February 10, 2010 by  

Several members of the True Blood cast were interviewed in yet another video taken at the SAG Awards. Amongst those were Deborah Ann Woll (Jessica Hamby), Alexander Skarsgard (Eric Northman), Mariana Klaveno (Lorena), and Mehcad Brooks (Eggs).

There were several small topics discussed in the video. First was about being at the SAGs. In that portion of the video, Deborah said “I think I was most excited about seeing my boyfriend in his fabulous suit. We’re such jeans and t-shirts kind of people that it’s nice to see him gussied up a bit.”

Alex talked directly about the SAG awards, commenting, “[It’s] very humbling… Amazing. Very flattering to be nominated.”

Mariana talked about how the SAGs allow actors to see their peers. She said, “It’s a little surreal. I just passed by Betty White and Joan Allen and I’m a little starstruck.”

The next section of the video was about how and when different actors got their SAG cards (you must have a speaking line in something before you are eligible to get it). Alex played the joker in this section of the video. His response “I thought you were going to say ‘When did you get this tall?'” was rather amusing!

Mariana said she got her SAG card because [she] was blown up on Alias. (I’m sure I’m not the only one who wants to see her character on True Blood have the same thing happen to her!)

Another portion of the video had the stars talking about the SAG Awards as a whole. Mehcad had this to say: “It’s us… You know it’s us voting for each other, it’s us patting ourselves on the back, it’s us respecting each other for work that we really appreciate and connect to.”

Alex‘s comment was more about being around the cast of True Blood than the SAG Awards themselves. He said, “It sounds kind of boring but I’m actually really excited because it’s seventeen of us in the cast—we’re all here tonight and we don’t—we never work together because there’s so many storylines going on on the show… I’m actually quite excited to hang out with the whole group tonight.”

In the final part of the video, which showed some various show casts with their awards, there is a two-second glimpse of Patrick Gallagher (Vampire Chow) saying “Thank you, thank you” for winning his award for his work on GLEE.

This is a rather long video (around 11 minutes), but just to see the cast of True Blood makes watching the whole thing worth it! After all, who doesn’t enjoy seeing actors we all love dressed to the nines?
