- This article is about the Forks High School receptionist. For the newborn vampire, see Shelly.
Shelly Cope is the receptionist in the Forks High School front office.
She is portrayed by Trish Egan in the movie adaptation.
In Midnight Sun, Edward observes her thoughts and notices that she is easily dazzled by him and often thinks about him in a romantic way. He considers murdering her so to be able to drink Bella's blood, when she walked into the small, warm school office. Later on, when trying to dazzle her, Edward wonders why Bella's reactions could not be more like Ms. Cope's.
She is described as large, red-haired and wearing glasses. She is said to have small brown eyes in Midnight Sun. In the movie, however, she does not wear glasses and her hair is gray.
