Thanks to the lovely people over at Skarsgard Fans and Bookies <3 True Blood we now have the official casting call for the character of “Sylvie” who is due to appear in Season 7 of True Blood. Check out below, if you feel the need to be spoiled and to know….
original posting 11/19/13 – still looking so repost on 11/22
Episode 7.2 ‘(title:TBA)’
writer: Brian Buckner, director: Lee Rose
to film around mid-january 2014
Woman AKA Sylvie: 20s, beautiful, French. Must be French and speak French fluently. Love interest to Eric (Alexander Skarsgard)… Episode 2 Arc, on the final season of True Blood.
This role requires full frontal nudity excluding genitalia.
So there we have it, the full details taken from the official casting call. I am presuming from this that Sylvie will only appear in one single episode, but I could be reading that wrong, or just being too optimistic!
It’s also interesting that Brian Buckner himself is writing this one. Please don’t stone me but he and Alexander Woo are my favourite writers left working on the show, and the more episodes they write the better I feel about it.
Today I’m breathing a bit of a sigh of relief, hopefully young Sylvie is just a stepping stone on Eric’s journey back to his family who love and need him. And at least whatever else Sylvie ever does, I’m pretty sure she will live on in naked Viking tumblr gifs for a very long time after the episode airs!
