Exclusive: 'True Blood's' Lesbian Vampire Queen Evan Rachel Wood Chats Up SheWired!

It’s been quite a week for HBO’s critical and ratings darling True Blood. First, Sunday’s Season 2 finale finally found a way to answer the question of how to kill maenad Maryann Forrester (Michelle Forbes) but then left us with a slew of new questions: What is Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin)? Who kidnapped vampire Bill (Stephen Moyer)? What’s going on with young lovers Hoyt (Jim Parrack) and Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll)? And for LGBT fans of the show, will we see more of Evan Rachel Wood’s lesbian vampire queen Sophie Anne?

Then, on Monday series creator/writer/director Alan Ball revealed to Entertainment Weekly that next summer’s third season will feature more vampire royalty when we meet the vampire King of Mississippi (the recently cast Denis O’Hare, Milk) who will share scenes with Wood.

And if the week of True Blood news wasn’t enough, ratings for the finale were up 100 percent compared with the Season 1 capper, but down slightly from the penultimate episode of Season 2. Still, the 5.1 million viewers is nothing to turn your nose up at considering the show airs on pay cabler HBO.

I look forward to more of Sophie-Anne. In the finale she was much better.

I didn't like her at all. I'm not looking forward to seeing on screen so much. O.k if the plot requires her presence because of Bill's betrayal and the V staff it could be fine but pleaseeee don't give her a big storyline.
Instead, I would rather see more Pam, she is fabulous,stunning..
I hope they 'll give her more screen the third season and give her a storyline because she deserves it, in the few episodes she appeared last season she was great.

She was better in the finale but she was also on screen less then she was in episode 11.
Maybe she'll be better in Season 3 but I won't hold my breath. :)
