True Blood’s Anna Camp plays the villainous Sarah Newlin and as we found out in last Sunday’s episode, she just might be able to help with the cure of True Blood. In the interview below we’ve extracted the True Blood related questions where Anna Camp reveals some information about Sarah Newlin and what might happen next on True Blood’s final season.
How did you feel when you found out that Sarah is the cure for Hep-V?
Anna Camp: I was shocked. This whole season I’ve been shocked as to what they’ve done with the character. I didn’t see this coming at all — like even me being a Buddhist. But I’m loving it. It just shows how far off the deep end she’s gone. It’s crazy. I don’t think that Sarah was thinking that all of a sudden now, “I’m the cure for everything.” I think she just didn’t know what to do with it, and her way of controlling it — instead of losing it or having someone steal it, she just ingested it. I don’t think she knows the ramifications that’s going to cause her in the future when she does it.
How dangerous is it for her now?
Camp: Well, she’s painted a huge target on her. She’s basically this walking time bomb. And also, in a way, it’s saving her life. In an indirect way, she’s keeping herself alive by being the cure. I don’t think she meant to do any of this, because she’s not that smart or that calculated in a way.
When we first saw Sarah, it seemed like she might’ve changed by being a Buddhist. But then we also see that she’s sleeping with the guru — still the same old Sarah attracted to men in power. Do you think she regrets anything she’s done?
Camp: No, she doesn’t regret it. I mean, she is psychotic to the point where she’s convinced herself that this has all happened for a reason. She believes that she’s now been sent here to save everyone. She really doesn’t regret doing anything because now she can cure the world. So, she’s definitely convinced herself that this is all part of God’s master plan.
Can you tease anything about the next time Sarah and Eric will meet?
Camp: Oh, my God. It’s a pretty big buildup over a few episodes. I actually return back to the Light of Day camp. I sort of lose my mind and I’m wandering back to the Light of Day camp. I’m starting to hallucinate, and I start seeing people from my past. I break down and I’m hiding in this room basically having my own little Blue Jasmine moment.
Considering Pam (Kristin Bauer van Staten) likely blames Sarah for the imminent death of her maker, will we get any great scenes between them?
Camp: Oh yeah. Pam hates my guts, and she is definitely not holding any of that back. She is one of the actresses that I have always wanted to have scenes with on this show. You see these two Southern belles who are pretty girly, and we have some great one-liners. There’s a handful of scenes that I’m really excited about seeing because she’s awesome to work with.
Will Sarah reunite with Jason (Ryan Kwanten)?
Camp: You are going to see us together again, but that’s hard to explain. I can’t really explain how they see each other, but yes, we do have a couple of scenes together, and it’s a very fascinating way that they’ve written the two characters seeing each other again.
Do you think Sarah deserves a happy ending?

Camp: That’s interesting. I typically don’t think that she does. She tried to eliminate all vampires just because she hates them and they’re considered evil to her. But I imagine her actually having a really horrific, explosive death. I love her and I love who she is and I think it’s so much wicked fun to play. But definitely I think she deserves to die after everything that she’s done. [Laughs]
