Actresses Amelia Rose Blaire and Jurnee Smollett Join Cast of ‘True Blood’

by on

Deadline is reporting that True Blood will have some “fresh blood”..pun intended..in the form of some familiar faces! Amelia Rose Blaire (90210) and Jurnee Smollett (Friday Night Lights) have both been added to the True Blood Season 6 cast!

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. I hear Blaire’s role is recurring that could become regular, and Smollett will be a regular.
