More casting news is coming in for HBO’s “True Blood” Season 5, this time in the fairy category, as newcomer Giles Matthey has landed the multi-episode role of Claude, a hot and mysterious British fairy.
Per EW, Claude was previously played (briefly) by Neil Hopkins (“Lost”) on the show, but the powers-that-be have opted to recast the part with Matthey. One unconfirmed rumor is that Claude will catch Jessica’s interest and attention in the upcoming season; but according to the books by Charlaine Harris on which the show is based, “Women usually say ‘wow’ when they see him, but his interest is men.”
The books further describe Claude as “the nephew of Sookie’s half-human/half-fairy grandfather, Fintan, and cousin to Sookie’s father… He makes an impact on all women and is described as being absolutely breathtaking… He started out as a stripper at Hooligans, a club in Monroe, which he later becomes owner of, and has branched out to print and runway modeling.”
The fifth season of Alan Ball’s “True Blood” returns in the summer of 2012. Keep it here for what are sure to be lots of announcements in the coming weeks, and for more in the meantime visit “True Blood” on HBO.com.
