in Season 6. Rob Kazinsky, best known for playing Sean on the U.K.'s long-running soap "EastEnders," is joining the cast as a regular in the fang-tastic HBO dramedy.

The British actor has signed on to play Ben, a seductive fairy who helps Sookie and Jason ( Ryan Kwanten) investigate their parents' murders.

Kazinsky could be squaring off against Rutger Hauer, previously announced as a sixth-season baddie -- possibly even Warlow, the vampire implicated in the elder Stackhouses' deaths.

"True Blood" returns to HBO until next summer.
