NYCC and Beyond, True Blood Style

Lucky Thomas-Thomas Smith II ‏@tsmith9191 11 Oct  Just met Kristin Bauer, @Laurie_Holden from#WalkingDead ! I'm in love!"
New York Comic Con 2013: Ryan Kwanten is 'True Blood' on-set crush, co-stars reveal during panel discussion (NYDN)
Actresses Kristin Bauer and Lauren Bowles kept quiet about season seven of the supernatural HBO drama, but admitted to appreciating co-star Ryan Kwanten's looks as much as the audience.Speaking at New York Comic Con 2013's panel for the show, neither Kristin Bauer and Lauren Bowles would reveal any information about HBO vampire drama's seventh and final season after the sixth season's cliffhanger finale.
However they did admit to checking out some of the on-set eye candy.
After mentioning how different Kwanten is from his impulsive character Jason Stackhouse, Bauer said, "He's charming and eloquent."
"And those abs aren't just painted on," added Bowles, who plays witch Holly Cleary on the show and does yoga with Kwanten. "Sorry, ladies!"
Bauer, who plays acerbic vampire Pam Swynford De Beaufort on the show, says she loves her character's confidence and disinterest in what other people think as much as her fans do."She's the kind of character we all wish we could be," said the actress, who has also appeared in NBC comedy 'Seinfeld' and ABC's 'Once Upon a Time.'
More NYCC 2013 news from the International Business Times-Season seven of “True Blood” unfortunately doesn’t start filming until January, so Bauer van Straten and Bowles didn’t have too much that they could reveal, but they divulged all they could for fans.The actresses joked that the whole cast lives in fear of being killed off (unless you’re Anna Paquin). Explaining that Joe Manganiello and Stephen Moyer usually know everything about what’s going to happen, Bauer van Straten dished on what happened to her when she asked the writers what was in store for Pam in season seven. “You’re dying,” she said of some of the things they told her about the final season. “Big death in episode 1. Actually you die in a webisode before episode 1 -- and we’re going to use a double.”
While that is obviously not true (hopefully), the actresses did dish out some actual spoilers. New showrunner Brian “Bucky” Buckner is trying to bring “True Blood” back to what drew everyone to it in the first place -- small-town drama. He plans to do this by pairing the humans with the vampires, with “everyone forced to be together.”
Viewers saw a peak of that in the season-six finale, but one vampire was noticeably absent -- Pam. The vampire was off searching for her maker, Eric, but Bauer van Straten joked that even if she was around, she couldn’t picture her character going along with Sam Merlotte’s blood-for-protection plan. “I’m a free agent,” she teased of her character.
Meanwhile, Bowles said that she’d love for her character, Holly, to “get back to her Wiccan ways.” Her magic was a big part of her in season four, but slowly trickled off. “I think her faith is a big part of who she really is,” she said.
And will there be any love in Holly’s future? “I do have a feeling she’ll end up with Andy,” she revealed. “They can’t just kill everyone, right?”
As for how the stars like to see the series end? Bauer van Straten sneakily replied, “End it in such a way that you could do a movie.” Bowles agreed, and it appears as if the fans do as well because the Comic Con panel crowd erupted in cheers.
And this is another version, lulzing-

This bit is from the Rio Film Fest via THR, Seems a writer wanted to kill off Sookie, which is the dumbest idea ever since it's her story. Maybe that's why Sookie acted so out of character last season, destroying her rep instead? - 
RIO DE JANEIRO – "In season 5 I pitched to kill Sookie, I really did," revealed True Blood writer/executive producer Raelle Tucker of Anna Paquin’s character who was close to disappearing from the show "because I think nobody should be safe."
“It’s a good feeling if the audience is feeling upset when a character dies, that means we have done our job right,” Tucker said. The TV writer continued to explain that there is a certain amount of death that they need to have because people are constantly on the verge of almost being killed, so if authors don’t kill somebody, "there is no point."
Jim Sturgess (Cloud Atlas), Sam Worthington (Avatar), and Ryan Kwanten (True Blood) have signed on to join the cast of Kidnapping Freddy Heineken, starring Anthony Hokpins as the kidnapped beer heir. Daniel Alfredson (The Girl Who Played with Fire) is set to direct the true story of the 1983 kidnapping of Heineken and his chauffeur which resulted in the largest ransom ever paid for an individual at that point (about $50 million today).

He'd be excellent in the part, even if it is done as animation.
