Actress Mena Suvari is best known for her roles in the films American Pie (Heather) and American Beauty (Angela) and for her appearances on Six Feet Under (Edie) and Chicago Fire (Isabella). Now she’s starring in a new TV series, South of Hell. She plays Maria Abascal, “a demon-hunter-for-hire whose power stems from within.” Literally. She has a demon named Abigail living inside of her. They share a soul. Of course Maria wants to overtake Abigail but that’s not going to be easy.
Suvari said the role was “highly challenging,” as Maria has three personalities: “Maria as her genuine self; Abigail in somewhat vampy psycho-sexual mode; and Abigail in full-on demonic fury.” South of Hell is set in Charleston, South Carolina. It will be aired on WEtv later in the year.
