The one and only Michelle Forbes
I actually missed the first season of "True Blood." Therefore, I'm not an original diehard who was enthralled with the Sookie, Bill and Eric love triangle. Instead, it was Michelle Forbes delicious with a wink performance as evil immortal Maryann Forrester that won me over after I randomly caught an episode of season two. Forbes stood out because she seemed to be the only actor on the show who could convey how ridiculous the entire scenario was (Kristin Bauer van Straten basically took on that role after Forbes left). She was over the top and hilarious while still making Maryann one scary [expletive] (sorry Tara's voice jumped in there for a second). Sadly, the show was never the same without her.
