Instead, Sookie Stackhouse, the mind-reading, vampire-attracting waitress portrayed by Anna Paquin, and her friends Tara (Rutina Wesley) and Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) were cowering in fear of a sinister Wiccan, played by Fiona Shaw, who appeared to be carrying on a conversation with herself — or maybe with someone else inside her.
When Paquin visited behind the cameras during a shooting break and sprawled herself across a director’s chair, she playfully declined to explain what exactly had transpired in this scene from the next-to-last episode of the coming True Blood season. “Would you want to know what’s in store?” she asked. “There’s something about anticipation that makes it more exciting.”
I haven't looked at this in a long time ..I will try to post some of these little gems again this season.
Bill house is real and was in bad shape when Ball and True Blood first filmed in it 2007 - it has since undergone a massive renovation but it is not the house used this season in the scene in the Season 4 when Sookie walks over to talk to King Bill.
This photo is from a recent visit - you can see all the construction and you can see how the left side of the house really looks. The big difference is the height of the new " fake" Bill's house, its so low the actual house is very high off the ground.
Awww .. everyone say awwww together. Here is the first peek we get of Bill's house from Season 1 episode 2.
The real Bill's house is called Roseneath Plantation and has been owned by the Means family since it was built in 1846. I have lots more about it here
