Party Down with True Blood's Lizzy Caplan

there is more with Amy ...

IGN: I wanted to ask you about True Blood. Writing for a TV site, it quickly becomes obvious how passionate some of the fans of that show are.

Caplan: Totally.

IGN: Have you had any rabid True Blood fans come up to you?

Caplan: Yeah, I've gotten more of that for True Blood than anything else I've ever done, combined. Which is great, because there's something about sci-fi fans and fantasy fans… Because I experienced it a little bit from doing Cloverfield too. They're just generally kinder and more accepting and nicer and really love what you're doing. As opposed to trying to pick you apart for it. And True Blood, I'm definitely a fan of that show, so the fact that people like it is really cool.

IGN: Did you know when you got the part what her ultimate fate was going to be?

Caplan: I did. I knew the whole thing from the get go. But I didn't know it was going to be such a fun thing to shoot, so it ended up being sad having to leave.

IGN: Unlike some other shows, when someone dies on a show like True Blood, it seems there is always a window for them to be seen again, whether via flashbacks, dreams or a supernatural way. Is that something you'd be up for?

Caplan: Alan [Ball] had sort of mentioned something. I never hold my breath for that type of thing. I would go back in a second. But it's funny, because my character – it seemed like a lot of fans really detested that character, because she was so hateful and sociopathic, so I don't know how eager people are to have her come back. [Laughs]

IGN: But if the opportunity was there…

Caplan: I'll do it! It was a blast.
