True Blood Season 5 News – Wesley is Terrified!

Rutina Wesley Season 4 screen testRutina Wesley, the Julliard-educated actress who plays Tara Thornton on HBO’s True Blood was interviewed at Fashion Week by PopSugar TV.  She reiterates that she will indeed be on the show during Season 5, but has no idea in what way, shape or form.

During the interview, she admits:

“I don’t know if she’s alive or dead. And, I mean, half my head has been blown off, so, you know… They haven’t told me anything. We rarely know anything until we get the script. So, as an actor I’m terrified. I’m very excited, but I’m very nervous.”

Find out what else she has to say, and who she always thought Tara should end up with, in the video below:

What do you reckon?  Vampire?  Ghost?  Vegetable?!  Oh, with True Blood, the possibilities are endless.

  • Her character is pivotal to the series and I hope she, Tara gets to be happy somehow……

    Is she going to be the Bubba (for those who have read the books) character??  Maybe an angel?  Lots to think about in the next 9 months.

      Hi jaxx, That would be awful it they made Tara into a Bubba type character. It would be unfair to the character. I know many people dislike Tara but I always wanted her to find happiness. They made her into the eternal victim though. The only thing I can think of it Tara getting turned, Lala saving her with his magic/healing powers, or her becoming a ghost. This must be stressful for Rutina. Sookie has already lost so many people and to lose her best friend to would be terrible.
