True Blood Cast Adds Jurnee Smollett and Amelia Rose Blaire

HBO’s TV series True Blood will have our favorite vampires hit hard by the humans this season. Arliss Howard has been cast as the Governor of Louisiana and he has a daughter, Amelia Rose Blaire. Jurnee Smollett will play a “do-gooder” on the TV series.

Jurnee Smollett (in picture below on left; "Friday Night Lights," "Do No Harm") will play Nicole who is a "do-gooder". Whatever that means by being so general. Her character is focused on doing the right thing and not about greed.

Amelia Rose Blaire (in picture below on right; "90210") will play a recurring character who is the daughter of the Governor Truman Burrell (Arliss Howard). Her character has a past of issues with her father regarding the rights of vampires.

HBO’s True Blood returns in June 2013. For more news, visit "True Blood" on, "like" "True Blood" on Facebook, and catch them on Twitter.
