True Blood Sophie-Anne’s fashion secrets revealed

Posted by Shadaliza On September - 1 - 200911 COMMENTS

erwhboTrue Blood’s costume designer Audrey Fisher reveals the fashion secrets of queen Sophie-Anne.

We first meet Wood snacking on her female lover in a floor-length gold dust gown by Les Habitudes with cascading embroidery, heels by Bebe and rhinestone watch by Figaro Couture.

And talk about a high/low combo–the dramatic drop earrings that look as though the Queen raided them from an Elizabethan pop-up are only $65, from Carloee, available at Lord & Taylor.

For her second look, and our personal favorite, Sophie-Ann sports a tongue-wagging pool ensemble: throwback bathing suit by Norma Kamali, robe by Jonquil, bust broach a vintage Pauline Trigere and DSquared heels.

As for her sunglasses (those sunglasses!), those are “vintage one-of-a-kind” according to Fisher.

Ryan Kwanten is not shy about nudity

Posted by Shadaliza On September - 1 - 20098 COMMENTS

57645411shadaliza610200963210amRyan Kwanten says he’s comfortable appearing naked on screen in his fair share of graphic sex scenes in True Blood.
“I feel like it’s something Jason my character would actually do,” Kwanten said. “I never feel like I’m putting myself out on a wire because the writing is always so good as well. And most of the time the actresses are more nervous than me anyway.”

Ryan has tried to stay especially fit for the show.

“I usually just try and cater the body to the role, obviously Jason is someone who looks after himself. He’s very vain,” Kwanten said. “He’s aware of his looks, so it’s important that I stay on top of it but I also just enjoy fitness in general.”

Kwanten says many people in the US are surprised to find out he is Australian.
“It’s a nice complement to get even American people or people in the South coming up and saying where in the South am I from, and then when I actually talk they think I’m putting this accent on,” Kwanten said.

Kwanten says he’s proud to be involved saying the team of stars and writers was a “lethal combination”.

“It’s even surprised the biggest optimists out there,” Kwanten said.

“There’s not many shows out there that have that kind of calibre behind them.

“Vampires in general, I’m not really into, but if they’re thrown into a really good story I’ll watch it.”

Kwanten has scored a range of parts since moving to the US about eight years ago, including the TV series Summerland and the film Flicka.

He recently finished shooting a film in Australia called Red Hill and will return again in a couple of weeks to start shooting a star role in Griff The Invisible.

Kwanten attributes his success to being able to handle rejection.

“Obviously you’ve got to have the talent but what I think is so important in this town as well is to have resilience and tenacity, you’ve got to be able to deal with rejection, more so than any other job,” he said.

“Even in a good year you’re still getting rejected more than 90 per cent of the time.”

Looking ahead, he says, True Blood will keep him in the US for the next few years, but would like to eventually come back to Australia.

A few random thoughts on True Blood “Frenzy”

Posted by Shadaliza On August - 31 - 2009184 COMMENTS

Frenzy was the episode in which queen Sophie-Anne made her first appearance and she owned it.
When it was first announced that Evan Rachel Wood would portray the queen, many fans were disappointed and thought she that was a miscast. But the casting of Evan Rachel Wood is just another example of how the show differences from the books and I think she makes a wonderful queen, decadent, bored and beautiful. Kudos to set design for the beautiful day room.

“Never underestimate the power of blind faith.” That sentence reminded me immediately of “American Beauty” where Ricky says: “Never underestimate the power of denial.” Both great quotes and both so very true.

It is quite obvious that Sophie-Anne and Bill have met before and the queen knows who Sookie is… The book readers will have a theory about that….I will not get into that here, but I am sure it will be discussed in the comments on this article and I will allow those spoilers to be posted in the comments (just this once), so be spoiler warned if you haven’t read the books.

Sophie-Anne about Bill and Eric: “You two should just fuck each other and get it over with, I could watch.”
Save me a seat…
But that is not going to happen any time soon because the boys continue their fight over Sookie. Finally Bill has a weapon against Eric: he knows that Eric is forcing Lafayette to sell V.

