Yes, more casting news for season 6! Below the Read More.
According to Watch with Kristin on E! Online:
Season six will introduce us to several new characters, including Ben, a new series regular, a low-key Southern guy who will be getting close to Sookie. However, this charming and handsome dude’s dark side is, like, super dark. We’ll also meet the governor of Texas, a Rick Perry-type who is a warmonger, and his daughter, who is pretty and originally comes off as fearful, but will prove to be quite tough. Both will recur throughout the season.
My thoughts: Hmmmm…so, if the governor of Texas is a warmonger, we have to assume he is a warmonger against vamps. Will Billith be declaring war on humans? And his pretty but originally fearful daughter who turns out to be tough…is she going to end up fighting on the side of the vamps who don’t want war with humans? Maybe Eric runs to Texas for help from the remaining Dallas vamps like Isabelle, counting on their help because of his relationship with Godric.
