True Blood

Michael McMillian Talks About Alexander Skarsgard’s “Inappropriate Personal Sendoff”

Aww! We were touched to read that after his character’s demise on True Blood, Michael McMillian received a special parting gift from Alexander Skarsgard. Even though Eric Northman didn’t tear off mewlin’ Steve Newlin’s genitals (yikes), he did force the ex-preacher into the sun, causing him to explode into a fiery, gooey ball of blood.

When asked to choose between those two methods of death, Michael told Entertainment Weekly he’d, “... like to die with genitals intact, I think. And it’s a fitting end for Steve too. Meeting the sun was, of course, the only way he should have gone. That was his whole thing in season 2 [with the Fellowship of the Sun], so it was a nice twist of irony at the end.”

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

But back to that gift! McMillian revealed that Alexander gave him “... a very personal sendoff in the gag reel, which nobody but cast and crew saw. It was somewhat inappropriate and somewhat hilarious, but beyond that I really can’t describe it too much.” The multi-talented actor also added, “There was a little skin involved.”

Oh, come on, Michael! Don’t leave us hanging. Won’t you share that gag reel with us, pretty please?!
