True Blood’s Andy Bellefleur on Becoming an Addict

Chris Bauer Talks About Serious Subject Matter:

Chris Bauer is Sheriff Andy BellefleurSeason 4 of True Blood has showed that the inhabitants of Bon Temps, Louisiana have been stuck in stickier situations than when we saw them in the season 3 finale. While True Blood has multiple comedic scenes, it is also famous for depicting serious subject matter—and for Sheriff Andy Bellefleur, that serious subject matter is addiction.

Chris Bauer, who plays V addict Andy Bellefleur, said:

“As soon as Season 4 opened, it was pretty obvious he was deep into the effects of vampire blood. I think he’s been at it pretty hardcore for a while.”

In reference to the V addiction storyline, Bauer laughs and adds,

“I may be testing yours and a lot of the audience’s patience. But I think most of those consequences are to himself. For better or worse, [Andy] is a guy who has a pretty solitary life. There’s only so many people he can affect. Over four seasons, it’s become really obvious that his solitude is mostly his own doing. He doesn’t really engender himself positively to anybody and it’s in spite of his desire because all he wants to do is belong to something special.”

Bauer’s character has almost been unrecognizable this season thanks to his out of control V addiction and probably needs the love of a good woman to solve his problems. Bauer agreed, saying he couldn’t think of anything better. Also, Andy Bellefleur doesn’t know that King Bill Compton is actually an ancestor of his. Will he find out? Bauer said, “I hope he will find out about it because it’s just one of those moments that would be a shame to waste.”

What do you say, Truebies? Is it time for Andy to overcome his addiction, or has he not hit rock bottom yet?  Do you think he’ll snap when he finds out he’s related to Bill?  Share your thoughts with us below!

  • Everyone’s bottom is different sometimes its jail or institutions.I think in andy’s case because of his addiction him almost losing his job and friends such as Jason could possibly be his bottom and I would love to his reaction of him being related to Bill Compton

  • I think it would be awesome to see the look on Andy’s face if he finds out he’s related to Bill.  LOL.  Do I think he’s hit bottom yet? No. But I think Jason has just about reached the point that he is tired of savin Andy, and will be helping him find his bottom real soon.  Just a guess.
