Lacey Kimble is a main character from The Grudge 2, portrayed by Sarah Roemer. Lacey is a resident of the apartment building reached by the curse after Allison returned from Japan and brought it with her.
Lacey lived with her widower father Bill and younger brother Jake. She was a loving and supportive sister to her little brother. Alongside her best friend and neighbor Sally, she soon welcomed Bill's newest wife Trish into their lives, as she moved in. She got along with her new stepmother rather well, in contrast with her younger brother who was still mourning his mother’s death.
One morning, Jake first told Lacey about strange noises that were coming from next door, but she didn’t seem to think much of it. Dressed as a cheerleader, Lacey later visited Sally in her apartment to have an opinion but found her apparently sick. At her door, Lacey tried to get an answer from Sally, but she only stood still, threateningly staring at her. Sally started to mindlessly drink an entire gallon of milk, regurgitate it, then drink it again, in front of a confused and disgusted Lacey. Jake called her and Lacey used this as an excuse to leave, and went to check on him at their house.
Lacey found a scared Jake hidden inside his wardrobe, and was told that Bill and Trish had argued. Jake told her he missed their mother, and Lacey comforted him. Lacey was later awakened by Jake in the middle of the night, after he visited the apartment next door and saw the ghostly eyes staring at him from the window that were actually the ghosts of Vanessa and Miyuki.
Returning from school, Jake warned Lacey about "something bad" coming from the Flemings' apartment, to which she skeptically reacted. Lacey then found their door semi-open and, inside the apartment, separated from Jake. Jake then dicovered his father's dead body, running back to Lacey. Hearing a gagging-like noise, he went to the bathroom and found her dead body lying with her head inside the filled bathtub, having been drowned off-screen.
As suggested by Dr. Sullivan, Trish became the main suspect of the deaths in murder-suicide act.
- It is uncertain if Lacey was killed by a possessed Trish or a manifestation of Toshio or Takeo himself.
- Lacey wears a cheerleader outfit to show to Sally at one point. Ironically, the actress Sarah Roemer would go on to portray a cheerleader in Fired Up! (2009).
- Lacey is the second character to die via drowning in a bathtub, preceded by Detective Nakagawa and followed by Trish Kimble, Brenda and Peter Spencer.
