Michelle Forbes open to True Blood return
Michelle Forbes has said she’d welcome the chance to return to HBO’s vampire drama True Blood but doubts any such return will happen following her characters demise in the season two finale.
Forbes played the villainous Maenad Maryann in the latter half of True Blood’s first series and was the “big bad” for the second series. Maryann wrecked havoc upon the residents of Bom Temp as she corrupted them; turning them into her slaves effectively. However, Maryann was killed off in the series two finale which may make any return to the drama for the actress a little hard.
“I just had the time of my life. I would carry a spear in the back of one of the scenes on that show. I love them all so much… I would take a bullet for [creator] Alan Ball. I do unfortunately think that Maryann’s story was told and was told in full, and [since then they] have gone on to so many rich wonderful stories. I don’t think there’s any hope of my popping back up. I might have to twist Alan’s arm, though, to throw me in the back of some scene for two minutes, just to go hang out with him again.” – Michelle Forbes speaking to TV Line
