. Given the past events, it appears Tiffany has forgiven Chucky and still enjoys killing. The status of their twins is never stated; it is most likely they are still alive. Six months later, Tiffany mails Chucky to the home of Nica's niece, Alice, and he kills her paternal grandmother. Chucky attempts to transfer his soul into Alice, but fails. At the end of the movie, he again meets one of his old enemies, Andy.

Other appearances[edit]

There have been a number of comics based on the characters from the films. Most recently, Devil's Due Publishing have started an eponymous series which will include a crossover with HACK/Slash.[2] Tiffany has not appeared in it so far.[when?]

On the special features of Seed of Chucky DVD, Tiffany sits alongside Chucky and Glen on a sofa in their family home, where they watch a slideshow of their holiday to various places. Nearly all of these places have evidence of Chucky having killed someone; this annoys Tiffany and makes Glen feel ill.

Also on the special features of Seed of Chucky DVD, Chucky and Tiffany are having interviews by the Fuzion interviewer to promote the movie, and on the section called Conceiving the Seed of Chucky, Chucky, Tiffany, Glen, the cast and makers of the film are also interviewed.
