Contessa Marina della Gherardesca Ferrer is a main character in season one of The L Word, before returning as a guest character in seasons four and six. She is portrayed by Karina Lombard and debuts in the series premiere.
Marina was born to the Della Gherardesca Italian noble family and holds the title of "countess". Her mother lives in a villa in Umbria, Italy, and Marina is fluent in Italian. Nearly 12 years before The L Word, she married the much older Count Manfredi della Francesco Ferrer, though they do not have a conventional marriage and appear to be married in name only.
