riley smithTVRage recently spoke to Riley Smith about his new role of vampire, Keith in True Blood Season 7 who provides a tease of what we can expect from the show’s final season.

SPOILER ALERT!

In the interview, Riley talks about a major event that occurs in Episode 4 and it’s going to be a big situation. Episode 4 was a huge — I think it was like a 25-day shoot for us. There’s a huge fight and a lot of the main characters are in some serious trouble…

TVRage: What can you tell us about your character?
Riley Smith: I’m playing Keith, who’s the new vampire for the seventh and final season. I’m going to get introduced in Episode 4 and then I’ll be with the show for the remainder of the season. Right now we’re actually filming Episode 5. I’m also going to be Arlene’s love interest, played by Carrie Preston, and I think that’s pretty much all I can talk about at this point.

TVRage: It’s also been released that you’re in a band, which I think a vampire rock ‘n’ roll band sounds pretty much like the best idea ever. Is there a real life human band you can compare yourselves to? Are you the un-dead Beatles or Rolling Stones?
Smith: You know what, the funny thing is, they made a big deal about that when they announced the character, but I haven’t even seen an instrument since I got here. There was one reference to me being in a band and then that was it. There’s been no other mention of it sense. I actually asked because I was going to take drum lessons. I’m supposedly a drummer, so I was like, ‘Should I take some drum lessons or anything?’ and they were like, no I don’t know if we’ll ever even see you in a band.

TVRage: That was going to be my next question, if we were going to get to see you play.
Smith: That would be awesome. I was kinda hoping for it, but I don’t know if it’s going to happen. It was more of a backstory…when I get introduced it sets it up like, ‘Hey, this is Keith here and he’s in my band.’ That’s literally the only mention that we’ve had and I’ve been shooting this for two months now.

TVRage: And like you mentioned before, Keith is immediately attracted to Arlene upon seeing her. Can you give any hints as to how the two of you first meet?
Smith: We meet on a mission where the vampires are trying to save some of the cast that are in trouble. That is how Keith and Arlene meet. Keith is saving Arlene from a serious situation and that’s their meet-cute, so to speak. And that’s what kind of brings Keith into that world.

I don’t know how much the audience knows so far about what’s going on, but there’s a big part of the first three episodes of Season 7 that’s leading up to this major thing that occurs in Episode 4 and it’s going to be a big situation. Episode 4 was a huge — I think it was like a 25-day shoot for us. There’s a huge fight and a lot of the main characters are in some serious trouble, so I’m recruited by James [played by Nathan Parsons] to come help and that’s what introduces Arlene and Keith. And that’s how they meet and they create their own relationship, which we’re just now starting to get into.

TVRage: What was it that initially attracted you to this particular role?
Smith: I have always wanted to play a vampire. I’ve always wanted to have fangs and was running out of time on this show, so the opportunity was perfect. They’re in the last season and this role kind of came up out of nowhere. I’m on hold right now for a TV pilot, a potential series that I did at the end of last year called ‘Deliverance Creek,’ written by Nicholas Sparks Productions. So I can’t really do anything contractually anyway until we find out if this show gets picked up, so I was just hanging out making music.

Then it just so happened that the casting directors of my pilot also cast ‘True Blood.’ They called in like the twelfth hour and said we think you’re perfect for this role. If they want you, we will make it contractually work out and I went in literally the next morning. I had no time to study. I went in, met with all the creators of ‘True Blood,’ did a couple scenes for them, and before I even got home I got a call and they said the show was yours…Literally, the next day I was in a wardrobe fitting. It was like, 48 hours before that I hadn’t even thought about being on the show, and now I’m the new vampire, so it happened very fast.

TVRage: Have you always been a fan of the show?
Smith: I have, yeah, but like anything, I got busy and lost track of some of the episodes, so basically that first weekend after I got the job, I spent the entire weekend in front of my TV catching up and re-familiarizing myself with the show and the characters and the storylines. It’s been a whirlwind, but it’s been great just be apart of it, especially the last season of a show like this. I feel like anybody who’s ever watched it, is going to watch the last season to see how it ends. And we have so many great storylines for the last season, I think everybody is going to be ecstatic with how it turns out.

hboprimeCould this be the beginning of the end of Cable’s hold on HBO?  We’ve just learned of a new licensing agreement between Amazon and HBO makes Prime Instant Video for the exclusive online-only subscription home for a range of HBO programming, including previous seasons of True Blood.

This means that you can get your True Blood streamed to your favorite device without a cable subscription! This is huge since HBO has never streamed their content other than on their own HBO GO!

