HBO’s True Blood has returned, and with it the host of beautiful women who make the show what it is. That includes Janina Gavankar, who reprises her role this season as a shapeshifter with dangerous romantic tastes. Edgy, no? We look forward to seeing what Gavankar has to offer in the coming episodes, but for now here’s a bio-gallery to hold you over until Sunday.
Gavankar is of Dutch and Indian descent.
She acted in stage productions before getting her start in film and television.
Gavankar found success in 2007 when she was cast in a regular role on Showtime’s dramatic series The L Word.
She’s no stranger to comedy, either, and makes occasional appearances on FX’s The League, as well as acting in Funny or Die shorts.
Gavankar claims to be the first actress to use Twitter, having signed up for the service at Richard Branson’s urging back in 2006.
A self-declared gamer, Gavankar has appeared on and co-hosted G4 TV’s Attack of the Show!. Suffice it to say, we’d definitely start a multi-player Halo campaign with her.
