June 24, 2009 by  

evan-rachel-wood-2Kyle Buchanan of Movieline had a chance to talk to Evan Rachel Wood at The Young Hollywood Awards, she was receiving the young superstar award. Ms. Wood will be playing True Blood’s Louisiana Vampire Queen, Sophie-Anne Leclerq. She was finally able to reveal some tidbits about her upcoming role on True Blood in a brief Video Interview transcribed by AfterEllen.com:

“Oh! I love being able to talk about that now. I’ve had to be so secretive about it. She’s 400 years old. Her name’s Sophie-Anne, and she’s the Vampire Queen of Louisiana. There’s a queen for every state, and that’s hers. And she’s kind of a cross between Patrick Bateman and Paris Hilton. She’s crazy. She’s just crazy. And she’s a lesbian.”

“Wood confirmed that she’s only filmed two episodes thus far and the producers plan to make her a recurring character although viewers won’t see her appear until closer to the end of the season. At least three of her scenes will be filmed with fresh-faced, twenty-something “Hadley” (who has yet to be cast), Sookie (Anna Paquin)’s cousin, who has been seduced into a whole other world — but still feels the pull of her human roots.”

Ms. Wood will be appearing tomorrow, Thursday June 25th, on both “The View” on ABC at 11:00 am,  and in the evening on  “Jimmy Fallon Live” 12:35 am (technically on Friday in the wee hours of the morning) on NBC. Both listings are in eastern standard time check your local listings to confirm appearance times in your area.
