AS SEEN IN:
'Highlander' - "Modern Prometheus"
AS PLAYED BY:
In this televersion of her life, Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley was inspired to write the story of Frankenstein's Monster after a visit from Duncan MacLeod. Perhaps it was more from knowing that he could rise from the dead, because it couldn't be due to the loneliness brought about by immortality. While "Frankenstein" didn't concern that issue, it was addressed in her story "The Mortal Immortal"......
Back in 2008, I wrote a more detailed look at the life of Mary Shelley in Toobworld, which can be found here.
