True Blood Season 6 Finale: Warlow is Set to Explode!

August 18, 2013

Robert Kazinsky Hints at Warlow’s Bad Side:

Robert Kazinsky stars as Warlow / Ben Flynn in HBO's True Blood Season 6Many trubie fans have been enjoying the Warlow (Robert Kazinsky) storyline in HBO’s True Blood Season 6. It’s nice to see Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) have a potential partner closer to her type (fae-human) and that will result in her still being able to sunbathe in the summer.

Of course the downside to this budding romance is the fact that Warlow not only drained the majority of fairies in the area and sent Niall (Rutger Hauer) into a nasty otherworldly dimension, but he is intent on turning Sookie into a fairy-vampire hybrid!

So what will happen if Sookie drags her heels on her promise to marry Warlow and have him turn her into an undead, sparkling daywalker? According to Robert Kazinsky, it could be explosive:

This guy’s a timebomb if he goes off. It’s not just scary, it’s cataclysmic. He’s an incredibly powerful vampire, and as a fae, he throws fireballs. He can take what he wants, but he’s trying his best to be understanding, to be a good guy, to make her love him of her own free will. She has a choice, and he’s given her that.

Kazinsky also compares Warlow to an addict, saying that his character cannot stop at draining just one person. Once he starts, he can’t stop. Is this an indication that another bloodbath may follow in True Blood’s Season 6 finale perhaps?

And if this is the case, will Warlow survive to see True Blood Season 7? Robert is not even sure, it seems:

In my mind’s eye, I can’t see Sookie and Bill getting over their troubles — or even Sookie and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) — so maybe this guy is her best chance if he makes it to season seven.

What do you think will happen between Warlow and Sookie Stackhouse in the True Blood Season 6 finale? Let us know in the comments below.

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.”

True Blood’s Season 6 Hot New Hunk Reveals All

July 5, 2013

Ben Tells Why He is “The One” for Sookie:

Rob Kazinsky stars as Ben Flynn in HBO's True Blood Season 6

The lines were drawn long ago for team Bill (Stephen Moyer), Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) or Alcide (Joe Manganiello). Now, just to shake things up in Season 6 we have the faerie newcomer Ben Flynn (Rob Kazinsky)who poses a mighty risk to Sookie’s (Anna Paquin) equilibrium – could he really be ‘the one’?

In a recent TV Guide interview Rob Kazinsky states why he believes it’s so:

“Ben is the first character that she has ever been romantically involved with that wants, genuinely, the best for her. He is the first real chance that she has for a fulfilled, happy life with somebody like her. She doesn’t have to die. She can have children with him. He’s as normal as she is. To her, he’s normal. For the fact that she might have a chance at true happiness with somebody, that’s why they should root for him.”

Rob is also quite happy about the way Ben has been introduced, the ‘oh no not again?’ scene with Sookie walking along the same road she walked when she first met Bill all those seasons ago. Rob speaks about how he was introduced:

“It’s played very tongue-in-cheek. The audience is going to feel like she knows exactly what’s happening. She’s certainly cautious.”

Rob also believes Sookie and Ben are soul mates:

“They’re kindred spirits who have been the target of vampire threats their whole lives. And, for the first time, Sookie is able to see someone besides her that is in real need of help…. this brings out a side of Sookie viewers haven’t seen yet. It’s the first character that Sookie has met that is traveling in her wake, rather than her traveling in their wake. She’s not a victim this time.”

Ben is a character that has to still be fleshed out over the coming episodes but as he said:

“He’s had a history of betrayal and misuse like Sookie, and that’s going to come out.”

Can’t wait to see more of him! What do y’all think so far?

True Blood Season 6: Robert Kazinsky Terrified of Getting Nude in Front of Anna Paquin!

June 28, 2013

Season’s Most Naked Character Scared to Disrobe:

Rob Kazinsky stars as Ben Flynn in HBO's True Blood Season 6

Robert Kazinsky (who plays newcomer Ben the fairy) has been billed as being the most naked character over a season of HBO’s True Blood. This didn’t stop his fear at having to disrobe in front of Anna Paquin (Sookie Stackhouse) for the first time in True Blood’s Season 6:

I have never had to be naked before… For me it was pretty damn terrifying. No one cared apart from me. They were like, just take your clothes off, now, we are running out of time. But it was absolutely jaw-dropping and terrifying… You get given a day’s notice and I was up all night stressing about it and how bad I am going to look next to Joe. I am a redhead and very pale and in a stark moonlight I do glow. I have a glowing a**.

Kazinsky recently told Britain’s Daily Mirror.

It didn’t take long for the friendly True Blood crew to put his mind at ease though on the day of the shoot. Anna Paquin was also considerate of his predicament. While she was completely professional about the scene, she was not about to let Robert Kazinsky wallow in his ego and self-doubt about stripping off in public:

Before the scenes she said from day one ‘Shut up’ and ‘Do it – if I am doing it you’re doing it’.

Besides the fear of getting naked in front of relative strangers, there was also the fact that Paquin’s husband, Stephen Moyer (who plays Bill Compton/Billith) also works on the show:

I asked him what are the boundaries, what can I do? And he said just do what you should do. Stephen couldn’t be more giving or kind and they couldn’t be more secure in their relationship.

While Kazinsky is yet to reveal his bare butt in Season 6, it will be interesting to see if his fear shows in his performance.

True Blood Season 6: Newest Naked Love Interest for Sookie

June 24, 2013

A New Faerie Comes Packing Muscle:

Rob Kazinsky stars as Ben Flynn in HBO's True Blood Season 6

29, English and ginger actor Rob Kazinsky will join the ranks of the hot and nude cast of True Blood as Sookie’s (Anna Paquin) latest fae love for Season 6.

And he’s prepared for it:

“I am 100 percent certain that I am going to be absolutely hated by everyone. Team Eric’s going to hate me, Team Bill’s going to hate me, Team Alcide — they’re all going to absolutely loathe this guy just because he’s not them.”

Kazinsky also added that his fae character Ben is ‘honest,’ ‘accessible’, and will provide a unique kind of happiness for Sookie.

His exposure, however, is a little different from the rest of the cast’s:

“I was told that I’m most naked character they’ve had over the course of one season.”

When it comes to his physique, however, his answer stunned us:

“I really wish I could say [I work out] a lot, [but] on your first day when you come to set and you got Joe Manganiello and you got Ryan Kwanten, you just realize that no matter how much you work out, genetics do everything. There’s no point in trying too hard.”

Oh, to be so naturally hot…

Even with his great genetics, the actor certainly put on an effort for director Guillermo Del Toro‘s upcoming action film Pacific Rim by gaining 40 pounds in muscle through eating 12,000 calories for four months every day and working out five hours a day six days a week.

Talk about effort! Kazinsky gushed:

“It’s really really really hard. And we did it because in the original script there were a lot of topless scenes but then when we got up there after putting all that effort in, just [actor] Charlie Hunnam’s getting naked.”

The American way of doing things after working in England on British soap opera Eastenders was also a significant change for the actor. He admitted:

“The biggest difference to me is always craft services. Having free food on set is just the best thing that’s ever happened to anybody ever. For the BBC there’s no such thing as crafty or free food. At Eastenders there wasn’t, anyway. So having doughnuts on set? Wonderful. Fresh fruit all the time? Having a coffee machine instead of having to pay three pounds for your coffee every time you want one? Oh my God, it’s great.”

He seems to be enjoying his time on the True Blood set, and we’re sure we’ll enjoy his time too!
