I’m always amused and annoyed by the movie or play adaptations of the novel Dracula that make Mina Harker much prettier than Lucy Westenra. In the novel, it was Lucy who was much prettier than Mina. If you’re confused who’s who, Lucy’s the blonde one and Mina has dark hair.
Lucy has three men proposing to her in the same day and nearly everyone comments on how lovely she looks. Characters praise Lucy’s looks far more often than they praise Mina’s appearance.
Lucy was so beautiful that Mr Swales doesn’t insult Lucy but acts doubly rude to Mina and tells Mina off, despite Mr Swales liking Mina.
