Marianne was a maenad on the show as well, they just expanded her part. As a follower of Dionysus, she's attracted to chaos and situations where people lower their inhibitions.Originally Posted by raisinthesun;3966659;
I don't know, I think it's scarier to have someone who is incredibly evil, but is physically beautiful. Marianne was able to draw so many people in with her charm and beauty. If she'd looked like an ogre, everyone would have seen her coming!I didnt watch season 2 of True Blood all the way thru so i dont know how her character turned out on the show but i do seem to remember that the show portrayed her as a rather attractive female and the book describes her as hideous--i kinda wish the tv show had shown her as an ugly character, it would have made her much more scary.
