Waiting Sucks: Pam
Earlier this week HBO released the next clip in its Waiting Sucks campaign and this particular scene takes place after Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) falls victim to “amnesia” and Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) is on a mission (in a super sassy outfit!) to get her maker back to normal. However, it’s immediately obvious that no matter how threatening Pam is to Marnie (Fiona Shaw), the witch isn’t planning to reverse the spell she’s put on the vampire Sherriff. Watch the clip below.
From the sounds of that laugh at the end of the clip, Marnie is going to be quite a handful this season. And it sounds like Shaw is just the person to play her. According to Lauren Bowles, who plays Merlotte‘s waitress Holly, Shaw is a very focused actor:
“If there’s one thing Fiona Shaw could never be accused of as an actor, that would be phoning it in. I have seen the woman (on two hours sleep) learn an entire monologue in Latin and perform it with faultless elocution that would have made the Pope proud. She’s what you would call a master craftsman. I’m not sure if I want her to be my mother or my mentor or maybe my lover.”
What do you think Truebies? Does Marnie look like a believable witch? And how about that face-off?! Pam against Marnie, Lafayette, Jesus, and Tara? Guns and candles and a salt circle? Sounds like a perfect combination for some craziness.
