True Blood’s Carrie Preston Discusses her Experience on True Blood

May 16, 2013

Carrie Preston Reflects on Arlene’s Past and Future:

 

Carrie Preston stars as Arlene Fowler in HBO's True BloodAs well as starring as the fiery Arlene Fowler-Bellefleur on True Blood, actress Carrie Preston keeps her plate full by guest-starring on The Good Wife as well as being featured as her real-life husband’s character’s love interest on Person of Interest.

Of the three popular series, however, Preston has been with True Blood the longest. She spoke of her character saying:

“It is really fun to be able to play a character that I’m so comfortable with; that I’ve been learning about and experiencing for coming up on six years. To see her grow and my understanding of her grow, that has been a wonderful thing.  Plus, it has been such a rare and wonderful thing to have a steady job for this long.  I had never had any television or film gigs that were this long before, so I am obviously very grateful for that.”

She also mentions that her time working on the Season 6 is nearing its end, as they’re approaching readings of the eighth and ninth episodes with 10 episodes in total this season.

Where will season six bring Arlene? Preston teases:

“We’re going to be picking up right where we left off in True Blood fashion.  In my storyline, we’re going to see the ramifications of what Arlene and Terry did when Terry killed Patrick. So we’re going to pick up with that and see how that effects them.”

Reflecting back on the action in Season 5, Preston said the “smoke-monster” action stunned her as much as the audience:

“I had never even heard of an Ifrit, which is the fire monster, so that was definitely the most surprising, as far as my storyline goes.”

In addition to her acting career, Preston also has a production company, where she directs, produces and stars in different films. The latest film under her direction is She Said, now available on iTunes, Netflix and Amazon.

But that’s not all that’s under Preston’s behind-the-scenes belt:

“I shot three episodes of a web series, and when those are all edited together we’re going to start a Kickstarter campaign to shoot the rest of it. Then I’m also starring and co-producing a film that’s going to be shooting in North Carolina called Your Ass is Grass.  So I’ll be doing that as soon as we wrap True Blood. I’ve got a lot of irons on the fire, so to speak.”

We hope you keep them burning, Ms. Preston!

New Art from Season 6 of True Blood – Is This Foreshadowing?

Season Six of True Blood Teased with Key Art Release

Who is Dying on True Blood Season 6?

HBO has released some key art for Season 6 of True Blood that may foreshadow the loss of one (or more) of the characters on the show. On the other hand, even though Alan Ball has left the showrunner position, he is still around and he’s been teasing us for six years now. Sometimes, Alan releases total falsehoods, twisty misleading truths and teasing dual-meaning innuendo. But woven in among all those evil tidbits, Ball has been known to tell just enough of the truth to keep us listening.

What do you think this key art means? Please leave your comments below.
