True Blood Stars Come Out for Charity

Kristin at Art of Elysium GalaThe ever beautiful and talented Kristin Bauer van Straten (Pamela Swynford De Beaufort) was spotted at the Art of Elysium Heaven Gala on January 15, 2011 along with husband Abri van Straten. Fellow True Blood co-star Joe Manganiello (Alcide Herveaux) was also in attendance looking quite debonair with fiancée Audra Marie at his side.

Kristin and Joe attended the event for the Art of Elysium Foundation which was created in 1997. Its purpose is to bring children who are dealing with serious medical conditions together with actors, artists, and musicians who in turn provide the children with workshops in disciplines such as acting, art, music, and fashion.

Joe Manganiello and Audra MarieCelebrity fashion blog The Fashion Patrol also attended the event and snapped some very nice pictures of our True Blood cast members. Kristin was interviewed by the blog in a video that can be seen below. In it, she states that the sparkly dress that she is wearing is designed by Mandalay and that awards season to her means being dressed up and attending events. But in true Kristin style, the actress says that while she keeps track of True Blood’s nominations, she prefers to stick to being an actor.

Kristin’s interview starts at 6:02 and ends around 6:30.

We here at TBN commend Kristin and Joe for supporting what seems to be a very worthy and worthwhile cause and cannot wait to see what they bring to the new season of True Blood in June!
