Jurnee-Smollett-Bell is rarin' to join the land of vampires, werewolves, faeries, and whatever maenads are. In a video with The Huffington Post, the Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor star talks about being super-excited for her True Blood role.

“My character, Nicole, is a young woman — she’s an activist who comes to Louisiana to help with ‘the cause,’” Jurnee teases. “I can’t say too much, but there’s some animals and some biting involved.”

The character has also been described as a “twentysomething girl who couldn’t care less about owning material goods and whose only cares in the world are altruism and justice.”

In the clip, Jurnee also talks about her time reuniting with Cosby co-star Phylicia Rashad on the short-lived NBC drama Do No Harm.
