Pam Kicks Some Ass at Comic-Con
“I’m on this show where they make women really tough and badass,” Kristin said. “And I spent the first part of my career with nobody believing I could be smart or tough. So, it feels to me as if things are changing – but I also feel like it’s really important for us to create our own projects and be really proactive in that area.”
The hour-long discussion wasn’t all serious talk, though, and when the conversation veered toward the inevitable Comic-Con subject of on-screen nudity, all eyes turned, of course, to the representative from team ‘True Blood.’ But as it turns out, Pam doesn’t really get naked: “I am the most-dressed person,” Kristin told the room. “The men are never wearing clothing. I kind of look at naked people all day, and my feet always hurt and I can never breathe – I’m kind of having a blast.”
When she first read the script for her bedroom scene with Alexander Skarsgard this season, though, Kristin started to think her number had come up. “It just said in the script, that I’m in bed, I get out of bed and I put on my robe. And I thought, ‘Ok, that’s not gonna be huge nudity,’” she told the crowd. “And I told my husband, ‘You know, I feel pretty good about being naked in front of Alex, because he loves me, and he isn’t going to critique my physique. But the crew …’ And my husband just had this blank expression, and I thought, ‘Uh-oh – I shouldn’t have said I felt comfortable with Alex seeing me naked.’ So I kept asking him what he was thinking, and finally he was like, ‘Um, the 12 million people who watch the show?’ And then I REALLY started going to the gym.”

I don't usually get this hopeless (ha) as an eastcoaster, I bailed and couldn't sleep anyway but that's another story. Looking for pics of the COMIC CON After Parties? The Nesters have a great compilation HERE, thanks for doing the work for us fans who pooped out early! JustJared's HERE, True-Blood.net's HERE.
The True Blood cast has been coming to Comic-Con so long now that their panel has practically become an institution. And like any well-seasoned TV stars, they knew exactly how to deliver the hotness:
Alan Ball dished out some faerie stripper action.
You’ve already seen the club – it’s not a strip club per se, as it is more a burlesque club. We will see other faeries and other people in various states of undress … Sort of playing off the strip club in Charlaine’s books, we decided to make it a club where faeries just hung out and had a good time, which sometimes means having their way with humans. We wanted to be more adult, more sensual … more sort of soft-core porno faerie.
Alexander Skarsgard and Stephen Moyer relived their trunk scene.
Skarsgard: That scene was originally probably six minutes long, and it ended up being like a 10-second scene because …
Moyer: We couldn’t do it without laughing. But we did rehearse it all weekend … We both received emails from Alan, the lord and master. So we ended up kind of going in to see the principal and getting our wrists slapped.
Rutina Wesley is digging her new tiny leather clothes.
I have the feeling that Pam pulled Tara aside at some point and made her up. I remember my mother called me on Monday and was like, “That bustier was rockin’!” And I was like, “Um, thanks mom?” But it’s been fun to dress up this year and kinda have them thangs out.
Alan Ball promised three new romances – and lots more sex.
Regarding new romances … yes, I can think of three that are going to happen. Three new romances this season. And … there’s also a lot of other people having sex. But those don’t really count as romances.
Joe Manganiello has a super-racy favorite scene.
My favorite scene of all time was Valentine’s Day, last year at the lake, making a Sookie sandwich with Alex. Two naked dudes screaming, “I’ll f**king kill you!” with Anna in the middle and, like, a wolf running around in the background. That’s ‘True Blood’ to me.
