‘Twilight’ Vampire Joins The Cast Of ‘True Blood’ … As A Vampire
  |  @   |  

Christopher Heyerdahl, who plays the vampire Marcus Volturi in The Twilight Saga franchise, has joined the season 5 cast of HBO’s True Blood, where he will again bear vampiric fangs in a recurring role.

According to EW, Heyerdahl will be taking on the character of Dieter Braun, an ancient and incredibly powerful vampire who plays a significant part in the intelligence of the Authority we’ve heard so much about. Apparently he’s also got a special talent when it comes to torturing people.

The actor is no stranger to the vampire sub-gene as a whole, either. If these two roles weren’t enough, he’s also played a vampire hunter in Blade: Trinity and Nosferatu in an episode of Are You Afraid of the Dark?

Heyerdahl’s other credits include The Chronicles of Riddick, Catwoman, The Invisible, and numerous TV show roles on titles such as Sanctuary, Stargate: Atlantis, Supernatural, and Hell on Wheels, to name a few.

  1. I actually didn’t know he was in Twilight, I always think of him from his roles in Sanctuary and Stargate Atlantis.
