WARNING: SPOILER ALERT!
Check out which former True Blood star is returning to the series in its fifth season…AFTER THE JUMP!
Hurray! We knew he wouldn't be staying buried!
Denis O'Hare, who played the villainous vampire king Russell Edgington on True Blood, has revealed that he will be returning to the HBO series when it comes back for its fifth season next summer!
Although there were reports that he'd be coming back sometime during the fourth season, the actor now explains:
"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. 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."
Yes! Yes! Yes!
We've been loving THIS season so far, but knowing that he'll be back only makes us more excited for the seasons to come!
We can't even begin to imagine how CRAZY he's going to be when he's resurrected!
