Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer are both in NYC to promote the final season of True Blood. This afternoon, Anna did a great interview with HuffPost Live where she answered a number of questions about the final season of True Blood, as well as questions about her participation in the “Give a Damn” campaign, and filming Almost Famous and X-Men. Bill and Sookie fans will be particularly interested in the True Blood clip that is shown towards the beginning of the interview. The scene will appear in this Sunday’s episode. Although Anna is asked who she’d like to see Sookie end up with, she smartly declines answering the question, as she is well aware of the intensity of the True Blood fan bases!
Anna Paquin taped an episode of Larry King Now last week, and a couple of sneak peeks from her interview have surfaced. The first clip features Anna answering a question about True Blood’s high body count and how the death of two major characters has established that no character is safe in this final season. Larry King Now is available on demand on Hulu and Ora TV.
In the second video, Anna explains that all of the sex scenes are (gasp!) just acting! Shocker, we know!
Anna discusses the normalcy of nudity on True Blood in this third clip.
Anna discusses the “extraordinarily high standards” of working under the direction of Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Looks like next week will be another action-packed True Blood episode. And painful as it is to sink in, next week also marks the half-way point of the season. It sure is going fast …

Alcide is out of the shower, and looking for Sookie. She is nowhere to be found. He runs to Bill’s, kicks down the door, yellow eyes burning. “I know she’s here!”
Bill and Sookie are in his car, driving somewhere. Bill assures Sookie Alcide will not be able to track them, since he covered their tracks. (Not sure how he does that, must be it’s more vampire “magic”). Sookie is confused. “How come you can’t feel me anymore?” Bill explains that when he was drained in the vamp camp, he lost all the blood that made him the old Bill Compton, and now “the Bill Compton I am today has nothing to do with the Bill Compton whose blood flows through your veins.” Sookie is not liking this news, not one bit. “…you get a clean slate? … you’re not the same vampire who did all those horrible things to me?” Bill clarifies. “No. I have to live with the memories of what I’d done to you forever. I can’t acquit myself of any of it.” That seems to satisfy Sookie, as she replies with a simple, “Good.” There’s silence, as the weight of their words slowly settles.
Bill reminds Sookie that she must take his blood so he can help her in the plan. He opens his wrist up with his fangs, and extends his arm to her. Sookie starts drinking. Bill drops fang, looking over at her with piqued interest. Sookie looks up at him, stating emphatically, “I have a boyfriend.” Bill retracts his fangs, and turns his attention back to driving. A small moment of humor that only those familiar with vampire urges would appreciate, LOL!

Holy shit! What the hell is going on here? Steve shared these photos Thursday evening, July 10th, on Twitter and Facebook. We don’t know if they’re deleted scenes from episode three or more to come in episode 4, but they’re awesome either way.

HBO released these two promotional photos of Bill from the upcoming True Blood episode, “Death is Not the End”.
This is it folks … no more news from the True Blood set from our two favourite actors or anyone else. Steve finished filming on July 3rd and now Anna has finally called it a wrap too. Don’t be ashamed if you feel a tear rolling down your cheek, we’re all feeling the same heartache as you. Luckily, we still have seven more episodes with Bill Compton and one last Comic Con later this month … I have a feeling that may not of helped.
Sadly, for Steve and the kiddies, their Montana holiday came to an end and they’ve returned to the noise and crowds of Venice, Ca. On July 8th, Steve was seen with Mark Larkin and his wife, Cerise Hallam Larkin, while wearing his favourite shorts.
Aha, it seems Just Jared had their information wrong about Steve being in Venice. Anna tweeted today that her hubby is still on holidays in Montana with Lilac and Billy. So, needless to say, we don’t know when these photos we’re taken, but in the long run … who the hell cares? They’re great pics!
HBO has updated their TV schedule and in doing so have released the last four episode titles for True Blood. As you know, the titles can be considered spoilery, so … what’s your take on them?
- Episode 7.07: “One Last Time”
- Episode 7.08:”Getting Closer … to the Ground”
- Episode 7.09: “Love is to Die”
- Episode 7.10: “Thank You”
Two days before we watch Steve on Live! with Kelly and Michael, he’ll be visiting with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show. These two have a brilliant rapport and have been wonderful fun in the past, so you’ll probably want to record this one too … set it for Wednesday, July 16th at 11:30 EDT.
This is the longest interview Steve’s ever done. It’s 1 1/2 hours of him reciting the phone book … Just kidding, we know you’d all be happy with that, but this is much better. You’re going to learn some intimate details about Steve’s life, including:
- How Billy got his name.
- What makes Steve laugh.
- A sweet memory about his mentor.
- Steve’s different names including James and “Dick” and how he chose his stage name.
So, get your beverage of choice, a comfy place to sit and enjoy some Steve time.
