True Blood Season 7: Sarah Newlin to Return in Episode 3

July 3, 2014

Sarah Newlin Will Also Bring Her Family Along!

Anna Camp stars as vicious Sarah Newlin in HBO's True Blood Season 6In HBO’s True Blood Season 6, it seems that the person everyone loved to hate the most was Steve Newlin’s (Michael McMillian) crazy ex-wife, Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp). We saw her nearly lose her life at the hand of her ex-lover, Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten), but, after showing her some remorse, she lived to fight another battle. And it appears this battle will commence in Episode 3 (entitled Fire in the Hole) of True Blood Season 7.

TVLine spilled the beans earlier this week with the following information:

My favorite vampire exterminator is back in this week’s episode. And as we told you back in February, the show will be introducing us to Sarah’s Texas socialite parents and angry, bitter, gothed-out sister at some point this season (perhaps as early as Sunday).

So we get a two for the price of one deal it seems, with Sarah and her sister making appearances in this, the final season of True Blood.

Do you think Sarah Newlin will live or die? Let us know in the comments below!

VIDEO: True Blood Season 7 Premiere #TrueToTheEnd

June 18, 2014

True Blood Cast – Past and Present – Walk the Red Carpet:

True Blood Season 7 Red carpet event Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer #TrueBloodToTheEndWith only a few days to go until the premiere on HBO of True Blood Season 7, fans are in for a much needed treat: the red carpet premiere event! Trubies around the globe are lamenting the fact this will be the VERY LAST red carpet premiere event. But, with this sadness, there is still excitement. While most fans couldn’t attend the event – even from the sidelines – let TrueBloodNet fill you in on what went down!

While many of the cast members including Anna Paquin (Sookie Stackhouse), Stephen Moyer (Bill Compton), Sam Trammell (Sam), Joe Manganiello (Alcide), Rutina Wesley (Tara), Kristin Bauer van Straten (Pam), Deborah Ann Woll (Jessica), Ryan Kwanten (Jason), and Chris Bauer (Andy) turned up at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, a notable exception was – once again – Alexander Skarsgard (Eric Northman). However, this was to be expected. This is not because HBO are keeping him under tight wraps until his story line is resolved (involving that full frontal suntanning incident in True Blood Season 6), but because his is currently in London for the movie, Tarzan.

ExtraTV was on hand during the premiere event and you can watch their video interviews below:

What I found the most interesting with these videos is something Anna Paquin said: while the story line for True Blood Season 7 has been written, scenes are still being shot – so does this mean that things may change still? Only time will tell!

Something else interesting that popped up during the red carpet event was the appearance of Janina Gavankar and Michael MacMillian. Janina’s character, Luna Garza, died in Season 6, so why was she at the Season 7 event? Perhaps Luna will be one of the characters promised to return this season? Michael’s character, Steve Newlin was another character who didn’t survive Season 6, and with his wife, Sarah Newlin (played by Anna Camp), still alive and kicking could there be more to his story line as well?

As well as posing for pictures, many of the cast posed with a placard displaying the hashtag #TrueToTheEnd – do you think True Blood Season 7 will remain true to the end? Let us know in the comments below!

Finally, you can view all the Twitter and Instagram shots taken during the event  by the stars themselves in the photo gallery below.

True Blood’s Sarah Newlin: Villain, Crazy or Prophet of God in Season 7?

September 2, 2013

Anna Camp Talks About Being Sarah Newlin:

Anna Camp stars as Sarah Newlin in HBO's True Blood Season 7Fans of HBO’s True Blood found the emergence of an unexpected villain in Season 7. While Governor Burrell (Arliss Howard) was instantly recognizable as the bad guy, it was the return of Steve Newlin’s (Michael McMillian) wife, Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) that turned out to be the true villain of True Blood Season 7.

Apparently it was a surprise to Anna Camp also!

I had no idea at first. Each script I got was a bigger and bigger surprise. Sarah always wanted to be the brains behind everything; the woman behind the man. She takes over so unexpectedly, and I don’t know if she was qualified. She thinks she’s cool under pressure, but I don’t think she was prepared to get all that power. She wanted to be Truman’s wife, have a family with him and get into politics and write more books…I don’t know if she was ready to walk down the halls of vamp camp.

Camp also thinks that Sarah Newlin may be very close to slipping over the edge from bad guy and into the realms of crazy. Now that the previous reverend’s wife is a killer, things are beginning to slide downhill for Newlin. Her whole venture into ‘doing God’s work’ is now running the fine line between that and pure insanity. Each thing she does seems to create a new dilemma that makes the last deviation from good seem like a walk in the park compared to the task now at hand.

So How Far Will Sarah Newlin go in True Blood Season 7?

According to Anna Camp, Sarah Newlin is now on a mission to finish what she started. Her hate for vampires has stemmed from the fact that her missing sister was addicted to V. Now, with the dismantlement of vamp camp, Newlin will probably be holed up somewhere, scheming her next plan of attack. And thanking God for making Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) set her free to continue following what she considers the righteous path.

Camp expands on this during an interview with HBO:

She knows what she’s done – I don’t know if anyone ever deserves to die, but she’s certainly been asking for it. But again, to her it’s just another sign from God that she’s doing the right thing. It’s just more fuel to her fire: “I am right. I am God’s tool. He’s speaking through me.” It’s another notch in her belt of craziness… I see her turning into a weird zombie of a woman. I think being sent away will make her more powerful in a sense. She’ll shut down and become a robot for God.

