Video: Lindsay Pulsipher Talks True Blood and Fan Encounters

August 27, 2010 by  

Lindsay Pulsipher True Blood Crystal NorrisCrystal Norris has been a mysterious character on True Blood this season.  It was obvious that she was hiding a secret and on last week’s episode it was revealed – she is a werepanther.  Poor Jason was almost speechless after seeing her transform from a panther.  Lindsay Pulsipher, who plays Crystal Norris, sat down with G4TV to talk about her character, working with the panthers and her first fan encounter.

In the video Lindsay discusses how relieved she is that the truth about her character is finally out.  Fans were stopping her and asking her if she was a werepanther but of course she could not say.  Anyone who has read the books knows that Crystal’s character was a werepanther in Charlaine Harris’ world but Alan Ball hasn’t always followed the books.  After all, in the books Crystal is definitely not a victim.  Lindsay says she wasn’t even sure herself if Crystal was going to be a werepanther until she saw the script.  For filming the scene where Jason finds out the truth about Crystal, Lindsay says the panthers (one of which was named Crystal) were actually in the room with them.  The trainer was simply holding onto the animal by a leash. Prior to filming the scene Lindsay and Ryan had the opportunity to spend time with the animals and become more comfortable with them.  Lindsay goes on to describe her first “fan recognition” which took place in a Target store while she was shopping for deodorant.  She was “sniffing” her deodorant and noticed a guy staring at her. As she went to walk away he approached her and talked about being a huge fan of the show.
