Gia Goodman is a fictional character on The CW television series, "Veronica Mars", which debuted during the fall 2004 season. She is portrayed by Krysten Ritter.

Background

Gia Goodman is the daughter of the influential Neptune citizen and professional baseball team owner Woody Goodman. Gia has a somewhat ditzy and quirky personality. She tends to tell people exactly what is on her mind, even when they are sick of listening to her.

Gia started attending Neptune High in Season 2 after transferring there from a private boarding school. Shortly after her transfer she attended the class field trip to Shark Field and met Dick Casablancas, his brother Cassidy, Duncan Kane and Veronica for the first time. She rode the bus on the way to the stadium, but was offered a ride in Dick Casablancas' limo on the way back when he saw an opportunity to make a new "friend." Whatever Dick's intentions, this probably saved her life as the bus crashed off a cliff just a few minutes later.

Later in the year, Gia saw a chance to become better friends with Veronica when she invited Veronica to her slumber party. Veronica had an ulterior motive during the slumber party though as she was investigating families that Meg Manning had babysat for and Meg had babysat Rodney while Gia was away at school.

Gia turns to Veronica for help when she receives a mysterious DVD in the mail containing camcorder footage of Gia at her brother's soccer game. Gia hires Veronica to find out who sent her the creepy footage. Gia and Veronica's friendship turns heated when a feud erupts between Woody Goodman and Keith Mars. Gia kicks Veronica off the case, but Veronica still rushes to Gia's aid when she realizes that Gia's stalker was Neptune High janitor Tommy "Lucky" Dohanic and that he was still inside the school with Gia. Lucky is arrested, but he is let go when the Mannings pay for his bail. He then comes to school the next day with a gun looking for Gia. Lucky is shot and killed by school security and no harm comes to Gia.
