When True Blood premieres for its fifth season on June 10th on HBO, there will be lots of new faces! And one of them is our very own, Carolyn Hennesy!
That’s right! The On-Air On-Soaps Podcast co-host, General Hospital star, Tween novelist extraordinaire, and Barb of Cougar Town, has a fantastic role in the new season as Rosalyn Harris of The Vampire Authority! And somehow Carolyn’s juicy role got even juicier, when it was revealed that her character is connected to the show’s newest hunk, former Law & Order SVU star, Christopher Meloni, who plays Roman in the hit vampire saga!
First look images of Carolyn and Christopher along with all the other new True Blood season 5 cast additions were previewed over the weekend by Zap2it.com!
Hennesy previewed how she and Meloni are intertwined on True Blood in the new season in a recent interview with lenalamoray.com “She was made an Authority Council Member by the Guardian, Chris Meloni’s character (Roman). This happened centuries ago so what their relationship was like, we don’t know yet. If the Authority has been around 2000 years then she has been a member for 1900 years. As long as the Authority has been around she’s pretty much been a part of it. All of my other Authority members as it stands now like Christopher Heyerdahl (as Dieter Braun), Peter Mensah (as Kibwe), and Chris Meloni. There are some huge, huge political battles being fought in the vampire world this season. There are a lot of heavy duty and very important council meetings.”
