Part 3 of Season 5 Spoilers, Castings Continued

From Rhoswen7- Oh yeah, and Stephen Moyer's the director
TRUE BLOOD, Episode #508, "Somebody That I Used to Know" 
Director: Stephen Moyer Writer: Mark Hudis Location: L.A. Start Date: approx. 4/2/12 
[REGGIE] Male, mid 20s to early 30s. Caucasian. A good looking redneck, a member of a trashy, low-rent anti-vampire hate group. Co-star 
[SARAH COMPTON-HARRIS] Female Caucasian 70s - 80s. Seen in a flashback to 1931, the elderly, very frail Sarah has been ravaged by cancer and is close to death. One day guest star.

Speculation from "Not only is Steve directing this episode, but it appears we’re getting a look at Bill’s history: the show is casting Sarah Compton-Harris, an elderly woman seen in flashback to 1931. She’s in her 70s-80s, and ravaged by cancer. Does Bill find his daughter at death’s door and offer her an alternative?" While I don't think he would offer her a vamp life he might be there to offer comfort or just to watch from the sidelines, remember Bill was forced to turn Jessica, it's not his style.
[RYDER] This large guy is a wolf who addresses the Shreveport pack as they face a change in leadership. Guest star 
[LADY PACKMEMBER] This female member of the wolf pack makes a wry suggestion at a meeting. Co-star 
[SEAN] College age, lean and tall like a long-distance runner, Sean is a University track star who's put in the terrifying position of having to out-run a wolf pack. Co-star 
[FEMALE] 20s Caucasian, she begs for her life as she is fed on by a vampire. Co-star 
AM] Double to Sam Trammell. 5'9 1/2" - 5'10" 155 - 160 lbs. 38 chest. Actor must look just like Sam Trammell.  
Yeah fans were just clammoring for more fairies, no?
UPDATE-Rhoswen7's casting info-
Here's a revised casting notice that changes the age of a character:TRUE BLOOD, Episode #508, "Somebody That I Used to Know" (Revised Role of Sarah)
Start Date: approx. 4/2/12
[SARAH COMPTON-HARRIS] Female Caucasian 40-45. Seen in a flashback to 1931, in a scene with Bill (Stephen Moyer). One day guest star 
That's an interesting change. She can't be Bill's daughter unless he made her a vampire around 1900. If she'shuman and 40-45 in 1931, then she's got to be his granddaughter or a neice. This revised casting notice doesn't mention anything about her being sick or near death.

 UPDATE C/O Rhoswen7- Another casting notice for episode #508: 
TRUE BLOOD, Episode #508, "Somebody That I Used to Know"

Start Date: approx. 4/2/12
[RECEPTIONIST] Female, 20s, perky vampire, any ethnicity. Co-star. No lines in this episode, but will recur.

EXCLUSIVE From Deadline: Camilla Luddington, who portrayed Kate Middleton in the Lifetime movie William and Kate, has landed a recurring role on the upcoming season of HBO’s vampire drama True Blood, which will have a special focus on fairies. Luddington will play Claudette, one of Claude’s (Giles Matthey) many sisters, who gives Sookie insight into what it means to be a faerie. The actress, repped by Progressive Artists, Main Title and attorney Scott Whitehead, most recently did a nine-episode on Showtime’s Californication, which wraps up a week from Sunday. IMDB  Remember folks, all Fae are Brits, oy. She pops up in episode 6, "Hopeless".

korrinarico KorrinaRico 
Any of my #Trueblood fans out there? I just booked a role on the show and im really excited!!IMDB

  This post is on the original casting page, we haven't seen her yet so if she isnt a fae, and she doesnt look like any we've seen,  who is she? Was she on a swing at the Fairy club, lol?

   Jessica Clark was Lilith, don't remember if she is listed for any other episodes, I'll look it up tomorrow when I'm not half asleep. IMDB


  1. A double needed for Sam? Too bad Tommy wasn't still around to shift

  2. Hey Laura, I found some vids from MonsterMania, they were too clear but still it Kristin!

    1. Oh good. Some video from the Q&A I guess? Lots of new peeps here. Hope enough time spent on our regulars. I guess they will use one of their awful remakes on the song, "Everybody Wants to Rule the World." Loved that song. Wow, Debbie Pelt's father looks scaarrrieee.

  3. He will be scary to Alcide at least. Thanks for reading!
