Boarding the TitanicEdit
She first appears in the boarding scene at Southampton carrying Rose's things behind her. She appears again in Rose's cabin taking the drawing out of the packets. Rose looks to a Picasso drawing and Trudy asks what's the artist's name and Rose answers "something Picasso". Some seconds later Rose leaves to her room with Trudy. Trudy there tells to Rose she will be the first to use the sheets of the cabins. Caledon then appears and says when he gets in the sheets later he'll still be the first and Trudy leaves uncomfortably.
When Rose's fiance, Cal Hockley, discovered that Rose went to a third-class party with Jack Dawson, he flipped over the breakfast table that he and Rose were eating at and leaves. Upon entering the room, Trudy helped frantic Rose pick up the remains of the table, assuring her that everything will be alright. In the next scene, Trudy began lacing up Rose's corset, when Rose's mother Ruth asks her for tea and takes over.
Death and sinking of TitanicEdit
When news gets around that the Titanic is sinking, Rose, Ruth, Cal, Trudy and another unnamed maid head for the boat deck through the First-Class staircase. Ruth asks Trudy to turn on the heaters in her stateroom for tea (unaware of the severity of the situation). Trudy complies, and hands Ruth a fur pelt before leaving with another maid. By the time Trudy realized how serious the situation was, all the lifeboats had been launched and she remained trapped onboard the ship.
Trudy died during the Titanic's sinking. Before the ship started to split Trudy is shown holding onto a man's hand, letting go and sliding down with the rest of Titanic's victims. It us unknown if she survived the fall and later died of hypothermia or just simply died from impact.
When Rose died, 84 years later, she passed on in to what was considered Titanic heaven and Trudy was one of the first seen in the Grand Staircase, when Rose joined everyone who had perished. She was also the closest to Rose and Jack and applauded when they kissed for the first time in 84 years.
