TV Guide columnist William Keck posted this exclusive photo of Nora, played by newcomer Lucy Griffiths, with Bill and Eric from the season five premiere. According to TV Guide, Nora is a part of the Vampire Authority and
“She’s an irreverent British lady who we think was turned during Elizabethan or Victorian times…It’s been years since she’s seen Eric, and she is very excited. She looks up to him, but they’ve had a fiery love/hate relationship in the way that brothers and sisters do.”
Griffiths also reveals more details about the photo: “It occurs just after I’ve met them, and it’s a reaction to being taken by surprise by some threatening characters.” Despite being eight episodes into filming the season, Griffiths said that there’s no “Bon Temps romance” for her character but she has her eye on Salome, an ancient vampire seductress, who will be played by Italian actress Valentina Cervi. Griffith’s described Nora and Salome’s relationship as: “They’re very close.”
Like always, waiting truly does suck!
