Eric Northman gets a vampire sister in True Blood

From Sherwood forest to Bon Temps…

Maid Marian (Lucy Griffiths) from the BBC’s Robin Hood drama will be appearing in True Blood season five. Griffiths will be starring as Nora, Eric’s vampire “sister” and fellow progeny of Godric, whose character has been created outside of the world of Charlaine Harris’ novels. Here’s the official description:

Griffiths will play Nora, Eric’s (Alexander Skarsgard) centuries-old vampire “sister” (they were both progenies of Godric) who is working as a double agent within the Vampire Authority. Described as intelligent, intimidating, cool under pressure and a very good liar, Nora loves Eric deeply, but has dedicated her life to a higher purpose.

This will mark Griffiths’ first US break, after the zombie pilot Awakening was dropped. What do you think of this casting news?
