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:

True Blood Season 7: Who Stole Anna Paquin’s Underwear?

July 31, 2014

EW Recently Interviewed the True Blood Cast About Things Going ‘Missing’ on the True Blood Set:

Anna Paquin stars  as Sookie Stackhouse in HBO's True BloodThe most popular question – by far – asked of the True Blood cast now that their show has ended has been along the lines of; “What have you taken from the set as a memento?”

Recently, EW on SIRIUSXM radio also asked this question – with some surprising results! It seems, while many cast members are reluctant to say they have outright stolen items from the set to keep as personal mementos of their time on the long running vampire series, Anna Paquin (who plays main character, Sookie Stackhouse) had an interesting story to share about why she had to make some of her underwear ‘disappear’.

Deborah Ann Woll (who plays baby vampire Jessica Hamby) also fesses up to an item she stole as well! And what do you think Stephen Moyer (who plays main character, vampire Bill Compton) took?

You can listen to the Sound Cloud clip to hear all the hilarious stories:

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.

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.

July 28, 2014

Sarah Newlin is a Good Person now?

Karolina Wydra stars as vampire Violet in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 7 entitled One Last TimeIt seems Hep-V cured Amber Mills (Natalie Hall) now thinks her devious sister, Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) is a good person. I guess only time will tell – but will there be enough of it going around to save Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) and Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer)? Sookie (Anna Paquin), meanwhile, is on her own hunt for a cure – but who is the ‘unexpected resource‘ she turns to? Could it also be the ‘familiar face‘ resurfacing in Bon Temps? At least Andy (Chris Bauer) and Holly (Lauren Bowles) seem to have worked out Adilyn (Bailey Noble) and Wade (Noah Matthews) are missing – but will they be able to save them from the clutches of Violet (Karolina Wade)? And will Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) be able to locate her fairy on the small amount of blood she ingested earlier in the season?

Synopsis:

*NOTE: This episode has also previously been published with the title One Last Time*

Eric Northman, Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) and Mr. Gus (Will Yun Lee) close in on Sarah Newlin in Dallas. Adilyn and Wade find a temporary haven, and unexpected hospitality.

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:
