Fiona Shaw Cast as Next “True Blood” Big Bad

fionashawFiona Shaw and friend

This is AWESOME: Fiona Shaw – whom you might best know for playing Aunt Petunia in the Harry Potter movies or that wonderfully crazy bitch who blows her brains out at the end of The Black Dahlia – has been cast in a pivotal role for True Blood‘s 4th season. Although I don’t know that Shaw has ever spoken on the topic directly, her relationship with bisexual actress Saffron Burrows (Deep Blue Sea) was widely discussed a few years back.

Irish-born Shaw will play Marnie, a timid palm reader who is possessed by a powerful witch (which, if you’ve read the 4th Sookie Stackhouse book, means big things for the season’s main storyline). Shaw excels at playing wonderfully arch, evil characters (remember her in The Butcher Boy?), so this news has my genitals tingling in anticipation.

I love Shaw and love this news – looks like Denis O’Hare‘s spectacular turn as the Big Bad from Season 3 wasn’t the end of an era of queer character actors leading the forces of darkness. I can’t wait for next summer!
