About Marisa Coulter

Marisa Coulter was first introduced in the trilogy written by Philip Pullman called His Darkest Materials. She was originally described as being beautiful and young with sleek black hair that framed her cheeks. Later accounts of Marisa describe her as having blonde or golden hair, which began after Nicole Kidman’s portrayal of the character in the film The Golden Compass. Pullman agreed to change up her look, even stating that he “got it all wrong” and she should have always had blonde hair. Of course, original fans of the trilogy will always appreciate her darker look, which makes her seem more sinister and mysterious.

Throughout the series, Coulter often appears with her daemon, the golden monkey. The two are a dynamic duo as people become mesmerized by the golden fur and Marisa’s beautiful looks. With a combination like that, they easily manipulate others into doing what they want.
