August 21, 2010 by  

Denis O'Hare True Blood Russell Edgington in Episode 10 I Smell a RatSince the loss of his beloved Talbot (Theo Alexander), Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare) has become a changed vampire and seeks to conquest humans in more ways then one.

In Episode 10, “I Smell a Rat,” airing this Sunday night on HBO, Russell will encounter a male prostitute (played by Michael Steger) who looks very much like his Talbot.

Recently Zap2it was able to catch up with Michael and ask him about his role on True Blood.

“In ‘True Blood,’ [I play] this dark character, who’s trying to find himself and he has this messed up lifestyle. He’s a runaway. He doesn’t really have any friends. So, he’s pretty much a loner.”

“I had a great time working with Denis,” says Steger. “He’s such a generous actor. His character is mourning Talbot and he just can’t get over his death. And my character kind of resembles him and there’s a connection there.”

Only three more episodes left in season 3 and then the long wait for season 4. Instead of dwelling on that lets focus on the excitement that we are bound to experience in the remaining episodes of season 3 including as this clip proves.
