True Bloods Sam Trammell Talks Season 4 (Spoilers)

Taken From  NBCNewYork.com

Just how soon will Sam be getting naked? “Immediately,” he tells PopcornBiz. “Yeah, I won’t be eating anything for Thanksgiving at all.”

Trammell also offered a little tease about a major paradigm shift that’s about to hit Bon Temps. “There are gonna be some really cool shapeshifter-y things happening,” he says. “There might be a shapeshifter community that we meet. And I can’t say what it is, but there’s something that happened that sort of changes everything, something at the beginning changes everything in town. So it’s going to be cool, because you have the same characters and the same deal, but there’s going to be something that makes it all fresh.”

Trammell also said he just did his first script read with an actor who’ll be playing a major new character. “There’s gonna be a new character – a few new characters that I’m working with, yeah,” he says.

And fans won’t have to wait long for “True Blood’s” first trademark “holy crap!” moment in the fourth season: “It happens immediately,” says Trammell. “Pretty much right away!”

True Blood Season 4 Casting News: ‘Marnie’ Character (Spoilers)

Irish actress Fiona Shaw has been cast as the new character “Marnie”, reports Deadline.  Fiona Shaw is probably best known in the U.S. for her role as Aunt Petunia in the Harry Potter movies. 

Marnie is a mousy, timid and secretly self loathing storefront medium and palm reader who is taken over by the spirit of a powerful witch.

The character was originally envisioned younger but is being adjusted for Shaw. Shaw is currently onstage at Dublin’s Abbey Theatre in a limited engagement of Henrik Ibsen’s John Gabriel Borkman opposite Alan Rickman and Lindsay Duncan. On U.S. television, she previosly co-starred on ABC’s limited series Empire.

True Bloods Alexander Skarsgard Talks ‘Eric And Sookie’ And ‘Season 4’

Translated by google.com, Some of these questions have come out a bit wrong me thinks, lost in translation but we get the idea!
Eric Northman on a sofa in the Bayerischer Hof: In Munich Serienjunkies spoke to the nicest man in Sweden on the fourth series True Blood, Comic-Con and how his hair the fans to bring the screams.

In early October Serienjunkies-struck female hearts racing: one of the most beautiful men in Sweden was at the launch of the vampire series “True Blood“at the transmitter SyFy Munich. by Alexander Skarsgard has a large room in the Bayerischer Hof’s very young and almost a little shy. With a cappuccino it makes to the 1.90 meter tall actor in the old-fashioned sofa comfortable to Serienjunkies.de® are questions to answer.

SJ: In the series “True Blood” you play the Swedish vampire Eric Northman. Was it coincidence or actually examined the casting directors immediately after an actor who speaks Swedish?
You have searched in Europe and the USA for the right performer. In the end, they really have found a Swede.

SJ: So you could say the scenes in Swedish accent.
Exactly. On the idea with the Swedish, we were not here earlier. Generally, they wanted Eric also has a very strong accent in English, but I was able to convince them that it was illogical for such an old vampire could not speak several languages fluently and without accent. He has, after all, lived thousands of years. But I suggested that we could incorporate a few Swedish phrases, so that Eric does not like all the other vampires, but is given something exotic.

SJ: Is Alan Ball happy to respond to such proposals? And there were other ideas that could bring you?
Alan is generally very open to any suggestions. A series is a joint process of authors and performers. At least that is on “True Blood” so. If, after receipt of the script have an idea or change a dialogue like, you can always talk with the author of the episode. They are very open to suggestions. It is an open dialogue and for me as an actor also very important.

SJ: How did the change in the haircut?
In season one I was wearing a wig. I had previously in the series “Generation Killplayed “as a soldier and had a military haircut. So I wore a wig and the first time after the first season we had had enough of the kind of thing. The wig finally had to retire into.

SJ: Will we see more in the fourth season of Eric’s past? The reviews were a highlight of the third season.
I hope so. These flashbacks also have a lot of fun to me incredible. One understands this character so much better. The authors are currently writing the scripts for the new season. Filming is to start in two months (ie in early December, the Red Note) – I really do not know what they have planned for the new season. It would surprise me, however, if there were no flashbacks.

SJ: Will we get to see in season four, the story of Eric’s memory loss? And with it a lot more scenes with Sookie and Eric?
Well, who knows. The series has developed a life of its own and certain liberties allowed in comparison to the books. Lafayette also still alive. (In the books it is the murder victim at the end of the first volume, note the editor)
It takes a certain amount of creative freedom for such a series. I must confess I do not know what will happen and it needs to know but not necessarily. When I read the first script, for me to feel like the fans who see the first episode of a season and are wondering what happened.

True Bloods Ryan Kwanten Talks About His New Film ‘Red Hill’ And Season 4 Of TB

Rueters)  Ryan Kwanten recently sat down with Lesley Goldberg to discuss his new Aussie western, Red Hill, what’s next for Jason Stackhouse, and his upcoming role as infamous murderer Charles Manson.

Here’s a little of what he shared …

HOW DID “RED HILL” COME TO YOU?

It’s been one of those Aussie surprises. It was the first time I’d worked back in Australia in about eight years. It wasn’t my intention to go back there. What I liked about it was the throwback to the classic-style western. The character that I play, Shane Cooper, is very flawed, and I thought it was interesting to play a hero who was fallible.

WHAT ARE THE BIG DIFFERENCES BETWEEN DOING A CABLE SERIES LIKE HBO’S “TRUE BLOOD” AND AN INDIE AUSTRALIAN THRILLER LIKE “RED HILL”?

The two main things are time and money. You really are forced to film things creatively for an independent film. With this film, it was almost like the hotter it got, the more insane and happy we got. You sort of have to have a chromosome missing to want to be a part of this business, and Australians are slightly masochistic, so we kind of enjoy sort of being out there at 3 a.m. knowing that the rest of the world is sleeping and here we are, this mad bunch of 50 to 80 people trying to make a film.

WHAT’S COMING UP FOR JASON IN SEASON 4 OF “TRUE BLOOD”?

Jason is so spur-of-the-moment that it hinders me to know what happens in the future. I tend to wait to see what the writers give me rather than standing over their shoulders waiting to see what happens. I’m guessing that he realizes he has to look over the crew that Crystal left him with. He’s probably going to try and get further into the police force to try and cement some position of authority in Bon Temps. If anyone should not be in a position of authority, should not be having a gun, it’s Jason. I just love working with Andy. The two of them are so polar opposites that when you put them on screen together, it’s an engaging dynamic.

HOW ARE YOU GOING TO PREP TO PLAY CHARLES MANSON?

Scott Kosar is the writer on it, and he also wrote “The Machinist.” He doesn’t get anywhere near the set unless he’s 100 percent prepared, and even before I signed on he’d done an abundance of research. I’m three-quarters of the way through “Helter Skelter,” which is the Vincent Bugliosi chronicle of the Manson murders. Then we’re heading out to Spahn’s Ranch, which is where Manson did a lot of his planning with the Family. We’re going to be shooting at a lot of the places where the events took place. It’s going to be disturbing and dark.
