Rutina Wesley Interview with Rolling Stone

Rutina Wesley was interviewed by Rolling Stone Magazine about Tara’s vampire transformation on True Blood this season. They also ask her about Stephen Moyer directing (the next episode, 508) and her reaction to Comic-Con.

Tara has had such a rough go of it in the first few seasons, but now it seems that becoming a vampire is the best thing that’s ever happened to her. Do you think that’s accurate?
I don’t know if it’s the bestthing that’s ever happened to her, but I think it’s going to end up being that because when you have to face something that you actually hate and learn to love it, it’s a complete transformation. So, yes, it’s the best and worst thing. To her, it would probably be like, “This sucks!” – no pun intended – but, I think when she finally embraces who she is, like in the last couple of episodes when she’s like, “OK, I’m a vampire. I’ve got to feed and I’ve got to deal,” I think she’ll start to understand [her situation] more, and I think that’s important for her own personal growth.

This past Sunday’s episode had Lettie Mae coming face-to-face with her now-vampire daughter.
It’s a very unique dynamic, me and my mother. Adina Porter is amazing. Getting to work with her again has been great. And Tara stands up to her mom: “You know what? Cool. If you want to go, go. But stop torturing me, because you’re gonna see me again.” It’s my favorite episode because I got to do a very sensual, sexy dance on a pole, and it’s awesome! [Laughs] Dancing is my first love.

Stephen Moyer directed the July 29th episode of True Blood – how did he do?
He did amazing! He’s so lovely. It was nice to work with somebody that you know so closely and see that person live out another part of their dream, and see him do it so well. He was such a sweetheart to me and he was just open and made us feel very safe. It was just like family.

There is lots more! Read the whole thing at the source.

504 Eric Pam good tara thornton season 5 rutina wesley true blood cast pam debeaufort kristin bauer eric northman ep 4 well meet again alexander skarsgard

by John P. Johnson/HBO

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.”

TVLine has an exclusive interview with Rutina Wesley about her fate that was finally revealed after months of speculation.

TVLINE: How long have you known?
I’ve known since last season. Three quarters of the way through last season I found out.
TVLINE : What was your reaction?
I was initially terrified because I was being shot in the head. [Laughs] I was like, “Where is that going to lead?” But I was also excited because I was going to be able to create a whole new Tara in a way, and explore a whole new physicality.
TVLINE: Was there a part of you that was like, “Damn, now I have to wear those uncomfortable fangs and contact lenses!”
Yes. There was a point when Stephen [Moyer] came up to me in the makeup trailer and said, “Still enjoying being a vampire?” [Laughs] It is difficult. It’s a whole new routine you have to get used to. But it’s been so much fun.
TVLINE: What was it like the first time you saw yourself with the fangs in?
I took a bunch of goofy pictures in my trailer. I was looking at myself and like, “Oh my God!” It was very weird getting used to seeing my face with fangs popping out. The thing that’s hard is talking with them. We have this thing that if you can say Sookie Stackhouse then you’re good. Read More »
