Casting News – Nora

November 3, 2011 in Secondary Characters, True Blood

According to TVline, it looks like Lucy Griffiths will be playing Nora, Godric’s other progeny and Eric’s sister, introduced in these casting calls here.

Griffiths is most well known for her role as Marian in BBC’s Robin Hood, – You know,.. the version where Marian wore pants.

I can’t say I found her to be a stellar actress on that show, but her character was endearing. To be honest, I think she’s kind of adorable.

What do you think of this casting news and does this make you more interested in Season 5?

… even just a little bit?

Season 5 Casting News

October 18, 2011 in Eric Northman, Secondary Characters, True Blood

If you feel almost ready to drag yourselves out of your Season 4 PTSD-state for a moment, the first interesting casting calls are out for Season 5.

[SALOME] 20 to 40. THE Salome from the Bible. Dark haired with dark features, exotic looking, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and /or African. An ancient vampire who is a world class seductress and fiercely intelligent. She also has quite a lot of madness in her. She is the most powerful person in every way yet capable of hiding this power when it serves her purposes. Series Regular. Possible nudity.

Bookies recognise the name of this character from Book 5, Dead As A Doornail – she was summoned by Eric to assist with her batshit crazy child Mickey when he got all mean and nasty with Tara. Her name will no doubt be where her similarity to the book character begins and ends.

The Bible refers to two women by the name of Salome – one was a belly dancer who demanded the head of John the Baptist on a platter; the other was the mother of the disciples James and John, and was present at the crucifixion of Christ. Either way, it’s safe to peg this particular vampire at around two thousand years old.

And of course, she’s mad as a cut snake. OF COURSE SHE IS. She’s a woman, after all.

[NORA] 25 to 35. Beautiful, any race, centuries old. A double agent working within the Vampire Authority. Eric’s vampire “sister” – a progeny of Godric. Intelligent, intimidating, cool under pressure and a very good liar. She loves Eric deeply, but has dedicated her life to a higher purpose. Series Regular. Possible nudity.

And here comes Bill’s Eric’s vampire sister, demonstrating once again that every aspect of Book Bill/Eric and True Blood Bill/Eric is completely interchangeable because that’s why people watch.

I wonder if Nora’s connection to the Authority makes her one of Eric’s “friends in high places” mentioned by Bill in season 4. Because you KNOW that if Eric has a sister with some clout in the Authority, Bill will have known about it first.

“And When I Die” – Clips

September 9, 2011 in 4.12 And When I Die, Promo Video, True Blood, video

New clips are out for the finale. So far I’ve only been able to find two, I’ll update if there is a third.

First up, looks like Tommy Mickens-Merlotte get’s a funeral and we have a Maxine sighting. Right off the bat, one must wonder what Sam told her about how Tommy died. For now I presume it was a hero’s death that went tragically astray while fixing a light bulb though I do want to know why Sam doesn’t seem to be under any suspicion by Maxine at all.. Not that he would shoot his brother or anything.

On another note, while I loved Tommy this season, if they gave a funeral to each and every poor nitwit that died on the pool table at Merlotte’s, this show would suffer from more problems than it currently has. Therefore, I have to think there is something else to this scene than crying over spilt shifter. Shall it be interrupted by the natural gas man? Will one of the fairies walk out of the portal nearby to say amen? Or will Maxine and Sam merely wax poetic over Tommy who died two episodes ago?

Then we have Sookie who mysteriously decided work is a good idea and first thing back shrugs off her sideboard duties in order to listen to Alcide’s proposition involving brains and hearts. All Sookie intelligence jokes aside, Alcide, I can’t take you seriously when you’re making eyes at the girl’s rack like it’s the last pop tart on earth.

Also, if only he hadn’t seen her romping in the forest with Eric a few days ago storywise, this plea might make sense, but then again, I never really thought these two worked on the show except on the carnal level. Of course, there’s always that three-way MAS mentioned. Naah.

And here we are, the next to last stop on the True Blood crazy train. I can’t say my enthusiasm for this episode is the same as it was the premiere but I am looking forward to the finale since alls well that..well,… ends.

Comments, thoughts, last minute regrets? What do you think will happen in the final episode of Season Four?

Season Finale Preview

September 3, 2011 in Promo Video, True Blood, video

There’s a new promo out for the finale, which thankfully some Truebie was quick enough to rip before HBO yanked their version, probably due to a mistaken premature release. I’ve also included the ‘Death’ promo below if you haven’t seen it already.

So it appears in the finale at least one woman follows through on her convictions as Nan and her Spaceballs are at Bill’s door apparently with more-serious-than-usual vampire business. At least this makes sense of why Pam would need consoling by Ginger, but since Nan doesn’t appear to be messing around, I really don’t know how the Queen and his Sheriff are getting out of this, … other than by Sookie’s amazing fairy powers of convenience. And as a few of us speculated, that might appear to be a fairy standing next to Sookie while looking up at the pyre, but it may very well be Holly dressed just as ridiculously as the creatures on this show themselves.

As for other plot lines, Debbie seems to be in Sookie’s kitchen with her shotgun firing away, but I can’t discern who it is on the ground in that fake-out splicing sequence. Sam? Terry? I don’t know. I’m not sure if I care.

And then, … is Lafayette summoning the demon inside of Jesus to take down Antonia? For the love of everything sacred, Antonia doesn’t want to do this anymore!! Nevertheless, I suppose the befuddled witch can hold a grudge for a few more days if she somehow held her previous one for 400. I have to think this also proves whatever happens next episode at the Moon Goddess Emporium is ultimately futile in taking down her spirit but maybe not necessarily Marnie. At any rate, I’m calling it now RIP Marns, we hardly knew ye.
