Giles Matthey to Touch Down on True Blood Season Five

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.
