British actress Lucy Griffiths, the 25 year old beauty who played Marian in the BBC drama Robin Hood will be portraying Eric’s Vampiric sister in season 5 of HBO. To date we haven’t seen or heard anything about another immortal Northman so we’re dying to hear how she fits into the story! She is also an apparently disciple of Godric (Eric’s ‘maker’) and is now working as a double agent within the Vampire Authority. Yikes! The character is described as intelligent, methodical and a master manipulator (runs in the family, I guess?)
We’ll have to wait until next summer to find out for sure. True Blood season 5 begins in roughly 7 months… I know, I know Trubies… waiting sucks.
