Only on True Blood: Lions & Were-Tigers, Oh My!

August 3, 2014

Stephen Moyer Wanted Were-Tigers, What Did Anna Paquin Want?

True to the End HBO True Blood Season 7 promo posterAt this year’s Comic Con, the cast of HBO’s True Blood got asked many questions, but one in particular caught their imagination: ‘What supernatural creature would you have liked to see on True Blood?’ An EW reporter asked them in the video below. As for Stephen Moyer (who not only plays vampire Bill Compton, but has directed several episodes of True Blood), he would have liked to see his wife and co-star, Anna Paquin (who plays lead character, Sookie Stackhouse) reenact out a scene from the Southern Vampire Mystery books the TV series is based on. The scene involved Sookie riding on the back of a were-tiger through the swamps of Louisiana!

And as for Anna Paquin? What would see have liked to see – supernatural-wise – in True Blood that never made it into any of the seasons? A were-owl! According to Stephen, there was, in fact, an owl in the show, but his wife was quick to point out it was a shapeshifting owl and not, technically, a were-owl.

Find out what the rest of the actors had to say in the full video below:

COMIC CON 2014: Deborah Ann Woll Talks About Her True Blood Reunion

August 3, 2014

San Diego’s Comic Con is a Great Place For a True Blood Reunion!

Deborah Ann Woll stars as Jessica Hamby in HBOs True Blood Season 7At this year’s Comic Con in San Diego, True Blood actress Deborah Ann Woll (who plays Jessica Hamby) got a final chance to catch up with the cast of HBO’s vampire series. It is a cast and crew that she feels are more like family and friends than any other movie or TV show she has worked on so far. While it has only been a few short weeks since the cast and crew wrapped up the final filming of the show, it still felt like a reunion for Deborah!

Speaking of reunions – or, more to the point, unions – what did Deborah have to say about a certain recent union between her character, Jessica, and Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten)? And how did she think Violet (Karolina Wydra) would react:

You can kind of see she is not happy about it and I don’t think Violet is someone to let anything go. So there’ll definitely be some drama there.

You can watch the full video she shot with Access Hollywood below:

COMIC CON 2014: What if There Was a True Blood Season 8?

August 2, 2014

The True Blood Cast Discuss Their Show For the Last Time at Comic Con:

Kristin Bauer van Straten stars as vampire Pam in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 7 (entitled 'May Be the Last Time')For the cast of HBO’s True Blood, attending San Diego’s Comic Con this year was bittersweet. While they got to celebrate their show one last time, it also churned up the emotions too. For Kristin Bauer van Straten (who plays vampire Pam – a character with, ironically, very little display of emotion) it was particularly trying. As a person who gets very emotional very easily, she felt worn out and dehydrated by the end:

It’s been really intense. I’m totally dehydrated. I feel like I’m ten months pregnant and I just need a c-section because it’s going on forever.

While Kristin never wanted the show to end, she is certainly over having to relive the end of it!

And what if they did go into a Season 8? Where do they think their characters could have gone? Is there anything their character hadn’t done that the actor would liked to have seen happen if there were another season? Carrie Preston, the actor who plays Arlene Fowler, was happy with Arlene’s story line, but she felt it would have been interesting to see her character become a supernatural!

COMIC CON 2014: Anna Paquin – “Our Last True Blood Family Event”

July 31, 2014

Anna Paquin (Sookie Stackhouse) Talks About the True Blood Cast being Like Family to Her:

Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll) cry over Bill Compton's (Stephen Moyer) Hep-V in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 6 (entitled 'Karma')While many Truebies are already mourning the loss of their favorite vampire show, for the cast of HBO’s True Blood, the grief appears to run just as deep. Recently, at San Diego’s Comic Con 2014, Anna Paquin (who plays the telepathic waitress and resident fairy, Sookie Stackhouse), talked to Access Hollywood about how close the cast and crew of True Blood has become. She even referred to Comic Con as ‘the last family event together‘.

