Carter Matt talks True Blood season 7 and Alexander Skarsgard.
“True Blood” season 7 is starting to creep up on us, so why not present a little bit more fun and speculation on the ending?
What we know for sure about the way the show is winding down is this: The ending has the difficult task of trying to tie together dozens of story threads, and we don’t expect all of them to have a perfect ending. What we do imagine is that we will be presented with something that shocks us, and at the same time presents a little bit of hope for the future of some characters. (With that being said, it will probably come at the expense of others.)
Most responses you get from cast members about the nature of the grand send-off are pretty generic, but one actress in Amelia Rose Blaire (Willa) had an interesting perspective on it in a chat with Uinterview:
“The end of True Blood is going to make fans very happy and heartbroken at the same time … Because that’s what True Blood does best.”
Given that we are such big-time fans of all things Eric Northman, she also gave this pretty fun quote marveling at the mere stature of Alexander Skarsgard, who she has worked with pretty extensively so far:
“He’s really goofy! He’s really goofy and always likes to make a lot of jokes. So he’s a lot of fun to work with and of course he’s very, very tall. He’s like 6’5” or something, so he’s definitely a figure to behold, but he’s really nice and really down to earth. And he drives a really nice car!”
Eric is going to somehow find a way to survive that near-death experience on a top of the snowy mountain we saw in the season 6 finale … but for now, everything else about his character and the future is under a heavy lock and key until the show likely returns on June.
Congrats to Alexander Skarsgard!
We’re introducing the 12 new members of our Sundance Institute Alumni Advisory Board, a group of Institute-supported artists who volunteer their time and voices to share their experiences and to help tell the Sundance Institute story. The group represents the range of artists we support each year, including directors, screenwriters, actors, theatre artists and musicians. These artists have been a vital part of the independent film and theatre community and Sundance Institute family for years, and now take on an even bigger role with the Alumni Advisory Board. Meet the team:
Alexander Skarsgårdis a Swedish actor. He has been featured on HBO’s Generation Kill andTrue Blood. Alexander has appeared in a number of film projects including the remake of Straw Dogs (2011), Melancholia (2011), written and directed by Lars von Trier, the action Sci-Fi filmBattleship (2012), The East (2013), directed by Zal Batmanglij, and most recently The Diary of a Teenage Girl, written and directed by Sundance Institute Fellow, Marielle Heller.
I’m so excited for The Giver, is anyone else?!
Oh my…not looking forward to the deaths of the “favorites”.
Ryan Kwanten, who plays Jason Stackhouse on HBO’s True Blood, says the final season of the vampire (and other creatures) series is about one-third of the way through filming.
Access Hollywood asked him what we can expect in terms of surprises as the series wraps, and Kwanten said that “nothing” is being left to chance.
We all know we’ll be saying goodbye to Bon Temps, but we’d better be prepared to say goodbye to some favorite characters.
“People are going to be dying,” he said, which wouldn’t be anything out of the ordinary for the show. But he added, “Some of your favorites are going to be not lasting the season, unfortunately.”
True Blood’s 10-episode final season is set to air this summer.
Season 6 ended with Alexander Skarsgard’s vampire Eric, nude and reading atop a snow-covered mountain. However, the special powers bestowed by blood wore off and he began to burn up, leaving many fans angry and wondering if that’s the end for Eric.
