Brian Buckner talks True Blood Season 6
Summer is here and we have your complete guide to all the series that are turning up the heat this season!
True Blood (returns Sunday, June 16 at 9/8c on HBO)
True Blood is getting some new blood in Season 6. Creator Alan Ball has stepped away to work on other projects, and part fairy Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) has seen her ex Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) transformed into…something after drinking a vial of gore that once flowed through ancient vampire god Lilith’s veins.
Does that make him a god now? “We prefer prophet. Bill’s more than just vampire and has powers we’ve never seen a vampire have,” says new executive producer Brian Buckner. “Bill and Sookie are not going to get on so hot. But their not getting on is kind of awesome.”
What’s not so awesome? Humans declare war on vampires, and Sookie has to contend with the mysterious Warlow, who killed her parents. “Warlow is the oldest vampire we’ve met,” Buckner says. “Killing the Stackhouses — that was nothin’!”
While battles have brought together Sookie and hunky vamp Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) before, this season “she’s looking to date somebody with whom she has more in common,” Buckner teases.
Eric Northman vs Billith | Season 6 promo
Filming on location, Stephen Moyer who plays Bill Compton, seen getting shot on the set of ‘True Blood’ by members of a Louisiana police swat team. Los Angeles, California. April 15, 2013.
This is a rehearsal. Steve is dressed like himself, cause i really doubt Bill/Billith is going around in a blue t-shirt and dark jeans lol and messy hair (not ready for the set ykwim?). Steve is also doing a sort of “Billith scream” in one of the pictures. They can add nighttime in post production, it wouldn’t be the first time, Alex said it many times they film in daylight and edit the scene in post-production. I just felt the need to comment because all i’ve been reading today in the web was “OMG Bill is finally back and he can even walk in the sun”…which is actually hilarious. lol.
suppose that’s a bit harsh, but honestly chicklet…we..just..don’t..get it.

….magical growth spurt on promo photo.
…it’s quite the bag of tricks they use to boost Bill up so he can glare into Eric’s eyes. Let’s see, if they’re in the same frame, one of them will be seated, or Bill will be on a riser, or Eric will be on his knees (I hate that), or Eric will incline his head like a giant Swedish drinking bird. If they’re both seated, then Eric slouches like he has no spine or Bill sits up on his folded leg like a twelve year old girl at a pajama party. And side by side, I’ve seen Bill’s knees almost even with Eric’s crotch more than once. (feet out of frame of course) Or…they simply rotate the photo so Bill looks taller, and the walls get crooked.
Yes I’m being petty, but I’ve lost count of how many times they’ve shoved my guy to the ground so the other dude doesn’t look like a vampire miniature and I’m losing patience with this tom-fuckery. Blocking a shot so you can see both actors I can understand but it’s odd they don’t seem to have any problem getting Kwanten/Trammel in the same frame with Joe.
There is no way you can convince me that they don’t play favorites on this show. I won’t even start on the writing. I’d be here all day.
Bless this post.
What a huge difference how Eric and Bill feel about a family…
one of the very rare moments i allow Bill on my blog.
Le huge sigh. I love them so much.
He’s such a f*** piece of shit.
