Only on True Blood: Lions & Were-Tigers, Oh My!

August 3, 2014

Stephen Moyer Wanted Were-Tigers, What Did Anna Paquin Want?

True to the End HBO True Blood Season 7 promo posterAt this year’s Comic Con, the cast of HBO’s True Blood got asked many questions, but one in particular caught their imagination: ‘What supernatural creature would you have liked to see on True Blood?’ An EW reporter asked them in the video below. As for Stephen Moyer (who not only plays vampire Bill Compton, but has directed several episodes of True Blood), he would have liked to see his wife and co-star, Anna Paquin (who plays lead character, Sookie Stackhouse) reenact out a scene from the Southern Vampire Mystery books the TV series is based on. The scene involved Sookie riding on the back of a were-tiger through the swamps of Louisiana!

And as for Anna Paquin? What would see have liked to see – supernatural-wise – in True Blood that never made it into any of the seasons? A were-owl! According to Stephen, there was, in fact, an owl in the show, but his wife was quick to point out it was a shapeshifting owl and not, technically, a were-owl.

Find out what the rest of the actors had to say in the full video below:

COMIC CON 2014: What if There Was a True Blood Season 8?

August 2, 2014

The True Blood Cast Discuss Their Show For the Last Time at Comic Con:

Kristin Bauer van Straten stars as vampire Pam in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 7 (entitled 'May Be the Last Time')For the cast of HBO’s True Blood, attending San Diego’s Comic Con this year was bittersweet. While they got to celebrate their show one last time, it also churned up the emotions too. For Kristin Bauer van Straten (who plays vampire Pam – a character with, ironically, very little display of emotion) it was particularly trying. As a person who gets very emotional very easily, she felt worn out and dehydrated by the end:

It’s been really intense. I’m totally dehydrated. I feel like I’m ten months pregnant and I just need a c-section because it’s going on forever.

While Kristin never wanted the show to end, she is certainly over having to relive the end of it!

And what if they did go into a Season 8? Where do they think their characters could have gone? Is there anything their character hadn’t done that the actor would liked to have seen happen if there were another season? Carrie Preston, the actor who plays Arlene Fowler, was happy with Arlene’s story line, but she felt it would have been interesting to see her character become a supernatural!

You can watch the full Comic Con interview EW did with the True Blood cast below:

Carrie Preston: Being Arlene and Returning to HBO After True Blood

July 20, 2014

Find Out What Carrie Preston Thought of Arlene’s Death Experience:

Carrie Preston stars as Arlene Fowler-Bellefleur in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 4 (entitled 'Death is not the End')For fans of Arlene Fowler-Bellefleur (Carrie Preston), things got a little scary in last week’s episode (entitled Death is not the End) with the redheaded waitress nearly dying after becoming a feast for Hep-V infected vampires! For actor Carrie Preston, though, it was more exciting to see the return of her onscreen love, Terry Bellefleur (Todd Lowe):

I was most surprised and excited about Terry coming back, because obviously I love Todd [Lowe]. We’ve kept up, but it’s not the same as having him on set. I also thought the episode does a great job of giving Arlene this major obstacle: What makes her want to come back? Because Arlene dies, we definitely decided that—it wasn’t like she was on the brink of death, she actually goes. It’s Terry who encourages her to go back.

While we were all terrified we were witnessing the demise of yet another of our favorite characters, Carrie was glad to see that Arlene and Terry got some sort of closure:

[It was good] to have a moment of closure between Arlene and Terry, because when he died, it was so quick and sudden and tragic that it was really nice to have a little coda between them.

But, in order for Arlene to be saved, she had to drink the blood of vampire Keith (Riley Smith). And we all know what that means – sex dreams! While Riley Smith recently denied a full blown romance between them in Season 7, Carrie had the following to say about getting blood from a vampire:

I thought, “Okay, you don’t introduce an entire new vampire without having some kind of follow-up.” I was curious what that was going to be, and I hope that the fans will remain curious. Riley is sweet, and he jumped right in.

she told Entertainment Weekly recently. She also went on to say that she was certainly glad to rid of the dress she wore for the first four episodes of Season 7. But, as far as Bon Temps and Arlene is concerned, there is still another six episodes to go before the town can get any semblance of normal back.

