'True Blood' Adds Actresses Deadline

HBO's vampire drama "True Blood" has added two actresses for its sixth season, reports Deadline.com. Joining the show are Amelia Rose Blaire, who has appeared in "90210," and Jurnee Smollett, who acted on "Friday Night Lights," the story says.

Blaire will play Willa Burrell, the daughter of Louisiana's Gov. Burrell, played by Arliss Howard. The character disagrees with her father over vampire rights, and will appear in a recurring role that could become regular.

Smollett will portray Nicole Wright, a do-gooder, in a regular role.
