Career[edit]

In 2009, Hyde was cast in the critically acclaimed HBO series True Blood as Godric, a very powerful vampire. Godric was over 2000 years old, the vampire sheriff of Area 9 and maker of Eric Northman and Authority Chancellor Nora Gainesborough which isn't revealed until season 5. Although at one time a very brutal vampire, Godric appears in the series as a supporter of human and vampire interaction and hopes that one day there will be peace between them. His character appears in four episodes in the second season. The character proved to be popular with viewers and with creator Alan Ball. Hyde returned as Godric for season 3, appearing in a flashback in episode two and as a vision of Eric Northman's in episode twelve. Hyde made a brief appearance as Godric in season 4 in the episode "Me & The Devil". He made two appearances in Season 5 as a vision to Eric in the seventh episode "In The Beginning" and again in the tenth episode "Gone,Gone,Gone" as a vision shared by Eric and his sister Nora Gainesborough

[2] Under Gourmet Film, the web comedy series Alla Salute! premiered April 11, 2011, and with English subtitles on April 13, 2011 . Alla Salute! stars Hyde as Patrik and Aleksander Antonijevic as Claudio. At Gourmet Film, they are dedicated to unite Gourmet and Films by creating small and sophisticated films while drinking fine wines and eating extravagant meals, as explained by Hyde.[3]
