Talk of talent, she has it; the confidence; exposure and experience is not lacking in her. She is a strong force to be reckoned with today going by the manner she delivers her lines while on set.

She had guest appearances in several other flicks before her long desired and anticipated breakthrough came when she was given the role of ‘vampire Pamela Swynford De Beaufort’ in the HBO series True Blood from 2008 to 2014. The flick ‘once upon a time’ is another window that brought in recognition for Van Straten. She has since gained prominence in the industry.
