Diane looking for Terry

The Shark charges Diane's boat

Brody´s gruesome discovery of Diane's burnt corpse

Diane is a character seen in Jaws 2. She was played by Jean Coulter. She is killed when her boat explodes in an attempt to kill the shark.  

Jaws 2[]

Diane is a water-skiing driver. After her friend Terry is devoured while water-skiing, she attempts to search for her but the shark hits the transom and knocks her to the deck. After screaming and stumbling, Diane attempts to kill the shark by throwing a gas tank at the shark, inadvertently dousing both her and the shark with gas. She then shoots the gas-drenched shark with a flare gun. In the ensuing panic, Diane and the shark are engulfed in flames and the boat explodes. Though the shark manages to escape, it is left severely disfigured by the explosion.

Later, as Chief Martin Brody patrols the beaches, he notices the charred remains of her boat floating near the shore. As he wades into the water to bring it in, he shockingly discovers her burnt corpse.

Trivia[]

  • She is the second character in the franchise to have their corpse used as a jumpscare, the first being Ben Gardner in Jaws, and followed by Shelby Overman in Jaws 3-D.
  • She is by far the only character to have scarred a shark severely.
