Role In The Film
Stacey is the archival and former best friend of Anna. She always likes to torture her and tries to get her into trouble. One day in P.E., she hits her on the head with a volleyball, Anna throws it back at her, and ends up in detention for doing so. The next morning, when Anna tries to say hi to Stacey, she and the girls pretend to hug Anna but fold up her shirt causing her to fall backwards over a bike rack and Stacey tells the girls to run away. She also pretends to make up with Anna and asks her to sit with her during a test. When Anna (with Tess in her body) is taking the test and Stacey writes a note to Tess that she's glad to be friends again, it turns out that it was a trick since the note was on Stacey's test and she tells the teacher that Anna's copying her test so it would look like Tess is cheating and gets Tess into detention and then Tess sees the kind of person that Stacey has become. Later, Tess gets revenge on her by gaining access to the staff lounge by a young staff member, who Anna has a crush on, to finish her test. Then Tess erases all of Stacey's answers and writes "I'm stupid" on there. It's unknown what actually happens with Stacey later on. However, in a deleted scene, she confronts Tess (while still in Anna's body) and Tess punches her in the nose for payback, and she reacts to her nose getting messed up. She isn't seen anymore later in the film.
