Collider spoke to True Blood actor Chris Bauer about the season finale, his character on the show, and many more. Here’s what he had to say about his character Andy as a person:
How do you see Andy, as a person?
BAUER: The thing that I love about True Blood, that applies to my character and everybody’s character, is that it’s very much what you see is what you get. There’s not a lot of camera time where people monologue about things that happened to them in the past. You hear little bits and pieces that are plotted in, here and there, that usually end up having a story relevance, either in future episodes or future seasons. They’re very economical, that way. I think that every time you get to see Andy Bellefleur, you understand a little bit more of what makes him tick. There are a couple of specific biographical things you get to know, but more than anything, it’s the cumulative momentum that continues to give you a sense of who he is, so that you’re like, “Oh, okay, so he’s not just an asshole.” If somebody is emotionally underdeveloped and the only tool they have is to growl and scowl and yell, but they feel the whole spectrum of emotion, from vulnerability, grief, fear and loneliness, all the way through ecstacy and gratitude, that person has to end up alone because they don’t have the emotional vocabulary to express what they need. The best thing about this season, for me, is that Andy really realizes, once and for all, that he can’t do it alone, which is cool.

In a recent interview with TV Line, the former Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel spoke about the latest vampire craze and what she thinks about it:
TVLINE | Lastly, do you kind of have to laugh at the vampire craze that is so hot these days, when you and the Scoobies were doing it like 15 years ago?
I’m not surprised. I deduce the popularity to be all about the chemistry between the people. On Twilight, the chemistry between Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart … I mean, clearly they’re together [in real life], and it’s palpable in the way they look at each other. That’s what drew everybody in and made Twilight so incredibly popular. It is about that universal feeling of love and connection, understanding and protection, and sex, and that’s so visceral in Twilight. As far as True Blood goes, what I’ve seen of it is very sexy and raw. That cover they did for Rolling Stone brought out a dual side of me — offended that my son would see it on the one hand, yet intrigued by how daring it was with the sexuality on display. All that, plus blood.
True Blood star Anna Paquin explains why she doesn’t play more girly roles:
‘Truthfully, I’d get bored. It’s fun that Sookie gets to be super-cute while she’s kicking ass.
‘It’s cute in a kind of very traditional, obvious way – the dresses, boobs and whole blonde thing – but people don’t tend to cast me as a bimbo. I’ve tried but it just doesn’t seem to come my way!’
Variety film critic Justin Chang posted his review on the book turned movie ‘The Moth Diaries’ and from what I read, he didn’t like it all that much:
Themes of female bonding, jealousy and smothering possessiveness are dramatized with the same lack of passion that attends the one briefly glimpsed instance of girl-on-girl action. “The Moth Diaries” has no desire to offend, and to that end, it seems to go out of its way not to raise shivers, even in a blood-soaked hallucination that tackily invokes Brian De Palma’s mean-girls horror classic, “Carrie.”

TV Guide answered an fan’s question about information about our beloved Stefan ‘The Ripper’:
Anything juicy on Ripper Stefan on The Vampire Diaries? Thanks! — Val, via Twitter
NATALIE: Juicy is a choice word, Val. Stefan will be sinking his teeth into many humans. “He gets deeper and deeper and the blood starts carrying him away,” Paul Wesley tells us. “He commits to that lifestyle because the blood starts turning him into someone else.” What we want to know is, who’s going to bring him back?
Holy S**T! LOL! I can’t believe my eyes
