  • 10/4/12

    Season Six

    Start Date: January 2013

    Location: Los Angeles

    [BEN] Mid 20s to mid 30s. Ultra charming, ultra handsome. Needs to feel like the kind of guy women and men are completely drawn to, but also needs to possess a low-key quality, a southern gentility, that Sookie would find familiar and comfortable. His dark side, however, is dark, dark, dark…SERIES REGULAR. ONE-YEAR DEAL.-Role filled by Rob Kasinsky

    [MACKLYN] CAST (RUTGER HAUER) A mysterious figure with deep ties to Sookie and Jason. Sinister, at first blush…UPDATE: looks like Rutger Hauer will play the role of NIALL!! 

    [GOVERNOR OF TEXAS] Exactly what you’d expect. Rick Perry. Handsome, a little slick, a politician. He is a warmonger…VERY, VERY STRONG RECURRING

    [GOVERNOR OF TEXAS' DAUGHTER] Strong woman, 20s, pretty. She first appears fearful but, we could come to find out she is quite tough. …VERY, VERY STRONG RECURRING

    [NICOLE JANNSEN] Bi-Racial (African American / Caucasian) Mid 20s.   A true bleeding heart. She’s not at all concerned with money, she’s concerned with the common good and doing what’s right. Probably went to Bryn Mawr and drives an old Saab. Life hasn’t beaten her down yet.  She and her band of well-meaning liberal advocates model themselves after the civil rights activist “Freedom Riders” of the Sixties. A do-gooder to the core, Nicole’s naive optimism is charming but ultimately vaguely idiotic and dangerous…SERIES REGULAR


    UPDATE: The role of Nicole has been filled by Jurnee Smollet 1/21/13

    [CREIGHTON BURRELL] Governor of Louisiana (Late 40s-60s) A classic good ol’ boy politician.

    I’m 12 years old from Sanford, NC. I know that i’m young to be watching the show, but I really love it and would really love to be apart of it. I was interested in playing the Authority Guard #1. This would be a really great opportunity for me.

      Also I don’t really have any acting experience yet but I have wanted to be an actor ever since I was really young. I also don’t have an agent or manager, but with the right people I think that I would make a great actor.

    I’m 14, female, from Nashville TN. I love the show and have a passion for acting. I don’t have any experience in acting, but it’s a road I would love to pursue. If there’s any roles available, it would be a honor. I don’t have a manager or agent, though. Also, I have a formal southern accent, brown hair, brown eyes. I’m Caucasian and my height is 5’4.

  10. Denice

    Do you ever cast for extras? Would I need a manager for that kind of work? How would I find information for those roles?

    1. admin Post author

      Your best bet would be to contact one of the companies that does casting for extras. If you have a manager that helps a lot. (they are the ones that will be able to submit to the casting people at HBO) good luck!

      1. Anonymous

        Hi im from Oklahoma & we don’t have outlet to things as far as agents or managers please lookmme up on Facebook I’m surei would fit perfectly Heath Gross… Please Help Me.

  11. Kinga

    I bet, you don’t cast people from other countries that the USA, don’t you? I mean sometimes it is possible to take part in castings by making internet calls.
    Thanks for your attention, if there is some.

    1. admin Post author

      Stephen Moyer did a casting from overseas (through video conferencing on the computer) but also had to come to LA to speak with everyone. It is not easy to be cast from overseas. If you have a manager that might make it a little better. Good luck!!

  12. I am interested in the wildlife advisor for the governor

    I look forward to hearing from you , and possibly reading for the wildlife advisor, i been a fan of tru blood for the last five years..

    1. admin Post author

      I believe the role has already been filled. When I watched rehearsals and filming for the episode I did see the person playing this character. Your best bet is to work with a manager to hopefully set up an audition. Good luck!

  13. giselle

    I am a huge fan of the show. I would love to play jenny the werewolf or any other role available I am 24 years old, petite, long hair, hazel yes, light skin, full of energy, spontaneous, daring, a bartender, and did I mention I love to be nude.. hope to hear from you :) xoxoxo

    1. admin Post author

      This page is just an informational one ie I’m not a casting agent. Work with a manager and hopefully they can get you to the casting directors for the show. good luck

  14. Diane

    I don’t think people are getting the fact you are not a member of the casting department or an agent. It was nice of you to tell them how to go about getting on the show though.

    These fairy kids are going to be a thorn in side all season because it makes no sense for them to grow up that fast. I will shut up now….lol

  15. shannon bryant

    I feel like I’m on a wild goose chase looking for sights to apply for characters and extras.Can anyone lead me in the right direction or do agencies simply look at facebook profiles if you add yourself?Hope to get some feed back so that i can support the show.I’m new to the industry and was just cast as an extra on “Nashville “ABC and finished shooting on the film “Elizabeth”i don’t have an agent..can you tell?lol.Somebody give me some feed back please. :)

    1. admin Post author

      Your best bet is to work with a manager who can get your information to the proper casting agents. It is just really tough without one. congrats on the castings!! I know backstage.com has a way to be able to submit your info to agents but not sure if the True Blood ones utilize their services. Good luck!

  16. sarah
