I do believe most of our jaws were dropping at the conclusion of this past Sunday’s True Blood (“Hopeless”) as Roman and Russell switched roles from executioner/executionee to executionee/executioner. In fact, there are some who are in denial that Roman is in fact…. goo.
Michael Ausiello of TV Line was able to grab some time with the man behind Roman to help shed light on what has to be one of the most surprising twists of the season.
Here is an excerpt from from the interview
TVLINE | Is Roman really dead?
You saw the show last night.
TVLINE | I did, but this is True Blood. Characters have survived worse.
That is true. For the time being, he’s dead. I think that was my swan song.
TVLINE | Five episodes is an unusually short run for someone billed as a series regular. Was this a case of you only being able to commit to a short arc because of your busy schedule?
I think what happened was they got sick of me complaining about the glazed donuts at the craft services table so they decided to off me. [Laughs] We had always decided that this was the way to go
Le sigh, Roman… you will be missed.
In my opinion… bravo to the cast who were at Comic Con for not spilling the beans. I know we in the audience all hope for some sort of hint during the panel, but know any answer could be interpreted many many ways. This one took us ALL by surprise.
Well, what do you think? Sound off below!
