Video: True Blood’s Pam is “Completely Unapologetic”

August 26, 2011

Kristin Bauer Dishes on her ‘Meaty’ Vampire Role:

PamSeason4TrueBloodSpellboundThe beautiful and self described “softie” Kristin Bauer Van Straten sat down with Wired during Comic-Con, sharing with us about her her role as Vampire Pam.

“Pam is the most unapologetic vampire. She’s happy to be a vampire, she was done with humanity, so it’s a very clear, simple character as opposed to being myself – you know, human. Everything is so complex, nothing is black and white in our lives. For Pam it’s very black or white.”

But is Kristin like her character Pam? She explains:

“I am such a softie, I cry about 30 times a day and somehow to play this relentless bitch is so much fun. I can’t even explain that to you.”

It’s easy to see that Pam doesn’t have to watch her words, or worry about being accepted. Even with her rotting face this season, Pam – and Kristin – take the Witchs’ spell in stride.

“It was really challenging, but really meaty for me – no pun intended.”

Check out the full interview below:

Be sure to watch True Blood this Sunday at 9pm on HBO for a dose of Unapologetic Pam!

Will True Blood’s Alcide and Debbie Last?

August 17, 2011

Joe Manganiello Dishes on Werewolf Relationships:

It’s the burning question on the minds of many True Blood fans – What made Alcide take the previously crazy and drug addicted Debbie back? Joe Manganiello recently spoke to Digital Spy about his character Alcide and what’s going on with his relationship with Debbie (Brit Morgan).

After extensive character research, Manganiello discovered that real wolves actually secrete a chemical that ties into mating for life.

“So I thought about that, and I thought about how difficult it must be for them to separate. And also growing up as a werewolf and living hidden from society, you can’t open up to normal people. You couldn’t just go out on a date with a human girl and tell her who you were unless you were really sure.”

Sounds like a tough situation Joe, we agree. But what about all of the heartache and pain Debbie caused Alcide in Season 3? Joe explained:

“Debbie’s obviously tried to make amends for her past transgressions and done so in such a convincing manner that Alcide would give her another shot. So obviously only time will tell how good of a job she does, or how consistent of a job she does.”

Do you think Alcide and Debbie will last? Let us know in the comment section below!

Manganiello Answers: Do Werewolves Wear Underwear?

August 12, 2011

Dishing on an Alcide-Sookie Romance, Raw Meat on Set, and ‘The Sock’:

Joe Manganiello as alcide-true-blood-season-4-episode-4True Blood star Joe Manganiello (Alcide) recently chatted with Access Hollywood Live, dishing on plenty of behind the scene details. And the answer to hosts Billy Bush’s and Kate Walsh’s burning question:

“No, werewolves do not wear underwear.”

But they do wear ‘The Sock’. For those not familiar, the infamous sock is worn on set by male cast members for health purposes and modesty.

Manganiello also dished on the possibility of an AlcideSookie romance. While Sookie (Anna Paquin) is currently in fang deep with amnesiac Vampire Sheriff Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård), we’ve got to wonder if it will last? The actor weighed in:

“Obviously my character’s very close and she (Sookie) has stuff going on with Eric right now, but as you can see from the last episode, the ghost of her grandmother channeled through this medium (Marnie) and told her to not give her heart to the guy she may be falling in love with. So obviously, the door’s still open.”

We’ve got to wonder – what does this mean for Alcide and Debbie?

Aside from romances, Joe shared insight on the real wolves on set:

“Here’s the thing, when the wolf is present and they bring them out on big thick chains… My brother jokingly said he was gonna sneak into my trailer and switch out my sock for a sausage casing. But there’s literally a trainer standing in back of me, waving raw meat at this thing to get it to look at me… and I’m naked.”

As soon as you’re done wiping the drool off your face, tell us Truebies — do you see a future for Alcide and Sookie?

Tanya Wright’s Butterfly Rising

April 29, 2011

Sharing During a BlogTalkRadio Interview:

Butterfly Rising by Tanya WrightMany know Tanya Wright from her role as Deputy Kenya Jones on True Blood, but what you may not know is that in addition to acting she’s also a writer and director. Published last year, Tanya’s book “Butterfly Rising” is a poetic inspirational story about friendship and courage. The film of her screenplay, Butterfly Rising, marks her directorial debut. BlogTalkRadio host, Cyrus Webb recently interview Tanya to discuss her acting career, new book, and film.

