STARZ will present a first look at David S.

Following the panel Goyer and cast will sign autographs.

“Da Vinci’s Demons” is a historical fantasy, following the ‘untold’ story of the world’s greatest genius during his turbulent youth in Renaissance Florence. Brilliant and passionate, the twenty-five year old Leonardo Da Vinci is an artist, inventor, swordsman, lover, dreamer and idealist. As a free thinker, with intellect and talents that are almost superhuman, he struggles to live within the confines of his own reality and time. He begins to not only see the future, but invent it.

“Da Vinci’s Demons” is the first project to enter production under the multi-year agreement between Starz and BBC Worldwide Productions. Goyer, co-writer of blockbuster and critically-acclaimed films Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, and writer of the upcoming Man of Steel, is showrunner. Julie Gardner is Executive Producer, along with BBC Worldwide Productions’ Head Jane Tranter. Production began this summer and Starz will premiere an eight-episode first season in the U.S. in 2013.

Deborah Ann Woll Thought Jessica Would End Up With Jason

August 28, 2014

The True Blood Finale Surprised Deborah Ann Woll:

Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll) and Hoyt  Fortenberry (Jim Parrack) get married in HBO's True Blood Season 7 finale Episode 10 (entitled 'Thank You')For Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll), HBO’s True Blood ended with a wedding, but not to the person Deborah thought Jessica would be marrying. In Episode 10 (entitled Thank You) we find Jessica having her happily ever after with Hoyt Fortenberry (Jim Parrack), the man she glamoured a couple of seasons back after their relationship soured. But, according to Deborah, she thought the story would end a little differently:

If I’m really honest, I thought she’d end up with Jason [Ryan Kwanten]. It seemed the way it was going, and I also was so fond of that storyline and so fond of Ryan. This took me a little by surprise. I’d been trotting down one path, and I had to make a change… [The writers] had mentioned to me they were planning on bringing [Hoyt] back before the season started, and there would be romantic ties. I assumed that it would be a triangle ending in a different way.

While the marriage to Hoyt was a spontaneous one in order to allow her maker, Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) walk her down the aisle before he succumbed to Hep-V, Deborah Ann Woll had this to say about Jessica’s growth over seven seasons:

She was a girl who lived mostly on impulse when she was younger and let her feelings have her do whatever she needed to do in the moment. She had very little control. Certainly now, I think, she thinks before she leaps, and she understands when something is a vampire impulse that might not work in the modern world. That’s why this first episode was so interesting for her. It put her up against the one thing she couldn’t resist. In the end, I wanted her to be victorious.

Jessica managed to make it to the True Blood finale, but was Deborah ever concerned she might be killed off?

You worry a lot because it would be very heart-wrenching to many characters if Jessica died. Imagine the storyline for Bill if Jessica died. They could kill me off and have a field day with the results of that. I was always very nervous because it seems like such an emotionally powerful storyline.

True Blood’s Deborah Ann Woll Hints at Bill’s Fate

August 23, 2014

Will Bill Compton Survive the True Blood Finale?

Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll) gets released in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 9 (entitled 'Love is to Die')With such little time until the very last episode of HBO’s True Blood ever, there still seems such a long wait to discover whether Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) lives or dies. Deborah Ann Woll, however, was recently interviewed by Zap2It about the True Blood Finale and let slip a few intriguing hints about Bill’s future – or lack of it in Episode 10 (entitled Thank You). The first one occurs when she is asked about the evolution of her character, Jessica Hamby (who is the progeny of Bill):

By the end, and I think it’s illustrated best in her relationship with Bill, she needed a strong father figure and she had that in Bill over the last six, seven years. Now that he’s leaving — and there’s more growing to do, certainly, in the last episode, and we’ll see how that relationship pans out — but she asked to be released in [Episode] 9, and I think there’s something in that that says, “I am a grown woman. I’m capable of taking care of myself. I need you to recognize that, and recognize my independence.”

Now that he’s leaving‘ – as in dying? Or just moving towns? Sounds a bit ominous to me.

The second interesting snippet of information comes when Deborah is discussing why Jessica wanted to be released from Bill:

He chose to go through something that’s going to be very painful for everyone around him, including himself. I don’t know that Jessica wants to have to experience that. I think that’s a very human and universal feeling. When someone you care about and love so deeply is going to be in pain, I think we get scared and we want to push it away. In that moment, she was so hurt and just thinking, “I can’t sit and watch him turn black and blue and bleed and die. I just can’t do it, and I need to be divorced from that.” Without giving too much away, that’s something that Jessica’s going to have to confront in the finale in terms of how she’s going to either choose or not to reconcile with Bill based on what he chooses to do with his time.

