Nelson Ellis was recently interviewed by E and he provided some interesting information about the entrance of werewolves in Season 3, Lafayette’s new boyfriend, played by Kevin Alejandro, his crazy mother, played by Alfre Woodard, and his plans for Angelina Jolie if she were to be a cast member. Read their interview with Nelsan, below:
OK, Nelsan, spoil us silly. What can you tell us about season three?
“The werewolves are coming in. They’re going to be good and they compare quite favorably to Twilight werewolves like Taylor Lautner. He says, “I like Taylor, but our werewolves have a little more gravitas, they’re edgier-looking, and they’re just much meaner. They’re vicious.”
And apparently True Blood’s wolf pack, led by Joe Manganiello’s Alcide, is not too hard on the eyes, either
They are some good-lookin’ chaps! All the eyes on the set turn to the werewolves. They’re like the GQ bastards.
What’s in store for Lafayette?
I get a love interest, and I have a mama now, played by Alfre Woodard. She’s completely insane, so we’ll see where that storyline goes.”
So, if it’s true that we’ll be learning a lot more about Lafayette this year, including his mom and a new boyfriend, how does that tie into the overall mythology of the show?
“It doesn’t, because Lafayette’s storyline is completely new, considering that I’m not supposed to be in the series. Lafayette was supposed to die the seventh episode of the first season. If I have a tie into the mythology it’s my tie into the vampires. I’m Eric’s henchman (Alexander Skarsgård) now. So that’s my tie to the mythology, but my other storyline is human, and it’s all new.”
As for the other man in Lafayette’s life, Kevin Alejandro, can you tell us of his role?
I just started last week, and I honestly don’t know a whole lot, but there’s definitely an interest between myself and the character of Lafayette.”
Who would you would like to see appear on the show?
Angelina Jolie, as a vampire queen. “She would slay the show.”
