True Blood Picks Up Lucy Griffiths to Play Eric’s Vampire Sister

True Blood Picks Up Lucy Griffiths to Play Eric's Vampire SisterTrue 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.
