Novel

Helen first appears in the novel throwing tampons at Carrie when she received her period causing her to receive a detention. She helped Sue with the decorations and she had no objection to Tommy taking Carrie to the Prom. She attended the prom in which the incident occurred. When Carrie is drenched in blood, Helen is in a corner giggling in fear. She presumably was electrocuted or burned at the prom. Her mother Georgette Shyres died when Chamberlain was getting destroyed by Carrie

In this remake, like Norma Watson she is friendlier and sympathize with Carrie, same if she had bullied her at first, she voted for Carrie to be the prom queen, the night of the prom she and Norma complimented Carrie about her dress, she also slapped Kenny when him and Tina laugh at Carrie cover in pig blood after noticing the bucket that Chris took for the prank, but when she tried to get Carrie out of her trance only to be pushed by Miss Desjardins, who also tried to help Carrie, but like some of the students she is electrocuted while trying to escape.
