True Blood: “Season 7, Just Start Screamin’,” According to Lauren Bowles!

July 17, 2014

Find Out What’s in Store for Holly and the Rest of Bon Temps in Season 7:

Lauren Bowles stars as Holly Cleary and Chris Bauer stars as Andy Bellefleur in HBO's True Blood Season 7For Holly (Lauren Bowles) the start of HBO’s True Blood Season 7 was a bit of a bummer. One minute she was hanging with her friends at Bellefleurs, the next she was held captive in the cold and gloomy basement of Fangtasia’s:

…After we got those first couple scripts. I thought, “Oh my God, I’m going to spend all season in the saw room.”… Other than your ass getting awful sore from sitting on that floor for so long, we had so much fun. Our first day of filming — with the wonderful Mr. Moyer as our director, by the way — was in that saw room. Carrie and I started laughing because, literally, our first take of the season was just us screaming our little heads off. She turned to me and said, “Season 7, just start screamin’,” so we decided that should be the tagline for the final season.

It took three episodes and a significant body count, but Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) finally roped in enough humans, shifters and vampires to rescue Holly, Arlene (Carrie Preston) and Jane Bodehouse (Patricia Bethune).  Now that they are all safe and sound (albeit completely mentally shaken), will things quieten down in Bon Temps? Lauren say no, but she did hint at the fact that her boyfriend, Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer) may propose before the end of True Blood. Which sounds like a good way to end the show – with a wedding! And, speaking of finales, she had this to say about the end of Season 7 and whether it has complete closure for the show or if there is the possibility of something more:

It’s kind of both. Certain things are wrapped up — like, the final nail is put on the coffin — and for others, you see how certain people’s lives could continue. I keep joking with our showrunner [Brian Buckner] about doing a True Blood movie, and he just looks at me like he wants to kill me. And I just say, “Come on, all the HBO shows are doing it!”

How do you think HBO’s True Blood Season 7 will wrap up? Let us know in the comments below!

Carrie Preston Talks About the Challenges Ahead for Arlene in True Blood Season 7

July 3, 2014

Will Arlene Fowler be Able to Find Her Happy Ending in HBO’s True Blood?

Carrie Preston stars as Arlene Fowler Bellefleur in HBO's True Blood Season 7Fans of HBO’s True Blood are a little concerned about how the story line will wind up for Arlene Fowler-Bellefleur in HBO’s True Blood Season 7. And it seems that the actor who plays Arlene, Carrie Preston, is not a huge fan of happy endings, so now should we be really worried for Arlene? Carrie has this to say to TVLine recently:

 I feel like there’s no such thing as a happy ending if you want to have a good conflict and all those ingredients that create good tension. I wouldn’t say that Breaking Bad had a happy ending. However, I was very satisfied with it. There was a lot of controversy about that ending and I thought that was great because I feel like if people aren’t talking about something and they’re passionate about it and there’s good, healthy, excited conversation about it, then we have done our jobs and so I’m hoping that that will be the case with True Blood, that people will be invested in it and have a dialogue about it and feel passionate about it.

But she did promise that Arlene would certainly rise to the challenges ahead in the upcoming episodes of True Blood, that she certainly is too strong a character to quit. And it’s a trait that Preston is proud of. The actor claims that it is Arlene’s ability to keep going, even when presented with what appears to be insurmountable obstacles that she personally aspires to.

And what of all that blood and gore – how does Carrie Preston cope with that?

Well, I’m on a very tame show compared to all of my other colleagues. I really haven’t had to encounter that much of that since I don’t traffic in the world of the vampires. That said, you know the season’s not over yet. So you can talk to me about it at the end of the season and I’ll probably have a little more to say.

True Blood Season 7: Eric Northman Rumor Put to Rest

July 2, 2014

IMDb.com Lists Eric Northman for Only 2 Episodes:

Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) has Hep V in HBO's True Blood Season 7Fans of HBO’s True Blood are fearful that Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) may not last for much longer thanks to the TV and Movie database, IMDb.com, listing him as only appearing in two episodes of True Blood Season 7!

And thanks to the fact that we ended Episode 2 with an Eric clearing displaying the signs of, what is so far, terminal Hep-V, it is a well founded fear.

But thanks to TVLine’s Ask Ausiello section, we have been reliably reassured by Michael Ausiello that everyone’s favorite viking vampire, Eric Northman, will be appearing for longer than that:

It’s a mistake and there will be more of Eric than that. A lot more of Eric. And if you’re a fan of Eric-Pam, then you’re going to love the July 20 episode. I’ve got two words for you, one of them is “trip” and the other is “road.”

Well, that’s a relief, isn’t it? Let us know why you think Eric and Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) will be going on a road trip in Episode 5 by commenting below!
