True Blood Actors Open Up About Their Characters Deaths!
If you’re feeling depressed about the multitude of deaths in True Blood’s season 4 finale, imagine how the actors who were killed off feel!
Kevin Alejandro, Rutina Wesley, Brit Morgan and Jessica Tuck spoke to HBO about their character’s deaths, and what it’s like being six feet under.
Kevin Alejandro (Jesus): "They were really cool about it, like 'This is nothing you did. Happy relationships are just boring.'"
Rutina Wesley (Tara): "I don't know what they have in store for next season. I haven't seen any scripts, so I have no idea what's going to happen. I'm either at death's door, or I'm gone. That's scary for an actor, but if my time has come, then my time has come — and what a way to go, saving your best friend's life. It's pretty cool that everyone's going to be going, 'Is she, or isn't she?' I'm excited and terrified all at the same time. I could be a ghost, I could die — it's in the hands of our wonderful writers and the creative mind of Alan Ball."
Jessica Tuck (Nan): "I was supposed to be in the first couple episodes, and I last for four years — so I am forever grateful for the time I've had on the show. Plus, the one good thing about being shown the True Death is that when you squirt with blood, you're not the one who gets covered with it — it's everyone that's in your way. Stephen Moyer drove a stake through my heat, but I then got him back by just covering him in gooey blood."
Brit Morgan (Debbie): "Joe and I were really curious after our first episode back this season, so we both went up to Alan and said, 'Can you give us any more information?' And he told me right off the bat how it would happen in the kitchen, just like in the books, and how Debbie just couldn't handle Alcide's feelings for Sookie. It's always heartbreaking to leave a show, but I've known since day one that his character was meant to go out this way. She's such a classic flameout."
Wow, who else is surprised by how professional and mature these guys are being about getting killed off? We knew they were great actors, but wow!
