COMIC CON 2014: True Blood Cast Hints at a ‘Not Happily Ever After’

July 29, 2014

Are Eric and Pam True Blood’s Version of ‘True Love’ Then?

True to the End HBO True Blood Season 7 promo posterLast weekend at San Diego’s Comic Con 2014, Zap2It got to talk to the cast of HBO’s True Blood about things such as true love and happy ends and do they exist in the Sookieverse. So how do the residents of Bon Temps and Shreveport view love in this TV series?

According to Kristin Bauer van Straten, who plays vampire Pam, she feels her character’s relationship with her maker, Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) transcends the idyllic notion of true love – after all they have been together for more than a hundred years. She suggests that their love is perfect and unconditional after all their time together.

Nelsan Ellis (who plays the flamboyant Lafayette Reynolds) thinks that his character could definitely find true love. And then immediately backs it up with a ‘but we’ll have to wait and see‘ stock response. Chris Bauer (Andy Bellefleur), on the other hand, believes his character has come to forgive vampires and has had the realization that vendettas are actually pointless. Once he discovers this, he also finds out that he is no longer alone in this word any more.

As for Carrie Preston (Arlene Fowler-Bellefleur) and Anna Camp (who plays god-shopper and resident baddie, Sarah Newlin), both women agree that Arlene could possibly be the only person who could talk some sense into Sarah. But apparently the pair never get a scene together, so it is a moot point. Although, this would indicate that Sarah Newlin’s story line could be held entirely in Dallas for this final season. And what a shame too, that is one southern scrag fight I would have loved to see!

Stephen Moyer’s (who plays vampire Bill Compton who is currently suffering from an accelerated dose of Hep-V) words are possibly the most telling though. When asked about whether there will be a happy ending for anyone in True Blood Season 7, his reply was:

I’m not sure that’s how Alan Ball conceived things. Even though Alan’s not running the show any more, happily ever after is something that we have always known on our show that as soon as something good happens to a character, something bad is about to happen. So, do you ever know? Are they ever happy? I don’t know.

True Blood Cast Eye Off Mementos

July 28, 2014

What Would You Keep?

With only five  more episodes to go in this final season of HBO’s True Blood, cast members talk about what mementos they 5 eps leftwould like to have from their time on set.

Anna Paquin (who plays main character, Sookie Stackhouse) said that she has lived so much of her life on that set:

This has been creatively, the most exciting thing I’ve ever got to do, I mean, I’ve gotten to live with this character for seven years…

Kristen Bauer (Pam) tells us that her eye is on a leather jacket, the one with studded shoulders that was made for her. Ryan Kwanten (Jason Stackhouse), thinks the only thing he’d like is the “Stackhouse” badge that he wears as a cop in the series.

As for Deborah Ann Woll (who plays vampire Jessica Hamby)?

I would really, really like her little red riding hood cape.

Lauren Bowles (Holly Cleary) and Sam Trammel (Sam Merlotte), would both like something from Merlotte’s:

It was my place of employment, they’ve got the gumbo, I’ve looked at it; when ever I’m bored or sad, I stared at them…

Nelsen Ellis would  like to take Lafayette’s eyelashes:

… ’cause they made me feel pretty.

Check out the video below, you can watch the full video on what the True Blood stars would like to keep from their time on set:

As a diehard  Truebie, what would you like if you were on set on that final day?

Personally, I think I’d like to take one of Alcide’s shirts.

Anna Paquin on Larry King Now – “Auditioned for The Piano on a Whim”

July 21, 2014

True Blood Fans Are Glad Anna Paquin Made This Choice:

Anna Paquin stars as Sookie Stackhouse in HBOs True Blood Season 7Make sure you tune into Larry King Now on Monday 21st July 2014 at 5PM ET for the full interview Larry King did with True Blood star Anna Paquin (who stars as telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse in the HBO vampire series). But, in the meantime, here’s a few snippets to keep you satisfied until then.

In the first sneak peek, we find out that Anna Paquin only decided to audition for The Piano (for which she won an Oscar for her part at the age of only 11!) because she was tagging along with a group of friends – and aren’t we glad she made that snap decision!

