Ashley Jones' New HBO Role

Don't forget to catch Ashley Jones (Bridget, The Bold and the Beautiful) this season on True Blood. Jones plays waitress Daphne in the hit HBO series about vampires in the Deep South, and she's sporting some scary-looking scars for the role.

So does this mean that Jones will be leaving daytime after getting this kind of exposure? She told Michael Logan from TV Guide that she has no plans to, that she doesn't want anyone else to play Bridget. (FYI: The talented Jones got her start in daytime as Megan on The Young and the Restless.) We'd love to see her continue playing Bridget on B&B, but if more juicy roles like Daphne come her way, we'll be her biggest cheerleaders.

True Blood is on Sunday nights on HBO at 9 p.m.
