I’ve just taken a quick look-see through all the comments that came in whilst I was napping (ah, bliss. Sleep!) and I want to make it clear when I object to Marian, I am not objecting to Lucy G. She, after all, cannot help how her part was written or directed.
We all know that Lucy really enjoyed working with Richard and described him as “the best screen partner.” Her enthusiasm always showed in her interviews. And yes, who can blame her if she developed a little crush on her dreamy co-star? She also seems to be a very bright, bubbly, well-grounded sort of young woman. I really enjoyed her performance in Collision and have looked forward to seeing her in more projects.
I am happy to announce she is getting her first big break here in the US, after several near misses on our shows, including a CW pilot that was not picked up by the network. Lucy will be a regular on the upcoming season of the very popular HBO series True Blood as the English “sister” of gorgeous bad boy vampire Eric Northman (they were both “made” by the same vampire). Poor Lucy, having to play opposite another tall, hunky guy (albeit not a love interest).
Her character Nora is described as intelligent, cool under pressure, a good liar and a little intimidating. She fiercely loves Eric but believes she has a higher calling and works as a double agent with the Vampire Authority. It sounds like a good role for our Lucy and I hope it will bring her bigger and better opportunities. I loved her dark hair as Marian, but she does look quite angelic with the blonde tresses, does she not?
