When Love Kills: The Seduction of John Hearn is made-for-television movie based on the real life story of John Hearn and Debbie Banister. Debbie Banister, played by Marg, is the vice president of a bank in Gainesville, Florida. She answers an ad that John Hearn has placed in the magazine ‘Soldier of Fortune.’ John Hearn, played by Gary Cole, is a former Marine who served in Vietnam, who is looking to start up a ‘security’ business. Because John presents himself as a hired gun, Debbie plays upon his attraction to her and convinces him to kill her sister’s ex-husband and even her own husband, mainly by convincing John that these two men are abusive monsters. John is unaware that the real motivation in both cases is money.
Here are some highlights of Marg’s performance as Debbie.
