That TVGuide article keeps on giving, now a video!-
An interview with new were, Kelli Overton, from Today.com's The Clicker . The photo is from HBO so I would say it's a new image they released or will soon.
There's a sexy new werewolf named Rikki in Bon Temps, but don’t hold your breath for a romance between her and the suddenly single Alcide on the new season of "True Blood."
“All I can say is that everybody knows Alcide (Joe Manganello) is holding a candle for Sookie (Anna Paquin),” Kelly Overton, who plays Rikki on the show this summer, told TODAY.com.
“And who is to say that he is even (Rikki’s) type? She definitely lives life a little more on the edge than he does. It is definitely going to take a unique sort of person/being to catch Rikki’s eye and actually keep her interest.”
Overton -- a former high-school track star and mother of a 1-year-old girl -- describes her character as “tough and resourceful.”
“Rikki is pretty much the polar opposite of a damsel in distress,” she told TODAY.com. “You don’t want to be on her bad side, that is for sure!”
“When we meet Rikki, she is not in the best of moods. Her pack master has gone missing,” Overton explained. “That is a pretty big deal in her world. She is pretty determined. She won’t let anyone or anything get in the way of finding out what happened to him."
Overton also noted that in the upcoming season, viewers will finally meet the Authority, the vampire council that rules over all bloodsuckers.
“We really kind of see the politics and the power struggle between the Authority’s agenda -- which is to drink Tru Blood and mainstream this society with humans. You know, coexist. We see that and the fundamentalist vampires, who are subscribing to beliefs that they are superior to humans. Humans are merely a food source,” she added.
“So this season is really different in that there is a lot of politically charged drama, which is something that always existed within the show, but until now they never really fully explored it and all the impact it will have on the characters. ... There is a lot of characters asking what side are they on.” more at the link above.
FyeahJoeManganiello for the scan, he is also in the Hot Bodies issue (we posted Ryan's pic yesterday).
Skarsgardfans saw another version of the Everything is at Stake promo and posted more screencaps. Either this is an I'm sorry Pam or goodbye Pam scene.
HERE, I was linking to his videos and recaps (first from Afterelton) at LTV, within a month they were all over because the man is that good. His "Whatever Sookie" moments are hysterical.
Campblood and when the recaps started, then the vlogs I was in pigblood heaven.
I love a writer who is also a fan of the shows they review and in Brian you have that in spades. His recaps of Dexter are so good with his 'Deb You Taunt" feature so get to Campblood and read.
