Todd Lowe Talks About Terry Bellefleur’s Death in True Blood Season 6

July 25, 2013

Now That the Dust Has Settled, Let’s See What Todd Lowe Has to Say:

Arlene Fowler (Carrie Preston) comforts Terry Bellefleur (Todd Lowe) in HBO's True Blood Season 6 Episode 6, entitled 'Don't You Feel Me?'We all knew it was coming; that big awful death of a True Blood character. And while many people are now saying that HBO played it safe with killing off a long time character, rather than a major character (it was no red wedding after all), it was still a tragic moment.

It’s been a few days now, we’ve had some time to reflect and take in the whole scenario surrounding the self-ordered hit, the glamor and the ultimate tragedy of Terry Bellefleur (played by Todd Lowe) dying not long after he was freed from this inner demons. Now lets hear what the actor himself had to say about it all.

Firstly, let’s start with that round table read – the one where everyone started crying:

Yeah. We were on location on this ranch in Malibu, and we were all crammed in this lunch truck, and we got to that scene, and we played it out, and there was about five minutes of applause afterwards. It was the biggest ovation I’d ever gotten in my life. Even thinking about it now, it tears me up.

Lowe found out about his demise at the start of this year, with Brian Buckner taking him aside and assuring the actor that it wasn’t because of anything Lowe had done, it was just time to shake up things. This also ties in with the fact that Buckner wants to streamline the story lines in True Blood Season 6 and beyond.

Many people have wondered why someone didn’t come up with the idea of glamoring Terry earlier on in the show, since he really only had a scene or two of being happy Terry before he died. Personally, this is what makes it more tragic. He was happy, he was ‘fixed’, yet he had no idea he needed to let Justin know the hit was off. When asked if vampires would make good therapists (being able to glamor the pain away and all), Lowe had this caution:

It’s a philosophical discussion. It seems kind of unethical, because if they erase part of your brain, it takes away a bit of your personality.

When it came to filming Terry’s demise, Todd Lowe had many reasons for finding the death scene challenging:

It was tough. I had an injury. I had injured my rotator cuff and I couldn’t really move my right arm too well. So I was in actual physical pain while having to do all this emotional pain. So I think it kind of helped.

Although, he was quick to add that Carrie Preston (who plays his wife, Arlene Fowler), was the one who really suffered through the scenes, all he had to do was lie there and play dead while Arlene was left having to deal with the untimely death of her spouse.

Speaking of, there are plenty of people in Bon Temps who are close to Terry Bellefleur: friends, colleagues, relatives. How will they be affected? It seems that Terry’s death will cause a ripple effect throughout Bon Temps. Lowe even suggesting this is why Terry died the way he did:

They’re going to have to deal with the funeral, and that’s a good plot device to bring people back to Bon Temps. And then if everybody is congregated in Bon Temps, hmm… what could happen?

So what happens when a long term character dies on True Blood? Is there a party, a send off of any type? It turns out there is, and Todd was very happy with his:

They surprised me with a red-velvet armadillo cake because my character has a pet armadillo. I don’t know who the baker was that made it, but it was incredibly realistic-looking. Unappetizing to the eye, but delicious.

HBO lets us see Inside the Episode for True Blood: Season 6 Episode 6

July 24, 2013

So many big moments in this episode” says Howard Deutch (director Episode 6):

R.I.P to True Blood's Terry Bellefleur (played by Todd Lowe)

HBO’s Inside the Episode this week follows the last day of Terry Bellefleur in True Blood Season 6, Episode 6, entitled Don’t You Feel Me? And yes, we know its his last day because of what was set in motion by him in Episode 5. What Daniel Kenneth (writer) and Howard Deutch (director) wanted to do was to make it as ‘normal’ as possible.

We see him die, not with the pain of the war still furrowing his brow, but a loving embrace, a smile, a kiss, and a light heart is how he finishes his time on True Blood

Daniel Kenneth says,

“We wanted to give the audience that feeling of what ‘happy Terry’ is like. Show how much he loved his family, loved Arlene, and ultimately he dies happy”.

Also, Bill shows us in this episode just what he is made of. The writer had this to say,

“What was really fun about that scene was that all of his powers are on display, His skin can’t be penetrated, he can walk in the day, everything he can do is on display in that one scene!”

