'True Blood' Actress Heads to USA's 'Graceland' (Exclusive)
A True Blood actress has lined up a new gig.
Jamie Gray Hyder, who played werewolf Danielle on the fifth and sixth seasons of HBO's vampire drama, has joined USA's Graceland in a recurring role, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.
The actress has been cast as the sexy and formidable Lucia Solano. While her brother Carlito (Erik Valdez) runs the cartel stateside, Lucia tries to live a more traditional life by going to grad school. However, she can't avoid playing the role of leash to Carlito's pitbull and she works overtime to make sure he doesn't destroy everything her father built. She's also skeptical of Tuturro (Manny Montana) and his attempts to get close to her brother.
She joins Haven star Emily Rose, who also appears in multiple episodes as an ally to Mike (Aaron Tveit).
Hyder is repped by Momentum and LA Management. She guest starred on Sons of Tucson and starred in the Killzone: Shadow Fall video game, as well as John Mayer's "Heartbreak Warfare" video.
Graceland returns for season two in the summer.
