Twilight Vampire Becomes True Blood Vampire
Sanctuary’s Big Guy Christopher Heyerdahl will join the HBO show for season five
Christopher Heyerdahl, best known for two roles in Syfy’s Sanctuary (Big Guy and John Druitt) as well as being elder Vampire Marcus in The Twilight Saga films, is joining True Blood for its fifth season, reports Deadline.
Heyerdahl will play Dieter Braun, described in recent a casting call as, “40s to 50s. Mature and self-possessed, calm and authoritative, with a piercing gaze, this vampire of average build is nevertheless extremely intimidating, and he uses innovative methods to torture a prisoner during an interrogation…”
This would appear to be another piece of evidence that Sanctuary has been quietly put to sleep. Although Syfy has made no official announcement that the show has been axed, neither has there been any news that a fifth season is going into production, which would be expected by now.
