True Blood Season 5 Casting Call Update

Entertainment Weekly gave us a little bit more insight to one of the casting calls for True Blood’s season 5. Casting call posted on site here: 

Here is the information they have on TWO roles being cast:

[box] Creator Alan Ball and his team of scribes have put out a casting call for someone to play Nora, a beautiful and intelligent 25-to-35 something who plays a double agent within the Vampire Authority. What’s even better than that? She’s got a big history with Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) because she’s a progeny of Godric.

Nora will be a series regular role that may (or may not) involve a little nudity. (It IS True Blood, after all).

Meanwhile, Co-Executive Producer Raelle Tucker told EW that they’ll include a “very significant, strong, mysterious woman at the center of one of our main stories next year … a very familiar and compelling character. It may be someone you’ve heard of before.” Especially if you’ve read the Bible: The True Blood team also put out the call for someone to play Salome, as in THE Salome, daughter of Herodias, from the good book. She’s a powerful ancient vampire (hmm, don’t remember that part from the New Testament) and a world-class seductress who’s also a little mad. So she’ll fit right into Bon Temps.[/box]



full casting call:

Monday, Oct. 17, 2011


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.



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.

    Im hoping for a love interest for Eric as I firmly believe Sookie is not the woman for him. She holds him to such a high standard while she is a complete doormat for Bill . Eric has treated her with kid gloves while Bill has figuratively completely slapped her in the face more times then I care to count ant yet she expects nothing from him and everything from Eric.

      I do believe we may have a love interest for Eric in one of the two characters. Seems that the “Nora” character is based on the “Judith” character in the books. Judith was Bill’s “sister” so maybe Alan Ball is giving that character action to Eric (for once). Fun to find out that Eric has a “sister”. I miss the Eric and Sookie interaction from the books but I did like a lot of their interaction in season 4. Thanks for posting!
