VIDEO: Watch the Full Comic Con True Blood Panel

August 31, 2014

HBO Has Released the Full Video of the True Blood Cast at San Diego’s Comic Con 2014:

Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer San Diego Comic Con 2014Considering us truebies have nothing to watch this Sunday, it seems HBO has taken pity on us and released the entire video of the True Blood panel interview from San Diego’s Comic Con 2014. So sit back for the next hour, and get stuck into watching – and reminiscing – about the very last time there will be True Blood panel at Comic Con. Just be warned though, Kristin Bauer van Straten (who plays vampire Pam) is crying as she walks onto stage, so make sure you have the tissues ready! And remember, watching it in hindsight is completely different to previously too because we all know exactly what they are talking about when they hint at upcoming events on True Blood Season 7.

The full panel includes: Nathan Parsons (James), Deborah Ann Woll (Jessica Hamby), Nelsan Ellis (Lafayette Reynolds), Carrie Preston, Arlene Fowler), Chris Bauer (Andy Bellefleur), Anna Camp (Sarah Newlin) Brian Buckner (showrunner), Kristin Bauer van Straten (Pamela Swynford De Beaufort), Rutina Wesley (Tara Thornton), Sam Trammell (Sam Merlotte), Stephen Moyer (Bill Compton) and Anna Paquin (Sookie Stackhouse).

Behind the Scenes Photos From the True Blood Finale

August 31, 2014

See All the Photos for Jessica and Hoyt’s Wedding:

Jessica and Hoyt wedding 20With HBO’s True Blood all dead and buried now, there isn’t much else to do on a Sunday night but sit back and remember the show. Here we have some photos to keep you going for a while, along with a thank you to her fans, Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll) has posted her wedding photos for us to enjoy.

From Jessica’s blog:

Having this blog as a record of my early memories in Bon Temps — it means the world to me. I’ve got one last thing to share before I sign off for good. Pictures from my wedding! Can you believe it? Hoyt and I are married! It all happened so fast but I’m glad we took the leap. It just feels right to be on this journey with him.

You’ve all felt like my family, and even though you couldn’t be there to share the big day with me, I know you were all there in spirit.

By the way, my favorite picture is Hoyt sitting in Bill’s chair looking very “stately.” Perhaps he has a new calling — mayor? I may be overreaching, but I wouldn’t mind being first lady of Bon Temps…

Forever yours,

Jessica Hamby-Fortenberry

As well as these official wedding photos, StephenMoyer.net has also released some images of the behind the scenes look at Jessica and Hoyt’s Wedding, which you can view by clicking here.

Which are your fave pics? Personally, I love the group shot with everyone looking at the camera, except for Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) – wonder what he’s looking at?

Alexander Skarsgard: “I Think How He Ends Fits With How He’s Lived”

August 30, 2014

Alexander Skarsgard Discusses the End of HBO’s True Blood:

Pam and Eric in HBOs True Blood finale Episode 10 entitled Thank YouConsidering how much blood and gore and unhappiness can occur during your average True Blood episode, the finale turned out to be surprising upbeat – in between the aforementioned blood and gore! But, arguably the happiest – and funniest – ending of all went to the crew at Fangtasia. Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) and his progeny, Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten), ended up taking over Mr. Gus’s (Will Yun Lee) company and making their fortune selling New Blood.

But what did Alexander think of his character’s story?

I think how he ends fits with how he’s lived. He’s always had a clear mission and a clear agenda on his mind.

But while he may be happy with how Eric’s story ended, it didn’t mean he was happy with the show ending. With the conclusion of the final scene, Alexander had this to say:

It was unbelievably emotional. That show has been such a huge part of my life. I’ve met some really good friends on that set, and there is no doubt that they will remain close friends forever… The last scene I filmed, I was just trying to take it all in and I started crying.

So it wasn’t just Kristin Bauer van Straten who was crying about the demise of the show then.

VIDEO: True Blood’s Riley Smith Discusses Being the Latecomer

August 30, 2014

Joining HBO’s True Blood Was Like Joining a Family:

Arlene Fowler (Carrie Preston) and Keith (Riley Smith) star in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 7 (entitled 'May Be the Last Time')For newcomer, Riley Smith, joining the cast of HBO’s True Blood was daunting, but the cast welcomed him with open arms – especially Anna Paquin (who plays main character Sookie Stackhouse)!

Riley joined the cast of True Blood for the final season as vampire Keith, a member of James’s (Nathan Parsons) band seen in Episode 1 (entitled Jesus Gonna Be Here) of Season 7. He falls for waitress Arlene Fowler (Carrie Preston) after he saves her life by giving her his blood in order to heal her. Their relationship is hindered right from the start though considering Arlene has never been a vampire advocate as well as the fact she is a Hep-V carrier. In the True Blood finale (Episode 10, entitled Thank You), we see Keith and Arlene seem to have their happily ever after.

In the video interview below, Riley discusses the True Blood family, their fans and plenty more with AfterBuzz TV hosts Kristin Carole and Scott Moore. Riley also discusses his character’s relationship with waitress Arlene and how there possibly wasn’t enough time left to really flesh out their love story. He was also unaware of just how much of a fan favorite Arlene is to the truebies.

Fans of HBO’s True Blood will know author Charlaine Harris as the woman who created Sookie Stackhouse and Bon Temps in her book series, Southern Vampire Mysteries. As of the 30th of August 2014, Charlaine will touch down in London, England to kick off her UK tour for her latest book, Midnight Crossroad (published in March 2014).

Blurb

From Charlaine Harris, the bestselling author who created Sookie Stackhouse the world of Bon Temps, Louisiana, comes a new, darker world – populated by more strangers than friends. But then, that’s how the locals prefer it?

Welcome to Midnight, Texas, a town with many boarded-up windows and few full-time inhabitants, located at the crossing of Witch Light Road and Davy Road. It’s a pretty standard dried-up western town.

There’s a pawnshop (someone lives in the basement and is seen only at night). There’s a diner (people who are just passing through tend not to linger). And there’s new resident Manfred Bernardo, who thinks he’s found the perfect place to work in private (and who has secrets of his own).

Stop at the one traffic light in town, and everything looks normal. Stay awhile, and learn the truth . . .

Charlaine will start her tour with a book signing at Forbidden Planet. Her full schedule is bellow:

As well as the above events, she will be attending the British Fantasy Convention, (Fantasycon 2014, 5 – 7th September, York) as a guest of honor author.

Let us know if you have the opportunity to attend any of these events by commenting below!
