Skyrim Grandma is the nickname given to YouTuber Shirley Curry, who is known for her The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Let's Play videos. In 2019, Skyrim developer Bethesda announced that they would be including a character based on Curry in Elder Scrolls VI.


On October 18th, 2011, Curry joined YouTube to follow YouTubers like Vsauce and Jacksepticeye. [1][2]

Four years later, on October 18th, 2015, Curry posted her first Let's Play video, "SKYRIM eps 1." Within four years, the post received more than 1.8 million views (shown below).

Over the next three years, Curry's videos continued to receive hundreds of thousands of views. "Skyrim eps 2" received more than 375,000 views and the video "SkyrimSE #1 Ganci The Redguard Warrior" received more than 200,000 views (shown below, left and right).

Elder Scrolls Character

On November 23rd, 2017, [3] user Nick Popp launched the petition "Immortalize Shirley Curry as an NPC, unique weapon, or location in The Elder Scrolls VI." They wrote in the post:

Shirley Curry is an 82 year old grandmother who runs her own channel on YouTube (with the help of her grandson). Shirley plays The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim as well as other first person RPG’s in away that is often received as fresh and gentle as well as entertaining and thoughtful. Sadly, the next Elder Scrolls game won’t be released until Shirley is 88 years old, which means that unfortunately, she may not get to play it. As Bethesda has demonstrated with another fan named Erik West, they are willing to include dedicated fans of their series into their games.

On March 29th, 2019, Bethesda published a video entitled "Celebrate 25 Years of The Elder Scrolls." In the video, they mention the campaign and announced that they would be including Shirley Curry in the game.[4]

On March 29th, 2019, Curry posted a video on Twitter of herself with Bethesda-owner Todd Howard. She wrote in the post, "Well, since they made the announcement today about me, as a character in the next TES game …I can show my favorite thing I brought away with me!!!" The post received 11,000 retweets and 47,000 views in less than one week (shown below).
