The internet has been going absolutely wild for Lady Dimitrescu, also known as the tall vampire lady from Capcom’s Resident Evil Village. Here’s what we know about her so far: She’s evil, she runs a coven of her daughters, who are “bewitching, vampiric characters,” and I absolutely need her to step on me.
Tomonori Takano, art director on Resident Evil Village, shared a message with fans in light of Lady Dimitrescu’s internet fame. “I hear her height is something of interest…” he writes, which is certainly true. “If you include her hat and high heels, she’s 2.9m (approximately 9’6”) tall.”
Your love for Lady Dimitrescu is loud and clear.

As soon as Lady Dimitrescu was revealed, fans got hard to work drawing art and cosplaying the character. That enthusiasm seemingly hasn’t slowed, even though we won’t know what she’s up to or why she’s hunting Ethan until Village debuts in May. If you absolutely need to learn more, a free, stand-alone demo is available on PlayStation 5, and it offers a no-combat tour through Castle Dimitrescu for curious players.
Needless to say, players are proud of Lady Dimitrescu and only want the best for her. Personally, I don’t know why Ethan is thwarting her plans. They seem nice, and I think we should support this icon in all her plans.
Now, there’s one injustice here that needs to be corrected. There’s no denying that everyone loves Lady Dimitrescu. However, everyone also loves her witchy daughters. Are they ominously robed and soaked in blood? Yes, but that’s no reason to be rude and “run away” or “cause problems.” Don’t be so judgmental. I’m sure they’re perfectly nice young ladies.
Sadly, Jeanette Maus, the actress who portrayed this character, passed away on Jan. 27. Fans have donated over $60,000 to a GoFundMe that benefits Maus’ husband and family.
Resident Evil Village will be released worldwide on May 7, 2021, for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
