"I'm sorry to break it to you, baby, but you are not my only source for a good time."
―Dawn Green, to Jason Stackhouse[src]

Dawn Green was a waitress on the HBO original series True Blood. Played by American actress Lynn Collins, Dawn made her debut in the series' premiere episode, "Strange Love", in the series' first season. Working at Merlotte's Bar and Grill, she had a sexual history with Jason Stackhouse, and was the second victim of the Bon Temps killer, following Maudette Pickens. Dawn played a recurring role through the same season, and met an untimely demise in the Season 1 episode "Mine". She was seen once more, in a flashback on the episode "You'll Be the Death of Me", at the end of the series' first season.
