True Blood’s Rutina Wesley: Season 3 Is ‘Very Action-Packed’

After just two seasons, True Blood has drawn millions of viewers and made stars of its colorful cast of human and not-quite-human characters. And now the HBO hit is back, with brand-new episodes premiering June 13.

Rutina Wesley plays Tara Thornton, the quick-tempered, defensive best friend of the show’s heroine, Sookie Stackhouse. The actress talked to about Tara’s trademark tough exterior, the surprises that lay in store for fans and what she thinks about the headline-making romance between co-stars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer.

Does Tara feel left out of the supernatural powers club?
“Absolutely not. She loves being human. I think she’s like, ‘WTF? What is going on?’ I think Tara is the truth, I think she’s the truth factor in True Blood. She sees everything like it is, she tells it like it is. And I enjoy playing a human being thrust into this world. It’s great. It creates a lot of drama, because it’s like How do the humans feel about this? If vampires and werewolves were walking around today, there would be chaos. People would be losing their minds.”
