VIDEO: True blood Season 6: Will Eric Northman Die?

Kristin Bauer van Straten Gets Upset at the Possibility of Eric Northman’s Death:

Rumors are flying in all directions again after a video interview of Kristin Bauer van Straten has emerged. In the video we see Kristin Bauer van Straten (who plays Pam in HBO’s True Blood Season 6) being asked by Billy Bush on Access Live if losing Eric Northman (played by Alexander Skarsgard) was a fear of hers.

While her response was a stock standard one that gave a way little in the clues department, her reaction was not. In the video below, you can see Kristin choking up at the possibility of Eric dying in True Blood. She is very quick to follow up with an ambiguous response:

I could cry thinking about whenever. If it’s ten years from now and I’m not next to Alex, I’ll be sad.

Earlier in the season, fans were frantically concerned about Eric meeting the true death after he commented to Backstage about the fact that humans will be the real threat to vampires in True Blood’s Season 6. He also added that he would be involved in a scene with a blood bag that was very hard for him to do. With the death of Nora (Lucy Griffiths) in Episode 7, truebie fans eased off on his demise.

Then this video arrives and the past few days of ease have evaporated and we are back to stressing about the Viking’s death all over again!

Or is Kristin Bauer van Straten getting upset because SHE’S dying in Season 6?

Who do you think will die in HBO’s True Blood Season 6? Watch the video here and then let us know in the comments below.

True Blood Season 6: The Missing Sex Scene

June 20, 2013

Pam Talks Frankly About Her Family and ‘That Sex Scene’:

After 100 years, Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten), in Season 5, became a maker. But in True Blood’s Season 6 the challenges mount with numerous complicated relationships: her baby girl Tara (Rutina Wesley), her own maker, Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) and Nora (Lucy Griffiths), the sister from the authority. Then you can add to this mix the shortage of their synthetic food source, Tru Blood, and a human uprising against vampires.

What will our pink velvet-wearing vampress do with all the complex relationships that are coming to a head in Season 6 of HBO’s True Blood?

Kristen, while talking with, revealed more about that Tara and Pam sex scene that we never got to see; you know the one where we were all scratching our heads and wondering… when?

“Yeah! [Laughs.] I was, too. There have been many different revisions and different scripts, and there was a time where there was a version of a script where we did see more of that. But now, I’m not exactly sure when and where the writers are referring to. When would they have had time to do this? Before storming the Authority? I remember when I said, “We drank a bitch together, that doesn’t make us Oprah and Gayle,” so was it then? I don’t think so, because that first kiss felt like a first kiss, back in episode twelve of last season.”

Kristen goes on to talk about when it actually might have been …

“So I’m imagining it was on the beach in the first episode of this season. That’s a possibility. What I’m imagining is that it was fairly tender and intimate, because that moment on the beach is a vulnerable moment that Pam allows to happen, and they’re really bonding. Pam can be like a turtle and pull back into her shell, so I think this was a real first for Pam, to be vulnerable and have another human being — well, another being, another entity, comfort her. She’s only had that with Eric.”


Ah yes Eric, in the first episode of True Blood’s Season 6 he was pretty harsh with her, saying “you either have my back or you dont.” This would have been a shock for Pam, as it had always been just her and Eric, now with Nora (Eric’s sister) and Tara the ties are stretched.

“She (Pam) liked things the way they were, always the two of them. That was working for her, and she doesn’t want to share Eric with anyone. And it feels like a double betrayal, because she’s shared her entire life with him, while he’s kept secrets. When that happens, you start to wonder if the affection is equal. She didn’t know he had this sister. She hasn’t been quite as trusted as she wanted to be. She’s had to fall back on who she was as a human being when she was on her own during tough times, but there’s no way to completely erase the love she’s had for over a hundred years for one person. That love, and other alliances and relationships, will be really tested this year.”

Kristen still suffers from the occasional case of being star struck too…

“…our guest cast is so exceptional that if I don’t have a scene with them, I make sure to hunt them down after the table read or in the parking lot. That’s what I did with Rutger Hauer after the first episode (in which he is introduced as Warlow). I’m such a fan of his. I have such reverence for his work, and he’s such an awesome, interesting person. Blade Runner is one of my favorite movies. So I just said, “I’m Kristin, I play Pam. We’re so happy to have you. How are you doing? Are you enjoying your work?” I just gushed over him like a fan would.”


Having made friends with the prosthetic makeup artists when her own days were mostly spent in the make up chair in Season 4, Kristen is an avid collector of all the prosthetics once they have been used. She has hinted at an upcoming ‘special piece’ that she will auction off. Not one of hers, but from another character… she said,

” Not necessarily a character I’ve been in a scene with, [but] you’ll know it when you see it.

True Blood’s Pam: Good or Evil?

June 13, 2013

Kristin Bauer Van Straten Talks Season 6:

Kristen Bauer van Straten stars as Pam the vampire in Season 6 of HBO's True Blood

Being only days away from HBO’s True Blood Season 6 premier, let’s rewind and remember where our favorite sharp-tongued lady vamp of Fangtasia was up to.

Oh right. When we last saw Pam, played by Kristin Bauer van Straten, she was consumating her obviously growing attraction to her progency Tara Thornton (played by Rutina Wesley) with a smoldering lip-lock. Will Pam and Tara’s relationship survive the upcoming human vs. vampire war? Will Pam have more quick-witted one-liners? We hope so! Here’s what Kristin had to say about Pam’s role in season 6:

“I think it’s safe to say there is a human-vampire conflict that’s escalated from what the Authority did last year. And that, of course, causes problems for Pam. So she’s trying to figure out her relationship with her new baby/lover, you know, Rutina (Wesley, who plays Tara). And she’s just reunited with her Maker; she wasn’t sure if he was alive. And then, on top of it, the humans are fighting back.”

So is Pam more evil or good? Here’s what Kristin thinks:

“I don’t know if it is a bad sign, or if I’m becoming sort of delusional, but I don’t know if she’s good or evil — but she’s definitely… correct.”

Sounds like the you-know-what is going to hit the fan. To read the rest of the interview with Kristin, click on the link below. And Remember Truebies, season 6 premiers this Sunday June 16th!
