This page includes True Blood Season 6’s published calls for casting characters . To see the actors chosen for these parts, go to the Castings page.
|Casting for Episode 6.01 – “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood”|
[CREIGHTON BURRELL] – Governor of Louisiana – This summer, Bon Temps’ vampire population will face something that’s potentially even more dangerous than the sun: Creighton Burrell. Not only is the new regular character a morally murky politician — and the governor of Louisiana! — but he also has a major hate-on for fangers, owing to the fact that his wife ditched him with their daughter to be with one!
[NICOLE JANNSEN] – Caucasian actress in her early 20s. A “do-gooder to the core” Nicole is naive, optimistic, and charming — but her idealism is “ultimately vaguely idiotic and dangerous.”Nicole is a key member of a band of well-meaning liberal advocates. The gang models itself after the civil rights activist Freedom Riders of the 1960s, a group of progressive protesters who rode buses from state to state, challenging racial segregation and Jim Crow travel laws. The Freedom Riders were usually arrested, and fell victim to mob violence, Ku Klux Klan beatings, and cruel and unusual punishment in prison.
[BEN] – an “ultra charming, ultra handsome” fella in his late 20s/early 30s who is magnetic to women and menfolk alike, all while using his Southern gentility to mask a dark, dark, dark side.
[MACKLYN] – a mysterious and sinister figure with deep ties to Sookie and Jason. (SUSPECTED TO BE WARLOW).
