“Bill Is Very Much A Part Of This World”
True Blood was featured in the Summer issue of SFX magazine. Alexander Woo (co-exec producer & writer extraordinaire) was interviewed for the piece and we learn that much of the season will be shot through Sookie’s point of view. Woo also discusses why they thought it was important to keep Bill around and not send him packing to Machu Picchu:
“In this TV show, Bill is very much a part of this world. In the books, Bill spends most of his time in Peru and is completely disconnected from what Sookie is doing. We have found that Sookie’s story has the greatest tension, conflict and emotional consequences when Bill is there. I think the show benefits from Bill being there. We let Sookie off the hook a little less. In the books, Sookie is afforded the opportunity to enjoy various romances. For us, the inner conflict and turmoil on Sookie’s part is brought into much starker relief when Bill is a presence rather than just disappearing.”
