Priory’s New Song, Weekend, Stars a True Blood Fairy:
Fans of HBO’s True Blood and Portland’s electro-pop duo Priory are in for a treat with the following video clip. Weekend is the latest clip released by this band and includes Bailey Noble (who played Adilyn, the fairy daughter of Andy Bellefleur in True Blood) playing the part of a roller rink teen. Nick Krause (The Descendants) is dreaming about winning over Bailey’s affections via his slick roller skating moves – even if those moves only occur in his mind.
Recently, Priory’s Brandon Rush and Kyle Sears discussed the video clip with Idolator and had this to say about it:
We wrote and recorded the song ‘Weekend’ at our homebase, Loudwar studios in Portland, Oregon. The song idea came from the notion that everyone feels oppressed by an authority figure at some point in life. It could be a controlling parental figure, a boss at work or the unrealistic standard forced upon us by western culture. We use escapism to feel empowered (for better or worse), and it’s always been a part of our life. The video for ‘Weekend’ was directed by our friend, David Vincent Wolf AKA White Ghandi, and is about a kid’s over the top daydream. We had a great time hanging with Nick Krause and Bailey Noble. There was definitely some chemistry on set, just saying.

Adilyn the Fairy Doesn’t Have the Life Skills Yet to be Holding Grudges!
It’s a tough break to be a fairy born in Bon Temps these days. Firstly Adilyn had three other siblings to contend with, then they got attacked by a hungry vampire and most of them get drained (save poor Adilyn). Afterwards, she had to contend with an overprotective daddy, a childhood that spanned a matter of months and a naivety that only a fairy can obtain. Add into the mix the fact that the boy you have fallen in love with is your soon to be step brother and the vampire you once trusted has turned on you! For actor Bailey Noble, it’s all in a days work playing True Blood newcomer Adilyn. But is is a job she will surely miss:
For me, I feel like I haven’t had enough time with the cast and crew. This is the longest time I’ve ever been part of a cast, and it hasn’t totally hit me yet because we always had big breaks in between shooting, so I still feel like I’m going to get a call sheet and go back into work next week.
It is Adilyn’s innocence that has made the role so fun, according to Bailey. Each time she opens a script, she gets to look at her character and decide just how to play the part from her view point. She loves the fact that, despite all the troubles she’s had in such a short life span, she can still love life with such complete totality. For Bailey, Adilyn’s innocence brings a whole new perspective to the show. For example, when Adilyn forgives Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) for killing her sisters:
Obviously what happened with my sisters was a huge deal, but my heart went out to Jessica when I heard about Tara’s death. She’s just standing in my front yard, all alone, and I know what it’s like to lose somebody, so I think that we should be together. I see how much Jessica’s loss is hurting her and I know how much my loss hurt me, so I don’t want anybody else to feel that pain. Also, Adilyn doesn’t have many friends, so Jessica is the only possibility. After all, she’s still very young and forgiving… I don’t have the life skills to be holding grudges yet. [Laughs.]
But what of being a fairy in Bon Temps? Does Bailey think Adilyn will have as hard a time as Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) has?
I think she’ll have an easier time than Sookie, but I also think that as she gets older, she might still follow in some of Sookie’s footsteps. Part of the magic of being a faerie is attracting those kinds of dark things, that’s what makes it fun.

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

Half-Fairy Adilyn Bellefleur Gets a Promotion:
While HBO’s True Blood may be entering it’s last season with Season 7, that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for promotion.
At the end of Season 5, we saw the birth of four half-fairies. Maurella (Kristina Anapau) left her fairy babies in the hands of her human lover Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer) along with the instructions that he must raise at least half of them to adulthood.
True Blood Season 6 found Andy at a lost on how to how to raise fairy babies that literally grew over night! Unfortunately, he couldn’t keep to the rules either and only one fairy child survived: Adilyn (played by Bailey Noble). Adilyn helped Sookie (Anna Paquin) out from between a rock (Billith, played by real-life husband, Stephen Moyer) and a hard place (Warlow, played by Robert Kazinsky) and now the pair are the only halfings left in Bon Temps.
It seems HBO have plans for Adilyn in True Blood Season 7, since she has now been upped from recurring character to series regular. It will be interesting to see just what sort of trouble this will bring for Adilyn, considering fairies are like candy to vampires – will she live to see the finale?
