True Blood

Governor Truman Burrell

Played by: Arliss Howard
Occupation: Governor of Louisiana
Species: Human

Who is Truman Burrell?

Truman Burrell is the current Governor of Louisiana, and is determined to lead the humans in an all-out war against the vampires to “take the streets back.” He has a personal stake in the matter, too, as his wife ran off with a vampire years ago, leaving him to raise his daughter, Willa (Amelia Rose Blaire), alone.

In addition to being emotionally opposed to vampires running around his state, Burrell’s political aspirations will likely cloud his judgement and cause him to do terrible things in the name of justice. Another detail frustrating the Gov: despite teaching her about vampires and their evil ways, daughter Willa is a sympathizer of the fanged ones. Oops!

What’s does Governor Truman Burell’s arrival mean for True Blood Season 6? Join us all season long right here at Wetpaint for all the latest True Blood spoilers, news, gossip and more!
