Moyer-Paquin twins’ names finally revealed

Posted by Shadaliza On June - 11 - 20133 COMMENTS

annapaquin-stephenmoyerAfter many months of speculation finally official confirmation of the names of the Moyer-Paquin twin brother and sister. The little ones are called Charlie and Poppy. A strong, classic male name and a lovely flower. Excellent choices, if you’d ask me.

Stephen mentioned the babies’ names at the Tuesday night premiere of True Blood. After mentioning that Lilac, was leaving for sleep-away camp this weekend, he said that he and Anna planned on spending Father’s Day “hanging out with Charlie and Poppy.”

Apparently Anna has a little surprise planned for Father’s Day, but is not giving away anything. “I can’t tell you because that would ruin the surprise,” she laughed before adding, “I don’t know about [it being a] big surprise, but yes, there are plans.”

winnersdeltaraeThe winners of the Delta Rae Music CD have been chosen.

We chose two winners, one from the comments posted on, The Vault – TrueBlood-online.com and one from AllStephenMoyer.com.

We want to thank all who participated and we’ll be contacting the winners today to ask them to send us their addresses. If you’re a winner, be sure to check your email inbox for our notification that you’ve won.

The winners are listed below. Congratulations!

 

The winners are Katie and My Obsession.  Their answers are below:

Katie says:

What powers do you think the singer in the first Delta Rae video has that enabled her to get away from her captives?

She is a witch. She was able to make her chains disappear and her captors lay dead or knocked out.

Do you think the song was a good choice for True Blood and why?

The song is about a river and this has dual symbolism. Water can drown you or wash away your sins(baptism). Since True Blood is a show filled with symbolism it is only fitting a song with duality would be used.

 

My Obsession says:

What powers do you think the singer in the first Delta Rae video has that enabled her to get away from her captives?

What first came to thought was witch trials – people with torches barging into your house and taking you by force away. My guess is she is a witch that casts a spell on these people, who because of their religious beliefs, vivify her.

Do you think the song was a good choice for True Blood and why?

This song was a good choice for TB. It has an mysterious, evil/evil spirit feel with religious undertones. Is Billith going to be evil or does he think he’s god? Or will Warlow or the Governor be the evil ones? The song is The Bottom of the River – We have seen previews of Lafayette plunging Sookie into a river – is he baptizing her to “save her” or drowning her as he sees her as evil according to his religious upbringing. Is it Sookie or Lafayette who is evil? Water washes everything away and makes clean. So hard to tell who is really evil.

lafayetteThe man behind Lafayette, Nelsan Ellis has some aspirations for his character in True Blood Season 6 that we learn in the interview he did with Today.com. See part of their interview with Nelsan Ellis below:

Despite his character’s appreciation for men, the actor behind Lafayette — Nelsan Ellis — would like the short-order cook to get a taste of something different. Namely, ladies.

“I would love to see Lafayette get a girlfriend!”

I think Lafayette is bisexual,” Ellis explained. “I don’t think the producers would be down for it, but wouldn’t it take the audience by storm?! Lipstick on his lips kissing a girl wearing lipstick, and he’s like, ‘This is my girl’?! They could be wearing matching bandannas. I think it would be awesome. Anyway, that’s my fantasy!”

And with new showrunner Brian Buckner at the helm now that Alan Ball has stepped down, anything is possible:

“We have a different boss so we have a different show,” Ellis said.

And besides love for Lafayette, there are still tons of ideas from the Sookie Stackhouse books that are just waiting to be explored on the HBO show.

“I’ve read eight of those books! I like them so much. They are so addictive!” Ellis enthused. “While my character was killed off early on in the books, I’m really grateful to the fans and that’s why I’m still here on the show.”

“I lead a blessed life,” Ellis added. “I’m just grateful for all of it.”

True Blood’s “Arlene,” Carrie Preston and her hubby, Michael Emerson are seen in the photos below as they arrived at the Broadcast Television Journalists Association’s third annual Critics’ Choice Television Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on June 10, 2013 in Beverly Hills, California.

Carrie was interviewed while on the red carpet by Elle Magazine but refused to spill any plot points about True Blood’s Season 6. “I really would love to tell you,” she teased. “It’s really hard not to talk about it.” But she did mention that character development, especially on True Blood, is what draws her to TV.

“You get to live with the characters for much longer than a film,” Preston explained. “A film is two hours and then that’s it—that’s all you know about these characters. Whereas if you have a TV show like True Blood, you get to live with the characters for six years, and you get to see them in all kinds of situations, dramas, and conflicts. That’s what keeps me coming back.”

Carrie had been nominated for an award as best guest performer in a drama series.  

The other nominees in Carrie’s category were:

• Jim Beaver (Justified) – FX
• Jane Fonda (The Newsroom) – HBO
• Martha Plimpton (The Good Wife) – CBS
• Carrie Preston (The Good Wife) – CBS
• Diana Rigg (Game of Thrones) – HBO
• Jimmy Smits (Sons of Anarchy) – FX

We congratulate Carrie on her nomination and see that she had stiff competition in this category with such stellar performers in the running. As a result, she unfortunately, lost to the winner, Jane Fonda (The Newsroom) – HBO.

billpromos6-1

SPOILER ALERT!

