It was a small, intimate restaurant though, so I got to wait tables occasionally.”

Before landing the role of Amy Burley on Alan Ball’s hit HBO TV series True Blood, Lizzy had the opportunity to star in a indie production which she turned down to take the role on True Blood.

“I figured it was a day job that shot near my home — and it ended up being such an amazing experience.”


Did she know what was going to happen to her character ahead of time before she took the role?

“Yeah, I went in knowing she would be killed, but by the time we actually got to that part, I was super bummed about it.”

When Lizzy Caplan was asked how was it working with Ryan Kwanten and all the nude scenes that they had to do together Lizzy stated that Ryan is a really down to earth nice guy which you wouldn’t expect from a guy with a body like his.  As she stated one would think that  he would be self-absorbed and into himself, working out all the time and he is not like that at all. He is the complete opposite of Jason Stackhouse according to Lizzy.
