Megan Stambler is a character in 10 Cloverfield Lane. While she doesn't appears on the movie nor the ARG, she is mentioned several times.


Early life[]

"We used to have this little joke, every once in a while, I'd ask her, what do you want to be when you grow up? And you know what she'd say? French."
—Howard to Michelle

Megan is the daughter of Howard and Denise Stambler. She was born at some point before 2000.[1] Megan loved french culture and wanted to be an artist. Whenever Howard asked her what she wanted to be when she grew up, she answer that she wanted to be french.[2]

Her father used to be overprotective with her, due the things he saw during his time on the navy, even taking at extreme measures so she could be safe. However, due his insanity he sometimes used to get mad at her without a good reason, as, on a specific occasion, after Howard gave her his father medal, she accidentally misplaced it. According to Denise, it took Megan months to tell her mother what had happened. Fed-up with her husband, Denise moved to Chicago and took Megan with her.[1][2]

Fun and Pretty Things[]

"Deep down you have to know you’ll never see Megan again. So I’m begging you, for the last time, forget about us. I’m so tired of being afraid of you. Nothing for years, and then you pop up like this, and it’s like you’re taking away everything that I’ve worked so hard to rebuild. "
—Denise to Howard

Some time after moving to Chicago Howard, in an effort to contact her daughter tried to deceive her with a website he made called, so he and Megan could talk in private, and discuss about the imminent attack and how could she be prepared for it. However Megan never answered, but Howard's ex-wife Denise, with the help from an unknown source, found out about the site and confronted Howard, telling him to leave her alone and to get professional help.[1]


  • Megan's current status is unclear, as Howard tells Michelle that "Megan's not with us anymore," but is unknown if this is a fact, or an assumption by him due to the recent attack. Since Howard tried to communicate with her on February it must mean that by that time she was alive. However, due Howard's mental state, this can't be confirmed. It should be noted that on Denise message, she says "Just leave me alone" instead of "us" and said to Howard, "You have to know [he]’ll never see Megan again," though this could just be due his restraining order.