And what then?

Well, we will still be able to catch up with her on HBO, thanks to her upcoming appearance on Getting On:

I’m going to be doing a guest spot on Getting On. I start shooting that in a couple of weeks. I’m hoping I can get another show. I really love doing TV. I got my fingers crossed that I get a regular gig on another show.

Well, isn’t that great news? Let me know your thoughts by commenting below!

VIDEO: Alcide and Sookie Get ‘Friendly’ While Stephen Moyer Looks On!

June 20, 2014

Joe Manganiello: Sex With Sookie is Awkward With Her Husband Looking On:

Sookie Stackhouse Anna Paquin and Alcide Herveaux Joe Manganiello get cosy in HBO's True Blood Season 7With HBO’s True Blood Season 7 premiere event this week, there has been a glut of information from the stars of the show about what will happen in the final season. Access Hollywood got a chance to talk to Joe Manganiello (who plays Alcide Herveaux) about the new relationship between his character, Alcide, and Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) – and just what it’s like to be directed by Anna’s real life husband, Stephen Moyer (who also stars in True Blood as vampire Bill Compton). When asked whether this situation was awkward or not, his reply was:

Oh course it is… but Stephen and I have such a great friendship and we get along so well together that, you know, we’re professionals. And, obviously, you read that [in the script] and you go “Oh boy, here we go,” but, ah, if we didn’t get along so well together I think it probably could have been weird but it wasn’t.

Stephen Moyer actually has a different take on what it’s like to direct his wife in sex scenes with other actors:

In a funny way, I feel like — without revealing too much — it’s quite interesting for us as a couple because we’ve kind of gone to places where a lot of people don’t get to.  And we’re still here. And I think that’s good for us in a way.

he recently told Entertainment Weekly.

And what about Anna Paquin’s take on it? She also had this to say to Entertainment Weekly:

It’s not as awkward as you would think. If you were to picture the perfect day at work for your spouse, would that be it? Probably not, but this is just kind of how it’s always been. So it doesn’t feel as bizarre.

Besides this awkward and unique situation he also has time to talk about his upcoming role in Magic Mike 2 and how he keeps in shape for the show. You can view the entire interview below:

True Blood Season 7: Delicious Plot Twist For Sookie and Eric?

June 19, 2014

Entertainment Weekly Dishes the Dirt on Sookie and Eric:

Sookie and Eric ShowerFans of HBO’s True Blood are certainly getting excited about it’s return this Sunday – but there is one particular character that seems to be on everyone’s mind more than all the others: Eric Northman. While we haven’t seen hide nor naked hair of him since he began to burn to a crisp in the True Blood Season 6 finale, the actor who portrays him has also been somewhat on the downlow as well. With his absence from all the Season 7 promo clips and the fact that he was away filming Tarzan rather than attending the True Blood Season 7 premiere event in Hollywood this week, fans are getting a little… anxious.

But have no fear Truebies, it seems we will get our fill of viking vampire Eric Northman in the final ever season of True Blood, thanks to this tasty tidbit from Entertainment Weekly:

When he first appears, he’s letting Jason (Ryan Kwanten) unbuckle his belt, with enough candles flickering in the background to light a cake for his 1,087th birthday. But as it turns out, this is all just Jason’s dream. More silly than sexy, the scene glows as if someone had set True Blood‘s Instagram filter to “Valtrex commercial.” We’ve seen this kind of cheap fake-out before, like when Jason’s romance with Warlow was later revealed to be just a fantasy. They can’t fool us again.

