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.

True Blood Season 7: Ryan Kwanten Talks About THAT Scene in Episode 2

June 30, 2014

What Happens When Alexander Skarsgard and Ryan Kwanten Suggest They Work Together:

Ryan Kwanten (Jason Stackhouse) and Alexnader Skarsgard (Alexander Skarsgard) star in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 2 (entitled 'I Found You')Fans of HBO’s True Blood have heard many rumors about a certain scene that finally appeared in True Blood Season 7 Episode 2 (entitled I Found You). It entailed a certain sex dream involving Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) and Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) thanks to a vampire blood healing Eric performed on Ryan in True Blood Season 6.

Well, fans were not let down with this scene tonight!

And, according to Ryan Kwanten, the idea was, mostly, his and Alexander Skarsgard’s:

There was word on the street that a scene was coming, and to be honest, Alex and I had been — not necessarily begging to work together — but we’d been pondering the thought, “What if we were ever put in a scene where it was just the two of us? What would happen?” And this is what our illustrious writers came up with.

While it took a while to set this scene up, the filming of it only took a couple of hours. And most of that time was spent laughing. The scene has been described as ‘elegant’, Ryan was not expecting the scene to turn out that way at all – but he’s happy it did.

But why is Jason all of a sudden dreaming of Eric Northman? After all, it’s been a while since they shared blood – more than six months in fact! Kwanten had this explanation:

Well, obviously, Jason has had these dreams before, with other vampires whose blood he’s had. I mean, Eric’s gotten himself into some trouble, and I think Jason sensed that.

It all makes sense now. What were your thoughts on this scene? Let us know in the comments below!

VIDEO: True Blood Season 7 Episode 2 Promo Clips x 2

June 26, 2014

Episode 2, I Found You, Gets Two More Video Clips to Tease Fans:

Ryan Kwaten stars as Jason Stackhouse in Episode 2 of HBO's True Blood Season 7With only a few short days until Episode 2 (entitled I Found You) of HBO’s True Blood Season 7 airs, we have found a couple of teaser clips for you!

The first one features Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer), Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten), Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) and Alcide Herveaux (Joe Manganiello). This small group has ventured out to the neighboring town of Saint Alice. A town that is new to fans, but now we know why it is important this season – it was the last town attacked before the Hep-V vampires moved on to Bon Temps! Thanks to Jason and his uncanny ability to ingest and then estimate how old pizza is, we now know just how long ago the town of Saint Alice was attacked:

The second clip features Sookie and Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer). It seems Sookie is in need of Bill’s protection – or his knowledge of whether she is in trouble or not:

So, what do you think will go down in Episode 2 of True Blood’s Season 7? Let us know in the comments below!

VIDEO: Ryan Kwanten Gives Us The Rugged Rundown on True Blood Season 7

June 20, 2014

True Blood’s Ryan Kwanten Has a Drink With The Wrap:

Ryan-Kwanten-stars-as-Jason-Stackhouse-and-Chris-Bauer-stars-as-Andy-Bellefleur-in-HBOs-True-Blood-Season-7Fans of HBO’s True Blood often wonder just how much work goes into maintaining a body like Joe Manganiello’s, Alexander Skarsgard’s and Ryan Kwanten’s. Considering how much naked time many of these men have on True Blood, maintaining a ripped physique is obviously important.

This question was also on The Wrap’s mind when they interviewed Ryan Kwanten recently for their Drinking With The Stars segment. For Ryan (who plays the dimwitted but delicious Jason Stackhouse), his exercise regime appears to be a little more obtainable than one might think:

Being an Aussie, I’m much more of an outdoors kind of guy. So any time I can kind of get outside, running, hiking, swimming, all that kind of stuff. So, yeah, I kind of avoid the gym.

So there you have it Truebies, all we need to do is get outdoors and get exercising!

As well as his workout regime, Ryan was quick to point out just how much HBO’s True Blood has changed his life. And even though the recipe for the television series seemed a good one all those years ago, he was still nervous that fans might not be receptive to True Blood.

You can find out what he thinks of the rest of his cast members by watching the full video interview Ryan Kwanten did with The Wrap 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 Season 7: Get Ready for Some Steamy Action!

June 15, 2014

Who Teams up for Some Same-Sex Action on HBO’s True Blood Season 7?

Ryan Kwanten stars as Jason Stakhouse in HBO's True Blood Season 7Fans of HBO’s True Blood can look forward to an unlikely matching in True Blood Season 7 but who it will be is still open for unterpretation!

While not a lot has been revealed yet, TVLine have released this very interesting teaser for an upcoming episode in Season 7 when a fan asked or a spoiler on the final season:

How about what’s sure to be the most talked-about sex scene in True Blood history? And yes, it’s crazier than that time Bill [Compton (played by Stephen Moyer)] climbed out of his grave and had sex with Sookie [Stackhouse (played by Anna Paquin)] in the graveyard. This same-sex hookup, between two non-gay characters, goes down in Episode 2 of the show’s final season — and trust me, it was worth the wait. I can’t say much more, but in case you’re wondering, this particular “love” scene is accompanied by strings.

Strings? As in 50 Shades of Grey type of strings? Or maybe they just mean there will be strings attached? Either way, this will be one interesting love scene, that’s for sure!

So who will it involve? While Lafayette Reynolds (Nelsan Ellis) is openly gay in True Blood, this would seem like the most likely person. However, it would not be a shock to see him pairing up with another guy – after all, we’ve already seen that when he hooked up with the awesome Jesus (Kevin Alejandro).

But, remember back in Season 6 when Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) healed Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) and there was the promise of a Jason/Eric dream pairing there? Wouldn’t it be awesome if we got to see this in Season 7? And according to True Blood’s show runner, Brian Buckner, this might just be a reality:

I think you can reasonably expect it. With our show there is an appetite — Alan from the get-go called it “popcorn for smart people.” And popcorn is addictive: You keep eating it and expect there to be another piece of popcorn right away. My favorite shows on TV make you wait for things. So the idea that I failed to deliver on a promise when I only made one episode after that promise … You know, sometimes things are better when we wait for them. I would love to get our audience conditioned to the idea that this might be a show that delays gratifications sometimes. Because of course we know people want to see that dream. The setup wasn’t written lightly. And believe me, there were HBO executives who were saying, “You have to give us the dream!” And we will. Of course we will. But that doesn’t mean it has to come in the very next episode.

If it’s not Eric and Jason – who would you like to see hook up in True Blood Season 7? Let us know in the comments below!
