Fiona Shaw, Resident Witch

Marnie is the New Bad Girl:

Fiona Shaw, who plays Marnie the witchFiona Shaw is set to be the newest bad girl on the True Blood block. For those of you who are anti-vampire, Marnie the witch will be your new favorite character.

Marnie is the leader of a coven that is determined to re-animate the dead. This is not great news as far as the vampires are concerned, since it will give the witches cause to control them. Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) is sent in to threaten the coven, and at the end of episode 2, we find that this may have dire consequences for him.

Fiona is very quick to add that while her character may turn out to be arch enemies with Eric, she has her eye firmly placed on Lafayette, played by Nelsan Ellis:

“My character is certainly very pleased to meet Lafayette, who I realize has more powers than he knows.”

It will be interesting to see where this storyline will go, and how much of an influence Lafayette will actually have in defeating Marnie. Or will he choose to overturn the vampires?

Only time will tell.
