Recently I got a chance to speak withRutina Wesley who plays Tara on one of the Best show ion television , HBO's True Blood.
Rutina Wesley is one of the Emmy hopefuls this year, and if you have seen True Blood then you know this is definitely an award-worthy show and Rutina Wesley is one of the people that help make it that way.
Rutina Wesley talked about what is coming up this second season for Tara, how she got into acting, and much more. So enjoy her interview below.
Congratulations on getting such good ratings for season two. How does it feel?
Rutina Wesley: It feels really, really good, and I'm telling you, I'm sort of shocked at the ratings. I knew that we had a huge following, but the fact that so many more people are loving the show, it's all great and positive.
Had you originally read all the books, or have you read them since doing the show?
Rutina Wesley: Well, I read the first book. Tara is very different in the books than they've decided to take her in the show. So after the first book I sort of didn't read anymore so that I could then create my own character along with the rest of the creative team since they had taken her in a different direction. But my mother has read all nine [laughs].
Did she like them?
Rutina Wesley: Yes, she loved them.
Do you think you'll eventually read them, maybe at the end of the show?
