Two new actresses have been added to the upcoming sixth season of HBO's True Blood.
Amelia Rose Blaire will play Willa Burrell, daughter of the governor of Louisiana. The two do not see eye-to-eye on the vampire rights issue (I have to assume she is "for.") Blaire's few credits have been mostly guest roles on shows like Grimm, 90210, Touch, and The Glades.
Jurnee Smollett will play Nicole Wright, an idealist who is always looking to do what is right. Smollett's credits include Eve's Bayou, Roll Bounce, and Friday Night Lights. Smollett will join as a regular, while Blaire will be a recurring character with the option to become a regular.
