Secrets of a baby vampire 'True Blood's' Deborah Ann Woll on being 'made,' losing her virginity over and over
The place to go to forget evil vampires: Chicago 'TRUE BLOOD' | Actress hits Chicago after 'meaty' season
Her "True Blood" character has been kidnapped, tied down with duct tape, and subjected to mind games all season long, so it probably comes as no surprise that Rutina Wesley, who plays Tara Thornton on the hit HBO series, is looking forward to some rest and relaxation.
"I can't wait to reacquaint myself with Chicago," says the actress, who will be in town for two appearances today. "And I can't wait to get in touch with fans of the show who have been so, so supportive."
And after the season her character has had at the hands of psychotic stalker vampire Franklin Mott (played by James Frain), you can't blame her.
In the books, Sam's a pretty awesome kind, just a little hang-uppy on relationships. But increasingly in the TV universe, Sam's past has revealed abandonment, murder, robbery and just an all-around tale of woe. The thing about it is... it's really interesting, but the shape shifter's family history has absolutely nothing to do with the plot. It's just a diversion for those of us who think that the "Sookie is a fairy" storyline is a wee bit too RenFest.