Is all of this enough to abandon True Blood before its grand finale? Not quite. There’s a clever twist involving Eric that could set up an exciting arc for Sookie [played by Anna Paquin]. Whether he is dead-dead or just undead — we won’t spoil that here — he will definitely spark some suspense this season. Even if Sookie ends up with Bill (Stephen Moyer), there’s enough of Sweden’s favorite sunbather to satisfy.

Now I think that is just about the best news I’ve heard all day! What is your take on this exciting development? How do you think this story line will pan out between Eric and Sookie? And what do you think of the fabulous True Blood themed cover for the latest edition of Entertainment Weekly (pictured below)? Let us know in the comments below!

VIDEO: Sookie and Bill Get Bloody in True Blood Season 7

June 19, 2014

Entertainment Weekly Reveals an Exclusive HBO True Blood Season 7 Video:

Anna Paquin (Sookie Stackhouse) and Stephen Moyer (Bill Compton) star in HBO's True Blood Season 7It’s been a while since we have had a True Blood Season 7 teaser video – so here’s one Entertainment Weekly posted earlier.

It seems Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) are heading off somewhere dangerous in this Season 7 clip. So treacherous in fact, that Bill suggests Sookie consume some of his blood before they arrive. I wonder where they’re going? Maybe it has something to do with the mainstreaming party that Sookie is reported to be holding in Episode 5? I guess only time will reveal all!

New Pictures of Your Favorite True Blood Stars

August 4, 2011

Photographed by Entertainment Weekly at Comic-Con 2011:

True Blood cast EW Comic-Con 2011True Blood actors were definitely a hit at the recent 2011 Comic-Con in San Diego. Even Entertainment Weekly had its eyes and ears there to catch all the action and the HOT stars of HBO’s vampire hit show.

The ensemble below consists of: Creator and executive producer Alan Ball, Kristin Bauer van Straten (Pam), Alexander Skarsgård (Eric), Kevin Alejandro (Jesus), and Nelsan Ellis (Lafayette).

Alan Ball ensemble EW Comic-Con 2011

The first solo picture that was shown in a recent online article is none other than Anna Paquin, who plays a bubbly girl-next-door waitress, with a knack for getting the attention of every supernatural in Louisiana, Sookie Stackhouse — which I might add is quite a few!

Anna Paquin EW Comic-Con 2011

Next is Paquin’s super sexy husband, Stephen Moyer. He plays the sensitive vampire, Bill Compton, who since the very first episode has been a very big part of Sookie’s life. This picture of him looks wonderful. His dark hair has red undertones which really brings out his beautiful eyes. I can see why Paquin wants to wake up to his face every morning.

Stephen Moyer EW Comic-Con 2011

Rutina Wesley has always looked great throughout the last four seasons, but I feel like something about her this season has made her beauty completely stand out.  Maybe it has something to do with her character Tara Thornton “dipping into the lady pond.” Tara has always been Sookie’s best friend and even though there have been some blow ups, I still believe these two will come out on top.

Rutina Wesley EW Comic-Con 2011

Deborah Ann Woll has quickly become True Blood’s hottest vampire. She came on the scene during season 2, and has been turning heads ever since. While she plays a young vampire created by her maker Bill Compton, her ice blue eyes tell you she is ready to take charge. Her character Jessica has become a recent love interest of Hoyt, but it seems Hoyt may  have some competition from someone who is very close to him.

Deborah Ann Woll EW Comic-Con 2011

Ryan Kwanten is definitely the little brother that all of us wish our best friend had. This Aussie has stolen our hearts since his first scene as Jason Stackhouse. In this picture, you can see that one of his favorite pastimes is hitting the gym!

Ryan Kwanten EW Comic-Con 2011

Last but certainly not least, is the man I wouldn’t mind waking up next to! Alexander Skarsgård plays the Viking vampire Eric Northman. He has not so patiently been biding his time for the attention of Sookie Stackhouse. It looks like he’s gotten what he’s been wishing for, just remember that old saying: “be careful what you wish for”.

Don’t they all look amazing, Truebies?
