"True Blood" casts Lauren Bowles as Holly

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Lauren Bowles, who occasionally appeared as a waitress alongside half-sister Julia Louis-Dreyfus on “Seinfeld,” has landed a key new role on HBO’s “True Blood.”

Bowles will have a recurring role in five episodes of the vampire drama’s upcoming third season, with an option to continue as a regular on Season 4.

She will play Holly, a thirtysomething mother of two who applies for a job at Merlotte’s and creeps out Arlene (Carrie Preston) with her oddly prescient observations. Holly is a major character in the Southern Vampire Mysteries books “True Blood” is based on, in which Holly is a practicing Wiccan and also hooks up with Hoyt, a character played on the show by Jim Parrack.

Bowles’ recent TV gigs include guest spots on ABC’s ”Private Practice“ and CBS’ Cold Case.”
