February 3, 2010 by  

There’s a new True Blood casting call. This time, the casting is for Episode 5 of Season 3, which is entitled Trouble, and calls for 4 guest roles, including Eric Northman‘s parents Ulfrick and Astrid. The other two roles are for a Wolf Pack Leader and a church girl with a crush on Hoyt Fortenberry. Here are the details for these characters:

In a flashback scene set in 900 A.D., we meet Ulfrick, Eric‘s (Alexander Skarsgård) father.  Ulfrick is a Swedish Viking king in his 40s to 50s who has seen many battles as evident by his battle scars.  Despite his position he is described as being warm and has a  good relationship with Eric however, there is some tension between the two of them because Ulfrick wants Eric to learn responsibility and behave in a manner befitting royalty.  The casting call is for a guest star to portray Ulfrick.

In the same flashback scene set in 900 A.D. we also meet Astrid, a Swedish Viking queen in her 30s with a new baby and is Eric‘s mother. This casting call is also for a guest star to portray Astrid.

Another guest star casting call, this time for Colonel John Flood who is described as the Wolf Pack Leader in his 50s to 60s who is self-assured, and dressed like a golfer with a military haircut.  Apparently he doesn’t react the way Sookie and Alcide expect to recent events.

It seems Jessica better watch out or someone is going to take Hoyt away from her.  In the latest casting call a young girl in her 20s from Hoyt‘s church is attracted to him in a chaste way.  Summer is described as super positive and a nice girl.

Sounds like True Blood‘s new guest characters are going to be giving us some new insight into a few of our favorite characters! Which of these four do you think will make the biggest impression on fans and do you have anyone in mind to play any of these characters?
