The original True Blood - based on The Southern Vampire Mysteries novel series by Charlaine Harris - took place in a world where vampires and humans were able to co-exist because of the invention of a synthetic blood. The show's original story follows the telepathic waitress, Sookie Stackhouse, living her life in Louisiana amongst other supernatural creatures like evil witches, vampires, and werewolves.
Lafayette Reynolds, played by the late Nelsan Ellis, is Merlotte's glamorous fry cook who's ready for anything (and makes awesome food). The actor tragically died in 2017, aged 39, from heart failure as a result of complications associated with alcohol addiction.
The first episode of True Blood brings out the feisty side of Lafayette after a customer thinks Lafayette's burgers are infected with "AIDS". Lafayette decides to share a night with his new flame Jesus (Kevin Alejandro).
When Lafayette's lover Jesus needs to be saved, Lafayette's power is finally released. She then clarified she's "not mad" over the news, "just answering the question that has inundated" her Twitter feed.
