Charity Auction For Walk-On Role in True Blood

October 25, 2009 by  

True-Blood-CoupleDeep in the heart of Louisiana lies the sleepy town of Bon Temps. Here, the supernatural community are alive and well. Vampires have emerged from their coffins and now co-exist among humans, thanks to the Japanese invention of synthetic blood, Tru Blood. But in Bon Temps, the humans remain apprehensive about their fellow supernatural and vampire citizens.

Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), a local waitress, telepath and veritable trouble-magnet, finds herself at the centre of the action in a series of murder mysteries. She also finds herself torn between two vampires, a 173-year-old Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and 1000-year-old Viking vampire Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard).

Based on Charlaine Harris’ Southern Vampire Mysteries, HBO‘s True Blood is the latest hit series from Six Feet Under creator Alan Ball. Described by the Emmy Award winner, Alan Ball as “popcorn for smart people,” the first season of True Blood caused an overnight sensation. Season 2 continued to woo the viewers and Season 3 is now in the pipe line. Its new installments will build on the cliffhanger of season 2, promising to deliver to fans a new cast of supernatural misfits and continue the story arc of Sookie Stackhouse.

Now you can be part of the action in Bon Temps. Charity Buzz is auctioning off another extra, walk-on role on True Blood. All proceeds from the auction will go directly towards supporting the L.A. Gay and Lesbian Centre’s programs which has the overall aim of enriching the lives and advocating the rights of LGBT people.
