First Image of True Blood’s Alexandra Breckenridge on the Set of The Walking Dead…

November 23, 2014

… Or Is It? You Decide!

Alexandra Breckenridge starred as Katerina Pellham in HBOs True Blood Season 4In Season 4 of HBO’s True Blood, we were introduced to the recurring character of Katerina Pellham (played by Alexandra Breckenridge), the undercover agent, wiccan, and former member of Marnie Stonebrook’s (Fiona Shaw) coven. It is Katerina’s job to ascertain if Marnie’s coven poses a threat to vampires or not. Her role, unfortunately, was short lived after she was killed by Luis Patiño (Peter Macdissi).

However,  actress Alexandra Breckenridge went on to bigger and better things after True Blood. And many fans of FX’s American Horror Story franchise will remember Alexandra from Season 1 when she played the younger version of Moira. She also appeared in Season 3 as the witch Kaylee.

Now, it seems, Alexandra has joined the cast of AMC‘s juggernaut, The Walking Dead. Her role has been bathed in mystery with the only information on her character being as such:

“Samantha” [is] an attractive, strong, smart, charming and articulate woman with a vulnerable side. She’s a mother with a bohemian spirit, and a talented artist.

It is not even sure yet if the character name of Samantha is correct or merely a placeholder name in order to keep spoilers at bay.

Recently though, the following image was released on Instagram, sending Walking Dead fans into a frenzy of conjecture over the character of Beth (played by Emily Kinney) in Season 5. While the image does bear a striking resemblance to Kinney, it semes this may actually be the first on set picture of Alexandra Breckenridge! Truebies and Walking fans alike can make up their own minds:


What do you think? Beth or Samantha? Honestly, that looks like Emily Kinney to me, but let us know your thoughts by commenting below!

True Blood’s Lara Pulver Joins Cast Line Up for a Movie Version of ‘Spooks’

November 22, 2014

Before True Blood, Lara Pulver Was Known For Her Role on the BBC TV Series, Spooks:

Lara Pulver as Claudine S4 Ep3Truebies will remember Lara Pulver as the fairy, Claudine Crane. But before Lara joined the cast of the HBO vampire series, she was known for her role as Erin Watts, the head of the counter-terrorism division for MI5 in the long running BBC TV series, Spooks. This TV series was so loved in the UK that it will now be bought to the big screen via a movie adaptation of the TV series.

Spooks: The Greater Good will also star Peter Firth who will be reprising his role of Harry Pearce, the head of MI5. Kit Harrington (of Game of Thrones fame) will join the cast as Will Holloway, a former agent who is brought back to London from Moscow. The storyline (according to Radio Times) is as follows:

Firth played MI5 head Harry Pearce in every single episode of the drama. We won’t be finding Harry in an especially happy place, though. He is “disgraced and forced to resign” after a terrorist escapes from MI5 custody and “disappears one night off a bridge into the Thames” … Will [Holloway] must decide whether to help Harry or turn his rogue ex-boss in…

Alongside Lara Pulver, Tim McInnerny will reprise his role as the chairman of the Joint Intelligence Committee. Also starring will be David Harewood, Jennifer Ehle, Tuppence Middleton and Elyes Gabel.

Spooks: The Greater Good was shot earlier this year and will hit UK cinemas on 8th May 2015. Let us know if you plan on seeing this by commenting below!
