Legend of the Seeker is a fantasy tv show, based on Terry Goodkind's "Sword of Truth" book series. Richard Cypher is the Seeker of Truth, a hero who has a destiny to defeat evil. He is joined by Kahlan Amnell, the Mother Confessor, Zeddicus Zu'l Zorander, Wizard of the First Order and Cara, the Mord-Sith.
Tabrett Bethell first appeared in "Reckoning", the season 1 finale as Cara, then joined as a regular for the second season.
Cara is the toughest Mord-Sith who carries and fights with two Agiels (weapons that inflict great pain to both the wielder and the victim). She was trained to govern her emotions, to be a killer, serving Darken Rahl in every way. But after she joins Richard and the others, Cara slowly realizes that she was wrong about many things and she is starting to change and open up to others. The writers did a great job with the character, Cara changed, evolved at least a little bit in every episode. Her relationship with Kahlan was one of the main storylines throughout the second season. Tabrett Bethell did a wonderful job portraying every layer of this very complex, conflicted and flawed character on her way to redemption.
The show was not renewed for a third season, but the fans are doing everything they can to bring back Legend of the Seeker. You can find all the information you need if you want to help at the site below, just click on the picture.
