True Blood Finale: A Look Back on… The Cast Before True Blood

August 24, 2014

Check Out These Photo’s of the True Blood Cast From BEFORE They Were on True Blood:

For many True Blood fans, the HBO vampire series introduced them to some amazing new actors. However, these actors weren’t all fresh from acting school. Some, like Denis O’Hare (who played villain Russell Edgington) had starred in many, many TV shows and movies before they were introduced to truebies via True Blood.

So lets have a look at some of them via Mashable’s recent list:

Before Anna Paquin was a telepathic waitress called Sookie Stackhouse, she won an Oscar when she was only a child in a movie called The Piano:

Stephen Moyer starred as Prouix the Architect in Quills alongside Geoffrey Rush and Kate Winslet long before he took on the role Bon Temps resident vampire Bill Compton:

Alexander Skaragard starred in many Swedish movies before starring as a male model called Meekus in Zoolander. However, his earliest role was that of Kalle Nubb in Åke och hans värld (Åke and His World). Of course, we all know him now as the 1000 year old viking vampire, Eric Northman:

Alexander Skarsgard in Ake och hans varld

Before Ryan Kwanten was a dimwitted southern deputy called Jason Stackhouse, he starred as Vinnie in a long time recurring role on Australia’s Home and Away:

Rutina Wesley may be known as Tara Thornton, the bestie of Sookie who managed to die twice in True Blood, but before that she was Raya Green in How She Move:

And as for Kristin Bauer van Straten who plays vampire Pam? Well, she will forever go down in history as Jillian, the woman with man hands in Seinfeld:

Even Stephen Moyer Was Surprised Bill Said No to a Hep-V Cure!

August 24, 2014

Will Bill Die in the True Blood Season 7 Finale?

Stephen Moyer stars as Bill Compton, the latest Hep-V victim, from HBO's True Blood Season 7In Episode 9 (entitled Love is to Die) of HBO’s True Blood, many fans were shocked to discover that even though Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) had been doing her very best to find a cure for Bill Compton’s (Stephen Moyer) accelerated dose of Hep-V, he said no when the antidote was finally found inside the blood of Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp). It turns out even Stephen Moyer was a bit confused as to Bill’s decision:

I had a slight issue with it, because I couldn’t understand why he would go to the storeroom to Fangtasia and then say no. Ultimately, he goes because he wants to do right by Sookie. His decision to not turn around then and there is his going along with what Sookie has tried to make happen, and it’s really only when he’s right there that he thinks, ‘no.’

But where will this leave Bill leading into the final episode of HBO’s True Blood ever? Will Bill finally meet the true death? Stephen has this to say about Episode 10 (entitled Thank You):

At the end of [episode] nine, he has called Sookie and had the conversation with Eric, Eric’s gone back, and he knows that he’s going to talk to her. He’s going to see her, because she deserves it and is owed it, to know what’s been going on for him and why he is doing what he’s doing. We sort of enter into the episode right there.

Right, so that’s as clear as mud now! However, there is also this last piecel of information:

One of the things that Anna and I said — we had a dinner with Bucky [showrunner Brian Buckner] a year ago, before we had started filming, when they were just conceiving of this year, and quite frankly sat down with him and said, “We do not need in any way need you guys to try to tie up the Bill-Sookie love knot. If you don’t feel like that’s part of the show, we absolutely don’t need for it to be that.” I had said, “If you want that, we both do. If you see the show as Alcide [Joe Manganiello] and Sookie, that would be totally cool by us. If you see it as Eric [Alexander Skarsgard] and Sookie, that would be absolutely cool.” I certainly didn’t want to play an obvious part. One of the things we’ve been good at is surprising the audience, not always giving them what they want or expect. So for me, it’s been interesting to sort of find that character again. He’s been so many things. I think he’s had the most difficult arc in many respects, trying to find that sustenance and feeling.

Well, your guess is now as good as mine as to where the end of True Blood is headed in the final hour. Let us know your theories by commenting below!

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:
