Our good friend, Chelsea Mueller from Heroes and Heartbreakers, (as well as the Vampire Book Club) has written a brilliant article on why she’s on Team Eric, and the overall appeal of Eric Northman as a character! We thought you might be interested in reading it too!
Here are some highlights from her post;
I’d be falling all over myself for the Viking vampire regardless of who portrayed him on the hit HBO show True Blood. Sure, the Swedish actor is a bonus, but from the first time Eric appeared on the page, then on screen, he piqued my interest.
I often hear others say that Eric doesn’t really love Sookie or that he’s controlling. This is the real beauty to Eric Northman; he loves completely and fully, but in a way that is entirely other. His love is more about protection.
She talks more about his love for Sookie, his progeny Pam, and more details into who Eric Northman is as a character and why she loves him…but don’t we all?
WORD! WORD! WORD! AND…WORD!
In case you missed that, we happen to agree with everything she posted! Want to see if you agree too? All you have to do is read this great in-depth article in its’ entirety, you can read it here!
