'True Blood' Season 4: Meet the New Female Characters
Portia Bellefleur (Courtney Ford): The decidedly more attractive Bellefleur sibling, Sheriff Andy's sis is a tough negotiator for the mysterious entity who bought Sookie's home -- surprise, it's total perv Eric! Ford is no stranger to fang-tastic shows, by the way: She guest-starred on the CW's "The Vampire Diaries" last season.
Katerina Pelham (Alexandra Breckenridge): Played by a funny actress best known for her voice work on "Family Guy," Katerina appears to be a double-dealing wicca enthusiast/undercover spy serving Bill (aka the new Vampire King of Lousiana). You know those cute librarian glasses are going to get smacked off her face at some point -- but when?
Naomi (Vedette Lim): The former "As the World Turns" actress Lim plays a woman who mixes it up in underground cage matches for money -- and in bed with Tara (now a lesbian going by the name Toni) for love.
Luna Garza (Janina Gavankar): The sultry Gavankar plays Luna, a schoolteacher who Sam meets through his shapeshifter support group. The first session ends with the four slightly loaded attendees morphing into horses and galloping into the woods like excited morons.
Queen Mab (Rebecca Wisocky): A mythical being described in "Romeo and Juliet," Queen Mab isn't quite what she seems. Early in the premiere, her true intentions are revealed after Sookie spurns her drug-laced light fruit: She plans to harvest humans. Yum!
Marnie Stonebrook (Fiona Shaw): A mousy palm reader and wicca dabbler, she gets possessed by a powerful witch and will be Season 4's arch-villain. Her strong attachment to a dead pet bird only hints at the creepiness to come.
