Five things about True Blood author Charlaine Harris

True Blood is so addictive that I felt quite bereft when the last series finished. The wait for season three (which airs in the US on June 13) became more bearable once I’d discovered Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse novels, which are the source material for the series.

True Blood’s scriptwriters haven’t stuck religiously to the books. They’ve invented characters, introduced new storylines and altered plots, but essentially they inhabit the same universe (or Sookieverse, as it’s known to fans) as the books. It’s hard to judge the books objectively. My reading experience was coloured by memories of the TV show; there’s no disentangling the two. As I read it was HBO’s characters I was seeing in my mind’s eye, which left me with a curious false memory – I kept thinking I’d been watching the show, when I’d merely been reading.

Kevin Alejandro talks about doing TRUE BLOOD

Actor Kevin Alejandro stars as Detective Nate Moretta on the critically acclaimed cop drama Southland, which is a raw and authentic look at a police unit in Los Angeles. From the beaches of Malibu to the streets of East Los Angeles, the series, which airs on TNT, is a fast-moving drama that will take viewers inside the lives of cops, criminals, victims and their families.

Having also given memorable performances on Ugly Betty (as Justin's father Santos), Shark (as Danny Reyes, a street-smart, tough prosecutor specializing in organized crime) and Drive (as car thief Winston Salazar), Kevin Alejandro is currently filming a role in Season 3 of the hit television series True Blood, returning to HBO on June 13th.

In this exclusive interview with IESB, the actor talked about his love for the unpredictability of Southland, how much fun he's had working with the show's great ensemble and his very different role on the upcoming season True Blood.

True Blood season 3, female character to die (spoiler alert)

I do not believe for one minute Alan Ball is going to kill off Arlene ...she might leave Bon Temps with the kids and be absent some this year or just with most of the events happening in Jackson, we won't see much of her....the female character that will die WE ALL KNOW is Lorena and as Sookie says "I killed her ass"

HBO's hit vampire show 'True Blood' could possibly be losing a cast member. According to E! online's Kristin Dos Santos a female character is scheduled to bite the dust.

Sources tells Kristin that "a female character" will die in season 3. E! Also reports that Carrie Preston who plays Merlotte's red headed waitress Arlene has been cast for "multiple" episodes on CBS' 'The Good Wife.'

According to Ryan Kwanten who plays Sookie's big brother Jason Stackhouse season 3 is about "halfway through shooting the season." So, does this mean that Preston's character Arlene is the female death? No! fans of the show everywhere are shouting. Arlene brings a certain extra something to the show. But it seems to be a big possibility that Arlene could be the character who dies in season 3. If you're a 'True Blood' fans you're probably wondering what will happen to her two children. Could they possibly end up with Bill and Sookie?
