The following True Blood spoilers and casting information won't come as a shock to fans of the Sookie Stackhouse novels:
Bill's maker, Lorena, will play a prominent role on season three of this HBO hit. Mariana Klaveno, who plays this character, confirmed the news to MTV. But she won't reveal if Lorena played a role in Bill's kidnapping, which is how this storyline plays out in the books.
"We do spend a good deal of time together in season three," Klaveno said of Lorena and Bill. "I'm hoping that the fans will be a little bit surprised by it, because there will be some new dynamics in our relationship that are new and [have to deal] with that cliffhanger."

The actress also said there would be a bevy of flashbacks this summer. These instances, along with present day drama, will lead to plenty of "turbulence" between Bill and the woman responsible for making him a vampire.
"I think you can definitely expect much more turbulence between them," she said. "But it's not out of the realm of possibility for them to see each other in new ways. I don't know if they'll ever be at peace with each other, but there might be some real heartfelt connection."
In closing, Klaveno teased: "You'll see some sides of Lorena that will surprise you. She'll be in certain situations where you think she'll do something, and she will not [do what you expect]."
It all begins again on June 13. We can't wait.
