Kristin Bauer as Pam on "True Blood."

Ha- I really can't believe the physical transformation that Skarsgard if pulling off with Eric this season, by changing his facial expressions, walk and physical stoop. Amazing ...real acting

As the voice of pure vampire on HBO's True Blood, Pam gets to say and do things on the show that others wouldn’t. She doesn’t care if she offends someone and isn’t interested in playing any reindeer games with the American Vampire League’s Nan Flanagan (Jessica Tuck) and her mainstreaming movement. She’s true vampire through and through and that means being bloodthirsty, loyal to her maker, Eric (Alexander Skarsgard), and being fabulous.

The Hollywood Reporter spoke to Kristin Bauer, who plays Pam, about the challenges her character will face this season with Eric’s amnesia and the relationships she will or won’t develop with the other women of True Blood.

THR: We’re seeing that Pam isn’t quite into the vampire politics.

Kristin Bauer: Right. It’s very fun to find out this year that she’s not a strategist. She really is the least apologetic of anybody about being a vampire it seems. She’s just not a team player. She feels that this whole thing is ridiculous. She’s a reactor. She can't think two steps ahead, which of course is what is needed now in this post-Russell Edgington world. She’s smart, but doesn’t want to be in charge of making the bigger decisions. You know, Eric has patience. He can work angles. It was a thousand years or something to track down Russell Edgington last year. He bided his time and hung out with him and, you know, had a love scene with his lover. He can really play the game and he knows Pam can't. He doesn’t expect her to and doesn’t ask her to. It’s kind of an amazing perfect relationship.