In the second sneak peek video we find out just what Anna Paquin thinks of having to act in all the sex scenes on HBO’s True Blood:

In the final sneak peek video we find out just how brutal True Blood Season 7 is going to get! Anna discusses not only the deaths of Tara (Rutina Wesley) and Sookie’s werewolf boyfriend, Alcide (Joe Manganiello), but why HBO chooses to kill off so many of it’s much loved characters – and why they are preferable to a high body count of redshirts. And as for whether Sookie Stackhouse will survive Season 7, well, you’ll just have to watch on:

I can’t wait to watch the full interview on Monday! Let us know if you’ll be tuning in for the complete interview on Larry King Now by commenting below!

VIDEO: True Blood Season 7 Episode 5 (Lost Cause) Second Promo Clip

July 18, 2014

Sookie and Bill Prepare For a Party in Episode 5:

Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) offers Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) some flowers in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 5 (entitled 'Lost Cause')This week HBO has graced us with another sneak peek into Episode 5 (entitled Lost Cause) of True Blood Season 7! While the first video clip was a general tease about the upcoming episode, this video has just two characters; Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer). It seems Sookie is attending a party she only just heard about and the flowers Bill offers her are not nearly enough to temper her mood!

Synopsis:

Exhausted from her recent travails, Sookie finds herself the unwilling host of a festive mainstreaming party in Bon Temps. In search of an elusive adversary, Eric and Pam head to Dallas and attend a gala fundraiser. Andy (Chris Bauer) makes a life-changing decision; Jessica and James reach a crossroads; Bill loses himself in remembrance of human days.

Written by Craig Chester; directed by Howie Deutch.

VIDEO: True Blood’s Anna Paquin Swears in Interview With Seth Meyers

July 18, 2014

And Reveals Her True Blood Trailer Left her Without Clothes:

Anna Paquin stars as Sookie Stackhouse in HBO's True BloodRecently, True Blood’s Anna Paquin (who plays the main character of Sookie Stackhouse in the HBO vampire series), sat down for a quick chat with Seth Meyers. At first, all was dandy. She had a lot to say about how sad it was to see True Blood winding up and how HBO was perhaps a little to eager to move on all the actor’s trailers after the last day of filming:

By the time we were done [shooting], um, the power had been shut off to in trailer all ready and I couldn’t find my clothes.

Turns out it was all a misunderstanding though with the trailers having their generators cut accidentally early in order to get them ready for transportation. Then she was excited to talk about what she is planning to do with her family now that True Blood has concluded.

And then Anna dropped a swear word.

When discussing the wardrobe differences between her pre- and post-babies bodies, she accidentally referred to her breasts by another name! But she was quick to gloss it all over when Seth pointed out she apologized for saying ‘baby’ instead of ‘babies’ but not for the swear word:

They’re t*ts, I have them. I’m allowed to call them that. Am I not allowed to say that on network television?… Okay, I’ve been on HBO too long.

Anna Paquin Turns into a Mermaid after True Blood!

July 17, 2014

Sookie Stackhouse is No More, Stephen Moyer is Impressed:

Anna Paquin (who stars as Sookie Stackhouse in HBO's True Blood) goes for the mermaid lookWhat does a brunette who has been a blond for seven seasons of True Blood do once the show wraps? Go blue and purple of course! While Anna Paquin was happy to dye her naturally brunette tresses blond for the role of Sookie Stackhouse in HBO’s True Blood all those years ago, it seems she now has the seven year itch. Thanks to colorist Aura Friedman from the Sally Hershberger Downtown Salon in New York City, Anna has gotten the chance to finally live out a childhood dream:

Anna just wrapped True Blood and told me that she’d been wanting to color her hair purple and blue since she was 13. She’d wanted that color for years! Luckily, colorist Tracey Cunningham [had] already made her blonde, which makes adding colors like this so much easier. I used four colors—two kinds of blue and two kinds of purple—mixing and diluting the Manic Panic until we got the right shade.

Aura recently told Allure.com.

Anna was quick to hit Twitter with her awesome new look:

 

And Stephen’s reply?  

What do you think of Anna Paquin’s new hair color? Do you think it will create a spate of copycats? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
