November 25, 2012

Check out what Sam’s lady love, Luna, will be up to in the near future:

janina-gavankar tv fanatic comSince HBO’s True Blood season 5 finale ended in multiple shocks, we still aren’t quite sure what will happen to Sam’s (Sam Trammell) love Luna, played by Janina Gavankar. Since she shifted into a human, usually a shapeshifter won’t live after. We saw this with Sam’s younger brother, Tommy (Marshall Allman).

What we do know is that it has been confirmed that Gavankar has secured a multi-arc role in the new CW show, Arrow. She will portray a vice cop described as “tough, sexy, and considerably formidable.”

What do you think, Truebies? Will we see Luna survive next season? Will you tune in to Arrow to see  Gavankar? To find out more, check out the link below!

True Blood’s Michael McMillian Talks Playing a Preacher-turned-Vampire

October 23, 2012

Reverend Steve Newlin goes from L.O.D. to The Authority:

Michael McMillian as True Blood's Steve newlinMichael McMillian, who is known for portraying the anti-vampire reverend Steve Newlin on HBO’s True Blood, had his character turned upside down when it was revealed that Newlin had been turned into what he hated most: a vampire! On top of that, he proudly confessed to Jason Stackhouse that he is a gay American vampire…and that he was in love with him.

McMillian spent most of the season hanging around Russell Edgington played by Denis O’Hare, causing mayhem and destruction. However, we have yet to find out who is maker is.

One thing many True Blood fans don’t know, is that McMillian is one of the writers of the True Blood comic book series. He has published comic books for two years now.

McMillian on playing a villain:

I just loved the idea of playing this right-wing Christian evangelist who hated vampires. It was such an out-there idea and such a great character, but also something that I thought was really relatable and really relevant to today. It was a really fun, satirical role.”

Did he know he would be back for Season 5?

“No, I didn’t know for sure. All I knew was that I hadn’t been killed and that’s usually a good sign on True Blood. If your character hasn’t met the true death, there’s a good chance you could make it back.”

True Blood’s Deborah Ann Woll talks on playing vampire Jessica

August 20, 2012

What Deborah Ann Woll has to say about her character:

Deborah Ann Woll stars as Jessica Hamby in HBO's True BloodDeborah Ann Woll plays vampire Jessica Hamby on HBO’s supernatural hit True Blood. She took some time out of her busy schedule to talk about what it’s like to play a vampire. Woll notes that while Jessica goes through a lot of turmoil, she does get some happiness in between all of the chaos and trouble.

When asked if she ever said; “my character would never say that” to the writers, Woll answered:

“I came up doing classical theater. And when the playwrights are dead, you can’t really argue with them.”

Woll is busy advocating for a cure for choroideremia, a eye disease that causes people to lose their vision slowly until it is completely gone, that her boyfriend, EJ Scott, has. Scott, who Woll met on Match.com, says her boyfriend was legally blind when they met and she loves him desperately.

Woll, who is five feet 10 inches without heels, said she was very lucky to have the role that she has and loves the people she works with.

Moyer and his mate Bertie Portal made a video for all of the participating fans who helped fundraise and support Facing the Atlantic.

On the fundraiser, AllStephenMoyer said:

“Facing the Atlantic is the most thrilling fundraiser we have done so far. It was exciting to follow the journey of Bertie and James, with all its ups and downs and we couldn’t have been more happy when they set foot on Barbados after 63 days on the Atlantic Ocean.”

In an email, Moyer said:

“…finally – FINALLY – I have had to reload the whole bloody thing. Can’t thank you guys enough for everything you and everyone on your respective websites have managed to raise…
Bert is gobsmacked by the level of commitment you put in…
I’m at work, and have just spent the entire last hour and a half trying to load this again, so now I’m off many thanks again.
See you all soon
Steve
…There is a glitch in the middle of the video where we were discussing how much money you lot had raised which I didn’t realise hadn’t recorded until I was back in the US… bloody annoying.”

Thanks for all of the help Truebies! Don’t forget (wait, how could you?) season 5 of True Blood premieres on June 10.

April 20, 2012

Our Fave Werewolf Drops in on Author at Book Signing:

Joe Manganiello HBO promoIt is probably a safe assumption to say that the many True Blood fans have heard of world famous, American horror author Anne Rice. Mrs. Rice is known for her vamp fiction works, including Interview with the Vampire, one of her most famous works. She has brought the world of vamp fiction to the lives of millions of people and she continues to turn out work at a steady pace. Her newest novel, The Wolf Gift, depicts the story of Ruben Golding, a San Fransisco journalist who is turned into a werewolf. As a fan of Mrs. Rice, True Blood’s Joe Manganiello, who plays werewolf Alcide Herveaux was excited to take the opportunity to drop in on the author at a recent book signing.

Mrs. Rice was completely surprised and they both appeared to be quite big fans of each other’s work. Manganiello towered over nearly everyone in the book store as he surprised fans and walked Mrs. Rice to the stage. He’s so tall! Check out the videos below:

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!
