Above is the first exclusive image released of LUCY GRIFFITHS in True Blood Season 5.
LUCY joined the cast of the dark and sexy hit TV show for its fifth season earlier this year. She plays Nora, pictured above with show regulars Stephen Moyer (Bill Compton) and Alexander Skarsgård (Eric Northman).
Nora is the second progeny of Eric’s ‘maker’ Godric (if you watch the show, that sentence would have just made perfect sense!) LUCY describes her as “an irreverent British lady who we think was turned during Elizabethan or Victorian times…It’s been years since she’s seen Eric, and she is very excited. She looks up to him, but they’ve had a fiery love/hate relationship in the way that brothers and sisters do.”
She has also revealed more details about the photo: “It occurs just after I’ve met them, and it’s a reaction to being taken by surprise by some threatening characters.” Despite being eight episodes into filming the season, LUCY says that there’s no “Bon Temps romance” for her character but she has her eye on Salome, an ancient vampire seductress played by Italian actress Valentina Cervi.
We’re very excited about the fifth season, which premieres June 10th on HBO! We’ll bring you more info and pics as we get them but in the meantime, check out the tiny teaser below:
