Deborah Ann Woll sheds Jessica image for Daredevil

True Blood star Deborah Ann Woll says she has finally put her randy vampire character to bed by appearing on the superhero TV series Daredevil. She attended the launch of the Netflix Australia & New Zealand launch party at Museum of Contemporary Art on March 24, 2015 in Sydney, Australia and there she talked about her new role as Karen Page, see photos below:

Deborah plays Karen Page who is the secretary for the law firm of Daredevil’s alter ego Matt Murdock and the superhero’s love interest on the Netflix series.

She has told AAP that fans of True Blood will know her by name but she’s confident they will not identify her with vampire Jessica Hamby while watching her in Daredevil.

“For me actors, really good actor’s, who care, it’s about their characters and they want the characters to shine, even more than themselves,” Woll says.
“Even while Jessica meant a lot to many people, I hope Karen does in her own special way …”

Daredevil will start streaming on Netflix from April 10 and it’s Woll’s first major TV series since True Blood ended last year.

She says Daredevil, like True Blood, may be a fantasy series but it’s slightly more grounded in the real world.

There’s also no CGI effects on Daredevil meaning all the action is performed by the actors or their stunt doubles.

“Daredevil is basically the real world with a few key differences whereas True Blood is all about excess and it was all about fantasy and high energy,” she says.

“You offer yourself as much as you can (for stunts) but you don’t want to violate their insurance rules and you also want to pay tribute to the stunt performers who have spent years making us look good in those moments.”

What’s also different for Woll from previous TV series is that all 13 episodes of Daredevil will be released simultaneously. By dumping all episodes, Netflix is encouraging viewers to binge watch.

The scheduling model also locks in the storyline which is different to commercial networks who can alter the direction of a series or even introduce, or kill off, characters to revive ratings or to please critics.

“It helps the director and writers because they don’t have to be quite obsessed with the cliff hanger episode in the hope they (the audience) better come back next week,” Woll says.

As for binge watching, Woll is an addict and even preaches its benefits.

“I am definitely a binge watcher, it’s my preferred way to watch,” she says.”It’s fun to settle in for a night where you settle into an event and you can really immerse yourself.”

    She is so talented I am sure Jessica will not spill over into Karen.  Having said that I will always love our baby vamp Jessica.
