Get Ready to Drink Up More True Blood, Literally

Anna Paquin celebrated her 27th birthday with her fellow True Blood costars at Comic-Con yesterday. The panel started off on an exciting note when Alan Ball announced that the official True Blood drink (it'll be "blood orange" soda) was a go, and the fun continued from there. It was interesting to see the scariness of the show combined with the cast's funny anecdotes about fang malfunctions, and it was even more exciting to see the very real chemistry between Anna and Stephen Moyer. We were treated to a sneak peek at the second half of season two — check out the video here — along with lots of fun tidbits from the cast, producers, and author of the True Blood books, Charlaine Harris. Here are some highlights:

  • First of all, Stephen Moyer is even hotter in real life than he is on the show. The British accent doesn't hurt either.
  • Harris has signed a contract to write three more books in the True Blood series, which means a lot more material for the show!
  • It sounds like the Eric-Sookie-Bill love triangle is going to come to a head. One perceptive fan even noted that in the sneak preview it looks like Sookie is sharing a bed with a certain blond someone. . . .
  • Anna on playing Sookie: "She's stronger. She's tougher. She's been through a lot. Unfortunately, she still gets herself in situations where she's likely to be killed, which is why it's good she has a vampire boyfriend. As far as how I play it, I just try to imagine what it would be like to go through what she went through."
  • According to Alan Ball, confirmation on season three is likely to be announced soon! Ball also hinted at what we can expect to see, including werewolves and a closer look inside the world of the Mississippi vampires.
  • The Comic-Con panel wouldn't have been complete without a Twilight mention. When one fan asked whether or not we can expect a half-vampire, half-human baby, Alan Ball scoffed, "On our show, vampires are either full-out vampires, or they're not vampires." Well played.

Hmm, yes. Why are there no True Blood recaps on BuzzSugar? The show is killing in the ratings, and each episode is ends on a cliffhanger. It's so addictive! You can't escape the show everywhere else, but seems to have very little exposure here. Odd.

@mondo Stephen Moyer is English and Anna Paquin grew up in New Zealand. The one who's Australian is Ryan Kwanten (Jason). Then, of course, there's also Alexander Skarsgård (Eric), who's Swedish.

Buzz, I would also like recaps pretty please! This is the show. I watched some of the Comic-Con panel and I was surprised of the accents and non-accents of the cast. Did not know the guy who plays Jason was not American, insane...And I imagined the actor who plays Eric to have an accent. Can't wait until next Sunday, yesterday's ep was pretty good.

I love Eric - he is hot and has such a sense of humor. I love the scene where he is in the basement and has the foil in his hair and asks did I get any blood in my hair? And he's way better for Sookie. I can't stand Bill (character wise). Pam's a trip too.

Agree with divinedebris, I want Eric with more screen time. Even Tara, Sam, anyone on this show has more screen time than Eric. And he has amazing potential.

I'm not shocked the have chemistry, they've been dating for a while I do believe. I really enjoy this show, it keeps me coming back for more every week. I would love for Eric to have more screen time because I think he's so much better looking than Bill there. It's a great series and I can't wait to see how this season plays out.

Is this Stephen Moyer? He looks even uglier in real life than he is on the show. This guy is NOTHING interesting, he looks so old (remember, he plays a vampire). * "She's stronger. She's tougher." When I think about Sookie, I think about a lame and weak girl, I stopped watching it, maybe things have changed, or maybe Anna P. is a bad actress. Right, I know, Anna P. is a bad actress. I don't know why people watch it, True Blood is a sh*t.
