True Blood Season 3 Casting News: Meet Claudine

May 11, 2010 by  

British actress Lara Pulver has been cast as the protective guardian for Sookie Stackhouse on HBO‘s True Blood.  This is a recurring role for the character, Claudine, who is actually Sookie‘s fairy godmother.

Lara was recently seen in the BBC-America series, Robin Hood.  In an article on The Ausiello Files, Michael Ausiello said that Ms. Pulver has not read any of Charlaine Harris’ Southern Vampire books, but she is aware that Claudine is a major player in two of them.

In the books, Claudine is sent to be Sookie‘s guardian angel.  Will there be fairy dust in the air?  We’ll have to wait and see how the role plays out in Season 3, which begins on June 13th.