“The story is about two women who have had enough of their small town life and they’ve set out on the open road to meet this mythical medicine man named Lazarus of the Butterflies. And it is their hope that their dreams will come true. Ultimately they do, not in the way that they think however. And I think that’s true of life and certainly of all of us. We have an idea of how things should be, or how we would like them to be. And when those things happen, they sometimes don’t look the way that we think they would, or even should.”

When asked by interviewer Cyrus Webb what she hopes the audience takes away with them, Tanya replied:

“Well, the visual metaphor for the book and the movie is the butterfly. The butterfly is the symbol for change. It’s the symbol for metamorphosis. It’s the symbol for transformation. And it’s something that we will not, any of us, escape in this life – change. Good, bad or indifferent. So I hope that people embrace change in their lives. And more easily as a result of this movie.”

The world premiere of the film Butterfly Rising will be held May 8th at the Langston Hughes African American Film Festival in Seattle.

The complete interview can be heard Here.  And for more information on the the film, visit Here.

Book Signing:

Fans in New York City had a great opportunity to meet with Wright on April 9, 2011. She was at the Hue-Man Bookstore for a book signing and movie preview for Butterfly Rising.  A friend of was able to attend and take pictures of the event (see below photo). Wright also met with fans in Washington D.C. at Howard University on the 19th for a book signing and discussion.

Spoilers! What’s in Store for Season 4?

April 19, 2011

The Inside Scoop on Sam, Tara, Hoyt and Jessica:

Waiting does suck, but spoilers sure do make it easier! Thanks to Eonline and ClevverTV we’ve got a few new teasers to pass along. Who will fall in love? Who will find happiness? And who will do some father-daughter bonding?


Sam Trammell as Sam Merlotte in True BloodIs love in the air for Sam in Season 4? Well, maybe. Sam Trammel (Sam Merlotte) does admit his character will be getting a new love interest, but how long it will last is a mystery. In the past, the ladies romantically involved with Sam didn’t last long. Let’s hope the new lady in his life survives. Regarding the show, he also adds it will:

“Explore the shape shifter community a little bit more, so there’s going to be a lot of cool mythological stuff.”


Rutina Wesley as Tara Thornton True BloodIt seems things might be getting better this season for Tara. Quality time with her best friend Sookie is sure to help. But in true Tara fashion, things won’t be rosy for long. And on top of it all Tara will spend some time thinking about Sam Merlotte and his shape-shifting ways.



Jessica & Hoyt

Jessica and Hoyt True BloodCan their blossoming relationship stay perfect for much longer? Deborah Ann Woll (Jessica Hamby) dished on Jessica and Hoyt, admitting that the first two episodes will pick up with “a bit more trouble happening.” On the bright side it seems Jessica will finally get some much needed mentorship from Bill.

Spoiler: True Blood’s Lindsay Pulsipher Dishes on Season 4

April 13, 2011

Crystal Norris to Reveal it All?

Lindsay Pulsipher as Crystal Norris in True BloodWe’re still weeks away from Season 4 of True Blood, but luckily there’s no shortage of spoilers for die hard fans! Recently, Eonline‘s Marc Malkin caught up with Lindsay Pulsipher at the Humane Society’s Genesis Awards in Los Angeles. And while she wouldn’t reveal much, when asked if we’d be seeing her “au natural” this season, and if so would it be a scene with Ryan Kwanten (Jason Stackhouse) Lindsay replied with a laugh:

“Let’s just say that is water under the bridge. That’s all that I could give you.”

Lindsay went on to talk about the two amazing panthers used on the show.

“They’re great, but you can’t really touch them. The trainers have really strict rules about what you can and can’t do. They’re just so majestic and so silently powerful.”

Eonline also caught up with True Blood’s Carrie Preston (Arlene Fowler) at the Awards. And much like Lindsay, she was tightlipped.

“I can’t say anything other than it’s bigger and crazier than ever. You know, we went pretty far even in the pilot, but somehow they go farther and farther and keep it going.”

Sounds like a crazy Season 4 is in store for fans and we cannot wait!
