EW has the scoop on two new roles for True Blood season 5, including a sibling for one character and clarification on that character we heard about a while back. Are you ready?
Updated with additional details.
First, Eric’s getting a sister! Sort of. Nora was a gorgeous young woman when Godric turned her into a vampire, meaning she and Eric share a Maker. As if that weren’t enough, Nora is also a double-agent within the Vampire Authority. She is described as intelligent and cool under pressure. She loves Eric deeply, but has dedicated herself to a higher purpose (taking down the Authority?). Can we assume she’s Eric’s “friends in high places” mentioned last season?
Second, remember the “mysterious vampire” they sent out a casting call for back in August? Then Raelle Tucker teased that we “may have heard of her”? The vampire in question is none other than Salome, the daughter of King Herod who called for John the Baptist’s head on a silver platter in the New Testament. In the True Blood universe, she’s an ancient vampire who’s also a skilled seductress (of course) and possibly crazy (naturally). She’s incredibly powerful, but able to hide that when it suits her. The character has dark hair and dark features and is “exotic looking”.
Both of these characters sound fantastic! What do you think? Who would you cast? Sound off below!
NOTE: This is not a thread for discussing Bill/Sookie vs. Eric/Sookie. There are plenty of other places to debate the merits of both (have you been to our forum?). Please stay on topic.
