True Blood’s Anna Camp: Blond Ambition

True Blood’s Anna Camp: Blond Ambition

s2-24Televisionary 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.”

    It’s great to hear Anna’s thoughts and insights. I had no idea she was in Equus with Daniel Radcliffe. I hope the Newlins continue to create their special brand of chaos. And yes, I am with her in this: I’d love to see her interact one on one with a vampire.

    Informative and interesting interview. Thanks, Shad, for posting.

    I would love to see Sarah rebell and enter into a romantic relationship with Bill. Now THAT would be awsome!

      Yah. I believe it’ll be hot if she’ll enter Sookie and Bill’s life!

    I agree she is great as Sarah. I was curious where in the South she’s from so I looked her up and found out she’s from Aiken, SC! I’m from SC and know tons of people from Aiken so I like her even more now! It is really blowing my mind that she is from Aiken.
