Kristin Bauer van Straten Sharpens Her Fangs On "True Blood"

The sweet yet lethal Pam De Beaufort is portrayed by the very lovely and less lethal Kristin Bauer van Straten on the favorite show of yours and mine, "True Blood." She puts the fangs away long enough for us to give her a message from her co-star Alexander Skarsgard and to hear about the only time she may be lethal is behind the wheel of a car. It's all in fun. Hosted by Oliver Trevena.

Why kill off Sookie's faery Godmother NOW?

I think because Claudette and Claude will be introduced and I think Claude will become Sookie's new fairy Godmother ( ala Lloyd who is Barry's )

If you are not a 'bookie' (a reader of the Charlaine Harris Sookie Stackhouse novels upon which HBO's True Blood is based) then it may have only been a surprise not a shock when Claudine (played by Lara Pulver) was murdered by Amnesia!Eric right before Sookie's and our eyes.
Claudine had returned to 'our side' to implore, then demand that Sookie return to 'Faery' with her. When Sookie declined her faery godmother's invitation, then stated firmly that she wished Claudine to take a flying leap...she couldn't have known that Eric was listening and would, with his hypervamp-speed snatch Claudine up and proceed to feed on her--fatally. (Scroll down for more HBO copyright screenshots that I clipped---plus the official promo photo stills from this episode.)
In the book series, which I'll gingerly tred around as best I can (some people may interpret this as SPOILERS so be forewarned), Claudine is one of a trio of faery triplets---2 girls and a guy. We've met Claude in the True Blood  Faery as a rebel fae who helped save Sookie from Queen Mab. In the books there existed a 2nd female triplet who is dead when Sookie's world and the Fae's 'collide.'

Charlaine Harris Sets End Date For Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire Mysteries Series

We all have know for years that the Sookie book would end at book 13 - but Charlaine is saying it now- a -days in interviews so the True Blood folks are going nuts !

Post in comments what the title of the last 2 books should be !

A little more than ten years ago, Sookie Stackhouse first appeared as the narrator and protagonist of a Charlaine Harris book called Dead Until Dark. After pretty solid sales, she returned a year later in Living Dead In Dallas. Then another book followed and then another until a new yearly entry in her Southern Vampire Mysteries was an expected, regular and high-selling guarantee. In the fall of 2008, writer/ producer Alan Ball adapted the series into the HBO phenomenon True Blood, and since, the Charlaine Harris novels have exploded in popularity. In theory, they could have gone on forever, but the author announced a definitive end date earlier this week.

True Blood’s Kristin Bauer Probably Won't Bite You, Especially If You’re Wearing a Cape

It’s difficult enough making it as a working actor, but it’s even trickier if you’re an actor on the HBO vampire-fetish drama True Blood. The show has a Cannonball Run–sized cast, with storylines competing, like a gang of prepubescent boys with a stick and a dead frog, to see which can be the grossest. If you’re in the True Blood cast and you want to be noticed, you have to either have explicit and blood-soaked sex in which you or your partner (or both) is bitten, mauled, disfigured, or had his or her head turned 180 degrees, or be a hot guy with ridiculously ripped abs who repeatedly takes off his shirt for no apparent reason.

True Blood's Alexander Skarsgård Transforms From Vampire to Viking!

The only thing better than Alexander Skarsgård shirtless on True Blood? How about the Swedish stud in a skimpy Viking costume?
If you agree, you're about to be very happy. The Swedish hunk is set to not only star in—but also produce—the Viking adventure flick, The Vanguard.
So what's Skars' upcoming project about, exactly, and what is his personal connection to it?
A studio rep confirms to us that the film centers on a pair of Viking warrior brothers who attempt to return to Sweden aft
