"Unless we wake up, and stop acting like this isn't murderville, we're all going to end up like Jake, and we'll deserve it."
—Brooke Maddox to Lakewood citizens[src]

Brooke Maddox is a main character on the original Scream television series.

She is portrayed by Carlson Young.


The gorgeous, sassy and wealthy Queen Bee of George Washington High School, she is one of the best friends of Emma Duval. Initially, she is shown to be slightly snobby and shallow with a carefree attitude and blunt persona. However, as the series progresses, Brooke is revealed to be a troubled, insecure girl with family and daddy issues. Also, she had a complicated and secret sexual relationship with her teacher, Seth Branson. When her friends start to get picked off one by one by the Lakewood slasher, Brooke shows the most grief of her friends' deaths, revealing a more caring and sensitive side. Brooke is attacked on several occasions. In the first season finale, she is attacked while locked inside a freezer, suffering minor stab wounds but managed to survive. She is one of the Six Lakewood teens to survive the first Lakewood bloodbath. In the season 2 premiere, Brooke broke up with Jake Fitzgerald, but was unaware that he was kidnapped and murdered by the new Lakewood Slasher (Piper's accomplice) until much later when his body, blood and gore dropped all over her. She becomes angry and determined to find Jake's killer and avenge him, going as far as to torture Branson for information, with no success. She slowly grows closer to Gustavo, especially when her father, Mayor Quinn Maddox, is murdered by the killer. While assisting Emma and the gang on setting up a trap for the killer, she is ambushed and stabbed by him in the Season 2 finale, but makes a quick recovery.
