We just received a small casting scoop in regards to HBO’s fifth season of “True Blood“, which begins lensing next month in Louisiana.
Insiders tell us that one of the subplots will focus on “Nora”, Eric’s (Alexander Skarsgård) vampire “sister” born of Godric (Allan Hyde). While she loves Eric, she’s also a double agent working for the Vampire Authority.
The big news, though, is that the next season will circle around “Salome” — you know, THE Salome from “The Bible”. She’s the daughter of Herodias and an icon of dangerous female seductiveness, for instance depicting as erotic her dance mentioned in the New Testament (in some later transformations further iconised to the dance of the seven veils), or concentrate on her lighthearted and cold foolishness that, according to the gospels, led to John the Baptist’s death. – Wiki.
