Introducing Nora (And New Eric Image)

TV Guide’s William Keck has kept his word to True Blood fans today and released a new image of Eric and Bill from Season 5. And not only that, but the image also includes Eric’s vampire sibling Nora.

 TV Guide also has a brief interview with the lucky actress, Lucy Griffiths, about her new role in the show.

When True Blood  premieres June 10, we’ll get a taste of Eric Northman’s bloodsucking, Godric-made vampire sister, Nora (Lucy Griffiths). “She’s an irreverent British lady who we think was turned during Elizabethan or Victorian times,” Lucy reveals. “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.”

Nora is also part of the Vampire Authority ruling council, which will play a big part in the new season. In this exclusive photo from the premiere, Nora, Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) and Bill (Stephen Moyer) are on the attack. “It occurs just after I’ve met them, and it’s a reaction to being taken by surprise by some threatening characters,” teases the beautiful Brit, best known for playing Marian in the 2006-09 Robin Hood series.

Eight episodes into filming, there’s no great Bon Temps romance for Nora, but Lucy has her eye on another new series regular: Italian actress Valentina Cervi, who plays ancient vampire seductress Salome: “They’re very close.”

It may be a brief interview but Lucy does provide us with some tasty little snippets to wet our appetites. A love / hate relationship with her big brother sounds juicy, and hopefully means lots of opportunity for some great viking moments to come. Some worried Eric and Sookie fans will be pleased to note that Nora is  not having any great romance, and it’s also interesting to note that she and Salome are very close (Will Salome also be an Authority member perhaps?). We are seriously starting to look forward to seeing these two new female vamps and the impact they might have in the upcoming season.

Of course, they’ll have their work cut out to outclass this guy, who quite honestly could not get any hotter if you put him in an oven and baked him on maximum temperature for 3 hours and 30 minutes.

Let us know below what you think about what Lucy had to say, or just feel free to drool over our favorite viking!

  1. That jacket that Eric’s wearing is showing some wear on it.
    It’s seen better days!!! also Eric looks really “mean” like he’s really mad .

  2. i’m thrilled! that hopefully will play in eric and bill’s favor since they killed destroyed nan and the other guards lol.

  3. well so Nora is not going to hook up with Eric… still angray about the eric pam promo, hat that the writers destroy their relationship… don’t want to see Eric being all buddy with Bill..:(

  4. Love BAMF Eric!!
    All their clothes look tattered like they were just fighting or something.
    Bring on the Viking!

  5. whoa whats got eric miffed?

  6. Thanks for the credits! :)
    Well things are getting interesting now….
    So the kiss we saw was probably a heat of the moment? (i could add some kinky stuff to this knowing how Mr Northman rolls :lol: ). So much for Eric forgetting about Sookie a la Bill uh? ;)
    Bring it on.

    • Funny how some people thought Eric had already moved on…? I never doubted it for a minute. Besides anything he does is on the rebound. Eric is not the kind of man who sits at home crying bloody tears over a woman.

  7. As long as she’s not fucking up Eric/Sookie…idrgaf….^.^ looking forward to her character though…

  8. Love the new pic and how Eric towers over them! It made me laugh too looking at their faces. Nora is looking in shock with almost a child-like wonder while Bill’s face is looking half afraid….lol. I would not want to mess with Eric and his fangs! That viking looks mighty ticked off!

    I am really curious to see the relationship with Nora & Salome. I too think that any Eric/Nora lovin’ will be rebound or heat-of-the-moment. I just can’t see him moving on that quickly from Sookie and his love for her.

  9. Well I’m guessing Nora’s a lesbian,too,like Pam. Because She said Nora & Salome are really close,it looks like they’ll mite have a lesbian relationship between these two.

    I think Salome will use a sort of spell to pretend to be Sookie in the fiery scene & Eric was thinking it was her which be a trap,but Billy Boy ends up saving him. But Eric got pi**ed off because he didn’t believe he fell for it.

  10. btw,I think he looks really cute. He looks like a pi**ed off alley cat!!!! XD

  11. I cannot wait to see what season 5 has in store, its going to be so good I think

  12. After seeing this, I think that Eric was kissing Salome in that pic awhile back. Didn’t look like a “sisterly” kiss and since Lucy mentioned her and Eric had a love/ hate relationship the way brothers and sisters do, Don’t think it was her. Hope Eric and Pam can fix things between them.. They have such a good relationship, Sad to see them at odds :( Seriously dying for season 5 to get here!
