Faces to Remember from True Blood

Sam Trammel plays Sam Merlotte

The blonde and mysterious owner of Merlotte’s, where Sookie works, is clearly a favorite of both the fans and the producers, as they keep giving him more and more storyline. His character has gone through quite a few changes and adaptations, and changes the name of his true love almost weekly, but Trammel has managed to keep up with it quite well. Season two finds him in quite a bit of chaos. He and the rest of the town are in continual danger with Maryanne, and the (latest) love of his life turns out to be far different from what she seemed to be. There are not yet many happy endings for this character, but he adds a certain boy-next-door charm to the show.

Actor Sam Trammel has appeared on many, many television shows, but his main work is on Broadway. He received a Tony nomination in 1998. Two movies are in the works for this talented actor: Unshakable (2009), and Shrinking Charlotte, in which he will star opposite Brittany Murphy.

Nelsan Ellis as Lafeyette Reynolds

Easily the funniest character on the show, Lafeyette Reynolds is Tara’s cousin and short order cook at Merlotte’s. Lafayette is rarely the immediate focus of trouble, but always seems to be affecting it somehow. He has run into quite the mess in season two, and is still reeling from the shock of being kidnapped and held prisoner by some very upset vampires. For a character who is primarily comic relief, he has seamlessly transitioned into some very dark drama.

Nelsan Ellis appeared in 2008’s The Express with Rob Brown, and in 2009’s The Soloist with Robert Downey Jr. and Jamie Foxx. He is also an award winning playwright, and had his play “Ugly” produced at Julliard.

Rutina Wesley plays Tara Thornton

Tara Thornton may be the “best friend” role, but she is anything but stereotypical in her interpretation and performance. She is an easy standout, memorable for her cutting wit and staunch loyalty. She has received quite a bit of screen time in both seasons, and has delivered strong performances throughout.

Sam Trammel plays Sam Merlotte

There are no pending projects for Wesley, but she has received nothing but glowing reviews for her role on True Blood.
