True Blood’s Final Act- Season 4 Losses

September 24, 2011

The Characters We Lost This Season on True Blood:

Kevin Alejandro as Jesus Season 4 finaleIt’s not a foreign concept that the writers of HBO’s True Blood aren’t shy about racking up the body count during an episode. And the season four finale is nothing short of an extraordinary bloodbath. A number of reoccurring characters met their demise. Let’s take a look at them and remember their final moments.

Jesus Velasquez
Played by: Kevin Alejandro

On his character’s death, Kevin Alejandro said:

“I found out Jesus was going to die around the first episode, and they were really cool about it, like ‘This is nothing you did. Happy relationships are just boring.’ And they’re right- it makes for great drama. I think the final episode is going to be really touching.”

Jessica Tuck as Nan FlanaganNan Flanagan
Played by: Jessica Tuck

On her death scene, Jessica Tuck said:

“There ain’t no way back from the True Death. Plus, the one good thing about being shown the True Death is that when you squirt with blood, you’re not the one who gets covered with it- it’s everyone that’s in your way. Stephen Moyer drove a stake through my heart, but I then got him back by just covering him in gooey blood.”

Debbie Pelt
Played by: Brit Morgan

Brit Morgan as Debbie Pelt S4Ep11On her death scene, Brit Morgan said:

“…It was so cool because I got to fire a real gun, and they had my brains on the wall with Debbie’s hair in it…Plus every time Anna [Paquin] and I get to fight, it’s just awesome- a punch, a fall. It’s by far the most fun I’ve ever had.”

Tara Thorton
Played by: Rutina Wesley

Rutina Wesley as Tara ThorntonOn her death scene, Rutina Wesley said:

“Shooting that scene was very hard and emotional. I think everybody on set shed a tear that day; it was really tough to get through. When you see someone that you’ve lived with and breathed with for four years come to some kind of end, it’s very powerful- and sad. It’s really hard to play dead when you’re about to cry.”

R.I.P. Tommy, Marnie, Jesus, Nan, Debbie, (and Tara…?)

True Blood’s Jessica Tuck Opens Up About Nan Flanagan

April 6, 2011

True Blood's Jessica Tuck talks about her alter ego Nan Flanagan

Inside True Blood Interviewed Tuck on April 1

Jessica Tuck plays Nan Flanagan, the never speechless (well, unless you pull a King of Mississippi and you wrench someone’s heart out of their chest on live TV) and always fearless spokesperson for the American Vampire League on HBO‘s hit drama True Blood. Flanagan is one of those characters that you don’t always see much of, but when you do, her scenes always stand out. Tuck sat down with Inside True Blood blog‘s writer Gianna Sobol and talked about the fans, life as Nan,and Team Eric vs. Team Bill.

Best Fan Reaction:

“It was very early on in the show, I was at home visiting my family in New York. And New Yorkers don’t really react to actors; I’ve never gotten recognized in the city. People don’t care, they walk around minding their own business. But this guy walked up to me and said “Oh my god! You’re Nan! I love you, man!” And he gave me this huge hug, then kept on walking. And I thought that was so much fun, he dug Nan and that was really nice.”

The Upside of Playing Nan:

“The fact that she has two sides – that upscale, sophisticated Diane Sawyer spokesperson-y side, and then her crass, bitchy…side. I love that I get to play the two extremes.”

Cons of Being Out of the Coffin:

“As the spokesperson for the American Vampire League, I have to behave myself, and that is so boring. I have to tow the party line, though like many of my kind, I fall off the wagon every once in a while.”

Favorite True Blood scene?

“I had a couple of scenes with Alexander Skarsgård, where I got to say things like, “Listen, you whiny little bitch.” It just makes me laugh that he’s ten feet tall and could take me out with the flick of his finger, and I get to scream and yell and threaten him. I had a good time, giving him a piece of my mind.”

Team Eric or Team Bill?

“What do you mean? Where’s the option of Team Nan? I’m not on anyone’s team. They’re on mine… if they’re lucky.”

What do you think Nan will be up to in season four, Truebies? More of the same? Or will we maybe see a different side to the spokesperson?
