Where Have I Seen You Before, Nan Flanagan?

By  |  4 Comments

Nan Flanagan was a character introduced in season one and seen in all three seasons following that. She was the spokesperson for the American Vampire League and later, was revealed as a member of the Authority.

Nan was played by Jessica Tuck, who is known largely for her roles on Judging Amy (Gillian Gray) and One Life to Live (Megan Gordon Harrison). Throughout her career she has been seen in TV shows such as Home Improvement, Picket Fences, Murder, She Wrote, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, Murder One, Party of Five, Criminal Minds, Everwood, and more recently Bones and Private Practice.

Tuck also had a recurring role in the NBC hit thrill-drama, Grimm. Ironically enough she played a witch, or in Grimm’s world, Hexenbeist. And she met a sticky end on there as well. She was also just spotted in the ABC Family series Switched at Birth.

Jessica has appeared in films such as Super 8 and two High School Musical films.

We kinda miss Nan on True Blood. She exuded authority in a cool calm and collected manner, and she was always so sleek and sophisticated in her dress.

    She also had a small part in the James Spader/Maggie Gyllenhaal film ‘Secretary’ where she played Spader’s ex. She appears in two or three scenes.

    Jessica also had a recurring role on Days of Our Lives a couple of years ago! The character was a complete contrast to Nan!

    Leading up to, and in the early days of her time on TB she was also on Days of Our Lives. I have found that if I see she is on a show, or in a movie it will be worth the time to watch. I don’t think she is Meryl Streep but she always adds something to whatever project she is working on, that just would not be the same without her. I am still hoping for at least some flash backs with her in future shows.
