Turn!” Played by the gorgeous Lucy Griffiths, Nora is portrayed in the series as a vampire that was created by Godric during the mid-1600s. Characterized as the sister of Eric Northman, Nora once served as the chancellor of the Vampire Authority and was the only living member of the original council (trueblood.fandom.com). Playing a definitive role throughout the fifth and sixth seasons, Gainesborough later defected from the Sanguinistas but met her ultimate death in the episode, “In the Evening” that appeared in season six. In spite of her relatively short run in the series, Nora was an incredibly powerful vampire (due to her age), giving her a distinct advantage over younger vampires in the show that were weaker and lacking in regard to wisdom and experience. For these reasons, she was an exceptionally powerful individual capable of matching nearly any adversary with ease.

Among her most notable physical features are her B-cup breasts (32B bra size), thin stomach, and wide-spaced hips that provide her with a shapely ”hourglass” figure. And while Nora tends to dress in extremely modest attire throughout the show, a number of nude scenes provide audience members with a full view of her body (leaving nothing to the imagination). When examined alongside her pale skin, flawless skin tone, and light pink lips, it is easy to see why Nora Gainesborough is one of the sexiest True Blood characters of all time!

Following a number of heinous events in her life, Sookie eventually grows up, maintaining a limited amount of Fae powers (due to the diluted nature of her Fae heritage).
