Mariana Klaveno as Peri Westmore
Actress Mariana Klaveno has made a lasting impression as Lorena, Bill Compton’s “maker” on the award-winning "True Blood" on HBO. Before portraying a seductive and manipulative vampire, Klaveno grew up in rural Washington State on a family-owned and operated farm. After graduating valedictorian of her high school class and earning her BA in Theatre at University of Washington in Seattle, a chance meeting with acclaimed Producer/Director JJ Abrams led to her network television debut in "Alias." However, it wasn’t until her standout guest performance as a modern-day Bonnie Parker on "Standoff" opposite Ron Livingston and Rosemarie DeWitt that people really began to take notice. Additional guest roles soon followed including "ER," "K-Ville," "Hawaii Five-0," "Criminal Minds" and a recurring role on "Dexter." Klaveno has also starred in the telefilms "While the Children Sleep"; "No God, No Master"; and "Innocent."
Peri's burgeoning acting career is giving her everything she ever wanted from life: fame, fortune, influence. But the success is definitely going to Peri's head and she doesn't shy away from making unreasonable demands of her husband, Spence or her nanny, Rosie. Peri doesn't pay much attention to her newborn son (that's what she pays Rosie to do, right?) but seems to have ample time to spend with her handsome co-star "running lines." Although her growing celebrity may get her magazine covers, her growing ego may destroy her marriage.
