Giles Matthey to Touch Down on True Blood Season Five

by at . Comments

Giles Matthey has nabbed a recurring role on season five of True Blood.

The actor - whose limited resume includes a stint on an episode of The Good Wife last year - will appear on multiple episodes as Claude, a British fairy described in the Sookie Stackhouse novels as "the nephew of Sookie’s half-human/half-fairy grandfather, Fintan, and cousin to Sookie’s father."

TB Guest Star

Claude is a gay character who - according to the books, again - is a strip club owner that formerly took his clothes off for a living.

True Blood returns this summer with new episodes, though HBO is yet to announce a premiere date.

excited to see him! love claude & claudine in the books (and i'm kinda sad what they made out of her storyline:/) anyway @catriona: nope, claude's dark haired! remember when he asked sook to do the photo shoot with him, because his manager (or what so ever) told him, that we would look good with a blonde in the pictures, cus he's dark haired and tanned;)


Sounds like trouble


Sounds like another boring storyline based on fairies... Sigh...
