Anna Camp on Being True Blood’s Sarah Newlin

September 1, 2014

Sarah Got What She Deserved According to Anna Camp:

true-blood-season-7-episode-10-sarah-ericSarah Newlin (played by Anna Camp) was one of those characters truebies seriously loved to hate. Many fans wanted to see her die a hideous death in Season 7 of HBO’s True Blood – Anna Camp included! Surprisingly though, Sarah survived the series, something Anna never expected after all the atrocities she inflicted on the vampires at vamp camp in Season 6.

Considering Sarah Newlin was the kind of person who followed many different belief systems and managed to convince herself she was being righteous rather than sadistic was being a blood donor slave a fate worse than death? Or did she deserve redemption? Anna weighs in on this:

It’s hard to say. Living in the character, I justified everything she did. It’s hard to say when you’re playing someone like that. I mean, yes, I did try to kill all of them in Season 6, so technically I deserved punishment …She was convicted in what she was believing in at the moment. I don’t know if consciously she was trying to get out of trouble when she turned into a Buddhist – but I think she truly, truly believed that she was. On some subconscious level, it’s a way of exonerating herself from all of the guilt that she felt. She’s just this complete narcissist …it’s basically her world and she’s living in it and that’s OK.

While Sarah ended up a captive at the end, there were many scenes during Season 7 that were very demanding physically on the actress. For the scene involving Sarah being thrown around by Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard), Anna had to wear a harness:

We spent three days shooting those scenes and when I saw it in the episode, they cut so much from what we shot. It’s really fascinating. I was exhausted shooting those things at like four in the morning, because they’re all night shoots …It’s definitely not the most comfortable thing. It feels like you have a permanent wedgie for two hours. Even when you’re out of it, it still feels like it’s there.

However, according to Anna, the hardest scene to shoot was actually Sarah’s last scene in the True Blood finale. She had to hold her arms up for so long that she lost the feeling in them!

True Blood Season 7: Get Ready For a Southern-Off Between Pam & Sarah

August 6, 2014

Anna Camp Tells Fans to Prepare For Battle – Southern-Style:

Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) and Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) are set for a Southern-off in HBO's True Blood Season 7With the net quickly closing in on Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp), it appears Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard), Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) and Mr. Gus (Will Yun Lee) may have their hands firmly on Sarah in Sunday’s upcoming Episode of HBO’s True Blood. But don’t expect Sarah to go down without a fight in Episode 8 (entitled Almost Home) – even if she is claiming to be the Messiah. It seems there will be an old-style battle of the Southern wits before Sarah possibly meets her maker. According to Anna Camp, Sarah and Pam will have a run in some time soon:

Pam hates my guts, and she is definitely not holding any of that back. She is one of the actresses that I have always wanted to have scenes with on this show. You see these two Southern belles who are pretty girly, and we have some great one-liners. There’s a handful of scenes that I’m really excited about seeing because she’s awesome to work with.

Who can’t wait for this clash? But will Sarah finally meet with a grisly end after a Hep-V antidote is synthesized? No one is spilling the beans on that Season 7 secret, but it does look likely with Anna Camp having said Sarah ‘definitely deserves to die‘ in several interviews.

So, we have scrounged up some stills for you! Three of these stills show sad faces: Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) seems to be searching to skies for something (her fairy grandfather, Niall Brigant (Rutger Hauger) perhaps?) Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) seems perplexed over something. Meanwhile, Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and his progeny, Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll) appear to be deep in discussion.

And then there is Arlene (Fowler (Carrie Preston). Bright, happy, red like a sunset, Arlene. Seems she is the only one happy in Bon Temps in Episode 7 – sure hope we’re wrong about that.

True Blood Season 7: Sarah Newlin is the New Antidote – ‘Here for the Good of Mankind’

July 29, 2014

Could Sarah Newlin Turn From Resident Baddie to Ridding the World of Hep-V?

Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) gets a new religion and a new haircolour in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 3 Fire in the HoleOn the one hand, in Season 6 of HBO’s True Blood, Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) played a large part in developing the Hep-V virus that is now ravaging Season 7. On the other hand, in Episode 5 (entitled Karma) of this season we discovered that there was a Hep-V antidote – and that Sarah drank it! Effectively she is now a living breathing Hep-V antidote – but will she use her ‘gift’ for good or bad?

According to Anna Camp (who spoke to Vulture recently), her character is bordering on the edge of becoming full-blown crazy. And, added to that, her latest ‘religion’, Buddhism now has given her the notion she is absolved from all her previous sins:

I think when she goes to the retreat, she realizes these things, and then she starts to believe that God has this master plan for her, because ultimately, she still believes that God or the Buddha or whoever, this higher power, has called on her. She believes someone made her drink it. God gave her the idea to drink it, so now she’s this vessel of love and light. She thinks she’s here to save her sister and humankind, just like Jesus Christ. It’s really messed up! [Laughs.] She’s completely psychotic. She’s lost her mind for Jesus. In this world, I am the new Messiah. She believes she’s been sent to save both the vampire race and the human race. I’m not trying to destroy them anymore. She completely believes this was all meant to be and this all happened for a reason, and she’s just so desperate to get out. She’s a very desperate woman, and I think she’s about to get her comeuppance.

While she may view herself as a messiah, there are still countless threats on her life; Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) and Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten), the Yakuza, Mr. Gus (Will Yun Lee) and all the Hep-V infected vampires left in the world. Anna sees Eric and Pam, however, as Sarah’s biggest threat. After all, their vendetta is more personal than most. They saw just how evil Sarah Newlin can be after they witnessed her brutal torture at Vamp Camp in Season 6.

So will Sarah be able to talk her way out of her current sticky situation or will True Blood Season 7 claim her life?

True Blood Season 7: Sarah Newlin Bumps Into [SPOILER]

July 20, 2014

Find Out Who Sarah Newlin Will Meet Up With Unexpectedly in Season 7:

Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) gets a new religion and a new haircolour in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 3 Fire in the HoleFor fans of HBO’s True Blood, the return of Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) was met with mixed emotions. Some were glad to see this regular True Blood baddie return for Season 7, while others just wanted her dead already!

Regardless of your stance on Sarah Newlin, Anna Camp told TVLine there will be an unexpected encounter with her ex flame/nemesis, Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) coming up soon:

It’s not in a way that you would expect. It actually can be pretty funny and pretty sad. It’s very unexpected the way that I end up interacting with Jason this time around.

As for how that scene will eventuate, Anna Camp doesn’t elaborate, but she had the following to say about her story line involving Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) and Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) hunting her down:

She’s got Pam and Eric hunting her basically and the Yakuza…this season is all about survival. We’re going to see what it’s really like when she’s pushed to the end of her rope.

Or, perhaps when she’s pushed to the edge of her stiletto? When asked about whether there will be another crazy death scene like the one where she kills a woman using nothing but her shoe in Season 6, Anna told E!Online:

No! [Laughs.] This season, Sarah’s gone Buddhist. I think she’s left all of high heels in Texas… Maybe, we’ll see what happens if [Eric, Pam and Sarah] cross paths. I can’t say too much, but there will be some really fun scenes that hopefully people will be on the edge of their seats about.

How do you think Sarah Newlin’s story line will conclude in HBO’s True Blood Season 7? Let us know your thoughts by commenting below!

True Blood Season 7: Sarah Newlin – Crazy AND a Brunette!

July 11, 2014

Anna Camp Discusses Her Upcoming Role in True Blood’s Final Season:

Anna Camp stars as Sarah Newlin in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 3 (entitled 'Fire in the Hole')Fans of the recurring baddie we love to hate, Sarah Newlin, all squealed in excitement at her anticipated return in Episode 3 (entitled Fire in the Hole) of HBO’s True Blood Season 7. However, her return heralded a new hair color for the usually perky – albeit crazy – blonde.

