True Blood’s Lauren Bowles Doesn’t Care Who Sookie Ends Up With

August 9, 2014

It’s More About Sookie Stackhouse’s Journey Than Her Destination:

Anna Paquin stars as Sookie Stackhouse in HBO's True BloodBy far the hottest subject for HBO’s True Blood Season 7 is who Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) will end in at the season finale. While for Team Alcide fans, it is already a race lost for the werewolf (played by Joe Manganiello), there are still two other contenders on the table:

  • Team Bill
  • Team Eric

After watching Episode 7 (entitled May Be the Last Time), fans could be lead to believe it will be a happily ever after with Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer). But Team Eric [Northman (played by Alexander Skarsgard)] are counteracting that claim to Sookie’s affections with the fact that there are still three more episodes left and that is a long time in the Sookieverse for things to go horribly wrong for Sookie and Bill!

However, for Lauren Bowles (who plays Merlotte’s waitress and resident wiccan, Holly Cleary) she’s all for Team Sookie:

You know what? I’m Team Sookie… I’m a card-carrying feminist and I think ultimately whether you pair off or not or who you pair off with [doesn’t matter]. Ultimately everyone’s relationship with themselves is at the core for all of us to figure out, as individuals living in this world and with these characters like [Sookie]. And I think so often on shows like this everyone’s focused on the answer: ‘Which one?’ ‘Who will she end up with?’ And to me, it’s just more interesting to sort of see how they all settle in with themselves.

What do you think? Are you Team Sookie as well? Let us know your thoughts by commenting below!

VIDEO: Lauren Bowles Ugly-Cried Through the Final True Blood Read Through

July 30, 2014

Find Out How Lauren Bowles Coped With the Shocking Deaths in Season 7:

Lauren Bowles stars as Holly Cleary and Chris Bauer stars as Andy Bellefleur in HBO's True Blood Season 7With only four more episodes of HBO’s True Blood, for the cast, it is already over. Recently Lauren Bowles (who plays witchy waitress, Holly Cleary) got to chat to PopSugar about just how gut-wrenching Season 7 has been for her so far:

At our final read through, mess. We were a total mess. And I had, like, done myself up – really regretted that decision. When I was doing the ugly cry and looked like a melting raccoon… I actually noticed a bunch of the chicks had no make up on. I’m like; ‘Well that’s ballsy of them.’

As for all the death the show has presented with so far in Season 7, Lauren was saddened by the loss of her cast mates (especially that of Rutina Wesley who played new vampire, Tara Thornton), referring to True Blood by one of HBO’s other great bloody shows; as going ‘ a bit Game of Thrones-y.’

And what of the rest of the season? While she didn’t spill on any more upcoming deaths, she did say the last episode of True Blood could be summed up by the single word: ‘full’. There is apparently plenty of emotion on display – both happiness and sadness, the full spectrum. Which hints at the possible loss of more lives.

True Blood: “Season 7, Just Start Screamin’,” According to Lauren Bowles!

July 17, 2014

Find Out What’s in Store for Holly and the Rest of Bon Temps in Season 7:

Lauren Bowles stars as Holly Cleary and Chris Bauer stars as Andy Bellefleur in HBO's True Blood Season 7For Holly (Lauren Bowles) the start of HBO’s True Blood Season 7 was a bit of a bummer. One minute she was hanging with her friends at Bellefleurs, the next she was held captive in the cold and gloomy basement of Fangtasia’s:

…After we got those first couple scripts. I thought, “Oh my God, I’m going to spend all season in the saw room.”… Other than your ass getting awful sore from sitting on that floor for so long, we had so much fun. Our first day of filming — with the wonderful Mr. Moyer as our director, by the way — was in that saw room. Carrie and I started laughing because, literally, our first take of the season was just us screaming our little heads off. She turned to me and said, “Season 7, just start screamin’,” so we decided that should be the tagline for the final season.

It took three episodes and a significant body count, but Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) finally roped in enough humans, shifters and vampires to rescue Holly, Arlene (Carrie Preston) and Jane Bodehouse (Patricia Bethune).  Now that they are all safe and sound (albeit completely mentally shaken), will things quieten down in Bon Temps? Lauren say no, but she did hint at the fact that her boyfriend, Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer) may propose before the end of True Blood. Which sounds like a good way to end the show – with a wedding! And, speaking of finales, she had this to say about the end of Season 7 and whether it has complete closure for the show or if there is the possibility of something more:

It’s kind of both. Certain things are wrapped up — like, the final nail is put on the coffin — and for others, you see how certain people’s lives could continue. I keep joking with our showrunner [Brian Buckner] about doing a True Blood movie, and he just looks at me like he wants to kill me. And I just say, “Come on, all the HBO shows are doing it!”

How do you think HBO’s True Blood Season 7 will wrap up? 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 Season 6 Finale Spoilers: The Stakes Are High!

August 18, 2013

Who Will Die? Who Will Sookie End up With?

Robert Kazinsky (Warlow / Ben Flynn) and Anna Paquin (Sookie Stackhouse) star in the HBO True Blood Season 6 finaleTruebie fans are frantically counting down the hours to HBO’s True Blood Season 6 finale. And there are literally just mere hours to go until all our True Blood questions are answered for this season (and more questions raised to keep us wondering until True Blood Season 7).

Searching the web today, this is what TrueBloodNet have found for you in relation to the True Blood Season 6 finale:

  • According to Lauren Bowles (who plays Holly Cleary), things will be shaken up considerably to ready fans for True Blood Season 7:

The end of this season, I think, is going to surprise everyone. I love the direction that it goes in — I’m not sure if everyone will — but I do. And I can promise that you won’t be bored. It really takes the show and blows it up in a way that will make everyone clamor for season seven.

  •  As for her relationship with Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer), she is less optimistic about the outcome. As she points out, happy couples don’t last very long on True Blood. So it looks like we’ll just have to enjoy their happiness for as long as it lasts. Perhaps, with the possibility of Andy confronting Jessica Hamby this week will be the beginning of the end for this pair?
  • While there are expected to be more deaths in Episode 10 (entitled Radioactive) of True Blood, showrunner Brian Buckner says it won’t be as bloody as Episode 9 (entitled Life Matters). It will, however, have a bit of a time jump.
  • As a result of the time jump, we will see the first half of the episode dealing with a Warlow (Robert Kazinsky) who is becoming less patient with Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin). Considering Warlow was billed as being the big bad guy this season, this is a little concerning to hear. How will Sookie fare? And in what state will she enter True Blood Season 7: human or vampire? 
  • The second part of Episode 10 will help to draw the characters back to Bon Temps and set the scene for Season 7. According to Deborah Ann Woll (who plays Jessica Hamby):
We have a couple of scenes at the end of this season where we were all there. It was amazing to see, like, the 20 cast chairs lined up with names of people I only see once a month.
  • Brian Buckner has also confirmed we will see Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) make at least one more appearance in the True Blood finale. It could possibly be a nude scene too:

 There’s definitely something for the ladies and the gay men. We might see a certain body part.

However, considering we saw Eric heal Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) in Episode 9, it is possible this scene may just be a figment of Jason’s imagination!

Let us know what you think will go down in the season finale of HBO’s True Blood Season 6 by commenting below.
