Evan Rachel Wood Joins True Blood

TV roles are even more coveted than a starring movie role these days. Especially if you can land a role on a Showtime or HBO series!

Evan Rachel Wood will be joining the cast of the wildly popular cult series True Blood on HBO. Apparently show dreator Alan Ball was very keen on getting her for the part.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Wood will play the role of Sophie-Anne, the vampire queen of Louisiana. That’s no joke!

The role of Sophie is described as a 500-year old vampire from France who is as wise and charming as she is ruthless. Evan’s episodes will air towards the end of the show’s upcoming second season.

No word on the renewal of season three yet. But with the way the vampire phenomenon keeps growing, we’re sure this show will come back for a 3rd season. And if it’s renewed, we hear Evan will reprise her role again.
