Newcomer Brett Lorenzini has been tapped to play a new character named Troy in the final season.
"True Blood" season 7 casting has begun. Newcomer Brett Lorenzini has become the first actor added to the cast ensemble for the final season of the HBO series. He will play a new character named Troy.
Details of the role are not available yet, but it's reported that he will make appearance in the season premiere set to air in summer 2014. Lorenzini, whose only credit on IMDB is "A Broken Code", has been re-tweeting congratulatory messages from his friends.
More casting reports are expected to come in the next few months leading to the final season premiere. Series regular Stephen Moyer is slated to direct the first episode titled "Jesus Gonna Be Here".
The ten-episode season 7 has "for every vampire, a human; for every human, a vampire" as the theme. It once again examines the relationships between humans and vampires, and by putting all the characters essentially into one story, now it's Bon Temps vs. the world.
