One of our favorite dolls Dichen Lachman has landed a new gig. The "Dollhouse" alum will be playing a -- wait for it! -- vampire on Syfy's "Being Human" when it returns in 2012 for its second season. 

Lachman joins the show in the series regular role of Izumi, a centuries-old reclusive vampire "who causes upheaval" when she returns to Boston. 

After leaving behind her many "Dollhouse" personalities (Sierra FTW!), Lachman has guest-starred on "NCIS:LA" and "Hawaii Five-0" and can next be seen in Starz' "Torchwood: Miracle Day," which premieres July 8. 

In January, "Being Human" became the network's most-watched wintertime scripted premiere in six years. Season 2 will go into production shortly in Montreal.. 

The casting news was first reported by Variety.
