There are a few little snippets of interest for truebies around today.
I can never think of a catchy title for posts like this….. “Another, Another Bon Temps Update” maybe?
First up new vampire “Ronnie” has been cast to appear in at least episodes 1 to 3. He will be played by Dustin Ingram.
This is the original casting call for the role:
[RONNIE] MALE, 20s. He is a tall dangerous vampire who devours humans. RECURRING CO-STAR
Next up Jurnee Smollett-Bell (Nicole) is kindly donating a lunch and a set visit to the True Blood Season 7 set in aid of “Artists For A New South Africa” ( in association with HBO).
You can check out the auction over at Charitybuzz
The visit is to “take place before Season 7 completes shooting at the beginning of June”.
This is really cool thing for Jurnee to do, and hopefully they will raise loads of money.
One of my current very favourite True Blood people, Amelia Rose Blaire, has given another interview, this time to College TV. The interview is 28 minutes long and Amelia talks about a whole range of stuff, including Willa’s famous turning scene, which gives me a good excuse to post a picture from one of my top 10 True Blood scenes ever.
Sorry I couldn’t resist, I’m feeling particularly Viking starved this week :)
Amelia also mentions that fans are going to be happy with the final season:
Hopefully that means we will be pleasantly surprised by how much we see of her Daddy! She only knows what is going to happen in the first half of the season and not how it is going to end. Amelia also mentions how people “Freaked out” when Eric was set on fire and death threats were sent. (Seriously? I still can’t believe people actually do that!)
You can watch the whole interview at College TV from USC Cinematic Arts
Amelia has also taken time out to visit the Children’s Hospital of Orange County, and talk to patients and their families at the “Seacrest Studios”. You can see details of her visit here – another completely cool thing by a member of the True Blood cast.
