Dawn Olivieri on House of LiesDawn Olivieri, who plays Alcide Herveaux’s sister Janice on HBO’s True Blood, can add another TV appearance to her name, playing Monica Talbot on Showtime’s House of Lies. Olivieri describes Monica as “narcissistic, manipulative” and will do just about anything in order to get what she wants. In the first few moments of the pilot episode, Olivieri is lying in bed with ex-husband Marty Kaan, played by Don Cheadle.

On taking off her clothes:

“You don’t wanna be taking your clothes off for any old show. But House of Lies covets that quick wit, that truth, those in-your-face situations… if you’re gonna be naked, it might as well be for a show like this.”

On sharing scenes with Don Cheadle:

“[He is] accommodating, compassionate, open and a genius in subtlety and nuance.”

Be sure to check out Olivieri on House of Lies Sundays at 10 pm on Showtime.
