True Blood will be expanding its undead roster in Season 5 with the addition of a young lady with close ties to Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard).
British actress Lucy Griffiths is jumping over the Atlantic to recur in her first American television series in True Blood: Season 5. She will play Nora, a vampire who shares the same maker (Godric) as Eric and thus can be considered his “vampire sister,” and immediately become a regular cast member.
Nora works within the Vampire Authority as a double agent. Bill and Eric will likely be on the run from the Authority considering the events of the Season 4 finale.
Griffiths appeared as Maid Marian in the first two seasons of BBC’s Robin Hood series.
HBO is ramping up to begin production on True Blood: Season 5 later this month.
