Early role for Marcia before she became a household name on Melrose Place and Desperate Housewives.
13 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

Just finished watching this TFTD episode and was much impressed with it's cunning and charm, and most of all I was glad to see the attractive and elegant Marcia Cross in one of her earliest roles. This was well before Marcia reached stardom with Melrose and Housewives, but hey everyone has to build their way up in Hollywood and entertainment, and doing it in a horror series is just fine. Cross is just as bright with her fine red hair and she plays a lovely vamp in this episode called "Strange Love". "Strange Love" is an episode that focuses on a vampire couple set in 1935 who are entertaining and Marcia plays the wife and she breaks her leg while dancing, then her husband must call in the doctor. As with vampire rules no hospitals, so in home or should I say coffin treatment, anyway the doctor is held captive by the male vampire, only while he goes off one night Marcia becomes attached to the doctor while he's held captive, by charming him she seeks new blood and transforms the doctor by seducing him! A good episode well written, and acted nice to see the elegant Marcia in a charming role before she gained fame. Try to catch this episode sometimes it's worth it.
