Mother Malkin is the primary antagonist in the book series The Wardstone Chronicles and in its 2015 film adaptation Seventh Son.
In the film, she is portrayed by Julianne Moore, who also played Alma Coin in the Hunger Games film series and Margaret White in the 2013 version of Carrie, and later played Poppy Adams in Kingsman: The Golden Circle.
In the movie, Malkin is a very dangerous creature. Many years ago, she was captured by John Gregory, but was freed. She regrouped with her sister, Lizzie, and her followers, including Radu, and aimed to take over the world. She was ultimately killed by Tom Ward.
