He then agrees to take Margaret’s photograph, and during that meeting, he tries to seduce her; Margaret shows little interest in this matter, but it’s only to keep a certain distance. Margaret requests that he send the photograph to the paper for her birthday photo, which when published caused a scandal. Anthony then takes her home and allows her to keep his motorcycle helmet.

Ben Daniels The Exorcist

He portrayed Father Marcus in The Exorcist television series. He is a fervent holy warrior carrying out an occupation that the church no longer publicly recognizes. Marcus could have been from Leicestershire, England because he briefly mentioned being born near Charnwood Forest and sketched it in his copy of The Book of Revelation. He has also mentioned being a “Midlands boy.”

Marcus is shown to be interested in men and kisses Peter Morrow in the season 2 episode “There But For the Grace of God, Go I.” His relationship with Mouse was unknown, but one demon stated that “girls are not [his] favor.” Given that a vision of his mother spoke with an Irish accent, he is most likely of at least partial ethnic Irish descent.

He met Claire at a free love party in Santa Cruz while touring and fell madly in love with her.
