Carter Matt talks True Blood season 7 and Alexander Skarsgard.
“True Blood” season 7 is starting to creep up on us, so why not present a little bit more fun and speculation on the ending?
What we know for sure about the way the show is winding down is this: The ending has the difficult task of trying to tie together dozens of story threads, and we don’t expect all of them to have a perfect ending. What we do imagine is that we will be presented with something that shocks us, and at the same time presents a little bit of hope for the future of some characters. (With that being said, it will probably come at the expense of others.)
Most responses you get from cast members about the nature of the grand send-off are pretty generic, but one actress in Amelia Rose Blaire (Willa) had an interesting perspective on it in a chat with Uinterview:
“The end of True Blood is going to make fans very happy and heartbroken at the same time … Because that’s what True Blood does best.”
Given that we are such big-time fans of all things Eric Northman, she also gave this pretty fun quote marveling at the mere stature of Alexander Skarsgard, who she has worked with pretty extensively so far:
“He’s really goofy! He’s really goofy and always likes to make a lot of jokes. So he’s a lot of fun to work with and of course he’s very, very tall. He’s like 6’5” or something, so he’s definitely a figure to behold, but he’s really nice and really down to earth. And he drives a really nice car!”
Eric is going to somehow find a way to survive that near-death experience on a top of the snowy mountain we saw in the season 6 finale … but for now, everything else about his character and the future is under a heavy lock and key until the show likely returns on June.
