In honor of our Halloween week, we look back on one of the scariest people ever to live in Springfield, Brent Lawrence aka Marian Cramer. If you haven’t heard the story, after Alan-Michael Spaulding shot Lawrence as he attacked A-M and his love Lucy Cooper everyone in town thought Lawrence was dead, despite the fact his body had disappeared. Actually his sister had discovered him and took him away, nursing him back to health. When he returned to town he knew he needed a disguise to get close to his targets for revenge, A-M and Lucy. His disguise was incredible. He turned himself into the female Marian Cramer. Frank Beaty did an amazing job portraying this complicated role.
Watch a summary of his storyline through the Character Profile in this post:
The mainstream press was also taken with the storyline which brought in lots of press for the show. Besides the interview above, which shows what Beaty went through to transform into Marian he was interviewed by multiple sources.
