Character Bio

Dr. Remy 'Thirteen' Hadley photo
Dr. Remy Beauregard Hadley, better known to her co-workers as "Thirteen" is one of the three doctors that House ultimately hires in the fourth season, replacing his original team. She is a specialist in internal medicine.

Remy Hadley was the child of John Hadley and Anne Hadley and was born in the area of New York City sometime in the early 1980's. While Remy was still quite young, Anne started exhibiting the symptoms of Huntington's Disease, particularly the inability to control her movements or emotional state. As a result, she often lashed out at young Remy and her friends, usually embarassing her and finally resulting in their alienating each other. When Anne was finally institutionalized when Remy was about ten, Remy refused to accompany her on the trip to the care facility despite the urging of her father. Her mother passed away well before Remy started to appear on the series in Season 4.

Remy's age is somewhat of a mystery. In House's Head, when House started talking about the movie Altered States, which was released in 1980, she remarked that she didn't think she had been born by the time that movie came out. When House said that this made her too young to be a doctor, she accused him of forgetting what year it was (2008 at the time). In reality, Olivia Wilde was 24 when she started on the show.

As Remy entered puberty she began to realize she was attracted to both sexes. From her reaction to a patient who also admitted attraction to the same sex in the episode The Softer Side, it appears that she had to handle a great deal of confusion over this during her high school years. However, by adulthood, she was perfectly comfortable with her sexuality, although she preferred to keep her preferences to herself when dealing with colleagues.

Remy obtained admission to Sarah Lawrence College, a small co-educational college in Yonkers, New York, just outside New York City, where she was a student in residence taking a pre-med program. Sarah Lawrence is known to have the most expensive tuition of any university in the United States. This indicates either that Remy's family was well off enough to handle the tuition, or that she was smart enough to earn a partial scholarship. It is likely both elements were true as she was obviously smart and dedicated enough to get into medical school. However, despite her acadmic schedule, she did find the time to explore her sexual desires further, including an interlude with her roommate - a cheerleader from Iowa.

It has not been revealed where Remy went to medical school, or where she did her internship and residency. However, by the time she reaches the application process, she has completed a residency program and has been designated a specialist in internal medicine. However, it must have been clear to Remy from her medical education that she had a 50/50 chance of developing Huntington's disease just as her mother did. Despite the existence of a test for the genetic marker that ensures a patient will develop Huntington's, Remy rationalized that not knowing either way was a better option as it allowed her to plan for the long term by going to medical school and applying for desirable jobs in her field.
