Season 5 of HBO's insanely-addictive, supernatural soap True Blood is almost upon us. As if finding out whether or not Sookie (Anna Paquin) makes good on her pact to stay away from both Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) and Bill (Stephen Moyer), not to mention the fate of poor, shot-through-the-head Tara (Rutina Wesley) wasn't enough to have us tuning in this summer, the series will also boast an arc featuring one of our favorite daytime soapers, Carolyn Hennesy!
The General Hospital scene stealer and frequent Cougar Town guest will appear this season as Rosalyn Harris, a member of the all-powerful Vampire Authority, who will be investigating Eric and Bill's Season 4 actions when the serial picks back up on June 10. Hennesy gave a preview of her stint to our pal's over at Zap2it.
On her new character, she revealed:
"She's very old, as vampires go. And as for where she came from originally is yet to be determined, I would say. For the last, let's say two or three hundred years, she's called the Southwest home. Particularly Texas. Roslyn is one of those great dames, great broads who helped to settle the old West, so she's as comfortable in a salon as she is in an opera house. Pearls with everything, the hair can never be too high and a shot of whiskey will just make her day."
Concerning which vampire, werewolf, male witch and/or shapeshifter she's rooting for:
"To be honest, I'm Team Every Male on That Show! There is no one on who's team I'm not. I'm Team Alcide (Joe Manganiello). I'm Team Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis). I'm Team Everybody. And after meeting the two of them, I wouldn't choose teams if you shot me through with silver. They are just princes among men."
