Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer and Alexander Skarsgard Reminisce:

True Blood Farewell Special on HBOWhile fans are gearing up for True Blood Season 7, HBO has released a True Blood special promo that just might help ease the way as fans lament over the show’s demise. On Sunday June 15th at 8.30pm, fans can tune into HBO for a Farewell to Bon Temps special.

While a lot of the footage in this clip is from past episodes, there are still a few gems hidden. Alan Ball (the show’s original show runner) talks about why people love vampires so much, Stephen Moyer (Bill Compton) talks about falling in love and Kristin Bauer van Straten (who plays vampire Pam) talks about the difficulty with using different languages on True Blood.

But the true surprise is the fact that Alexander Skarsgard (who plays Eric Northman) FINALLY gets some air time. Previously, every promo has excluded the viking vampire, leaving fans wondering just how and when this character will be portrayed in True Blood Season 7. Not only do we get a visual of the tall blonde actor, but we get these words of wisdom:

It’s going to be very emotional, this final season.
