Fans will be happy and heartbroken by True Blood’s end

Posted by Lynnpd On March - 21 - 2014

ameliaroseblaireTrue Blood actress Amelia Rose Blaire was recently interviewed by Uinterview where she projected a tiny hint about what True Blood’s final season will bring.

During the interview, Amelia also spoke about her character Willa and what its like working with Alexander Skarsgård. She said it was something of a coup for her, as he was not only nice too look at, but provided some humor to their scenes together. Asked to describe him, Blaire called him “goofy.

“He’s really goofy! He’s really goofy and always likes to make a lot of jokes,” she told Uinterview. “So he’s a lot of fun to work with and of course he’s very, very tall. He’s like 6’5” or something, so he’s definitely a figure to behold, but he’s really nice and really down to earth. And he drives a really nice car!”

Although she’s not certain about what will become of her character in True Blood’s final season, she believes that the show itself will end in typical True Blood fashion.

The end of True Blood is going to make fans very happy and heartbroken at the same time,” the actress revealed. “Because that’s what True Blood does best.”

The Vault also provided an exclusive interview with Amelia last summer. Read more about her and her character of Willa by clicking on the image below:

EJ Scott, which everyone knows as the boyfriend of Deborah Ann Woll, has a podcast where he interviews various celebrities and interesting people. Below is the latest “Scratch the Surface” EJ Podcast. In this podcast, EJ interviews True Blood’s, Chris Bauer.

EJ Says: Chris Bauer has an acting resume as long as my arm. He’s worked with some of the greatest actors and directors that there is. But all that aside, Chris Bauer is a very interesting, thoughtful, deep and complex guy. We talk about:

  • His strict Catholic upbringing.
  • How he started acting in commercials at the age of 3.
  • His 3 month long planned proposal to his now wife and how he tried talking her out of it immediately after.
  • How True Blood has become an experiment in sociology.
  • How he cursed at Woody Allen during the filming of “Deconstructing Harry” on camera.
  • His take on improv and getting shirtless for an audience.
  • Getting naked on True Blood
  • His struggle with his weight.
  • What Howard Stern thinks of him.
  • Working with Bill Murray.
  • His first meeting with Alan Ball and how that lead to his role as Sheriff Andy Bellefleur on HBO’s TRUE BLOOD.
  • And so much more!!

We laughed a lot. Had some deep moments. I hope you listen, like and share. Thanks!!

Listen and Enjoy.