And what does Anna camp think would happen to Sarah Newlin if she was turned into a vampire like her husband?

Getting turned vampire would be the cruelest punishment for her – it’s everything she abhors. I believe if she were turned, she’d commit suicide. She’d crawl to the top of a church and have the whole town there or something. And while she’s frying, scream, “Death to all vampires!” Getting turned and living forever would mean that they won. Taking that away from them, even if it meant killing herself, would be a win for the humans.

So, how far do you think Sarah Newlin will go in True Blood Season 7? Let us know in the comments below.

Why, check out the True Blood cast in other movies and TV shows, of course! There are plenty to pick from. We have included a list below, but we are sure we have missed some since the True Blood actors are such a talented bunch and in such high demand. If you know of any others, let us know in the comments below and we’ll add it to the list.

Secondly, you can see Janina in CW’s web series Husbands. She will star in the show as a trophy wife of sorts – and has possibly killed someone to that position! This certainly sounds intriguing.
  • Stephen Moyer has a couple of things going on also. If you like The Sound of Music, then you’d better get excited now, since Moyer will be reprising the role of Capt. George Von Trapp in NBC’s version of this classic movie. Carrie Underwood will play Maria; the role Julie Andrews made famous. If DVDs or BlyRays are your thing, then why not pick up a copy of the newly released movie Evidence? It stars Moyer, Radha Mitchell, and another True Blood star, Dale Dickey (Martha).
  • Sam Trammell (Sam Merlotte) has been cast to play Shailene Woodley’s father in Fox’s The Fault in Our Stars.

  • Rutina Wesley (Tara Thornton) will also be starring alongside another True Blood cast member, Pruitt Taylor Vince, in 13 Sins. Pruitt Taylor Vince played Dr Finn, a therapist at Vamp Camp in True Blood Season 6
  • Sad to see Steve Newlin die in Season 6? Well, don’t fear, you can see Michael McMillian in the upcoming movie The Banshee Chapter. This is a supernatural thriller that follows a journalist investigating the disappearance of a friend.
  • Speaking of Newlin’s – Anna Camp (who plays Steve’s ex-wife, Sarah Newlin) has a couple of TV shows coming up. Camp will play the ex-girlfriend of main character Brody in TBS’ new sitcom Ground Floor. She will also appear in Season 9 of How I Met Your Mother, playing the part of a troublesome wedding guest.

True Blood’s Anna Camp Talks About Crazy Sarah Newlin…

August 12, 2013

…And How She Ended Up at the ER in Full Costume:

Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) talks to a beheaded Governor Burrell (Arliss Howard) in HBO's True Blood Season 6 Episode 7, entitled 'In the Evening'True Blood fans have seen it all now, when in Episode 7 Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) picked up the severed head of her lover Gov. Truman Burrell (Arliss Howard), and kissed it. In her lovely southern drawl, she exclaimed:

“I had no idea, actually that I was gonna kiss the head, it just sort of happened. If I get an impulse that’s like creepy, I’m like ‘why not’? They can always tell me not to do it. But better to be pulled back than pushed forward, you know?”

She stated that the special effects department got it so right; the severed head looked so much like Arliss Howard… everybody on set was like “Whoa! I can’t believe you kissed that!”

Her biggest crazy so far went to air last Sunday night though in Episode 8 of True Blood Season 6, which landed her in the ER with a minor injury for the stunt she did for that episode. Shot over 3 days, the scene is one which is violent and graphic and certainly one that took a lot of stamina for actress Anna Camp.

In other roles Anna has played crazy, but she says that this season, this time round on True Blood

“I’ve had some of the best lines I’ll probably ever have on television!”

Sookie Stackhouse Was Nearly Played by True Blood’s Anna Camp!

August 12, 2013

Could You Imagine Sarah Newlin as Sookie?

Anna Camp stars as vicious Sarah Newlin in HBO's True Blood Season 6While Anna Camp is thoroughly enjoying the return of her character, Sarah Newlin, to HBO’s True Blood Season 6, it seems she very nearly made it to the True Blood big time: Sookie Stackhouse (played by Anna Paquin).

With her big hair, southern hospitality and an aversion to vampires, Sarah has turned out to be the villain Truebies just love to hate. It’s a challenge she thoroughly enjoys too.

When you have the mean girl, you can’t just hate her. You’ve got to love to hate her. There’s a certain line you have to walk to play the mean girl. You obviously can’t be in on the joke, but you have to commit to it.

While Camp enjoys playing the nasty characters, True Blood’s first showrunner, Alan Ball, had a different idea. Originally, he had Anna Camp try out for the role of Sookie Stackhouse! It seems that Anna wasn’t so sure she’d fit the part. And once she saw Anna Paquin trying out for the role, she knew it wasn’t going to come to pass:

We passed each other in the hallway, and I was like, ‘Oh, Anna Paquin. She’s totally going to get this.’

While Anna Camp may have missed a golden opportunity at a long time role on True Blood, fans sure a happy with her portrayal of Sarah Newlin. While Sarah is the villain we all love to hate, it has come down entirely to the brilliant portrayal of the character by Anna Camp.

Do you think Anna Camp would make a better Sookie Stackhouse? Or, alternatively, could you imagine Anna Paquin as Sarah Newlin? Let us know in the comments below.