You can watch the full interview below. Anna Paquin also discusses her hair color, how quickly Season 7 is whizzing by, her very last day on set, what she has taken away from her time on True Blood and just why she won’t be stealing any mementos from Lafayette’s (Nelsan Ellis) house:

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.

COMIC Con 2014: Stephen Moyer Talks About True Blood’s Final Episode Ever

July 27, 2014

Episode 10; “It’s a clever way… to tie up a lot of knots!”

Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) takes a bath in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 5 (entitled 'Lost Cause' and previously entitled 'Return to Oz')Fans of HBO’s True Blood are in for a glut of new teasers about True Blood’s final season. Michael Ausiello from TV Line got a chance to sit down with Stephen Moyer (who plays vampire Bill Compton in True Blood) and ask him what Stephen thought about the very last episode of the show:

Obviously, as the season’s going on, you get an idea of where things are moving. So, there were a lot of things in there that I was expecting, there were a couple of things I wasn’t. And I think that Brian Buckner – Bucky – has done a good job of giving every single fan something that they would like.

What of filming that last scene?

Of course Stephen is sad, but he is also happy too. it is a somewhat bittersweet moment for him.

And what about Bill and his recent case of Hep-V? Is there any hope for him?

I think the interesting thing about it is… One of the things I was slightly unsure of going from Season 6 into Season 7 was that Hep-V is this disease that only kills vampires. Obviously there’s lots of metaphors in there and parallels with our society and, therefore, I was worried that because it’s so debilitating that it might be a downer, that it might feel like it’s actually sort of crushing the energy of our show which has always been so dynamic and great. But, actually, I think it makes the emotion become more impacted.

Mmm, sounds like he avoided answering the question there…

Ausiello then asked how Sookie (Anna Paquin) and Bill fans will like the Season 7 finale:

I think there will be people who are pleased and people who… don’t quite get what they expect… It’s a clever way, we do well to tie up a lot of knots.

There is plenty more to this interview, and you can watch it in its entirety below:

COMIC CON 2014: Kristin Bauer van Straten Talks About All the ‘Lasts’ for True Blood

July 27, 2014

True Blood Season 7: The Last Scene, The Last Day:

Kristin Bauer van Straten stars as Pam in HBO's True Blood Season 7 promo trailer 1Michael Ausiello was lucky enough to get a chance to sit down with Kristin Bauer van Straten (who stars as vampire Pam in HBO’s True Blood) during San Diego Comic Con 2014 and chat about all things relating to True Blood. For the actor who is very emotional about the show and cast at the best of times, this time it was especially emotionally draining as she talked about all the ‘last times‘ for True Blood Season 7:

You know we’ve had so many ‘lasts’. My last scene with this person, then this person. And then my last day of shooting, and then we didn’t get all of it, so then I had another last day… then throughout this whole process I sort of keep it together by going; “See you at Comic Con!” And I don’t know what I’m going to say here.

To lighten the mood (and, I suspect, to keep Kristin Bauer van Straten from tearing up there and then), Ausiello moved on to talk about all the fun stuff Kristin’s character, Pam, has had to do so far in the first half of Season 7. Kristin promptly starts laughing about all the fun she had shooting the scenes involving the tea party massacre, seeing Alexander Skarsgard (who plays her maker, Eric Northman) in an authentic Texan outfit, and the fact that her infamous line (which sounds a little like ‘republican’) from Episode 5 managed to trend on Twitter! But, mostly, she thoroughly enjoyed exploring her character via those fantastic flashbacks.

But how does she cope with the fact her maker is dying?

I try to, as an actor, borrow from anything Kristin has. And I have such fondness for Alex [at this point Kristin tears up] that I just thought about how it was our last season. [pauses] You know there was enough to borrow from, like, my time [as] Pam and Eric is limited.

There is LOADS more Kristin has to say to TV Line and you can check out the full interview below:
