Three Cheers for True Blood Star Anna Paquin’s Upcoming Films!

December 18, 2012

Anna Paquin has Three Films in Production:

 

Anna Paquin stars as Sookie Stackhouse in HBO's True BloodEven when she’s not going between True Blood’s Bill (Stephen Moyer) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) as Sookie Stackhouse or tending to her new twins, actress Anna Paquin always stays busy!

She currently has three films in production: Black Wings Has My Angel, Free Ride, and Straight A’s.

Black Wings Has My Angel is a crime thriller which is written and directed by Alfonso Pineda Ulloa. It is about an ex-convict (The Avengers’s Tom Hiddleston!) who teams up with a Mississppi call girl (Paquin) to assist him with an armored car robbery. With Lord of the Rings’s Elijah Wood also set to co-star, it sounds like one heck of a film!

Free Ride is about a 1970s single mom who attempts to take care of her two girls while being involved in the Florida drug trade. The indie film is written and directed by Shana Sosin, but not only does Paquin star in it, she is also producing! It also co-stars Cam Gigandet and Drea de Matteo (The Sopranos)  and is currently in post-production!

Straight A’s is a comedic drama telling the story of a drug addict who sees his mother’s ghost.

With so many different film genres, Paquin is sure to show off her talent, even if we do miss Sookie!

Doyline is most famously known for being the town where scenes for HBO’s TV show, True Blood, are filmed. The police department have released the following photo of the explosive powder and claim that it will be a time-consuming process.

The explosives are not expected to be fully cleared until Tuesday. Local schools will be shut on Monday and possibly on Tuesday also.

The explosives were discovered after a follow up enquiry to an explosion on October 15th at Camp Minden. It was then that not only the explosives were discovered, but that they were incorrectly stored.

True Blood Cookbook Creator Marcelle Bienvenu Visits Louisiana – VIDEO

December 6, 2012

True Blood: Eats, Drinks, and Bites from Bon Temps Author Talks in Lake Charles, Louisiana

Marcelle Bienvenu recently visited Lake Charles, Louisiana to chat with fans and sign books to introduce her newest cookbook, True Blood: Eats, Drinks, and Bites from Bon Temps.

Having written Who’s Your Mama, Are You Catholic and Can You Make A Roux?,  Cajun Cooking For Beginners, and having a regular food column in the New Orleans Times-Picayune since 1984, Bienvenu was an expert on Louisiana-style cooking. However, when first contacted to make the cookbook, she didn’t know much about the show and all of its supernatural drama.

How to solve the problem? Bienvenu sat down and watched every single episode and took note of every mention of the Louisiana cooking.

Bienvenu knows a lot about food, having cooked with esteemed chefs like Emeril Lagasse, Paul Prudhomme, and Ella Brennan at the Commander’s Palace in New Orleans. She can even tell where a person’s from by their gumbo:

“In Baton Rouge, the roux is lighter,” she said. “Along the coast, they have seafood and on the prairies, it’s chicken and sausage.”

Thanks to her True Blood research, however, the HBO show’s cookbook is now complete with 75 Louisiana-approved recipes with clever names any True Blood fan might recognize. Some of Bienvenu’s favorites include, “Stake and Eggs,” “Tequila Moonrise” and “Wanted: Dead or Alive.”

Having first started cooking as a child, Bienvenu expressed her life-long love for the craft:

“I’ve been eating my way through life since.”
