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.

True Blood Season 7: Sarah Newlin Bumps Into [SPOILER]

July 20, 2014

Find Out Who Sarah Newlin Will Meet Up With Unexpectedly in Season 7:

Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) gets a new religion and a new haircolour in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 3 Fire in the HoleFor fans of HBO’s True Blood, the return of Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) was met with mixed emotions. Some were glad to see this regular True Blood baddie return for Season 7, while others just wanted her dead already!

Regardless of your stance on Sarah Newlin, Anna Camp told TVLine there will be an unexpected encounter with her ex flame/nemesis, Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) coming up soon:

It’s not in a way that you would expect. It actually can be pretty funny and pretty sad. It’s very unexpected the way that I end up interacting with Jason this time around.

As for how that scene will eventuate, Anna Camp doesn’t elaborate, but she had the following to say about her story line involving Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) and Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) hunting her down:

She’s got Pam and Eric hunting her basically and the Yakuza…this season is all about survival. We’re going to see what it’s really like when she’s pushed to the end of her rope.

Or, perhaps when she’s pushed to the edge of her stiletto? When asked about whether there will be another crazy death scene like the one where she kills a woman using nothing but her shoe in Season 6, Anna told E!Online:

No! [Laughs.] This season, Sarah’s gone Buddhist. I think she’s left all of high heels in Texas… Maybe, we’ll see what happens if [Eric, Pam and Sarah] cross paths. I can’t say too much, but there will be some really fun scenes that hopefully people will be on the edge of their seats about.

How do you think Sarah Newlin’s story line will conclude in HBO’s True Blood Season 7? Let us know your thoughts by commenting below!

True Blood Season 7: Sarah Newlin – Crazy AND a Brunette!

July 11, 2014

Anna Camp Discusses Her Upcoming Role in True Blood’s Final Season:

Anna Camp stars as Sarah Newlin in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 3 (entitled 'Fire in the Hole')Fans of the recurring baddie we love to hate, Sarah Newlin, all squealed in excitement at her anticipated return in Episode 3 (entitled Fire in the Hole) of HBO’s True Blood Season 7. However, her return heralded a new hair color for the usually perky – albeit crazy – blonde.

Anna Camp, the actress who portrays Sarah Newlin, discusses being a brunette in the final season of True Blood:

It’s actually a really well made wig, and I adore it. I’m naturally a brunette, so it’s been awesome—no pun intended—to go back to my roots. I walk by a mirror and don’t realize it’s me. I think it’s such a sexy hair color, and I’ve actually thought about going for it in real life.

Besides the obvious changes, what else is in store for Sarah in Season 7? Anna had this to tease about her character:

For Sarah, this season is about survival. She’s definitely on the run because Pam and Eric are hunting her down. She’s left her high heels behind and exchanged her business suits for yoga pants. She’s on the brink of going insane, so it will be an exciting season.

True Blood Season 7: Stephen Moyer and Anna Camp Tweet About Their Final Scenes

July 6, 2014

Will Bill Compton and Sarah Newlin be the Last Standing?

Anna Camp stars as Sarah Newlin in HBO's True Blood Season 7Probably not, but you never know with HBO these days (anyone remember the red wedding in Game of Thrones?). But thanks to Twitter, both stars have confirmed they have completed their last ever scenes for HBO’s True Blood Season 7. And considering shooting apparently winds up on July 9, it seems both actors may be surviving until the very end of the show.

Anna Camp’s tweet doesn’t actually give a lot away, in fact she doesn’t even really confirm that she is even talking about True Blood except to use the phrase ‘Goodbyes Suck‘:

 

But if this tweet is in relation to her final scene with True Blood, then we can assume – unless they were reshooting a scene – that Sarah Newlin gives being the last person standing a red hot go! And how about Stephen Moyer? It seems the last scene he filmed for True Blood was in Bill Compton’s bedroom:  

I wonder what happens in there? A happy ending for him and Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) or does he come to a bloody end?

True Blood Season 7: Sarah Newlin to Return in Episode 3

July 3, 2014

Sarah Newlin Will Also Bring Her Family Along!

