Video: True Blood Cast Dishes Spoilers at Season 5 Premiere

June 7, 2012

New Couples, Old Adversaries, a Long Awaited Backstory:

Alexander Skarsgård, Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer at True Blood Season 5 PremiereWhen the cast of HBO’s True Blood turned out for the Season 5 premiere, they were interviewed on the red carpet. Everyone was happy to share information and insights into their characters and the events of the show itself.

*Warning: Mild spoilers ahead!

Alan Ball said that Season 5 is the season of church and state. It’s the season of politics and religion from the vampire perspective. When asked about Scott Foley’s character, Patrick, Mr. Ball explained that he made a bad decision in the heat of battle and it has far reaching consequences. Finally, Mr. Ball alluded to the introduction of some new romantic couples. He couldn’t elaborate because it would give too many story details away.

Jacob Hopkins (Alexander) described his character as feisty and strong minded. He says Alexander grew more obnoxious with each episode.

Denis O’Hare (Russell Edgington) said that vampire politics are the focus of Season 5. Mr. O’Hare explained that when people are brought back to life, they have to lose something. With Russell’s resurrection, he has lost his vicious ambition. In its place are a playfulness, ease, and humor. But make no mistake, Russell is still really dangerous. He still kills a lot of people, and kills them with glee. When asked, Mr. O’Hare said it took Russell about 4-5 episodes to heal. Most intriguingly of all, Russell unexpectedly falls in love again.

“Something happens from across the room. Something happens while sharing a body. Someone you know. You’ll be very surprised  by it.”

Lucy Griffiths (Nora) explained that Nora and her ‘brother’ Eric love each other very much but haven’t seen one another in a long time. Their relationship can be very fraternal, in that they can be very aggressive toward each other. They make a great team when they work together but otherwise they just mess each other up.

Stephen Moyer (Bill Compton) talked of the close relationship that developed between his character and Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård).

“We’re good friends and it’s been a lot of fun. And we sort of love each other.”

Kristin Bauer van Straten (Pam) shared that Nora’s appearance caused a little bit of trouble for Pam. Ms. Bauer van Straten explained that she and Alex have been asking for Pam’s backstory for years and were thrilled to finally see it played out. She says the story explains the Pam we know.

Kelly Overton plays a new werewolf character named Rikki. She describes her character as a strong, resourceful werewolf, the opposite of the damsel in distress. She’s determined to find out what happened to the Pack Master and is not loving Alcide at the moment.

Rutina Wesley said that, despite people’s doubts, Tara is coming back.

Michael McMillian (Steve Newlin) said that becoming a vampire might be the best thing that’s ever happened to Steve. At first, he wondered if Steve would be self-loathing but the reality is, he’s very attracted to power. Jason is the guy Steve always wanted to be and he’s coming after Jason. But, Jason has a new vampire friend in Jessica.

“If you mess with Jason, you mess with Jessica.”

Apparently, the first four episodes are a Pam tour de force, and the origin story between Pam and Eric is fantastic. Fans don’t have long to wait now. Season 5 of True Blood premieres on HBO June 10th.

Check out the video below, if you’d prefer to skip to the good stuff (strictly True Blood related), it starts right before the 3-minute mark. Enjoy!

Alexander Skarsgård at Season 3 True Blood Premiere in Poland

October 3, 2010

Alexander Skarsgård talks about being Eric Northman, True Blood, and himself!

HBO‘s True Blood recently had its Season 3 premiere in Poland.  Alexander Skarsgård (Eric Northman), walked the red carpet, did interviews and chatted with fans and we have videos of his appearances.

In this first video we see Skarsgård arriving at the premiere along with fans of the show choosing I Love Eric or I Love Sookie buttons.

In this video we see Skarsgård greeted warmly at the Season 3 discussion.

In discussing the history and background of Eric Northman, Skarsgård offers us this about Eric:

“Charlane didn’t really say where he was from so I took it upon myself.  I decided he was from southeast Sweden.  That’s where my family is from.”

Alexander also discusses what they do on hiatus and how he feels about his castmates:

“You know, I’m from Stockholm, Sweden and the show films in Los Angeles which is a long way from home.  So when I’m away they are my family away from my real family”

In this video Skarsgard discusses his decision to move to America to further his career.

“I was getting typecast in Sweden, I was still playing the college football player at 26, 27. I needed new challenges”

I think we’re all pretty glad that he decided to hop the pond for new roles!

In an interview with Dzien Dobry, Alexander discusses leaving acting at a young age and why he decided to start again among other things.

“I left acting at 13.  I just quit.  I didn’t decide to come back until I was 21.”

We’re all glad he came back!  From his amazing turn in ‘Kill Your Darlings’ to our beloved Eric Northman we can all be pleased with his return to acting.
