Amelia Rose Blaire and Jurnee Smollett are the latest in a long line of “True Blood” turnover. Blaire is set to play Willa Burrell, the daughter of Truman Burrell (Arliss Howard), Governor of Louisiana. Smollett meanwhile will play Nicole Wright, a bit of a do-gooder.
Blaire has previously worked on “90210″, in which she played Laura Mathison, she’s also made appearances in a multitude of other series, including “Grimm”, “Drop Dead Diva” and “The Glades”. Smollett was most recently seen in “The Mob Doctor”, though she’s probably more famous for her roles in “Friday Night Lights” and “The Defenders”.
