We already knew that Season 5 of HBO’s “True Blood” is going to introduce us to Nora, Eric Northman’s (Alexander Skarsgard) centuries-old vampire “sister”, and now we have word on who will be playing her. Read on for the details!
Per TVLine Lucy Griffiths (best known for her role as Marian in the BBC drama “Robin Hood”) will portray Nora, another progeny of Eric’s “father”, Godric, who is working as a double agent within the Vampire Authority. Described as intelligent, intimidating, cool under pressure, and a very good liar, Nora loves Eric deeply but has dedicated her life to a higher purpose.
If her name sounds familiar, it may be from our earlier reports on “Awakening”, a prospective pilot for The CW that never quite took off, in which Griffiths was slated to play one of two sisters coming of age and facing off against one another amidst the beginning of a zombie uprising. Guess it all worked out in her favor after all!
The fifth season of “True Blood” starts production later this year ahead of its summer, 2012 return.