Anna Camp stars as vicious Sarah Newlin in HBO's True Blood Season 6In HBO’s True Blood Season 6, it seems that the person everyone loved to hate the most was Steve Newlin’s (Michael McMillian) crazy ex-wife, Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp). We saw her nearly lose her life at the hand of her ex-lover, Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten), but, after showing her some remorse, she lived to fight another battle. And it appears this battle will commence in Episode 3 (entitled Fire in the Hole) of True Blood Season 7.

TVLine spilled the beans earlier this week with the following information:

My favorite vampire exterminator is back in this week’s episode. And as we told you back in February, the show will be introducing us to Sarah’s Texas socialite parents and angry, bitter, gothed-out sister at some point this season (perhaps as early as Sunday).

So we get a two for the price of one deal it seems, with Sarah and her sister making appearances in this, the final season of True Blood.

Do you think Sarah Newlin will live or die? Let us know in the comments below!

True Blood’s Sarah Newlin: Villain, Crazy or Prophet of God in Season 7?

September 2, 2013

Anna Camp Talks About Being Sarah Newlin:

Anna Camp stars as Sarah Newlin in HBO's True Blood Season 7Fans of HBO’s True Blood found the emergence of an unexpected villain in Season 7. While Governor Burrell (Arliss Howard) was instantly recognizable as the bad guy, it was the return of Steve Newlin’s (Michael McMillian) wife, Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) that turned out to be the true villain of True Blood Season 7.

Apparently it was a surprise to Anna Camp also!

I had no idea at first. Each script I got was a bigger and bigger surprise. Sarah always wanted to be the brains behind everything; the woman behind the man. She takes over so unexpectedly, and I don’t know if she was qualified. She thinks she’s cool under pressure, but I don’t think she was prepared to get all that power. She wanted to be Truman’s wife, have a family with him and get into politics and write more books…I don’t know if she was ready to walk down the halls of vamp camp.

Camp also thinks that Sarah Newlin may be very close to slipping over the edge from bad guy and into the realms of crazy. Now that the previous reverend’s wife is a killer, things are beginning to slide downhill for Newlin. Her whole venture into ‘doing God’s work’ is now running the fine line between that and pure insanity. Each thing she does seems to create a new dilemma that makes the last deviation from good seem like a walk in the park compared to the task now at hand.

So How Far Will Sarah Newlin go in True Blood Season 7?

According to Anna Camp, Sarah Newlin is now on a mission to finish what she started. Her hate for vampires has stemmed from the fact that her missing sister was addicted to V. Now, with the dismantlement of vamp camp, Newlin will probably be holed up somewhere, scheming her next plan of attack. And thanking God for making Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) set her free to continue following what she considers the righteous path.

Camp expands on this during an interview with HBO:

She knows what she’s done – I don’t know if anyone ever deserves to die, but she’s certainly been asking for it. But again, to her it’s just another sign from God that she’s doing the right thing. It’s just more fuel to her fire: “I am right. I am God’s tool. He’s speaking through me.” It’s another notch in her belt of craziness… I see her turning into a weird zombie of a woman. I think being sent away will make her more powerful in a sense. She’ll shut down and become a robot for God.

And what does Anna camp think would happen to Sarah Newlin if she was turned into a vampire like her husband?

Getting turned vampire would be the cruelest punishment for her – it’s everything she abhors. I believe if she were turned, she’d commit suicide. She’d crawl to the top of a church and have the whole town there or something. And while she’s frying, scream, “Death to all vampires!” Getting turned and living forever would mean that they won. Taking that away from them, even if it meant killing herself, would be a win for the humans.

So, how far do you think Sarah Newlin will go in True Blood Season 7? Let us know in the comments below.

True Blood’s Anna Camp Talks About Crazy Sarah Newlin…

August 12, 2013

…And How She Ended Up at the ER in Full Costume:

Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) talks to a beheaded Governor Burrell (Arliss Howard) in HBO's True Blood Season 6 Episode 7, entitled 'In the Evening'True Blood fans have seen it all now, when in Episode 7 Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) picked up the severed head of her lover Gov. Truman Burrell (Arliss Howard), and kissed it. In her lovely southern drawl, she exclaimed:

“I had no idea, actually that I was gonna kiss the head, it just sort of happened. If I get an impulse that’s like creepy, I’m like ‘why not’? They can always tell me not to do it. But better to be pulled back than pushed forward, you know?”

