Everyone prepares for nude scenes in a different way, but when you’re on a racy show like HBIO’s True Blood you really have to get used to being in the buff and it’s probably best to develop a pre-nude scene routine. Swedish stallion Alexander Skarsgard (Eric Northman) may be able to drop trou without thinking twice, but not all of us are as laId back as he is.
In fact, one of A.Skars’ True Blood co-stars has an entirely different approach to nude scenes. In a video segment for People magazine called People Chatter — which you can watch above — Sam Trammell (Sam Merlotte) is asked how he prepares for nude scenes on True Blood, which will premiere it’s seventh and final season later this month.
“By starving myself,” he answers somewhat excitedly. Sam didn’t explain his rationale behind this behavior, but we have a feeling it has something to do with looking his best on camera when his shapeshifting character is asked to shed his clothes. After all, it probably feels better to be in your birthday suit before hitting craft services.
The Fault in Our Stars actor was also asked which of his True Blood co-stars he will miss the most once the show ends, and instead of giving the diplomatic “everyone” response, Sam actually answered the question. Bold move, buddy!
Check out the video above to find out who Sam will miss the most, and be sure to tell us what you think of this rapid Q&A in the comments!
True Blood Season 7 premieres June 22 on HBO at 9 p.m. ET.
