Carrie Preston: True Blood Actress

August 22, 2010

I am sure most of you have heard of True Blood actress Carrie Preston but other than she rocks on the show what do you really know about her. Well I am hear to tell you all about her so keep reading to get the lowdown on Preston which of course includes pictures and video of the red headed beauty.

Carrie Preston

Carrie Preston is True Blood actress who along with her husband Michael Emerson were on hand to watch her costars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer tie the knot last night. Preston and Emerson, who played Ben on ABC’s hit show Lost, have themselves been married for about 12 years.

In terms of a biography here is what we know about the beautiful Georgia born Ms. Preston. Well we know she is one heck of talented lady who has done everything from the stage to big screen films. In fact it was her role in the Broadway production of The Tempest that really got her career going. Although many now know her as Arlene, the sassy waitress on the HBO hit show, I actually remember her best from her days on Lost. However it was her role opposite Felicity Hoffman in TransAmerica that really got my attention. If you haven’t seen her n that movie I highly recommend you do it is so one of her best performances ever. I could go on and on about her list of credits but seriously that is that what IMDB is for right?

Preston knew at a young age that she was destined to be a performer and did everything in her power to make her dream come true, including having her own front yard theater company. That is dedication my friends. She later went on to study at the famed Julliard school.

Carrie Preston is True Blood actress now but she has been lighting up the stage, small screen and big screen for years. In fact here is an interesting little tid bit many of you may not know but Carrie played one of the annoying and crazy southern bridesmaids along side Cameron Diaz and Julia Roberts in Best Friends Wedding. You can picture her now can’t you.

I am a big fan of Preston’s like I said not really from the vampire show cause I don’t watch it but from her work throughout the years. Let me know your thoughts on Carrie?

    She played Ben’s mother on Lost, which was cool and sorta weird at the same time she Ben is played by her real life husband Michael.
