40 TV and Movie Characters Who Were The Quintessential IT Girls
Torrance Shipman (Bring It On)
Bring It On proved that movies about cheerleading could be interesting and compelling. A big reason for the film’s success is Kirsten Dunsts‘s performance as Torrance Shipman. Torrance is a traditional IT girl, but she’s not simple by any means. She’s the captain of the cheerleading squad and she has a long-term boyfriend. Of course, she’s also very popular.
Part of what makes Bring It On so interesting is its willingness to touch on issues of race and class. Torrance is an IT girl, but she discovers that she might have earned that status by stepping on the backs of other people.
