Utah actress Lindsay "Crystal Norris" Pulsipher sucks up more opportunities with 'True Blood'

More hometown news !

 It was seeing the movie "Annie" at age 8 that got Utah actor Lindsay Pulsipher dreaming about becoming a star.

Some 20 years later, the former Cottonwood Heights resident has made it in Hollywood -- though she's not belting out another version of "Tomorrow." Instead, she will be surrounded by bloodthirsty vampires in the new season of HBO's hit horror series "True Blood," where she will be a regular cast member for at least nine episodes. The new third season began June 13 on the pay cable network.

But it's not until Sunday's second episode that Pulsipher makes her first appearance as the mysterious Crystal Norris, a woman who becomes the new girlfriend of Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten).

"The writers are really focusing on the relationship between Crystal and Jason," she said from Los Angeles. "Up to this point, he has never settled down, and I think she really knocks him off his feet. They have this magical relationship, and it's brand new for both of them. It's kind of a powerful, explosive relationship."
