The wait is over! True Blood fans will finally meet a “sibling” of hunky Eric Northman when the HBO drama returns next summer.

Meet Nora, a beautiful and intelligent double agent within the Vampire Authority who’s the progeny of Eric’s maker Godric. She will be played by Lucy Griffiths, a British actress who starred in the BBC’s Robin Hood as Maid Marian.

This is a series regular role that may involve a little nudity. Welcome to HBO, Lucy!

Creator Alan Ball has lots of mayhem in store for Season 5. EW also learned that Denis O’Hare will reprise his role of Russell Edgington, the vampire King of Mississippi. Remember, Russell wasn’t exactly killed off at the end of season 3 — he was just buried alive under silver.
