We are less than two weeks away from the June 13th premiere of True Blood Season 3 and the promotional train is on its way to the station. During a recent interview with Parade.com, Rutina Wesley, who plays Sookie's best friend in the world Tara, answered a wide breadth of questions on the upcoming season. The best part that I think she offered was that the season is going to be packed full of more sex and violence. Yay!
Wesley said in the interview â€œOh, of course. Youâ€™re gonna get some sex, youâ€™re gonna get some violence. I would say that this season is very action-packed. There are a lot of action scenes, a lot stunts.â€
I think that's been pretty obvious from all of the trailers and minisodes we've seen so far but I'm certainly happy to have it confirmed. True Blood is infamous for its sex and violence and for dancing over the line on what's considered "too much" for even an HBO show. Wesley adds that so far nothing has been "too much" for this show - "I never think itâ€™s too far because itâ€™s True Blood. I mean, anything could happen."
And that's why we love it so much isn't it? My favorite quote from the interview is from Wesley explaining why millions of fans love True Blood so much. â€œItâ€™s reality meets fantasy. That means anything can happen at any time. And that creates the drama and the comedy, and, sometimes, the ridiculousness of it all. Sometimes itâ€™s like, Really? Am I watching what I think Iâ€™m watching? Yes, youâ€™re watching an orgy in the middle of the woods and people are really enjoying themselves. And people canâ€™t help but just watch.â€
Amen to that! I can't wait to get a sip of True Blood.
