Bill-Compton-black-shirtMore casting news for season 3 of True Blood.  This time Michael Ausiello from is reporting that Shannon Welles (Roger Sterling’s Mad Men mama) has signed on to guest star in an early season 3 episode as a mysterious old woman who lives in the middle of nowhere.  Now as I recall in previous casting calls this mysterious old woman who lives in the middle of nowhere may be the woman named Olivia in casting calls that Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) is to encounter who she mistakenly believes to be her son.  Now with Bill being kidnapped, will this be an actual scene that he experiences or a flashback scene that he will remember while being tortured.  Either way all these casting news reports this past week is definitely building the frenzy and anticipation of the return of season 3 of True Blood.

    Totally agree with you Nia! I hope AB does a much better job than CH in telling Bill’s story!

    Stephen is such a great actor – he deserves to show the world what he is made of and to be nominated for awards in 2010. I’m afraid AB and the Writers did not do him justice this year!

    Keep it coming everyone!
    With all the casting news, spoilers and teasers, our pulses are racing for the next season to start.
    Cannot wait, especially for this intriguing story line for Bill. Because of the books being so weak in this area, Alan B has a clean slate to work off of. I hope he makes it a great story. With Stephens vast acting talent, I am sure it is going to be amazing.
