Televisionary interviewed Anna Camp, who plays Sarah Newlin on True Blood. Anna talks about Sarah Newlin, her original audition for True Blood (for the role of Sookie, no less!), the love triangle between Sarah, Jason, and Steve, Sarah’s darker side, her theatre work (opposite Daniel Radcliffe in Equus), whether the Newlins are gone for good, Mad Men, and lots more.
On her audition for Sarah, Anna comments: ” I auditioned for Alan [Ball] for the pilot a while ago… for Sookie! (Laughs) And of course didn’t get cast. Then a year later when he was looking to cast someone for Sarah, he called me up and offered me the part, which was really exciting. (Laughs) So I didn’t have to audition; we just talked on the phone, so it was the best kind of audition in a way.
I just fell in love with the storyline and, being from the South originally, I had to be on this show at some point. It’s just so creative and not like anything else on TV right now and I was really glad that he gave me that call.”
