Evan Returns to HBO in a New Mini-Series

Evan Rachel WoodThe lovely and talented Evan Rachel Wood has made Vampire Queen Sophie Anne Leclerq a character to watch on True Blood. While we must wait until June to see what happened to our beloved queen, Evan will be returning to HBO in the miniseries Mildred Pierce which begins in March. She will play Vida Pierce, daughter of the title character Mildred Pierce, played by Oscar winner Kate Winslet. The series is a “re-imagining” of the original 1945 movie which starred Joan Crawford in the title role.

If you can’t seem to get enough of Wood as Sophie Anne, just wait until you see Mildred Pierce. Referred to as one of the most detestible characters of all time, Vida is a talented singer whose mother will give anything and sacrifices everything to assure her daughter a place in society. The mini-series is set in the 1920s and will give Wood the opportunity to showcase her beautiful singing voice not to mention her fantastic acting chops.

Although there is still very limited information about the project available, a trailer has been released on YouTube and a teaser has been posted at HBO.com. The trailer which I’ve posted below depicts Evan Rachel Wood’s character as a very beautiful and extremely talented singer who does not care what her mother has to do in order to keep her in the spotlight. Even if it means marrying someone she doesn’t love.

I know I’m looking forward to seeing Evan Rachel Wood take on Vida. How about you?
