True Blood Season 7: Will Pam and Tara Hook Up?

September 1, 2013

Or Will Pam Continue Her Search For Eric Northman?

Kristin Bauer van Straten (Pam) and Rutina Wesley (Tara) star in HBO's True Blood Season 6

At he end of HBO’s True Blood Season 5 we saw a passionate kiss between Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) and her newly made progeny, Tara Thornton (Rutina Wesley). In Season 6, with all the separation between the two of them at vamp camp and a Pam who announced early on in the season that their relationship was not going to be a love story, things looked grim for the hot new pair.

But what about in True Blood’s Season 7? Could their romance bloom now they are free from the claustrophobic environment of vamp camp? Could being able to (briefly) walk in the sun bring them closer together? Or will Pam spend the entire season looking for her maker, Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard)?

Michael Ausiello from TVLine got the opportunity to ask True Blood’s newest showrunner, Brian Buckner, about where the relationship between Pam and Tara is headed. Here is what Buckner had to say:

As the audience heard Pam say in Episode 1, life is long — especially for vampires. She also told Tara that this is not going to be a love story. But I would urge [fans] to be patient. Because if the show delivers on the audience’s expectation every week, that’s not storytelling. Where’s the surprise in that? These [story] threads can be picked up later. I want to be able to tell more interesting, circuitous stories at times and not always deliver on the junk-food promise of the show.

Well, isn’t that interesting? It seems we just have to be a little more patient in this department, but it sure sounds promising.

What do you think? Are you loving the Pam and Tara snark combined into the one relationship? Let us know in the comments below.

True Blood’s Alex Skarsgård Has Praise for Co-Stars

May 22, 2012

HBO’s Viking Vamp Dishes On Castmates:

Alexander Skarsgård as Eric NorthmanWith the return of True Blood for Season 5 on June 10, and the release of ‘Battleship’ into theaters on May 18, fans of Alexander Skarsgård (Eric Northman) will have much to enjoy this summer.

Skarsgård’s film, ‘Battleship’, also marks the acting debut of singer Rhianna. Skarsgård shares several scenes with her and says he was not at all surprised at how easily she took to acting.

“I was honestly not surprised. Just like, watching her on stage, or her videos, you can tell [from] her energy and her charisma and personality, you know that she’s gonna be great in that part. I knew that and she really is.”

New to the cast of True Blood for Season 5, but making his return to HBO, is Chris Meloni (Oz, Law & Order: SVU). Skarsgård regards Meloni, who plays Vampire Authority member Roman, as a great addition to the cast.

“It wasn’t easy. His first day was basically him coming in. It was five pages of dialogue. Half of it was in Aramaic. That was like, ‘Welcome to the show, Chris.’ But he’s a trooper, a really amazing actor – obviously — and a great guy. We’ve had a lot of fun together on the show.”

It’s no secret that Skarsgård and True Blood co-star, Kristin Bauer Van Straten (Pamela DeBeaufort) have always held one another in very high regard.  A recent teaser video, released by HBO, gives us a peek at a scene that might indicate a rift between the Viking Vampire Eric Northman and his progeny, Pam. Does Eric release his child? Do they find a way to ‘kiss and make up’? What do you think?

True Blood Season 5: Death, Lube, and Drinks

March 26, 2012

What a Normal Day on the Set of True Blood is Like:

Wall of True DeathSo we know that HBO’s True Blood isn’t your normal, average, everyday kind of show. If it were, True Blood definitely wouldn’t be the phenomenon it is today.  The production office has a Wall of True Death so they can keep track of those Bon Temps residents that are among the dearly departed.

Set costumers design quite the fantasy-oriented clothing for True Blood cast members — this includes lubing up Pam de Beaufort’s latex outfit.

Latex and Lubricant

Do you ever think about how the prop department keeps track of all the drinks being served at Fangtasia and Merlotte’s? Well now we know the process doesn’t look all that sophisticated! Seeing these pictures reminds me that we are that much closer to Season 5!

Creating True Blood’s Pam de Beaufort’s Decomposing Face

October 31, 2011

How Pam’s Zombie Look Was Achieved:

Kristin as rotting PamSpecial FX Producer, Dan Rebert, gave us a little behind-the-scenes look at how HBO’s True Blood’s Pam de Beaufort’s decomposing/zombie look was created. Five stages were used throughout the whole process.

The first stage is composed of three tiny stages of make-up. Subtle pieces of make-up began the transformation and a visual effects reveal acted as a catalyst to continue the disfiguration. The second stage is composed of a face peel, where the skin on Pam’s face can be ripped off. A nose piece and dental piece were created as well. The third stage ignited Pam’s healing. The fourth stage signals Pam’s skin renewal, also known as what she looks like after the surgical wrap and face peel mask have been completely removed. The fifth and final stage is the tattoos that show the muscles and veins as Pam is healing.

Rebert said:

“The stuff we did on Pam was probably some of my favorite stuff we’ve done for True Blood…actually [Kristin Bauer] told me that running in heels in the woods was way worse than wearing any of the make-up.”

Hey Truebies, to get a great visual image of the transformation, check out the video!

“I’ve been working with the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine to speak out against chimpanzee experiments in the United States. We now have an opportunity to protect all chimpanzees in captivity in the U.S.”

True Blood’s Kristin Bauer van Straten on Playing Pam

October 23, 2011

Sink Your Teeth into the Real Pam de Beaufort:

Kristin Bauer van Straten as Pam de BeaufortKristin Bauer van Straten, who plays the cold-hearted and ferocious vampire Pam de Beaufort on HBO’s True Blood, loves playing Bon Temps’ biggest and baddest bitch. Bauer, who was not familiar with the show before she got the role, still gets recognized as Jerry’s girlfriend from the hit TV show Seinfeld.

On how her life has changed since True Blood started airing:

“Well, I now have to shower and wear some makeup to go to Starbucks. I have to borrow a little from Pam — be a tad more vain, as I could never say, “no” to a fan wanting a photo because I’m not wearing mascara. And I get asked my thoughts on things and I have lots to say about rights and free will, especially regarding animals, as they are truly innocent and voiceless.”

On her favorite True Blood character(s) to mingle with:

“I am very partial to my maker, Eric [played by Alexander Skarsgård]. But I also have gotten to threaten Lafayette, flirt with Sookie, scowl at Bill, try to kill Tara a few times, ignore Ginger‘s screams, check out Jason and give horrible advice to Jessica.”

So how does she do Pam so well? The actress says she tries to be as dry and sarcastic as possible, but she credits her work environment for most of her success. She says that after spending up to five hours in hair, makeup and costume, then walking onto True Blood’s beautiful sets with its wonderful actors, that it just all comes together — Pam is born.

Truebies, don’t we all love Pam? What’s your favorite thing about her? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
