Kristin Bauer van Straten gave some little tidbits about working on Season 5 of True Blood and working with co-star (and vamp daddy) Alexander Skarsgård.

“Every year I think, ‘We’ve kinda done it.’ Every year I think ‘Wow, that was better than last year. These story lines and these scenes and the cast…I don’t think they could get any better.’ ”

So says Kristin Bauer—who plays scene stealing vamp-extraordinaire Pam on True Blood—when we asked what’s to come for the fangtastic HBO show. “And that’s how I feel about [season] five,” K.B. told us from the set.

So what sort of outrageous things will Pam say this season? And what’s it like for the gal to work with Alexander Skarsgård now that he’s a big, huge movie star?

First off, the gushing: “Every script I get I go, ‘Oh my god, that’s better than I thought it would be.’ And wardrobe fittings, ‘Oh my god, that’s better than I could have imagined,’ ” Bauer practically hyperventilated.

But scoop-wise, Bauer stayed tight-lipped on the secrets of season five: “I have a pretty good inkling about [what's to come]. And I can’t tell you anything.” Though she did tease that we should not only expect more totally over-the-top outfits from Pam, but also more R-rated one-liners.

“We thought last year’s gash in the sundress might be that point and apparently that wasn’t!” Kristen told us when asked the writers ever give her something to say that’s just too much.

“It feels like it’s just in kind. We’re just continuing with all the goodness we’ve had before,” Kristin continued about the naughtiness to come. “I don’t know if you can get much worse than gash in a sundress, but we can certainly stay in the ballpark.”

And as for her onscreen maker, Mr. A.Skars—ya know, now that he’s living on the big screen in flicks like Straw Dogs and Battleship—well, Kristen says he’s par for the course as well:

“He’s the same guy…We’re buddies,” she laughed when we wondered whether he’d changed since the beginning of True Blood. “But watch I’ll go watch the movies and then get starstruck all of a sudden.”

Trust us, we already have been. And starstruck is not a bad thing to be when it comes to Skars, not at all.

    Thanks Jody!

    I know the actors have to be tight lipped about the upcoming season, but I was glad to hear that we’ll have some more hilarious and shocking one-liners from Pam. Her comedic timing and dead pan delivery is amazing! Not to mention how fabulous her wardrobe is. Love Pam!

    I am so excited about season five, and Kristin just managed to stoke the fires even more!

  3. Marlene Emmett says:

    I love how Kristin described Alexander.
    She’s really excited for his success.

    Yeah, now that Lorena is finally dead, the wardrobe lady needs something to get excited about! LOL!

    I didn’t think the gash line was that great…the “precious fairy vagina” one is the one that worked on SO many levels. LOL!

    Can’t wait for Pam one-liners in S5. Agree that I wasn’t impressed with the gash in a sundress line. Wasn’t even sure what the term meant in that context. Had to look it up to find out that it can be used as derogatory term for vagina. Don’t know why the writers thought it would be shocking. Maybe if Pam said a cunt in a sundress, and the scene didn’t have 5 fuck Sookies in it, then it would have been more impactful. Precious fairy vagina was more shocking and hilarious.

    I like Pam character I think she is one of the best in True Blood in fact I think the show could be more entertaining just with stories about Eric,Sookie and Pam, at least I’d enjoy it very much. And, of course, she’s a lucky actress, I’d kill to be near Alexander Skarsgard, only for a little kiss in my forehead.

    I love that Alex and Kristin are real friends. I think it adds to their portrayal of Eric and Pam. Hope they have something good for our Pam this year.

    And I agree about the “fairy vagina” line….that was funny!
