Did you ever wonder how Todd Lowe brings so much depth to his portrayal of PTSD plagued Terry Bellefleur on HBO’s True Blood? His days in the University of Texas Department of Theatre probably went a long way into nurturing his natural talent because Terry is definitely one of the characters you root for in the show no matter what.

Todd recently spent a weekend as part of a panel at UT’s Department of Theatre and Dance’s Fantasticks’ celebration weekend. He and other guests, Bruce McGill and Brian Danner explained how having their degree’s helped them once they graduated. In Todd’s case it helped him to be a substitute teacher while trying to find acting gigs.

He spent time talking with Rebecca Fontenot from The Alcalde and explains how he draws on some interesting Austin characters and that now he has to convince strangers they don’t recognize him from high school, it’s from True Blood.