Sarene Leeds of Rolling Stone Magazine interviewed the new True Blood showrunner, Brian Buckner about Season 6.  In the interview, Brian talks about the big changes this season will bring, not just for Bill Compton, i.e., Billith, but for all of the characters. Some of the things he mentions is (what we already have heard), the loss of a  major character, how the relationships between Sookie, Eric and Bill will change and what new relationships might materialize. He says Sookie will be more “mature” and while that they tried to keep the show “fresh and riveting,” it looks like there will be a major shift in focus. I’m excited to see what comes about and can’t wait for June 16.

So what can we expect from this new season?
Well, thematically – and I want to be fair to all seasons past – I feel like we do so much running and killing that we very seldom stop to speak to the importance of life. So we will have an episode this season that’s entitled “Life Matters.” We’re trying to remind people that the lives of these human beings and of the vampires here in this small town of Bon Temps, they mean something. So that if we lose somebody, we’re going to stop to grieve them, and try to tell the more human side of the supernatural stories we’re telling. That is sort of my mission statement.

Without giving away any spoilers, what secrets of the new season can you reveal?
I can tell you, because I believe it’s already out there, that you will see both Steve and Sarah Newlin, in a meaningful way. [Pauses] One of our principal characters will not make it all the way through the season. In television, because of the pace of what we do, who these actors are, they inform the characters that they’re playing. Because Anna [Paquin, who plays Sookie Stackhouse] is changing in her life – because she’s a mother now – we’re trying to make a more grown-up Sookie, a less naive Sookie. A Sookie who knows when she needs help and isn’t always saying, “I can do it myself.” And a darker Sookie, honestly. Someone who’s a little bit more eyes-open to the world and self-aware.

Now that we’re in the sixth season, how do you keep this story fresh and riveting?
Change. I’m not going to say what the changes are, but it’s a big deal. Everybody loves the show, but actors don’t want to play the same scenes anymore, and writers don’t want to write the same scenes anymore, and so literally shifting things up. And pivoting people around – on this show, other than when we have table reads and premiere parties, a lot of these actors never work together – so the way I look at it, if we can shift the paradigm, and some of the relationships within the show, there are all these sort of new avenues to go down. Jason has basically never played a scene with, like, Pam, right? So there’s all these pairings, and my job, and the job of the writers is to change the lanes that we’ve been driving down for six seasons. The answer is, because we have all these characters, I think it’s very easy to stay fresh – you just have to be mindful about doing so. So that’s the kind of thing that we have to be aware of and get back to a little bit of our soap opera roots and remember that romance matters in the midst of all the plot we do.

Along those lines, would you say that the Bill/Sookie/Eric love triangle still exists this season?
I think that it exists – the tension is there, but I would say that these characters have never been further apart, romantically. Bill and Sookie are still the center of the show. That pull is there, but you can’t always have people together. But the impasse is really interesting.

How has your role on the show changed now that you are the showrunner as opposed to just one of the executive producers/writers?
Before, for a long time, we pretty much maintained the same staff, the same core group, for the first five years. And nobody wanted to see Alan leave. And now I really know why I didn’t want to see Alan leave. We would all produce our own episodes, and work with each other on a larger story arc, but we were principally responsible for our own episodes. The big difference for me now is I have to be principally responsible for all of them. And I don’t think I ever fully appreciated the pressure Alan was under. So it’s that, and of course the responsibilities go beyond writing. It’s post – it’s having to maintain a dialogue with the actors so they know where we are, where their story lines are headed. And you can get very, very distracted. So the writing seems to come last [laughs], and that’s been a little bit hard, and I’ve actually never had more respect for the job Alan was doing than I have now, now that I am sort of sitting in that seat. Because it’s a big job.

Did you write any of this season’s episodes?
Yeah, I wrote the ninth episode, and I had a heavy hand throughout. But not too heavy. I don’t want to do a disservice to any of our fine writers. The group that I’ve had has really rallied.

How do you think you approach the show differently than Alan did?
[Long pause
] I’m learning to let writers have their own voices. I think Alan was extremely good about letting people do what they did. And I think sometimes my response to pressure is to control more. He’s a more seasoned showrunner. He knows when to trust, and I sometimes will just lock myself [laughs] in a room and try to take more on. I especially miss him in editing, because he was really good at backing off from what was written and seeing what’s there, and treating that as a rewrite. I miss him in that capacity. He was really, really strong that way.

After last season’s shocking finale, would you say Bill has entirely lost his humanity at this point, or is there still hope for him?
I think there always has to be hope for him. But his arc during the season, in that first episode, [spoiler alert!] he asks Jessica to make sure he doesn’t lose it. He will. He does. But he will find his way back, because Bill has to be Bill. But that fight that’s going on between the Bill part of Bill and the Lilith part of Bill, she will win for a little while.
