It has been confirmed that a former star of the hit vampire TV series True Blood is set to make a return during season five. Dennis O’Hare has revealed that his character, the vampire king Russell Edgington, will be making a return to the fifth season of the HBO drama.
Dennis, who previously appeared during the third season of True Blood, explained, "It was up in the air. They were definitely bringing me back, it was just a matter of if they wanted to bring me back the last couple episodes [of season four] or bring me back at the beginning [of season five]. So they decided to do it at the beginning of season five."
O’Hare also added, "Obviously characters evolve, and part of the reason [Russell] evolved was they kept making him older and older. We made him this Pagan Celt [and] they are just wild people. They have a very different relationship to everything in terms of nature and in terms of their own belief system. I just love that." True Blood Season four continues on HBO on Sundays.
