True Blood's Brit Morgan: Debbie Pelt Is On a "Murderous Rampage" After Sookie

While True Blood's Bill is off dealing with his own enemies, Sookie has a brand-new nemesis of her own.  Debbie Pelt (Brit Morgan), a crazed V-addicted werewolf who's engaged to pack leader Cooter (Grant Bowler), still has unresolved feelings about her ex-boyfriend, Alcide (Joe Manganiello). So seeing Sookie (Anna Paquin) around Alcide, Morgan tells, "pretty much sparks a murderous rampage in her head." She also told us what other mythical creatures we'll meet before the end of Season 3.
True Blood's Grant Bowler: Sookie is "more special than you think" How does it feel getting to join such a hot cast?
It's such a beautiful cast. It's amazing. It feels like one of the best and most awesome things that's ever happened to me. I was real nervous starting out. At the first table read, I could barely think straight. Everyone is just so easy going, despite how good-looking they are. Tell us about your character, Debbie Pelt. 
Debbie Pelt is a really kick-ass, passionate, ballsy woman. I'm a werewolf with a bit of an addiction to V, so I'm going on a rampage against Sookie. I'm not too happy with her. My character just takes this winding road, a bit of a downward spiral. I'm definitely in attack mode towards Sookie.

Bloodlines of True Blood explained

'True Blood's' Marshall Allman says Tommy Mickens 'really just wants love'

In Marshall Allman's own words, his character, shapeshifter Tommy Mickens, on "True Blood" is "bad ass."

From his default bulldog shape to his dare that TV older brother, Sam Merlotte (played by Sam Trammell), throw a punch to officially show he's family, Allman's words couldn't be more on point. But according to the actor, Tommy has a softer side, too.

"He really just wants love honestly," Allman tells Zap2it. "He wants someone he can trust, someone he can depend on, to be like a healthy family. Does he have any idea how that works? Hell no. But does he know how to get what he wants? Probably not, but we shall see."

Warning: Spoiler Alert!

So, when it comes to family, we hear he may have been getting the wrong brand of love. Will Sam be able to change things with some brotherly bonding?

The 10 best screen vampires

Max Schreck, Nosferatu (1922)

An unacknowledged adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula (which was banned in Britain after copyright complaints from the author's litigious widow), FW Murnau's silent gem still startles and amazes; the sight of the vampire's shadowy hand grasping at the heart of his victim ranks among cinema's most enduring images. So convincing was Max Schreck's unearthly performance that the modern movie Shadow of the Vampire would playfully suggest that he was the real deal; a genuine vampire hiding his identity in plain sight beneath the cover of movie magic.

Federico Luppi, Cronos (1993)

Debunking that most enduring vampire cliche, Guillermo del Toro's chilling masterpiece manages utterly to desexualise its antihero's bloodlust with extraordinary results. Having availed himself of the weirdly mechanical "Cronos" device, Federico Luppi's Jesus Gris staves off death with the occasional snifter of spilled claret. A scene in which he licks fresh blood off the polished white floor of a public lavatory is a taboo-breaking highlight that lingers in the mind. Luppi would later perform an affectionate cameo as King of the Underworld in Del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth.

Bela Lugosi, Dracula (1931)

Having made the role his own on Broadway, charismatic Hungarian Bela Lugosi became the defining screen count for the early sound era. A Spanish language version, shot by night on the same sets, is widely regarded to be a better-directed movie, but leading man Carlos Villarías was no substitute for the master, in any language. In the ensuing years, Lugosi would experience both fame and obscurity, famously ending his days working for trash maestro Ed Wood. In 1979, goth rockers Bauhaus' "Bela Lugosi's Dead" reaffirmed his cult status. Undead, undead, undead indeed!
