About Nicole Wright on True Blood (2013-2014)
In case anyone who was a fan of True Blood kind of missed Jurnee's character's name (Nicole Wright) because the final season was an absolute mess, some of us do remember her as the gal that became Sam Merlotte's 'the one.' The series was a big metaphorical ball about acceptance and resistance, so naturally, Nicole steps in as a human ally supernatural folks like Sam didn't ask for. But her sweet optimism and stubbornness wins Sam over. And it didn't hurt that she is beautiful and balances his volatile nature. I thought it quaint when the show ended with their relationship strong and in tact.
Of course, Jurnee has always been bright and extremely talented. She gave an award-winning performance as Eve Batiste in Eve's Bayou (1997).
