True Blood’s Deborah Ann Woll Signed To Co-Star In Little Murder

August 31, 2009 by  

trueblood_jessica3Deborah Ann Woll, who portrays the young, newly made baby vamp, Jessica Hamby is finding plenty of work during her hiatus from Alan Ball’s hit True Blood.  We were first introduced to Jessica at the end of season one when Bill’s (Stephen Moyer) punishment was to create a new immortal life given that he robbed Long Shadow of his immortality. Truth be told, I wasn’t sure how I felt about the newly made vampire. My first instinct was, “Oh no,  she is going to come between Sookie and Bill‘s relationship!”, but as time progressed and she slowly matured into her role, I find her to be quite refreshing and one of the funniest characters on the show. Not only is Deborah talented, but also a natural beauty. I hope she continues to grow as Jessica and I look forward to her interacting with more of the cast. It would be wonderful to see her interact with Pam, who is brilliantly played by Kristin Bauer, or perhaps Nelsan Ellis‘ Lafayette since they offer so much comic relief as well.

While True Blood does not start filming season three until December, Deborah will be working on another project entitled “Little Murder” written by Gerald DiPego (The Forgotten) and Justin DiPego. The film will be directed by Peter Antonijevic and centers around a post-Katrina Louisiana police detective who is trying to find the killer of a beautiful cellist with the aid of the murdered girl’s ghost. Starring along with Deborah will be Josh Lucas, Lake Bell and Terrence Howard. The film is set to be released sometime in 2010. In the meantime, don’t miss Jessica and the cast of True Blood in the season finale of season two, on Sunday night at 9 p.m. on HBO! I know we are all anxiously awaiting the fate of so many of our favorite towns people and vampires from Bon Temps.
