Audiences met Dr Marlow Rhodes (Liz Carr) in episode two of The OA season two called Treasure Island after private investigator Karim Washington (Kingsley Ben-Adir) tracked her down.

The character was a recluse, who took some time to trace, but Karim managed to locate her to an isolated house in the middle of the wilderness.

Dr Marlow was working on a secret project for Peter Ruskin (Vincent Kartheiser) but decided to quit after she became unsure about it.

She was tasked with listening to people’s dreams and recording the important details for him.

During the course of her work, Dr Marlow started to notice a pattern between the dreams: a rose stained glass window, a curved double-sided staircase and a tunnel the size of a coffin.

There was only one building in the world that had all three of these things from the dreams - the house on Nob Hill in San Francisco.

Ruskin wanted to find out why the house was important to these dreams and designed the game Q symphony and used gamers to help unlock its secrets.

Dr Marlow quit the project because Ruskin crossed a boundary with things from dreams entering the waking world and that was something she couldn’t live with.

Although Dr Marlow’s presence was fleeting, many people have been wondering about the actress who is familiar to British audiences.
