Mary: (about favorite characters she's portrayed) I was madly in love with Spike so I lobbied hard to play Julia in Bebop. I think Jaguara in Wolf's Rain was my favorite villain. That woman was pure evil. There's something about playing a "smiling villain" that appeals to me. They show no remorse and they love what they do. Clear thinking, ala Hannibal Lecter, is a thing of beauty. Not that I recommend that as a character trait, but it's sure is fun to play!
