Born in 1986 in Brighton, England, Lucy Ursula Griffiths is one of the latest additions to the cast of True Blood, playing Eric Northman’s vampire “sister”, Nora Gainsborough.
This dark-haired British beauty started her career by performing in musical concerts and plays, getting noticed by an agent when she was just 16 years old. After a couple of smaller roles in television shows, Griffiths landed the part of a headstrong Marion on Robin Hood from 2006 to 2009. Her portrayal of the beloved Arthurian character was so popular that devoted fans were outraged when her character left the show.
After appearing in the ensemble mini-series Collision in 2009, Lucy Griffiths wowed viewers again in the two-part televised drama The Little House as Ruth, a young woman being psychologically tormented by her own mother-in-law.
Lucy has recently acted in a few feature films, including the newly released action film The Numbers Station with John Cusak and Malin Ackerman. She also has a starring role in the just-wrapped Uncanny, a sci-fi thriller directed by Matthew Leutwyler.
We’ve no doubt Lucy’s face will soon be ubiquitous across theater screens in the U.S., but for now we’re happy she’s steaming up our televisions with Alexander Skarsgard on True Blood Season 6.
