DragonCon 2010 - True Blood - Sunday panel part 4

Sam Trammell, Kristin Bauer, Rutina Wesley True Blood Interviews

You know why I love covering the SCREAM Awards every year? I'll tell you why. It's because I get to talk to actors who I don't normally see at film premieres. Not all the celebs hit the red carpet at the 5th annual celebration of genres that don't normally get awards recognition, but the ones who did were fun to talk to - though hard to hear with fans screaming just a few feet away.

True Blood #4 Launching Today!

True Blood #4The fourth issue of the TRUE BLOOD comic is now available in both print and digital format!

Click here for a preview!

This issue tells the story of Sam’s attack on the evil spirit that proves deadly for the local population, and it ends with him having to recount his most shameful memory... a secret powerful enough to re-energize the wounded spirit. Outside, Andy and the Sheriff have discovered the dome keeping them all trapped inside Merlotte’s, but will they be able to break in before Jason recounts the dirty details his first time? The stormy night in Bon Temps continues, in this original idea by TRUE BLOOD creator Alan Ball.

Spike Scream Awards' 7 Best Moments: 'True Blood' Wins, 'Scream 4' Trailer Debuts And More!

"True Blood" wins for Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin
Can vampire Bill please magically adopt the adorable haircut that Stephen Moyer was sporting at tonight's Scream Awards? Because I would argue that he (heresy!) even outshone Alexander Skarsgård on the adorable scale. He won his award for that crazy sex scene Bill and Lorena had during season three. You know the one I'm talking about. "I don't know what all the fuss is about, doesn't everyone have sex like that?" he joked. Anna Paquin had a sexy lead-in in the form of Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder. "I love our fans so much," Anna said. "'True Blood' is the best job I've ever gotten to work on, and it would be nothing without being able to be supported by the amazing fans we have." Oh, and then the camera cut to ASkars. This is why we love the Scream Awards.

Alexander Skarsgård's win for Best Horror Actor
Why does Alexander Skarsgård get his own category on this list? Because we're madly in love with him, clearly. While Alexander accepted his award, he told the story of two kids he ran into outside who were really pissed off that he was in the Best Actor category after being in the Best Villain category last year. "Yes I did slaughter half a dozen werewolves this year, I did push a lot of illegal drugs—a lot of illegal drugs—and I madeout with a really handsome Greek guy, and then I staked him through the back. Oh, and then I had a really innocent girl in the basement for a while," he laughed. "But other than that, I think Eric was a really good boy this year, so thank you." We'll just toss "True Blood" winning Best TV Show in with this too.

Kristin Bauer reveals 'True Blood' hopes

Kristin Bauer has revealed that she would love the fourth season of True Blood to feature scenes from the original books by Charlaine Harris.

In Harris's fourth novel Dead To The World, Eric loses his memory because of witches and stays with Sookie for safety.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Bauer has now revealed that she would love the scenes to appear in the television show.

"The storyline with Eric losing his mind next year may happen, which I think would be very hysterical," she said. "[Alexander Skarsgård, who plays Eric,] is an extremely comedic actor. He is very funny. A lot of people didn't see him in Zoolander and [don't] know how funny he can be. I would love for him to do that in his vampire character."

Meanwhile, Sam Trammell, who plays Sam, promised that the new season will be even more eventful than the last.

"What would that mean for me?" he continued. "I don't know. I just know I'll be taking off my clothes a lot."
