Lindsay Pulsipher Describes Jason’s New Love Interest

February 16, 2010 by  

True Blood‘s Lindsay Pulsipher gives fans some insight into Crystal Norris, Jason Stackhouse‘s Season 3 love interest, in an interview posted on

The actress, who starred alongside the late Patrick Swayze in A&E‘s “The Beast,” describes what it is like to be the new girl in Bon Temps.

“Coming into True Blood, especially now, when it’s a really established show with a huge fan base and with the caliber of people that are running the show, it’s definitely different. I’d be lying, if I said I wasn’t a little intimidated to come into the show.”

She said her first day on the show was “a little bit like starting your first day of high school,” but her nervousness dissipated upon meeting the cast and crew, who she described as nice, welcoming, friendly and professional.

Lindsay remained enigmatic when describing her character’s story line and first encounter with Jason:

“She’s a mysterious girl. She does encounter Jason Stackhouse, in a funny way, and they have this amazing connection, and it goes from there.”

She was more forthcoming with praise for her co-star, Ryan Kwanten:

Ryan auditioned with me and he’s an amazing actor. He’s extremely giving, spontaneous and innovative, and he’s super-humble and almost shy. I’m blown away by how great he is.”

Lindsay played secret agent Rose Lawrence on “The Beast,” a character she described as strong and self-aware. The character was a departure for Lindsay, who said she has “always played the girl in distress or a really emotional character that was going through a lot.” She said it was fun to play Rose, a girl who “was very put-together and knew what she wanted in life.”

Lindsay said she also enjoyed working with Patrick Swayze.

“He was so inspiring, coming to set, knowing what he was going through, physically and with his health. It just inspired me to do the best that I could do. He couldn’t have been any more amazing. He just really gave everything.”

Fans can view episodes of “The Beast” on Crackle, the online video network for Sony Pictures Entertainment.

Lindsay also plays opposite “24” alum Eric Balfour in “Do Not Disturb,” a series of short films about incidents that happen in the same hotel room over time. Her segment, “Rocketman” was directed by Petro Papahadjopoulos and has a sci-fi element to it, she said.
