True Blood’s Michelle Forbes On TV Guide’s Top List

December 23, 2009 by  

Is it any surprise that TV Guide has done a “Best of the Year for Performance” and once again someone’s name from True Blood showed up? Michelle Forbes showed up in the second season as the strange and mysterious friend of Tara, and was tied into alot of the on goings in the second season. Michelle‘s character had so much depth, that it turned into another extended stay, as did Lafayette‘s character. Michelle, as many of you did or didn’t know, played Maryann Forrester. She showed up just as Tara thought she was going to have a meltdown and was all too nice while planting her roots and evil influence among the unknowing residences of Bon Temps. It turned out that later, our suspicions of her being something not so kind were confirmed and that she was in fact a Maenad (servant of Dionysus, the Greek God of Wine) and so complex and diverse her role, that the Battlestar Galactica vet was named number 6 out of 26 choices for this year’s list. With season 3 starting in June, I’m sure we’ll expect to see much more of this type of recognition for a great show like True Blood.
