One of the best things about HBO’s True Blood was Rutina Wesley, who delivered one of the show’s most consistently entertaining performances as Tara. Now, Wesley has been cast in Hannibal‘s third season as Reba McClane, the blind love interest of serial killer Francis Dolarhyde (to be played by Richard Armitage). Played by Emily Watson in Red Dragon, the character has a pivotal role in Dolarhyde’s arc, and knowing Bryan Fuller, he’ll have interesting plans for the character when the second half of the third season hits.

The first half will premiere this summer on NBC, and you can check out the first trailer here!
