Evan Rachel Wood has some unfinished business on True Blood and she says fans can expect an “epic” fight and “lots of blood” when she returns to season four as Queen Sophie Anne of Louisiana to finish what got started with Stephen Moyer’s Bill Compton at the end of season three.
According to Access Hollywood, Wood says, “Of course there will be a resolution. And we’ll just have to wait and see what happens, but it will be epic.”
Wood also thinks Queen Sophie Anne might have a reversal of fortune, saying, “I think she’ll get what she deserves.”
Of course she can’t reveal any plot details, but Wood says she has filmed one episode so far and really enjoys being back in the craziness of True Blood. “It’s been great. It’s one of the funnest sets I’ve worked on,” she said of being back. “[There’s]’s just always something crazy [happening]. True Blood is just a blast; it’s fun; it’s scary; it’s sexy; it’s hilarious.”
A Spanish speaking actress, could be related to Jesus either in the present or past-
Paola Turbay has joined HBO's drama True Blood as a recurring. She will play Antonia. We don't know much about her except for the fact that she speaks fluent Spanish.
Kevin Alejandro has dropped hints about his relationships in the fourth season of True Blood.
Speaking to Access Hollywood, Alejandro suggested that his romantic storyline with Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) will continue to evolve.
"My relationship [will grow] not only with him but other characters in the show as well," he said. "They are really moving us around and balancing it out in all these crazy, strange ways and it works, man. It works really well this year."
Alejandro also claimed that he would feel "comfortable" filming sex scenes on the show, saying: "The thing about doing scenes like that is everyone is really respectful and very professional. You're comfortable doing it and you're friends with everybody, so when something like that happens it's only the people that absolutely have to be there in the room."
Alan Ball teases us a bit on the new season
From HBO's Inside True Blood Blog by Gianna Sobol, not always spoilery but sometimes it is, it's a good read regardless-
It's early February, and episode 403 is shooting at an undisclosed location just outside of sunny (but surprisingly cold) Los Angeles. The halls of the production office are bustling. Everyone is talking about how insanely talented Fiona Shaw is. Rebecca Wisocky just came in for a fitting. Our script coordinator Daniel is rushing out new pages. Post-production is delivering their watermarked dailies to all the powers that be.
Now I don't want to give away too many details, but today’s call sheet includes the words hostage, bites, dinner and Eric. There is also a General Safety Memo When Working with Exotic Animals attached to the front. This is one dangerous place to be, and things are as big and crazy as ever. But it's a long road from now until the premiere of Season 4. There is a lot of work to be done and a lot of waiting to suffer through. But you needn't do that alone, I am here to provide your weekly dose. So keep checking back for news on production, plus a little backdoor peek at how things work around here. And just to whet your appetites, here's a quick Q&A with Alan:
Gianna: What are you most excited about this season?
Alan: I really love the Eric storyline.
Gianna: What's going to shock the fans?
Alan: What happens to Jason...throughout the whole season.Gianna: Got any advice for fans that are chomping at the bit?
Alan: We're working as fast as we can! In the meantime, I recommend watching the Swedish film Let the Right One In and the Russian films Day Watch and Night Watch.
Ball also revealed at Paleyfest that the good thing about dealing with caharcters that are hundreds of years old is that you can bring them back in flashbacks. Allan Hyde has signed up to return as beloved Godrick!
This Truebie needs some bloody good scoop! — Lisa
You mean there’s something EW’s Carrie Bell DIDN’T cover in her PaleyFest wrap up?! Lucky for you, our on-the-scene scooper hit the carpet, too, and got Stephen Moyer to expand a little on those flashback scenes between Bill and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard). “We get to go back and create in historic detail a little element that illustrates who we are and why we might be in certain situations in present day. That’s really fun. I feel sorry for the others that they don’t get to do that.” Ryan Kwanten doesn’t need his pity, though. Instead of working with sexy beasts, he’s gotten to work with real ones! “I just shot a scene with live panthers. It is certainly not something most people encounter in their day-to-day life. It was a little scary because those are dangerous creatures.” Aren’t they all, Ryan? Aren’t they all?
So happy EW was out at PaleyFest! Anything more you can give on True Blood? Maybe with Jessica and Hoyt? They’re one of my favorite TV couples!! — Sammie
If you’re a Hoyt (Jim Parrack) and Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) fan, prepare yourself for episodes 7 and 8 of the new season, which creator Alan Ball says are “very important” for the couple. “It is perhaps not as easy as they thought to be happy couple,” he said. In a separate convo with EW, Woll shed some light on exactly what that conflict might be. “Conflicting schedules could be a problem. I also think vampires wouldn’t make good housewives, and Hoyt was a mama’s boy who is used to be very mothered. Like food. Vampires don’t eat so I probably wouldn’t remember to have dinner ready when he gets home. I’m also not cleaning toilets because I don’t use them. And I’m gonna suck him dry every night. I’m a dream to live with,” she jokes.
‘The first episode back this summer features Gary Cole (”Office Space,” “Entourage,”) and Fiona Shaw (Aunt Petunia in the “Harry Potter” films) as head witch, and series regular. ” The witches go around wreaking havoc,” reveals Kristin Bauer (Pam De Beaufort).
Fairy Tales: “You are definitely going to see a different realm that humans don’t exist in that fairies do. We’ll also maybe see through the illusion, maybe they’re not quite as benign as one might think,” says show creator Alan Ball.
Bill’s Revenge: Bill vowed to kill everyone who knows that Sookie is a fairy, so does he? “Well you know at the end of season three she disappears into a warm fuzzy light, so, we don’t’ even know whether she’s back yet, but if anybody does find out I’ll kill ‘em,” says Stephen Moyer (Bill).
Lafayette & Jesus: “It gets deeper,” Alejandro says of Jesus and Lafeyette’s relationship. “It’s a very colorful relationship and it’s a beautiful ride. He’s a man’s man and an actor’s actor and on top of his game. I learn from him.”
Tara Snaps Out of It! “Tara finds some happiness. It’s a new Tara. She’s very stable. I think she goes and has fun for a while. We’ll find out what she’s been up to, which has been a lot. People will be surprised by it. And there are new characters I get to play with,” says Wesley.
Pam Vs. the Witches: “The witches test us all this year, Pam included. Pam has a very fascinating and challenging storyline that I’ve been shooting all week. I’m not sure what the witches want exactly, but as of episode five they are kicking Pam’s ass but she’s not going to lie down and take it. I think I get some good action this season,” says Bauer.
Jesus’ Witchiness: Good witch or bad witch, you ask? “I can’t tell you that. I’m a witch.” Magical powers? “I depends on how you look at it it’s more spiritual than magic. But the season is not just about the witches. There are so many other things people will be surprised by. It’s a very well-balanced season,” he says
Brotherly Love? Will Sam and Tommy makeup? “That is the question – can Sam and Tommy get along? I mean, he did try to shoot me. He may have shot me. I guess it depends on where he shot me how I’ll handle it. You find that out real quick. I may not be dead, but I may not be fine. This year for Tommy is all about trying to be normal, to be better. It’s hard for Tommy. Trouble seems to follow him. Poor guy,” says Marshall Allman (Tommy Mickens).
