    The Internet Is In Love With Kate From "Fear Street" And These Reactions Prove It

    Kate lives on in our hearts.

    The Fear Street trilogy is still making waves on the internet, but one character in particular has had our tear ducts in overdrive: that, of course, would be Kate from Fear Street: 1994, brilliantly played by Julia Rehwald.

    This high school cheerleader and valedictorian is sassy, spunky, and street-smart — a fighter who is trying her best to move ahead in life toward a better future. She never lets down her friends and doesn't turn her back on anyone, even when she knows it might literally be the end of her.

    Although not a main character in any of the Fear Street movies, Kate provoked admiration, attachment, and empathy from many a viewer.

    Kate was the underdog we all were hoping would win. That's why we've collected some of the best tweets about her from fans who just can't help their obsession.

    one of the most heartbreaking moments in #FearStreet1994 is when kate is fighting for her life, and the scene cuts away to deena, sam and then simon doing their own thing, but you can still hear kate’s screams in the background. it gets to me every time. #FearStreet
