What We Do in the Shadows

While "Nadja," played by Natasia Demetriou, has been in a centuries-long marriage with Laszlo, she now has an additional (and fun-sized) partner-in-crime: her dolly that contains her own spirit. Nadja’s doll is a constant reminder for her to live a more productive vampire life. Will Nadja become more than just a gifted singer and lyricist known for hits such as “Hoop Skirt Poop Skirt” and “Witches Are Snitches”?
