Fiona Shaw Swings On “True Blood”

On “True Blood” last night (spoiler alert), it was a pleasure to see Fiona Shaw (pictured) get to play a sexy role. This mid-50s star of the London stage usually plays dumpy mums in movies (as in “Harry Potter’). The episode had the perfect amount of skin. It also had tons of humor, courtesy of child-like Eric and Lafayette, and satisfying amounts of sexual tension (Eric and a tempted Sookie on his bed) and foreplay (Alcide and Debbie on the couch). In short, I will now be very hopeful when I see “written by Nancy Oliver” come up in the opening credits.
