It's really great that being in True Blood has helped their careers so much. They are all really great actors and will be remembered for their True Blood roles forever. Every once in a while I see an actor in something else who was in a past episode of TB and I always know who they are right away, something I rarely remember of other actors. Thanks for the info and sharing with us!
