Over at Charity Buzz there is an exclusive set visit to HBO’s True Blood where you can not only see the set, but also enjoy coffee with Alfre Woodard and Nelsan Ellis.
Meet up with the man who plays the wonderful Lafayette and the woman who plays his mama, Ruby Jean as you learn about the making of True Blood.
Alfre Woodard is considered by many to be one of America’s most successful and talented actresses. Stephen Rebello of Movieline magazine echoes what many of his fellow critics believe: “She’s the definition of an actor’s actor– chameleonic, idiosyncratic, true.” Her two Emmy awards, a Cable ACE Award and numerous other accolades, including an Academy Award nomination for her best supporting role in the movie Cross Creek, confirm that she is also respected by her peers.
Julliard trained actor Nelsan Ellis spent several years as a stage actor before he achieved breakout success on television when he took the role of Lafayette Reynolds in True Blood. Nelsan has impressed not only audiences, but the show’s executives as well. For his efforts on the debut season Nelson was nominated for a Satellite Media Award. Nelson has also wrote, executive produced and starred in Trespass (2005), one of five finalists for the 2006 HBO Short Film Award at the American Black Film Festival (ABFF).
