Wetpaint Entertainment chatted with Giles Matthey, who is playing Claude in True Blood Season 5! We know this storyline won’t be involving Eric directly, but it will be involving Sookie – as you’ll soon find out! That’s why we’re sharing it with you!

Below is a portion of their interview with Giles Matthey!
What can you tell us about Claude?
He plays quite a prominent role in the books. But True Blood and the Charlene Harris novels they’re very different and there’s no secret to it. Claude is a fairy and he is related to Sookie’s grandfather who was part fairy or even full fairy.
In the book, he was a really pretty bodybuilder/insane body male stripper and just uber hunk. They’ve gone slightly for a different Claude in picking me [laughs]. I don’t have any muscle mass and I wouldn’t say I’m a hunk of 2012 or anything.
Without giving too much away he kind of goes into Sookie being a fairy and what that means to her and what that means to the fairies in general. He has sisters as well, quite a few sisters.
It will be really interesting to see, because last season, the fairies were portrayed in such a way and it will be interesting to see how the audience views fairies in this up-and-coming season and on.
So, we learn more about fairydom?
Yeah, there is a focus on fairies. That’s not exactly a secret, with all the casting calls. I’ve been a real geek because I love to see who’s been cast.
A lot of questions are answered regarding that whole side to True Blood. It’s always evolving. These writers are so good at what they do …. Some of the dialogue is just amazing and borderline outrageous, which is just brilliant.
What else can you say about season 5?
They’re coming to the end of the season …. It’s all building up to something. And I have absolutely no idea what it’s building up to.

I don’t know…if the last couple of seasons are any indication of what we can expect for season 5, then we’re probably going to be disappointed once again. I am curious to find out how they’re going to
destroy change the character of Claude on True Blood. I just hope they won’t take up too much time on-screen, away from our couple and that this storyline will make sense.
It certainly seems like Giles Matthey has read the books though!