So Jessica will have to make a choice whether to reconcile with Bill? To me this sounds like Bill really will go through with his plan to let the Hep-V run it’s course. Or will he be reprieved at the very last minute perhaps?

The third quote from Deborah comes when she discusses all those Bill flashbacks, what they all really mean and whether there is still the chance he might chose life over Hep-V:

He has room to change his mind. I would point out to people that we spent a lot of time this season looking at Bill’s human life. There’s a reason for that. I think there’s a strong reason for why we’ve seen how much he loved his human family, how much he missed of them. If you think back to Lorena, she basically made him give them up. He lost so much when he became a vampire, and I think that’s why we’ve seen him struggle so much with being one. I think Jessica is a part of his salvation in that a little bit. I think he loves her very dearly, and it was his chance to have a family in the way that he misses them, but I can understand Bill not really wanting to continue this — just for his own personal reasons, beyond the idea that maybe he’s causing Sookie or Jessica or people pain. There’s maybe more peace for him in death than there is in continuing to be a vampire, perhaps.

Hmmm… it really does sound like Bill definitely wants to die. But will he? Or is this just a very cleverly worded interview to make us truebies think Bill really is going to meet the true death?

COMIC CON 2014: Deborah Ann Woll Talks About Her True Blood Reunion

August 3, 2014

San Diego’s Comic Con is a Great Place For a True Blood Reunion!

Deborah Ann Woll stars as Jessica Hamby in HBOs True Blood Season 7At this year’s Comic Con in San Diego, True Blood actress Deborah Ann Woll (who plays Jessica Hamby) got a final chance to catch up with the cast of HBO’s vampire series. It is a cast and crew that she feels are more like family and friends than any other movie or TV show she has worked on so far. While it has only been a few short weeks since the cast and crew wrapped up the final filming of the show, it still felt like a reunion for Deborah!

Speaking of reunions – or, more to the point, unions – what did Deborah have to say about a certain recent union between her character, Jessica, and Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten)? And how did she think Violet (Karolina Wydra) would react:

You can kind of see she is not happy about it and I don’t think Violet is someone to let anything go. So there’ll definitely be some drama there.

You can watch the full video she shot with Access Hollywood below:

True Blood’s Jessica Hamby: Social Media Baby Vamp or Zealot?

July 19, 2014

Find Out What Jessica Has to Say About Drinking Fairies:

Deborah Ann Woll stars as baby vampire Jessica Hamby in HBO's True Blood Season 7In Episode 4 of the final season of True Blood we see Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) struggling with her 10 week abstinence from blood – her life force. She posts a blog about how the blood of Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) running through her veins feels so good on Baby Vamp -Jessica.com but about half way through her musings she is interrupted by Violet (Karolina Wydra) who asks her what she is doing on her laptop. When she finds out she is talking to her followers, Violet mocks her by asking,

“Do these shoes look good with my outfit? Does my boyfriend like my hair?”

Violet then pulls Jessica down a peg by comparing her blogging to the zealots in  the days of the Crusades.

“Religious zealots burned my village to the ground, killing every man woman and child that did not agree to accept their truth”.

Only to give her the ultimate compliment and say;

“…I never saw you as the leader type, Impressive.” 

Violet goes on to caution Jessica to get her last words right, as they are very important for a leader. You can watch the full video below – make sure you watch to the very end for an unexpected ‘surprise’. Let us know your thoughts by commenting below!

True Blood’s Deborah Ann Woll Cast in Netflix’s Daredevil!

July 18, 2014

Deborah Ann Woll Moves Straight From Jessica Hamby to Karen Page:

Deborah Ann Woll stars as Jessica Hamby in HBOs True Blood Season 7Fans of HBO’s True Blood will be sad to see a lot of their fave actors leaving the small screen come the end of Season 7, but, for fans of Deborah Ann Woll (who plays baby vampire, Jessica Hamby), there is good news!

It has just been announced by The Hollywood Reporter and confirmed by E!Online that Deborah will be joining the cast of the newest Netflix show, Daredevil. Not only is she joining the cast, but she will be playing the major role of Karen Page. This character is a blind lawyer by day and a crime fighting hero by night:

Netflix picked up the 13-episode Daredevil — along with Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage, as well as miniseries The Defenders — in a massive pact with Marvel. Daredevil is the first series out of the pack, debuting in 2015. It is produced by Marvel Television and ABC Studios.

Daredevil (who will be played by actor Charlie Cox in the Netflix series) was a character created by the fabulous Stan Lee and Karen Page has been his longest running love interest in the comic strip. Previously Karen has been portrayed as merely his love interest in both the comics and the movie (starring Ben Affleck as Daredevil and Ellen Pompeo as Karen Page). According to a source via The Hollywood Reporter, this is about to change:

The Netflix series marks the first time the Karen character will be brought to life in a meaningful way.
