Ken Smith is a high school student and a protagonist of Unfriended. He was one of the invites of the Skype chat that Laura Barns entered to get revenge. He is portrayed by Jacob Wysocki.


Ken was one of the more relaxed and laid back characters, often making jokes when the situation was tense. He is also very proud of his blender, frequently bragging about it to others. Ken was not afraid to tell others how he feels about other people, as he told them how he felt about both Val and Laura no matter how mean it was and even laughed about it later.

Ken was also the most knowledgeable of technology the six friends, as he had great skills in computer work and was able to get rid of Laura for a brief time. Its possible that he was killed by Laura quickly due to his skills in computer work as he could have potentially gotten rid of her compared to others.

Ken's death

In the film, Ken is one of the participants in an online skype call along with Blaire, Mitch, Adam, Jess, Val and an unknown skype user named billie227. After Val dies, Ken uses an anti virus software to rid the call of billie227. When Adam calls the police, the person on the other end asks if he and the others are safe, to which he confirms, then it asks about Ken in general before warning them not to hang up. Billie227 then returns to the chat as a camera view inside what seems to be a crate, when Ken stands up, he is seen on billie's camera, this made the him and the others realize that billie's camera is inside Ken's room. When Ken finds the source of the camera, he looks at it in horror and then his feed shuts off and when it comes back on, it shows him getting into a rage and banging himself on the table as the others watch in horror as he sticks his arm inside a blender, and then he shattered the entire glass surface of the blender and deeply embedded glass into his arm. He then proceeded to slit his own throat with the blender killing him.


  • Ken's death was changed before the film was released. His original death involved him finding the mysterious camcorder, and then running to the roof of his house in order to escape from Laura's demonic form (which was staring at him), only to be pushed off the roof by Laura and landing head first on the ground.
  • It is unknown why Ken killed himself, as Ken had little to nothing to do with the events that happened, other than being friends with the perpetrators, the only thing he did was state that he believed Laura had deserved everything that happened to her for her also being a bully. However, it's possible Laura put the camera in Ken's crate as Ken was the only one capable of removing her permanently.
  • His death is the golden chainsaw in Dead Meat's kill count.
