Secrets of a baby vampire 'True Blood's' Deborah Ann Woll on being 'made,' losing her virginity over and over

Jessica, the 17-year-old “baby vampire,” is one of the few characters that Alan Ball added to "True Blood’s" script from Charlaine Harris’ original book series. She was a virgin when Bill Compton “made” her in Season One, which means that sex is always going to be painful for her: Vampire wounds heal immediately, so her hymen can’t stay permanently torn. Deborah Ann Woll, a Brooklyn-born actress, shares some of the secret vampire knowledge she’s gained from performing the role.

The place to go to forget evil vampires: Chicago 'TRUE BLOOD' | Actress hits Chicago after 'meaty' season

Her "True Blood" character has been kidnapped, tied down with duct tape, and subjected to mind games all season long, so it probably comes as no surprise that Rutina Wesley, who plays Tara Thornton on the hit HBO series, is looking forward to some rest and relaxation.
"I can't wait to reacquaint myself with Chicago," says the actress, who will be in town for two appearances today. "And I can't wait to get in touch with fans of the show who have been so, so supportive."

Wesley, who did her undergrad at Indiana's University of Evansville, says, "I'm hoping to meet up with a good friend of mine from Joliet and just relax down on the waterfront by Buckingham Fountain."
And after the season her character has had at the hands of psychotic stalker vampire Franklin Mott (played by James Frain), you can't blame her.

True Blood: A Sam Merlotte Sad Bastard Mixtape from JefwithoneF Houston Press

HBO likes to give us a little break the week before the final episode in order for you DVR people to catch up on what you missed. (Looking at you, Captain Mongo Nelson!) Gothtopia would like to take this week's column as an opportunity to talk about a plot line we've neglected over the course of the season, namely the evermore sinful tale of Sam Merlotte.

In the books, Sam's a pretty awesome kind, just a little hang-uppy on relationships. But increasingly in the TV universe, Sam's past has revealed abandonment, murder, robbery and just an all-around tale of woe. The thing about it is... it's really interesting, but the shape shifter's family history has absolutely nothing to do with the plot. It's just a diversion for those of us who think that the "Sookie is a fairy" storyline is a wee bit too RenFest.
