Rutina Wesley was recently interviewed by Rolling Stone magazine and provided some insight into Tara’s transformation into vampire in season five. She was also asked about Stephen Moyer’s direction of the July 29th episode of True Blood and had this to say:
He did amazing! He’s so lovely. It was nice to work with somebody that you know so closely and see that person live out another part of their dream, and see him do it so well. He was such a sweetheart to me and he was just open and made us feel very safe. It was just like family.
And when asked about Alan Ball giving up his duty as showrunner next season and whether that will affect the show, Rutina stated:
I think Alan set up a really good network of writers and we have a good foundation. Who knows, everyone has different ideas, so things may change, but I think we would always be moving forward in the spirit as if Alan was still there. He’ll be around, but it’s just more sad that his presence is gone. We’re gonna miss him, because his writing is amazing and he is amazing and I feel like I owe my career to him. He gave me this opportunity and – I start to cry – it means a lot to me. I told him that if I hadn’t gotten this job, I wouldn’t be where I am now.
