Cora Cartmell is a little girl who boarded the Titanic in 1912 with her father, Bert Cartmell and her unnamed mother, Mrs. Cartmell. She was a third-class passenger. She was amazed by the incredible size of the Titanic. At Southampton, Cora corrects her father (who called Titanic a boat), saying it was a ship. Cora befriended Jack Dawson while on the ship and later danced with him at a party. When Jack told her he was going to dance with Rose, Cora looked jealous, so Jack told her that she was "still his best girl", and that is what made her smile.
She was portrayed by Alexandrea Owens.
Deleted scenes[edit | edit source]
In a deleted scene, Jack is seen with a picture he drew of Cora and her father. During this scene, Cora called Jack 'Uncle Jack' showing that they had formed a close friendship during their time onboard together.
Ending[edit | edit source]
She is last seen in the epilogue of the movie, in 'Titanic heaven', holding her dad's hand and smiling at Rose, while waving. She has her doll with her.
Last Name[edit | edit source]
It is debatable whether Cora's last name was 'Cartmell' or 'Cartwell'. However, it was never stated because she is of a minor character.
