True Blood Season 3 Spoiler News: Alexander Skarsgard and Alan Ball Talk

January 21, 2010 by  

More True Blood season 3 spoiler tidbits from Alan Ball and Alexander Skarsgard thanks to Michael Ausiello from  Lately Micheal has been about to get these little tidbits from Alan which we all greatly appreciate and helps satisfy our cravings for True Blood.

According to Alan the number of evil characters have increase to three versus last season’s one, Maryann.  As Alan states:

“We have a triumvirate of evil this season,” reveals exec producer Alan Ball. “I’m talking about Franklin Mott, Russell Edgington, and Debbie Pelt. They are all bad to the bone. They’re not just crazy, they’re evil.” Speaking of the yet-to-be-cast Debbie Pelt, Ball tells me that the Alcide’s psycho ex will actually have a bigger role than first thought. “We actually beefed up Debbie,” he says. “She’s going to be in more episodes, so maybe that will have an impact on [what actress] we can get for her, which is a big question right now.”

One the other hand, Alexander was able to give Micheal some more details as to what will be happening with Eric in season 3 when he saw him at the Golden Globes this past weekend.  Alex stated to Michael that Eric‘s journey in season 3 is about revenge and that this season we will see a continuing exploration of Eric’s interest in Sookie. As Alex stated about his character’s path to Michael for this upcoming season:

“I’d say it’s about revenge,” he told me. “He will continue to explore the whole Sookie thing and what that’s all about. He’s trying to figure out what’s different about her. He’s intrigued by that. And in addition to that, there’s something that happened a thousand years ago that he’s still carrying in his heart. All I’ll say is he’s trying to avenge someone.”

All these little tidbits are surely to increase the anticipation for the return of season 3 in June!
