Vampires are all the rage these days. You got your Twilight movies, Vampire Weekend on the iPod... Okay, okay, those guys aren't vampires. But you get the idea.
And then, there's the vampire drama 'True Blood'. It's become such a hit, it's now the most watched series on HBO since 'The Sopranos'.
The show takes place in fictional Bon Temps in the deep south - at a time when people and vampires co-exist, and they're often at each other's throats... unless something 'else' gets in their way.
Cue Michelle Forbes. You might remember her from 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' or '24'. But on 'True Blood' she plays Maryann, a mysterious maenad seeking revenge, wreaking havoc, and hosting the wildest zombie orgies ever seen on TV.
