Best known for playing Tara Thornton on [True Blood](series:200767) for seven seasons, Rutina Wesley has now joined the cast of Hannibal for it's upcoming third season.
Wesley is set to play Reba McClane, a blind woman who enters into a relationship with the psychotic Francis Dolarhyde (the recently cast, Richard Armitage) and helps soothe his murderous urges.
Reba McClane has previously appeared on screen twice already ; played by Joan Allen in Manhunter and then by Emily Watson in Red Dragon.
Hugh Dancy's Will Graham will met Dolarhyde from around the eighth episode of the third season of [Hannibal](series:721010).
No word, as of yet, on how many episodes Wesley will be in or the date of her first appearance.
