Christopher Heyerdahl Joins True Blood Season 5


A slice of True Blood casting news for you this morning.  Christopher Heyerdahl is joining the show’s fifth season.  The actor is going to play a vampire, familiar territory for him because he recently played a bloodsucker in the Twilight films as the Volturi named Marcus (that might mean something to some of you). 

In True Blood, Heyerdahl is taking a recurring role as “Dieter Braun, an ancient, powerful vampire who plays a large part in the intelligence of the Authority and especially enjoys enhanced interrogation,” says Deadline.

The actor also appears in Hell on Wheels, Caprica and Supernatural.

True Blood season 5 begins June 24.
