Posted by Lynnpd On March - 11 - 2014

lorenabillMariana Klaveno, “True Blood’s” Lorena, has been cast in the supporting role of a detective in Kevin Williamson’s still untitled pilot for CBS.

The plot summary:

The psychological thriller revolves around two detectives, Beth and Jack (McDermott), who handle stalking incidents for the Threat Assessment Unit of the LAPD. McDermott’s Jack Larsen is a recent transfer from New York. His healthy confidence and quick thinking have gotten him into trouble in the past — a past he hopes to leave behind.

Mariana will play “Janice,” who is underestimated in her unit because of her somewhat flashy appearance.

Sean Harry’s Starfury events have been running for many years now and the third annual Vampire Ball was hosting True Blood’s regular guests Allan Hyde who plays Godric and Mariana Klaveno who plays Lorena. Mariana had cancelled two years previously and I was on honeymoon the previous year so was looking forward to meeting her for the first time as well as Allan who was very funny at the first Vampire Ball.

The venue this year was the Renaissance hotel next to Heathrow airport which makes it easier to get to for con goers outside of the UK. I arrived late evening on the Friday night and bought regular tickets on the door. After checking into my hotel room it was straight down for the opening ceremony in the main hall. Sean Harry opened the con and introduced the guests. His banter with the crowd was great and he joked about the lack of Twilight guests at his cons. Juliet Landau and James Masters were the big names to keep the legions of Buffy fans happy this year.

Mariana Klaveno was the first True Blood guest introduced and she joked that she had kicked Allan Hyde in his privates backstage. Allan came out minutes later doubled up pretending that actually happened. Allan was sporting a beard which I had not seen before so looked a bit older than the last time I had seen him. Mariana had her hair dyed blond.

After the opening ceremony there was a meet and greet for gold ticket holders that I would be missing out on this time. Following this there was a party themed on Sunningdale from Buffy. I went dressed in my Captain Hammer T-shirt with black gauntlets. I met up with Truebie friends I had made at previous cons and we sat at a table together. The party went on late into the night. There were a few people in Merlotte waitress costumes including a bloke in drag as Sookie which was hilarious.

After breakfast the next morning my first True Blood related activity was the photo shoot at midday with Allan and Mariana. I dressed in my Andy Bellefleur sherif costume for this and Allan and Mariana aprreciated the effort I had made with the costume. A little while later in the afternoon they gave the first of their two guest talks together. The talk started a little late as Allan is a big Chelsea fan and had been watching them beat Arsenal on the TV!

Allan and Mariana joked about Godric’s Obi-Wan style comeback as figure in shining white light. When asked what other True Blood character they would like to play, Allan said Lorena and Mariana said Lafayette. Their favourite True Blood episodes were Godric’s death scene and Lorena torturing Bill. Allan talked about how he played someone much older by studying videos of old people and doing less which made him look more wise. If they could appear in other shows, Allan said he would like to be in the Walking Dead and Marianna said she would like to be in Game of Thrones. Allan said he would like to be a chef if he wasn’t an actor. He recounted a funny story of making Bolognese sauce all day for a friend and his friends flatmate making one out of a jar that his flat mates thought was better! Mariana spoke about the infamous head twist scene when she was making love to Bill and how they had to take a dummy life cast of her torso. They would leave it on set naked and she asked them to cover it up so they put a bra on it!

True Blood’s Lorena, aka, Mariana Klaveno has also been seen in the last season of Dexter. Last Tuesday, August 7, she attended the Blu-ray and DVD launch of “Dexter: The Complete Sixth Season” at the Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles. See photos of Mariana at the event below:


Writer/producer Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies) has found his ideal Lily Munster for his darkly comic Munsters reboot, Mockingbird Lane in Bill’s maker, Lorena. There’s just one problem – she’s already under contract to for the pilot, Devious Maids.

After ABC failed to pick up Devious to series, it seemed actress Mariana Klaveno would be freed from her role as the self-centered actress wife of Grant Show’s daytime soap actor character. But now that Lifetime has expressed interest in Devious (a decision is expected to be reached by week’s end before the actors’ contracts expire later this month), it’s up to Cherry whether or not to release Mariana from the role so she can play the much larger and high-profile part of ageless vampire beauty Lily, who magically materializes from a mass of spiders in Bryan’s new version for NBC.

Lily would be Mariana’s second vampire role. While the 32-year-old actress has had parts on Dexter and Hawaii Five-0, it was her devilishly delicious turn as Bill’s blood-sucking maker Lorena Krasiki on True Blood that led to her now being caught in a tug of war between Mockingbird Lane and Devious Maids. Should Mariana join Mockingbird, she’ll reside in the family’s haunted house alongside Jerry O’Connell as Herman, Eddie Izzard as Grandpa and Mason Cook as Eddie.


We hope Mariana gets the part she wants the most, but like everyone else, we’ll just have to wait and see.

For more information on this event, please go to:

True Blood’s Carrie Preston has joined those who support the NOH8 Campaign.

On November 4, 2008 Proposition 8 passed in California, amending the state Constitution to ban same-sex marriage. The defeat provoked a groundswell of initiative within the GLBT community at a grassroots level, with many new political and protest organizations being formed in response.

The NOH8 Campaign is a photographic silent protest created by celebrity photographer Adam Bouska and partner Jeff Parshley in direct response to the passage of Proposition 8. Photos feature subjects with duct tape over their mouths, symbolizing their voices being silenced by Prop 8 and similar legislation around the world, with “NOH8” painted on one cheek in protest.

We reported earlier about two of her True Blood colleagues who have also posed for the photo, Kristin Bauer van Straten and Mariana Klaveno.

It’s so great to see these True Blood ladies supporting such a worthy cause.
