Waiting Sucks: Clearing the Air

By Gianna Sobol

Marnie, one of our new characters this season, is played by the incomparable Fiona Shaw. According to Lauren Bowles, who plays Merlotte's waitress Holly, "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."
