About True Blood: The Complete Series
Thanks to a Japanese scientist’s invention of synthetic blood, vampires have progressed from legendary monsters to fellow citizens overnight. And while humans have been safely removed from the menu, many remain apprehensive about these creatures “coming out of the coffin.” In the small Louisiana town of Bon Temps, local waitress Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) is open-minded about the integration of vampires – particularly when it comes to Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), a handsome 173-year old living up the road. But at the service of Bill’s less virtuous vampire associates, Sookie is drawn into a series of catastrophes that will put their love to the test.

About True Blood: The Complete Seventh Season
This year, a season-opening battle between raging Hep-Vamps and their Bon Temps prey sets the stage for a season-long series of hair-raising denouements for Sookie, Bill, Eric (Alexander Skarsgård), Jason (Ryan Kwanten), Sam (Sam Trammell), Alcide (Joe Manganiello), Tara (Rutina Wesley) and their human/vampire allies and adversaries. As we’ll see, some of True Blood’s most beloved figures will meet cruel fates, while others will cheat death (true and otherwise) to forge happily-ever-after relationships that will leave fans surprised and, ultimately, satisfied. What will happen to your favorite True Blood character?

Anna Camp on Being True Blood’s Sarah Newlin

September 1, 2014

Sarah Got What She Deserved According to Anna Camp:

true-blood-season-7-episode-10-sarah-ericSarah Newlin (played by Anna Camp) was one of those characters truebies seriously loved to hate. Many fans wanted to see her die a hideous death in Season 7 of HBO’s True Blood – Anna Camp included! Surprisingly though, Sarah survived the series, something Anna never expected after all the atrocities she inflicted on the vampires at vamp camp in Season 6.

Considering Sarah Newlin was the kind of person who followed many different belief systems and managed to convince herself she was being righteous rather than sadistic was being a blood donor slave a fate worse than death? Or did she deserve redemption? Anna weighs in on this:

It’s hard to say. Living in the character, I justified everything she did. It’s hard to say when you’re playing someone like that. I mean, yes, I did try to kill all of them in Season 6, so technically I deserved punishment …She was convicted in what she was believing in at the moment. I don’t know if consciously she was trying to get out of trouble when she turned into a Buddhist – but I think she truly, truly believed that she was. On some subconscious level, it’s a way of exonerating herself from all of the guilt that she felt. She’s just this complete narcissist …it’s basically her world and she’s living in it and that’s OK.

While Sarah ended up a captive at the end, there were many scenes during Season 7 that were very demanding physically on the actress. For the scene involving Sarah being thrown around by Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard), Anna had to wear a harness:

We spent three days shooting those scenes and when I saw it in the episode, they cut so much from what we shot. It’s really fascinating. I was exhausted shooting those things at like four in the morning, because they’re all night shoots …It’s definitely not the most comfortable thing. It feels like you have a permanent wedgie for two hours. Even when you’re out of it, it still feels like it’s there.

However, according to Anna, the hardest scene to shoot was actually Sarah’s last scene in the True Blood finale. She had to hold her arms up for so long that she lost the feeling in them!

True Blood: The Stories That Could Have Been

September 1, 2014

Showrunner Brian Buckner and the Cast Discuss the Storylines They Would Have Liked to Explore:

Final scene of HBO's True Blood Season 7With Season 7 dead and gone, truebies are still trying to work out how to fill the hole that was True Blood. Showrunner Brian Buckner and some other cast members seem to agree that perhaps there could have been a little more True Blood on out screens. Recently The Hollywood Reporter got to find out which stories went untold and which storylines the cast would like to have seen explored.

For showrunner Brian Buckner, he would have liked to have seen more of Lafayette Reynolds (Nelsan Ellis):

I think he’s brilliant. I think every time he opens his mouth, something extraordinary comes out, usually that we didn’t write.

However, something Brian has learned as a writer for other TV shows is that once there is true happiness between the couple it is either time to move on or cause a conflict, so he decided to let Nelsan have the happy ending he received rather than try to cram another conflict into Season 7 for the sake of more airtime for Lala.

Joe Manganiello (who played werewolf, Alcide Herveaux), would have liked to see the relationship between Alcide and Emma (Chloe Noelle) developed. He also would have liked the storyline between Alcide and his father, Jackson Herveaux (Robert Patrick) kept. However, because of the show losing Alan Ball and then Mark Hudis in quick succession, some storylines in Season 6 were scrapped:

When you’ve got three showrunners in as many episodes, something’s got to give. That something unfortunately was my storyline. There was a plan to — [Jackson] came back for a reason, it just never happened.

Stephen Moyer (who played vampire Bill Compton) would have liked to see an exploration into why Bill and Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) had bad blood between them. As for newcomer Nathan Parsons, he would have liked some of his own flashbacks:

It would have been fun to go back to the ’70s a bit, to go back to the war going on and this hippie love child standing against it, the draft dodger, and how he paid for it

Karolina Wydra would have liked a bit more backstory for her character Violet as well. She thought this would help soothe the backlash against her character.

Which storyline would you have liked to see the writers of True Blood explore if they had more time? Let us know your thoughts by commenting below!