Deutch, who directed the show said,

“I’ve never directed a scene like that, I’m proud of it, I think it’s terrifying but also woven in there’s a lot of human moments because ultimately these are two people whose children are gone. “

Finally we see Sookie accepting that Warlow is not what she thought he was, the demons of her past have shifted face, and she has confronted them maturely. Things heat up with Ben/Warlow, as Deutch describes,

“It’s kind of like when you’re in the ocean and you feel the undertow, and it’s a riptide. You know you’re not supposed to get near that, but sometimes you can’t help it!”

Call it chemistry or fate, but it’s a new direction that Sookie has to consider, the fairy vampire hybrid that she fears, may be her ultimate reality. In the mean-time, she decides to loose herself to the moment and go with what feels good, and Ben, well, he doesn’t really complain does he!

Anna Paquin from True Blood gives out the lowdown at Comic Con 2013.

July 24, 2013

Sookie tells it like it is in Season 6 of True Blood:


Comic Con 2013 Anna Paquin (Sookie Stackhouse in True Blood Season 6)Access Hollywood was on site at Comic Con 2013 to talk with the stars of the shows. HBO’s True Blood, is always a favourite though and this conversationw with Anna Paquin, one of the original cast who has been in all of the 6 seasons, was quite enlightening!

First questions is usually about the baby body, and how did she get back her figure?!

“Its been an intense year, and I’m very naked on our show, so I had babies over the hiatus so that’s why I don’t look like I had babies over Hiatus.” Anna shrugs.

Anna gets naked alot with the new co-star Rob Kazinsky

“It’s always fun getting new blood, pardon the pun. He’s really wonderful … it’s always fun to have new people to play with.”

Did you have to coach Rob through the nude scenes, because he’s naked a lot!

“Nah, it’s like ripping a band aid off… usually someone in the first week gets their clothes taken away from them and it’s like, welcome to True Blood!

In Season 6 we are seeing a bit of a return to old school True Blood, don’t you think?

“The show has grown and changed and gone from sort of taking on the global issues and the world, and now coming back to the small town and the central aspects of what the show is about… its exciting to be a part of a show that has these sort of phase of storytelling and I’m so excited to still be here.”

And with Season 7 just having been announced, how do you feel?

“Really excited… Especially when you consider I didn’t even know if the pilot was going to be picked up. When I first saw the script I thought either I’m on crack or this is the best thing I’ve ever read!”

When she was asked about the fact that Alexander Skarsgard was not there does that mean anything??

 Anna replied: “I would obviously not be allowed to answer that. ”

Since we know there are going to be deaths in this season, I guess what we, as the audience, want to know is, it going to be shocking, will we need tissues or therapy?!

“We generally make some people angry, some people happy and some people cry. And that’s just pretty much what we go for.”

So at the halfway point of the season, what can we expect to see?

“Daddy dearest wanted to drown me… um, whoops!  Bit of a life changer there…. The last shred of feel good about yourself is gone! The former love of her life is not so awesome right now… more like at the throwing plates at each other’s heads stage, not the lets curl up and have a cuddle stage… she and Eric, are just not going to work right now, there is a lot of love, but it’s wrong place wrong time… with a lot of stuff going on, well, it’s got to be resolved.”

Hoping the resolution comes soon. Waiting sucks! But in the meantime, you can view the video in its entirety below:

Changes for True Blood and Alcide: Joe Manganiello Tells All

July 23, 2013

The Plot Thickens for Joe Manganiello and Alcide Herveaux:

Joe Manganiello as Alcide Herveaux

If you were as excited as we were to hear that Alcide’s (Joe Manganiello) father Jackson Herveaux (Robert Patrick) was going to be a regular character on True Blood during Season 6, you probably also notice that we have yet to see much of him.

Manganiello spoke of this recently at Comic-Con, saying that he’s been off on his own this season and away from the rest of the regulars. There were, however, original plans for much more screen time between Alcide and his father:

“I haven’t really interacted with any of the series regulars … It’s kind of like my own little spin-off. There was more [with me and Robert Patrick], but they changed the storyline and [there’s now all this footage that is not a part of the show].”

The change might have occured due to the recent showrunner shuffle: Marc Hudis was the original showrunner of the season but was replaced halfway by Brian Buckner.

Even with all of the changes, the buff actor assured that the characters will come together by the end of the season.

How so? We’ll just have to tune in to HBO every Sunday at 9 p.m. to see!
