Carolyn Hennesy joins the cast of True Blood this season as one of the vampires on the Authority Council. In an interview with Lena Lamoray, Carolyn gushes over the show (she’s a newbie Truebie), talks about her favorite characters, reveals a little about her own character, and – SPOILER ALERT – confirms our speculation about who Chris Meloni is playing. Here’s an excerpt from the interview:
Lena: How did she become an Authority Council Member?
Carolyn Hennesy: She was made an Authority Council Member by the Guardian, Chris Meloni’s character (Roman). This happened centuries ago so what their relationship was like, we don’t know yet. If the Authority has been around 2000 years then she has been a member for 1900 years. As long as the Authority has been around she’s pretty much been a part of it.
Lena: What characters are we going to be seeing her with the most?
Carolyn Hennesy: All of my other Authority members as it stands now like Christopher Heyerdahl (as Dieter Braun), Peter Mensah (as Kibwe), and Chris Meloni. There are some huge, huge political battles being fought in the vampire world this season. There are a lot of heavy duty and very important council meetings.
Lena: I hope you filmed some scenes with Alexander Skarsgård because he is my favorite.
Carolyn Hennesy: Well, I have worked and I can tell you that I have worked with Alexander and Stephen and I count myself as pretty much the luckiest gal on the face of this Earth because…(expressed with a sultry voice) yes, I have worked with them (laughing).
