In the TV series Edit
Erin is portrayed by Erin Way and is an exclusive character for the TV series.
Seen for the first time with rebels who find and rescue Luke, she seems traumatized by events prior to her affiliation with the others. A red tag is attached to her ear - a device used to identify Handmaids. She refuses to speak, even to her saviors, who do not know her name.
During an attempt to escape to Canada, the rebels are attacked by soldiers and most of the are killed - only Erin and Luke manage to escape.
Erin is seen three years later in Little America, Canada. She lives with Luke and apparently is in much better shape mentally, but seems to remain speechless.
