At yesterday’s Comic Con 2012 True Blood Panel, another topic that came up was Stephen’s role as director of Season 5, Episode 8. I enjoyed filming this portion of the panel to hear Stephen talk about his desire to direct, and how he begged Alan Ball to allow him to do so. Finally, after several requests and shadowing one of the True Blood directors, Alan Ball granted his request.
Stephen talks all about the experience in the video below that I shot during the panel. He particularly talks about how he enjoyed working with Sam. He said that Sam is an amazing actor and had one of the toughest jobs on his episode that any actor could have.
Personally, I can’t wait to see that one.
