The TV Addict: Although there’s plenty to love about Sunday’s season premiere, Stephen Moyer fans in particular will get a real kick out of the season’s second episode which flashes back all the way to London’s punk scene circa 1982 to reveal a very cool bit of backstory about Bill Compton that sheds some much needed light on the current predicament he finds himself in. Oh, and if your tastes run more towards younger, blonder Ryan Kwanten variety, you’ll be happy to know that poor Jason Stackhouse will spend the entire episode tied to a bed for reasons we’re really not about to get into here.

Quick! Someone better change the population sign in Bon Temps, Louisiana, because a whole slew of supernatural citizens are moving in! With the "True Blood" season four premiere just three (blessed!) days away, what better time to meet the new vampires, witches and shapeshifters moving into town? We caught up with the cast at this week's premiere event in L.A. and asked them to give a primer—a Character 101, if you will—on their juicy roles.
First up is Aaron Perilo who plays bloodsucker Blackburn. "I am a vampire, if you can see the pale skin," he joked, motioning to his face. "I'm pretty old, so I'm very fast. I kind of have an attitude. I don't know if it's a talent, but I guess I have kind of a bloodthirsty attitude where I like to get in trouble."
Trouble will follow the vamps wherever they go this season, thanks to a new coven of witches brewing up spells in Bon Temps, led by "Harry Potter" star Fiona Shaw who playsMarnie. "She's not a very good witch, but she becomes a very powerful witch as the thing goes on," she said. "It's been very interesting for me to play someone so out there, so weird, so lonely, so desperate, so isolated that it's been a very big challenge."
Holding hands in the circle with Marnie is Roy (played by Dean Chelcvala) and Casey(played by Fiona Dourif). Then there's Antonia (played by Paola Turbay), who's from another time altogether. "She is a witch from the era of the Inquisition," Paola revealed. "Her spirit is haunting the vampires. She's around and she's causing a lot of trouble."
Rounding out the roster is shapeshifter Luna (played by Janina Gavankar). "She's a school teacher by day and a shapeshifter by night," Janina mused. (And, we should add, Sam Merlotte's new love interest!) "She is a nice girl with a big ol' past who is just trying to do the right thing and be drama-free and keep it together and live a simple life in Bon Temps," she added.
Simple...in Bon Temps? Sorry, Janina. It's never that simple.