She stated that the special effects department got it so right; the severed head looked so much like Arliss Howard… everybody on set was like “Whoa! I can’t believe you kissed that!”

Her biggest crazy so far went to air last Sunday night though in Episode 8 of True Blood Season 6, which landed her in the ER with a minor injury for the stunt she did for that episode. Shot over 3 days, the scene is one which is violent and graphic and certainly one that took a lot of stamina for actress Anna Camp.

In other roles Anna has played crazy, but she says that this season, this time round on True Blood

“I’ve had some of the best lines I’ll probably ever have on television!”

Sookie Stackhouse Was Nearly Played by True Blood’s Anna Camp!

August 12, 2013

Could You Imagine Sarah Newlin as Sookie?

Anna Camp stars as vicious Sarah Newlin in HBO's True Blood Season 6While Anna Camp is thoroughly enjoying the return of her character, Sarah Newlin, to HBO’s True Blood Season 6, it seems she very nearly made it to the True Blood big time: Sookie Stackhouse (played by Anna Paquin).

With her big hair, southern hospitality and an aversion to vampires, Sarah has turned out to be the villain Truebies just love to hate. It’s a challenge she thoroughly enjoys too.

When you have the mean girl, you can’t just hate her. You’ve got to love to hate her. There’s a certain line you have to walk to play the mean girl. You obviously can’t be in on the joke, but you have to commit to it.

While Camp enjoys playing the nasty characters, True Blood’s first showrunner, Alan Ball, had a different idea. Originally, he had Anna Camp try out for the role of Sookie Stackhouse! It seems that Anna wasn’t so sure she’d fit the part. And once she saw Anna Paquin trying out for the role, she knew it wasn’t going to come to pass:

We passed each other in the hallway, and I was like, ‘Oh, Anna Paquin. She’s totally going to get this.’

While Anna Camp may have missed a golden opportunity at a long time role on True Blood, fans sure a happy with her portrayal of Sarah Newlin. While Sarah is the villain we all love to hate, it has come down entirely to the brilliant portrayal of the character by Anna Camp.

Do you think Anna Camp would make a better Sookie Stackhouse? Or, alternatively, could you imagine Anna Paquin as Sarah Newlin? Let us know in the comments below.

True Blood Cast Represents at Comic Con:

True Blood's Michael Mcmillian, Anna Camp, and Rob Kazinsky

It appears that the 2013 Comic-Con was yet again a success for the True Blood cast and fans! Even though our two favourite male vamps were absent( Alexander Skarsgard, and Stephen Moyer) the panel pulled through with lots of insight on the remainder of the season! The panel included Anna Paquin, Ryan Kwanten, Sam Trammell, Rutina Wesley, Nelsan Ellis, Deborah Ann Woll, Kristin Bauer van Straten, Joe Manganiello, Anna Camp, Michael McMillian and Rob Kazinsky. The True Blood Panel was moderated by TV Guides Kate Hahn.

The True Blood segment kicked off with a video clip of teasers for the 2nd half of the current Season 6. Truebloodnet.com has posted this video if you are eager to check it out!

Here are a few favourite questions and responses:

“Ryan Kwanten on Jason’s “noble” quest to find his parents’ killer – “There’s a lot more in store for Jason – he gets real crazy, real soon. He likes to think he’s Rambo, but fails miserably!”

Deborah Ann Woll on Jessica’s self loathing following season six’s dark twists: “Jessica’s going to have to pay dearly within her own heart for what happened – it’s going to take a long time for her to forgive herself.”

True Blood newbie Rob Kazinsky is bowled over by the reception he’s getting from Comic-Con fans. He also promises we’ll get both light and dark from Warlow this season. “You’re going to see some gnarly stuff!”

Buckner promises that True Blood will “return to its roots” at the end of this season, returning focus to its core characters: “We’re really going to make it feel like we’re coming home.”
