According to TVLine True Blood star Luke Grimes has left HBO’s supernatural shagfest over the direction of his character, which will be recast for Season 7.

Grimes played James, a vampire love interest for Deborah Ann Woll’s Jessica Hamby, who was introduced in True Blood Season 6 Episode 2, ‘The Sun’.

TVLine‘s source said, “”He initially joined the show because he wanted to work with Deborah Ann Woll.

“But when he started reading the scripts for Season 7, he was disappointed to learn that they were going in a completely different direction with James.”

True Blood Season 6 airs on Mondays at 10pm on FOX. Pick up Season 5 on DVD for £28.75 or Blu-ray for £36 from Amazon.co.uk.
