True Blood’s Rutina Wesley Dishes on Life as a Vampire

Rutina’s Take On Tara Thornton as a Vampire:

TaraThe end of episode one of this season’s True Blood definitely left almost every viewer shocked beyond words. The cast and crew of the show did an excellent job keeping viewers in the dark about what Tara’s fate would be, I was certain there was no way that Pam would be unable to save her. Now that her fate has been revealed, Rutina Wesley can finally sit down and talk all about what’s in store for her character and the adjustments she’s had to make. In an interview with TVLine, Wesley opens up about what it’s been like being a vamp so far.

In my opinion, the most interesting part of playing a vampire would be the fangs!! They’re fun and fierce and I never get tired of seeing anyone pop them out. Wesley was super excited to earn her fangs and practice using them:

“I took a bunch of goofy pictures in my trailer. I was looking at myself and like, “Oh my God!” It was very weird getting used to seeing my face with fangs popping out. The thing that’s hard is talking with them. We have this thing that if you can say Sookie Stackhouse then you’re good.”

Now that Tara is a vampire, not only will her lifestyle change, but her relationships as well. She seems to be on the outs at the moment with her human friends. All with the exception of Sam, which was surprising to say the least, as he was never a huge fan of vampires. With Pam as her Maker, I’m sure we will see a ton of great interaction between these two strong characters. Wesley had this to say about the two of them:

“Their relationship is going to be fun because they both say what they want. They’re both like, “Whatever.” It’s going to be interesting to see how that relationship grows — if it does grow.”

After months and months of speculation I’m glad that we have finally settled the issue of Tara’s fate. Now it just gets more interesting from here on out. What are some of your thoughts on Tara’s new life as a baby vamp? Let us know in the comments section!
