Yvonne De Carlo, as Lily Munster, playing the harp. Lily Munster, Countess of Shroudshire (née Dracula), was originally played by De Carlo. The matriarch of the Munster household, Lily is an undead vampire. Her name is presumably derived from the tradition of the lily as a flower of death, or a vague reference to Lilith, one of mythology's oldest known vampires.
