Were you left with more questions about Barlow than you were given answers to? Sure you were. Well, Rob Kazinsky MIGHT be able to shed some light on the subject but NO PROMISES!
As we saw last night Miss Sookie sussed out that Mister Ben is Warlow, even before his glamoring of Jason (who he healed) and his sending the King of Fairies into the same realm of from whence he originally came from. We found he was a neighbor of the Brigants and young Niall before he was turned. He found himself battling between his light and now dark side. I am confused because I thought the fae could not be turned, according to Alan Ball anyway but I will let that slide as this is not about him and I digress.
Recently Mr.Fairy/Vampire hybrid himself gave an interview with Vulture and he gave some insights to Barlow! It appears he did not even know he was going to be Warlow.
Up until this point, all you could say was that you were Sookie’s new love interest. And as the season started, some people were even speculating that Rutger Hauer was Warlow, not you …
Yeah, well, when a network tells you that upon pain of death you can’t talk about it, it makes you nervous! [Laughs.] And to be honest, I thought Rutger was going to be Warlow as well. Before I got cast, I didn’t know I was going to be playing Warlow. I thought I was just auditioning for the part of Ben. I didn’t know until about three weeks after I got the part! And I didn’t hear from anybody else other than wardrobe, who had my name written up on the wall as “Ben/Warlow.” And I was like, “Who’s what? Am I Warlow?” And eventually they told me that I was. I really wanted Rutger to be Warlow at one point. I was like, “Oh, that would be so cool!”
Can you imagine coming into work and you finding out you now have to play two different people? For me, that would being told I have to work for two different lawyers (which I have done) who vastly different styles and mannerisms. More power to you Rob and by the way, can you speak in your British accent more often? I find it very sexy! Oh, there I go again, digressing, like he is even reading this. Moving on.
Since we are confused about the fae being turned vamp, Barlow, I mean Rob gave some insight on that as well, somewhat anyway. Whether it will take away the confusion that some of us have, I have no idea. Read and judge for yourself.
So what are the parameters with vampire-faerie hybrids? What are all their powers and weaknesses? We’ve never seen one on the show before.
And he’s the only one that’s ever been made. Can he bleed? Can he cry? Can he have children? These are all questions we’re going to find out about. It’s kind of nice to be a new breed of creature. Faeries have never been the most fascinating of creatures on the show. They’ve always been kind of pathetic, let’s be honest. They’ve always been fairly weak. And here’s one who’s 6,000 years old. And he’s not only the most powerful faerie around, he’s the most powerful vampire around, too. And that’s kind of an intimidating prospect, if he were to ever let go, if you know what I mean. The best way I can describe him is he’s a drug addict, and he hates what he is, he hates being addicted, he’s been clean for a long time, but he’s prone to the occasional relapse. And if he were to ever truly, really let go, it could possibly be the end of all things. And the future of all vampires kind of depends on his actions. But you’re also dealing with a creature of immense pride, and if someone’s going to cross him, it’s not going to end up well. He has a temper. He has a dark side.
Well,I have to say for a 6,000 year old hybrid, he does not look half-bad! Does that mean I trust him? HELL NO but I will tell you what I do wish. I wish that True Blood would do the opposite of what we have been told about this character. We have been led to believe that he is the BIG BAD but this show would shock me if he was not what he has been touted to be. Nora said they got the vampire bible wrong that it was her progeny that led Lilith to the sun, not the people. I, for one would love it if BARLOW took out Bilith but I am not sure they have the guts. NOTE: My thoughts on why he spit out Niall’s blood is because he is an addict like he said and is still fighting his dark side, battling between the light and the dark.
