Season 6 of “True Blood” will be hitting HBO later this year. After a 5th Season that found a lot of you guys reinvigorated in the show after a sub-par 4th outing, I expect that interest in Bon Temps is still high. To that end, the show has recently added 2 actresses to its roster. Amelia Rose Blaire (pictured above; “90210”) and Jurnee Smollett (pictured below; “Friday Night Lights”).
Per Deadline, “Blaire will play Willa Burrell, the daughter of Louisiana Gov. Truman Burrell (Arliss Howard), who has long clashed with her father over vampire rights. Smollett will play wide-eyed Nicole Wright, who is not concerned with money and more concerned with the common good and doing what’s right. Blaire’s role is recurring that could become regular, and Smollett will be a regular.”
More importantly, how do you think Alan Ball’s departure will affect the show?