Anna Camp, the actress who portrays Sarah Newlin, discusses being a brunette in the final season of True Blood:

It’s actually a really well made wig, and I adore it. I’m naturally a brunette, so it’s been awesome—no pun intended—to go back to my roots. I walk by a mirror and don’t realize it’s me. I think it’s such a sexy hair color, and I’ve actually thought about going for it in real life.

Besides the obvious changes, what else is in store for Sarah in Season 7? Anna had this to tease about her character:

For Sarah, this season is about survival. She’s definitely on the run because Pam and Eric are hunting her down. She’s left her high heels behind and exchanged her business suits for yoga pants. She’s on the brink of going insane, so it will be an exciting season.

True Blood Season 7: Stephen Moyer and Anna Camp Tweet About Their Final Scenes

July 6, 2014

Will Bill Compton and Sarah Newlin be the Last Standing?

Anna Camp stars as Sarah Newlin in HBO's True Blood Season 7Probably not, but you never know with HBO these days (anyone remember the red wedding in Game of Thrones?). But thanks to Twitter, both stars have confirmed they have completed their last ever scenes for HBO’s True Blood Season 7. And considering shooting apparently winds up on July 9, it seems both actors may be surviving until the very end of the show.

Anna Camp’s tweet doesn’t actually give a lot away, in fact she doesn’t even really confirm that she is even talking about True Blood except to use the phrase ‘Goodbyes Suck‘:

 

But if this tweet is in relation to her final scene with True Blood, then we can assume – unless they were reshooting a scene – that Sarah Newlin gives being the last person standing a red hot go! And how about Stephen Moyer? It seems the last scene he filmed for True Blood was in Bill Compton’s bedroom:  

I wonder what happens in there? A happy ending for him and Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) or does he come to a bloody end?

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.

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.

TrueBloodNet’s True Blood Season 6 Finale Predictions

August 18, 2013

Who Will Die? Will We See Eric Northman in True Blood Season 7?

Alexander Skarsgard stars as Eric Northman in HBO's True Blood Season 6With only a short time to go until HBO’s True Blood Season 6 finale, fans are already wondering what will go down. Here at TrueBloodNet, we have all been curious to see how Brian Buckner will close a season that is already becoming a fan favorite.

Here are our predictions for what will occur in Episode 10 (entitled Radioactive), the season finale of True Blood:

  • Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) won’t die, but will head on over to Honolulu to alert them about the Tru Blood contamination
  • Billith (Stephen Moyer) will be chased by Lilth and her three bloody handmaidens throughout Episode 10. This will follow through into Season 7
  • Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) will not appear much (if at all) in Episode 10, but will return in Season 7 as the top villain
  • Considering how sad Kristin Bauer van Straten gets whenever she is asked about the demise of her maker, Eric Northman, in True Blood, perhaps it is actually Pam de Beaufort that will bite the dust?
  • Warlow (Robert Kazinsky) will also die. And considering how sad he appears when Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) leaves for Terry Bellefleur’s (Todd Lowe) funeral, it could possibly be at his own hand
  • Niall (Rutger Hauer) will appear right at the end of Episode 10
  • Alcide Herveaux (Joe Manganiello) will make a pass at Sookie, this will confuse her even more in regard to her feelings towards Warlow
  • Some of the vampires that were feeding off Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) were infected with Hep V – this will lead to the big question: how will humans react to Hep V?
  • Jason will only find out about his Hep V status when Violet (Karolina Wydra) starts getting the tell-tale blue veins

It’s highly likely we are completely off with our predictions and Brian Buckner has something else even more spectacular planned for us all in the True Blood Season 6 finale, but it’s still fun to dream.

What are your predictions for the Season 6 finale? And what are your predictions for True Blood Season 7? Let us know in the comments below,
