Viewers of the racy vampire series love to hate ‘Lorena,’ the crazy love sick vampire, but the actress who portrays her has only good news to share lately. Mariana Klaveno, who has been dating Louis Patino for about three years, recently announced her engagement via Twitter. Although Patino, who is a producer on True Blood, was not named specifically by Klaveno, she took to her Twitter account to post “Sorry I’ve been out of touch for a few days. I’ve been busy getting engaged!”
This news comes on the heels of Joe Manganiello’s own engagement announcement to his girlfriend, model Audra Marie. Manganiello, who was also featured on the series One Tree Hill, joined the cast this past season as the kind hearted werewolf ‘Alcide’, and instantly became the latest Hollywood heart throb. But it took more than that to get Marie’s attention, according to Manganiello. He recently told People magazine that it wasn’t exactly love at first sight for her when they met at a 2009 Super Bowl party; she refused to go out with him.
It reportedly took six months of convincing, but he got that date, and eventually got the girl. The two have yet to announce any plans for the ceremony, but with such a close cast, we can expect to see plenty of True Blood costars when these two exchange wedding rings.
There must be something in the water over at the set of the adult vampire dramedy, because with these two announcements, there has been an engagement for each season the show has been on; three love connections for three seasons on air.
