With the rampant nudity on True Blood, one of the major wardrobe pieces is what the cast affectionately calls “The Sock of Destiny.” It’s been much spoken-of since the beginning, with Ryan Kwanten becoming something of an expert. As we previously posted, at the Prince of Persia party, Ryan shared advice for the other male actors on the set of True Blood when it comes towearing one: “Tie it on really tight, because you don’t want that thing coming off, because there will be evidence of that forever.”
It seems Stephen Moyer listened to Ryan’s advice, as his sock didn’t come off in the dirt or stepping in the tub (that we know of, at least). But damn me, what he did tell us is: “I veer medium to x-large”. Veeery interesting indeed!
Alex Skarsgard might need some help from Ryan, since it seems he would prefer not to wear one, but I have a feeling he does on the set of True Blood since I saw no dangling bits in the nude pics we were all so grateful to see the other day.
But poor Mehcad Brooks didn’t take Ryan’s advice seriously last season. In one of his scenes with Rutina, his sock fell off in front of everyone, and Ryan had to help tie it back on for him. Now that’s what I call a true buddy. And one more tidbit, it seems there wasn’t a size to fit Mechad on the TB set; they were all too small.
Just the mental image everyone wanted at the start of the holiday weekend…