So, for the first time ever, HBO series such as The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, The Wire, Big Love, Deadwood, Eastbound & Down, Family Tree, Enlightened, Treme, early seasons of True Blood and Boardwalk Empire as well as mini-series like Band of Brothers, John Adams and more will be available on Amazon Prime Instant Video. Previous seasons of other HBO shows, such as Girls, The Newsroom and Veep will become available over the course of the multiyear agreement, approximately three years after airing on HBO.

This is also the first time that HBO programming has been licensed to an online-only subscription streaming service. This programming will remain on all HBO platforms. Additionally, HBO GO will become available on Fire TV, targeting a launch by year-end.

HBO has produced some of the most groundbreaking, beloved and award-winning shows in television history, with more than 115 Emmys amongst the assortment of shows coming to Prime members next month,” said Brad Beale, the director of content acquisition for Amazon. “HBO original content is some of the most-popular across Amazon Instant Video—our customers love watching these shows. Now Prime members can enjoy a collection of great HBO shows on an unlimited basis, at no additional cost to their Prime membership.”

“Amazon has built a wonderful service—we are excited to have our programming made available to their vast customer base and believe the exposure will create new HBO subscribers,” said Charles Schreger, the president of programming sales for HBO.

“As owners of our original programming, we have always sought to capitalize on that investment. Given our longstanding relationship with Amazon, we couldn’t think of a better partner to entrust with this valuable collection,” said Glenn Whitehead, the executive VP of business and legal affairs at HBO. “We’re also excited to bring HBO GO to Amazon’s Fire TV. The features like unified voice search will provide a compelling experience for HBO customers.”

Beginning May 21, Amazon Prime members will have unlimited streaming access to:

  • All seasons of revered classics such as The Sopranos, The Wire, Deadwood, Rome and Six Feet Under, and of recent favorites such as Eastbound & Down, Enlightened andFlight of the Conchords
  • Epic miniseries, including Angels in America, Band of Brothers, John Adams, The Pacific and Parade’s End
  • Select seasons of current series such as Boardwalk Empire, Treme and True Blood
  • Hit original movies like Game Change, Too Big To Fail and You Don’t Know Jack
  • Pedigreed documentaries including the Autopsy and Iceman series, Ghosts of Abu Ghraib and When the Levees Broke
  • Hilarious original comedy specials from Lewis Black, Ellen DeGeneres, Louis CK and Bill Maher

The multi-year deal will bring additional seasons of the current series named above, along with early seasons of other series like Girls, The Newsroom and Veep to Prime members over the life of the deal.

newssquare3Fox UK has announced the day that True Blood Season 7 will premiere in the UK. The UK premiere is slated for Monday July 7th at 9pm.

The announcement of the premiere date comes after we posted FOX UK announcement earlier this month that they would be airing the show’s final season in July, instead of the usual Autumn slot for True Blood. The move to air the show’s final season just two weeks behind its US broadcast is designed to draw more viewers to FOX UK and potentially reduce piracy and follows similar strategies employed for The Walking Dead and Louie.

Posted by Lynnpd On April - 22 - 20144 COMMENTS

Cute video about the embarrassment of watching True Blood with your parents. Very funny, but what about all those mother’s out there who watch? I’d say that it goes both ways, don’t you?

However, whoever you are, for a more private viewing of our favorite show, there’s always HBO GO!

True Blood’s Ryan Kwanten arrived at Surrender Nightclub around the stroke of midnight last Saturday night with two female friends and three male buddies including close friend Rex Lee from HBO’s “Entourage.”

A capacity crowd turned out for Diplo on Saturday night when the superstar DJ double dipped at Encore Las Vegas with a daytime set at Encore Beach Club — subbing for a mending Avicii — and then spinning another set on Sunday night at Surrender Nightclub.

Ryan and his friends sat at a table in the gaming area then, after vodka cocktails were poured, dispersed with some hitting the blackjack and craps tables while Kwanten and fellow Diplo fanatics made their way to the dance floor, where they moved to hits including the twerk anthem ”Bubble Butt” by Major Lazer.

Below is an article from the May 2014 issues of Movie Entertainment magazine with Kristin Bauer van Straten. This is Canada’s cable network magazine which had Stephen Moyer on the over year before last.

In this issue, Kristin Bauer van Straten talks about leaving behind one of the most memorable roles she’ll ever get to play and how every year she tries to figure out what the writers will come up with. However, if the experience has taught her anything it’s not to underestimate the writers.

She says:

During hiatus, I always come up with where I think the show could or should go, then when I read the scripts it’s always so much better than what I imagined.

Kristin even talks about the possibility of True Blood moving onto the big screen. Do you think that could be possible? Leave us  your thoughts in the comments below.

Read the rest of what Kristin has to say about her role of Pam and the final season of True Blood below.
