'True Blood' For Forbes
 
<font color=yellow>Michelle Forbes</font>, best-known to <i>Star Trek</i> fans for her role as Ro Laren on <i>Star Trek: The Next Generation</i>, will be appearing in <i>True Blood</i>, HBO's new vampire series.<p>As reported by <A class="link" HREF="http://www.variety.com">Variety</A>, Forbes, most recently seen in another HBO series <i>In Treatment</i>, will be appearing in an unspecified role in <i>True Blood</i>.<p><i>True Blood</i>, based on a series of books by author <font color=yellow>Charlaine Harris</font> and produced by <i>Six Feet Under</i> creator <font color=yellow>Alan Ball</font>, is about the transformation of vampires from "legendary monsters" to "fellow citizens" overnight, due to the invention of synthetic blood by a Japanese scientist.<p>Sookie Stackhouse (<font color=yellow>Anna Paquin</font>), a waitress in the small town of Bon Temps, Louisiana, understands what it is to be an outcast due to her ability to "listen in" on people's thoughts. She is open-minded about the integration of vampires into society, unlike many fellow citizens who remain skeptical of the vampires. <p>According to producer Ball "It's very easy to see them [the vampires] as a metaphor for any disenfranchised, feared minority group struggling for acceptance. On the other hand, they can be seen as a shadowy organization really interested in amassing power and wealth."<p><i>True Blood</i> airs on HBO on Sunday nights at 9 P.M. with repeat episodes appearing during the week on the pay channel. The series premiered last night.<p>To read more, head to the articles located <A class="link" HREF="http://www.variety.com/article/VR1117991798.html?categoryId=28&cs=1">here</A> and <A class="link" HREF="http://www.usatoday.com/life/television/news/2008-09-03-true-blood-hbo_N.htm">here</A>.

The only thing this article lacks is some sort of comment from Forbes along the line of... "They asked me to do it, I pondered it... kinda of thought no, but they said plleease so I thought i'd do it for a while, but not forever because i don't need to do it forever."