Interesting is that Sookie feels attracted towards Eric because she drank his blood. She drank Bill’s blood too and that increased the initial attraction she felt towards him.

Hoyt realizes that having a vampire for a girlfriend maybe wasn’t such a good idea after all, specially when she is having you momma for dinner. Jessica is struggling, alone again, in the no-mans land between vampire and human.
Maxine tells the truth about his daddy to Hoyt and destroys Hoyt’s memory of his father.

Tara started out saying some very reasonable things about why she wanted to go and rescue Eggs, she loves him  and is convinced that he loves her too. But as soon as she is handcuffed to the table (with purple furry handcuffs) it seems she is possessed again, saying some very nasty things to the people who just saved her. She succeeds in tricking Lettie Mae to let her go.

One of the biggest issues discussed on the message boards these past few weeks has been cleared up in last night’s episode. Many wondered why Lafayette doesn’t have any sex dreams about Eric, well…. he does.
Poor Lafayette is having PTSD delusions and mistakes Lettie Mae for vampire Eric with a dress on.

Jason feels invincible after his week of leadership training. He is ready to take his town back, but still has time for a dirty thought or two. He wonders if Sam has ever shifted into a dog and then had sex with a lady dog.
At the sheriff’s station Jason and Andy have to deal with Rosy who acts like a cat in heat and sheriff Dearnborn who is dancing around in his underwear.

Sam takes Arlene’s children with him to Fangtasia to see Eric. I really like how Sam talks to the children, he tells them no lies, like many adults would have done in the same situation. According to Eric the children are teacup humans and Pam thinks they smell bad.
Wow, Eric can fly! Great detail that his hair is all messed up when he lands at the queen’s residence.

An egg? Now what is all that about???

Anna Paquin leaves her handprint in Poland

Posted by Shadaliza On August - 31 - 20096 COMMENTS

Anna Paquin is in Gdańsk, Poland for the premiere of her movie “The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler”.

The film tell the story of Irena Sendler (Anna Paquin) a Polish woman who saved the lives of over 2500 Jewish children by helping them escape from the ghetto in Warsaw. Showing this film now in Poland has an extra significance because this year is the 70th anniversary of the beginning of WWII.

This afternoon Anna, her co-star Marcia Gay Harden and director John Kent Harrison left their hand prints on the Alley of Stars in Gdańsk.

True Blood fan Ania was present at the event. She and her friends prepared an album with information about Poland and a letter for the True Blood cast and crew, they had the opportunity to present it to Anna.

Anna was really surprised that they have heard about the show and even more surprised about the gift (which she looked at closely when she got into the car). She looked very natural and pretty and had really high heels which was a challenge to walked in on that pavement. Anna was really nice to everybody, she shook everybody’s hands, she signed autographs and posed for photos with the fans.

The Presidents, Prime Ministers and other important guests who were invited for the 70th anniversary of World War II to Gdańsk were also among attendants of the movie premiere.

Alexander SkarsgOErdAlexander Skarsgård has gotten his final breakthrough in the States by playing a Viking vampire in the TV-series “True blood” DNs Erik Ohlsson has met the new born Hollywood star that is still picking up his own laundry.

“There are 600 churches here,” Alexander Skarsgård informs us, while folding his long body into a purple-red Toyota Prius and taking us sightseeing in the town that will be his home for the next seven weeks.

Shreveport’s central parts are strange. The town, which is situated in northern Louisiana and is the size of Malmö, has a central core where decayed store houses are mixed with shiny polished sky scrapers. In addition the town consists mainly of churches and casinos. A merciless sun is burning the dusty roads. We see some occasional cars but not one single pedestrian.

This part of Louisiana is heavily struck by unemployment. To improve the economy, the state rulers have decided to give movie companies big reductions in taxes if they record in Louisiana.

Alexander Skarsgård has one of the leading roles in a new version of Sam Peckinpahs drama “Straw Dogs,” that right now is being recorded in and outside of Shreveport. The original movie came out in 1971 and was heavily debated due to its content of heavy violence. The new version of “Straw Dogs” will also turn bloody, Alexander lets us know.

Read the complete article on Skarsgardnews.
