Broadway-Goers or Vampire Lovers for Denis O’Hare?

Broadway Fans versus True Blood Fans

Denis O'HareHe was wildly popular as the vampire King of Mississippi on HBO‘s True Blood. Now that the season is over, Denis O’Hare is making his way back to Broadway.

In a article, Denis was asked to compare the fans of True Blood with those of a Broadway production. He said it’s a toss-up.

“Broadway fans have to travel here to see their shows, so they have a level of commitment that’s more than just tuning in every week.”

However, with his successful TV stints, Denis is starting to hear such screams as, ‘Oh my God! You’re the King of Mississippi!’

Denis’ Experience with True Blood Fans

Denis talked about the True Blood fan madness he encountered at Comic-Con in San Diego. While he was amazed at the attendance level of 130,000 people, it was his inter-galactic fans that surprised him – the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

But the question was asked about the return of Russell Edgington in Season 4 of True Blood. Although he was left buried ‘alive’ in concrete, the show’s creator, Alan Ball, doesn’t always keep characters dead and gone. Denis had this response:

“I love the show and really hope I’m back next year,” he said. “It’s a very good atmosphere.”

Guess we’ll have to wait for next season’s spoilers.

    You’ll be back Denis. Your character is too good to keep buried. lol. Am looking forward to it. I’ll be in NYC next weekend. Hopefully, I’ll run into you there.

    • Jaxx, I’m so jealous! If you run into him, please tell him that he’s very loved as Russell by TrueBloodNet! 😉
