An HBO spokesperson has confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that Camilla Luddington has been cast in a recurring role as fairy Claudette.

Sound a bit familiar? That’s because she’s one of fairy Claude’s (Giles Matthey) sisters. Claudette will help fill Sookie in on the world of fairies. In the Sookie Stackhouse novels the series is based on, she and Claude protect Sookie from harm now and then.
