Cole Sear is a main character in The Sixth Sense.
The Sixth Sense Edit
Cole is a 9-year-old who has a sixth sense, a sense in which he actually can see the ghosts of the undead, who always coming to him, but is too afraid to approach them. Dr. Malcolm Crowe (Bruce Willis), a child psychologist in Philadelphia, who comes across his case, decides to help him, due to the fact Cole is going through a similar situation as a previous patient of his, named Vincent. At first, Malcolm thinks Cole is delusional and plans to drop him. Remembering Vincent, Malcolm listens to an audiotape from a session with Vincent, then a child. On the tape, Malcolm is heard leaving the room, and when he returned, Vincent was crying. Turning up the volume, Malcolm hears a weeping man instead of a child, and now believes that Cole is telling the truth and that Vincent may have had the same ability. He suggests to Cole that he should try to find a purpose for his gift by communicating with the ghosts and perhaps aid them with their unfinished business. At first, Cole is unwilling since the ghosts terrify him, but he finally decides to do it.
Cole talks to one of the ghosts, a young ill girl who recently died, Kyra Collins (Mischa Barton). He goes to her funeral reception with Malcolm upon her request. Kyra's ghost gives Cole a box holding a videotape, which Cole then passes on to her father. The video shows Kyra's stepmother intentionally making her sick, revealing the true reason she died.
Learning to live with the ghosts he sees, Cole starts to fit in at school and gets the lead in the school play, which Malcolm attends. The doctor and patient depart on positive terms and Cole suggests to Malcolm that he should try speaking to Anna while she is asleep (who then realizes he was a ghost the entire time). Cole confesses his secret to his mother, Lynn (Toni Collette). Although his mother at first does not believe him, Cole proves his ability to her, and Lynn tearfully accepts the truth.
