Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer and Alexander Skarsgård co-star with Eastenders‘ Rob Kazinsky, added to play Ben, a charismatic faerie and yet another love interest for little Sookie. 90210‘s Amelia Rose Blaire has been cast in the role of Willa Burrell, Governor’s daughter and vampire sympathiser.

Arliss Howard, who is set to play Louisiana Governor Truman Burrell, a politician with a deep-seated grudge against the Cold Ones after his wife ran off with one, leaving him sole care of his daughter, Willa. TV Line reports that Truman has a tendancy to let personal ambition cloud his judgment and override his humanity.

Friday Night Lights‘ star Jurnee Smollet will be playing good-hearted non-supe Nicole and Rutger Hauer who will be playing Macklyn, “a mysterious and sinister figure with deep ties to Sookie and Jason”
