True Blood Featured on the Cover of Entertainment Weekly

June 11, 2010 by  

True Blood is featured on the cover of the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, available on newsstands now, where Alan Ball and the cast share season 3 tidbits as fan prepare to watch in anticipation the return of season 3 of True Blood this Sunday, June 13, 2010 on HBO and HBO Canada. Here is an excerpt of what you will find in the magazine.

Season three of HBO’s gothic drama promises sex, danger, violence, scary werewolves, and even scarier new vampires. One of the most buzzed-about series since The Sopranos is premiering on June 13 to some hungry fans. Last summer, the show really began to boil, registering with both critics and audiences: At 4.3 million viewers an episode, it doubled its season 1 ratings. “It was a breakthrough season in terms of feeling like it became part of pop culture,” says Michael Lombardo, HBO’s head of programming. “It was the sort of show I started hearing people talk about on Mondays.”

[Anna] Paquin says the graphic love scenes are the least of her concerns. “It doesn’t really bother me,” she admits. “I’m really close with all of our cast, and we’ve all seen each other in various compromising and odd situations.” The actress is, of course, particularly close with fiancé, Stephen Moyer, and Moyer says their real-life romance definitely adds to their love scenes. Jokes the actor, “I think that one great bonus is we don’t need a fluffer.”

    Isn’t Stephen the biggest joker around? I just love that guy! “fluffer’!! I had to think about it for a while – thought it had to do something with a brush, but I guess, it is a brush with a different purpose!

    Thank you for posting this, Adore Bill! At least Anna is leaning towards Bill – that’s good! I would not mind getting a bit from that hunky Vamp!

    • Actually, Lizzie, “fluffer” refers to a… certain industry… LOL, I think I read WAY too much fanfic for my own comfort (though to be fair, that particular fic was Wolverine/Rogue).
