In the video below, True Blood’s Nelsan Ellis, Kristin Bauer and Joe Manganiello talk about season four at the PaleyFest 2011 last Saturday night, March 5, 2011.

Nelsan Ellis, who plays Bon Temps’ sauciest short-order cook, tells us that fans aren’t shy about asking him personal questions, “How are you like Lafayette? Are you gay? Do you wear makeup? Are you that sassy? Are you that tough?” He also tells us that the truth is, “I’m just a country boy, and to be a part of something so magnificent and big [as True Blood] is weird for me.”

Kristin Bauer, who plays Eric’s vampy minion Pam, tells us, “[I get a lot of questions about] the big Swede—from women. It’s very interesting. Women seem to want to know about this tall gentleman. They all ask me what it’s like to work with Alex, and I [used to be] like ‘wonderful,’ ‘lovely,’ and now I’m like, ‘He’s kind of a pain in the butt.’ I just make stuff up.”

Joe Manganiello, who just joined the show last year as werewolf Alcide, tells us that even though he’s the new kid, he’s around for the duration: “Charlaine [Harris] is getting ready to drop the 11th book in May, and she’s threatening to write two more, so I’m around as long as the show goes.”

Lafayette makes Rolling Stone’s Groundbreaking Gay Roles List

Posted by Lynnpd On January - 26 - 2011

Lafayette Reynolds, played brilliantly by Nelsan Ellis on ‘True Blood’ makes #7 in the list of the 15 Most Groundbreaking Gay Roles on Television.

Thanks to creator Alan Ball’s brilliant thinking, Bon Temps’ most flashy short-order cook/V dealer is alive and well instead of dead in the back of Andy Bellefleur’s car (his character’s fate in Book Two of the Sookie Stackhouse novels). Although Lafayette embodies certain gay stereotypes (eyeliner, lipstick, jewelry, he prefers the ladies’ room – “I is gorgeous”), he is easily one of the most trustworthy characters in a world filled with devious vampires, werewolves, maenads, shape-shifters and, most recently, a witch – the latter of whom just happens to be Lafayette’s new boyfriend. Hookah, please!
