Every time a new season of True Blood starts, fans can always expect a host of new faces in Bon Temps. Today, British actor Robert Kazinsky has signed on for series regular role in Season 6 as a new love interest for Sookie (Anna Paquin).

The actor will portray Ben, a faerie who helps Sookie and Jason (Ryan Kwanten) explore the mystery behind their parents' murder. It seems that Bill (Stephen Moyer) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) have some competition for Sookie's heart. I wonder how well they will take the arrival of this new potential paramour.

Robert Kazinsky is the second major addition to the cast, after we reported last month that Rutger Hauer has signed on to play Macklyn, a shifty character with ties to both Sookie and Jason.

Robert Kazinsky is best known for his three-year stint on the British series EastEnders. He also starred in a two-episode arc of Brothers & Sisters in 2011, and in Anthony Hemingway's film Red Tails.

True Blood Season 6 will debut in June on HBO, although the network hasn't issued a specific premiere date yet.
