The True Blood Actor Shapeshifts Into a Homicide Detective:
Up until recently, Janina Gavankar starred as shapeshifter Luna Garza in HBO’s True Blood. Howver, she has now joined the cast of NBC’s The Mysteries of Laura which premiered on September 17th 2014. The Mysteries of Laura follows the life of homicide detective Laura Diamond (played by Debra Messing). Janina plays fellow detective, Meredith Bose, a character who is not only is envious of Laura, but also finds her husband, Jake (Josh Lucas), attractive:
We’re going to see why Meredith is like that. … I just know that Meredith has hero worship and hatred at the same time. [Laura’s] just so good, but d***it, Meredith just wants her shine. It sucks to be in the shadow of somebody… Meredith is a very classy lady and would never do anything to be disrespectful in the workplace, but I think she thinks Jake is real cute. [However] a lot of things can happen [on the show] and we don’t know what those are yet.
It seems Meredith may cause complications between Laura and her husband – even though the pair are in the midst of a divorce!
According to IMDb.com, the series synopsis is as follows:
A single mom NYPD homicide detective cracks case after case while raising wild twin boys and locking horns with her less than helpful police detective ex-husband.
