SPOTTED: Top Chef Canada host Thea Andrews on two shows that are decidedly non-foodie (unless you’re a vampire)

Top Chef Canada junkies experiencing withdrawal during the inter-season hiatus have been able to get their fix of season one host Thea Andrews all over the dial of late, with the former sportscaster and Entertainment Tonight correspondent popping up on scripted shows (which we expect to see more of, since the show is slated to get a new host next season). A couple weeks ago, she appeared on an episode of the Doctor Who spinoff Torchwood: Miracle Day as one of the show’s many cable anchors:

And just on Sunday, she had a plausible turn on True Blood as a local TV host named yes, Thea Andrews, who gets glamoured (i.e., vampire-hypnotized) by everyone’s favourite blood-sucking southern gentleman, vampire Bill Compton:

We guess once you’ve been a real TV host, it’s pretty easy to play one on TV.
