Charlaine Harris is Sad to See Her Werewolf Killed Off:

Charlaine HarrisWhile many Truebie fans were devastated over the loss of werewolf Alcide Herveaux (played by Joe Manganiello) in Episode 3 of HBO’s True Blood Season 7, for author Charlaine Harris, it was more personal than that.

In the books that True Blood is based on (the Southern Vampire Series), Alcide survives to the very end – even if he doesn’t end up with Sookie Stackhouse (played by Anna Paquin in the TV series). Charlaine has seen the birth and death of many of characters differ from her series, but it seems this one has hit a nerve:

I did [watch] because I’m very fond of him. He’s a lovely guy, inwardly and outwardly, and I was very surprised, because, of course, that isn’t how my books end, but then, I didn’t really expect them to go out the way my books did. They haven’t really followed them significantly, which is fine, but it just leaves me wondering who else will bite the dust before the series is over.

Who do you think is next to die in HBO’s True Blood Season 7? Let us know in the comments below!
