Brendan McCarthy is an American actor who plays the role of Nate on the HBO original series True Blood. Making his debut on the episode "Cold Grey Light of Dawn" in the series' fourth season, Brendan plays the role of a werewolf in the pack from Shreveport, Louisiana. A loyal supporter to his packmaster, Marcus Bozeman, Nate hoped to become an Alpha Male when Marcus died. He is led astray, however, by his new packmaster, JD Carson, who is working for vampire Russell Edgington in exchange for his blood. Playing a recurring role through the series' fourth and fifth seasons, Brendan is a co-starring actor who is killed fighting the vampire Bill Compton on Russell's behalf, and meets an untimely demise in the Season 5 episode "Hopeless".
