True Blood actress Amelia Rose Blaire looks forward to what's to come on the HBO vampire series, as the show’s final season will kick off in June. Blaire, who plays Willa on the show, dished on the final season and working with series favorite, Alexander Skarsgard, in an exclusive interview with Uinterview.
Blaire’s most memorable scene from the last season of True Blood was likely when Eric Northman (Skarsgard) turned her into a vampire. The process, according to Blaire was long and arduous, requiring multiple takes because of all the faux blood involved. The big question for the character is whether or not she’ll regret letting Eric make her into a vampire.
“I don’t know if she's going to regret being turned,” admitted Blaire. “But I definitely think that’s she's going to be going through some emotional journey having to deal with the repercussions of what happened last season.”
Working with Skarsgard was something of a coup for Blaire, as he was not only nice too look at, but provided some humor to their scenes together. Asked to describe the statuesque Swedish actor, Blaire called him “goofy.”
“He’s really goofy! He’s really goofy and always likes to make a lot of jokes,” she told Uinterview. “So he’s a lot of fun to work with and of course he's very, very tall. He's like 6’5” or something, so he's definitely a figure to behold, but he's really nice and really down to earth. And he drives a really nice car!”
Although Blaire’s not certain about what will become of her character in True Blood’s final season, she believes that the show itself will end in typical True Blood fashion. “The end of True Blood is going to make fans very happy and heartbroken at the same time,” the actress revealed. “Because that’s what True Blood does best.”
