Kristin Bauer van Straten talked to E! News about her character Pam’s relationships with Eric and Tara on True Blood, and what it’s really like to work with Alexander Skarsgård.

Regarding Eric releasing Pam:

“We went to the writers, and were like ‘Wait, what does this mean? How will this actually be different? Will their relationship be different?”‘ All fair questions, but what’d the bosses say?

“Well basically they just don’t tell us anything. We’re going to have to see and evolve. The nice thing about True Blood and HBO is they don’t wrap things up, so this will carry over into next year as well. It evolves more like a relationship in life. So we’ll see. Pam is trying to find herself without that umbilical cord.”

Will being a maker to Tara (Rutina Wesley) make the sweet parent side come out? “You know she’s not the most nurturing. We’ll see glimpses of a softer side…it won’t last long.”



Kristin Bauer van Straten’s Reaction to Pam & Eric’s Emotional Scenes

The July 1, 2012 episode of True Blood had some pretty emotional scenes for most of the characters, but the most intense had to be the scenes between Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) and her maker Eric (Alexander Skarsgård). We had seen in the Waiting Sucks clip that Pam asks Eric to release her, but we didn’t think he would actually DO it.

From Celebuzz:

If watching the striking scene between Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) and Pam on HBO’s True Blood on Sunday was a tough one for the duo’s fans, Kristin Bauer van Straten says that shooting the story twist was just as traumatic.

“I cried when I read the scene,” Bauer, 45, tells Celebuzz. “I cried in the table read, I cried in rehearsal, I cried when the camera was on my back, because it just for some reason felt so real and personal to me. There was no ‘OK, now I’m going to act.’ It was just there.”

Kristin Bauer van Straten Talks Kissing Alexander Skarsgård

503 Eric Pam kiss Flashback 620x348 tara thornton sookie stackhouse season 5 pam debeaufort kristin bauer joe manganiello true blood cast eric northman

Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) and Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) share their first on-screen kiss in episode 503, ‘We’ll Meet Again’

After three stellar performances for Kristin Bauer van Straten as Pam on True Blood, she dishes on smooching her friend Alexander Skarsgård to Access Hollywood‘s Jolie Lash.

Access: This season on ‘True Blood’ it was revealed that Pam had gotten together with Eric (in her backstory). When you saw that in the script – and you’re friends with Alexander Skarsgard – what went through your head?

Kristin: I have such comfort with Alex and such trust that I just kept trying to picture what I wanted the scene to look like, because we’ve waited so long for this… We’ve known Pam for the last five years, and she’s 100-and-some-years-old. We know that she’s pretty unapologetic, she’s pretty blunt, she’s pretty harsh, she really only has affection for one person and then [as an actress, I] work my way backwards and go, ‘Wait a minute, what would be the genesis of that? How do I find the vulnerability? I have to show the vulnerability because we have to understand why she leapt into this other life and chose it.’

Access: You actually got to kiss Alex for the first time. He talks about those kinds of things as part of the job, but when you actually have to kiss a friend – after all this time – it seems like it would be a little weird.

Kristin: Yeah, I know. [But] for some reason, it didn’t feel weird… But Stephen [Moyer, who plays Bill Compton] and Mariana Klaveno [who plays Lorena]… they were standing right outside the doorway to that room in the brothel… So we kiss and [Alex] sort of scoops me and twirls me out of the scene — one of my legs is incredibly tangled up inside the skirts… I’m battling with this fabric and six inches from Stephen and Mariana who are staring at us like they’re watching their parents make out.

Access: Oh no!

Kristin: I look at them and go, ‘What?’ and they go, ‘It’s like watching our parents kiss.’ I’m like, ‘What do you mean by that!’ So there’s always this difference between the experience of filming it and then what it looks like, and I felt like when I watched it that it was good. It was perfect.
