Julia Campbell (first Ellen) and the original John Rimbauer
They should have used Julia Campbell from the mini-series and the man who played John as well.
She was really *beep* creepy as Zombie/Ghost/Vampire Ellen in Rose Red. Even the return of Tsidii Leloka as Sukeena doesn't balance out the inconsistencies!
The fact that Madame Stravinski doesn't appear and how Madame Lu speaks better English and is kind and sweet and not as overweight as in the book speaks volumes.
As well, as April disappearing in the parlour, when it was supposed to be the kitchen, like in the last 2 versions of Rose Red.
