Alexander Skarsgård ruined my life and nothing hurts. This blog is mainly dedicated to the goofy, adorkable and sexy Swede.

Moyer — who stars alongside Carrie Underwood in this Thursday’s three-hour event The Sound of Music Live (8/7c, NBC) — admits he remains mostly in the dark about what showrunner Brian Buckner has in store for the vampire hit’s final stretch. But in the following mini-Q&A, he shares what little he does know about the 10-episode farewell. He also opens up about the “sad” goodbye that awaits him and the one ill-fated True Blood pairing he’s still mourning.
TVLINE | When I spoke to Brian at the end of Season 6, he mentioned that this final season would be a reset of sorts for Bill. He specifically said that he doesn’t want to see Bill be an a–hole anymore. Reaction?
I think that it’s really hard. The characters can’t [always] be who the audience — or the actor — wants them to be at all times. That would be dull. A bunch of people loved Bill and Sookie together, but a whole bunch of people didn’t. So you can’t just please this bunch or that bunch. As [series creator] Alan Ball once said, “I’m not interested in people being happy.” And I’ve always said, as soon as you see one of our couples get together, you know [they’re] f—ed. As soon as Hoyt and Jessica got together I was like “No! They’re going to f—ing kill this, I know they are!” Because [that relationship] was so beautiful… I loved playing [Bill]. I love him. Whether they’re were things that I feel were done well or badly or right or brilliantly, I love him.
TVLINE | Brian also said the final season will focus more on Bill-Sookie, specifically the Bill-Sookie-Alcide triangle.
I know nothing. I’m directing the first episode, as you probably know, and I haven’t seen [the script]. We shoot [The Sound of Music Live] on the fifth of December and I start prep on True Blood on the ninth.
TVLINE | Wow, no break for you.
TVLINE | Personally, do you think Bill and Sookie are the endgame?
I don’t know whether they can be, given everything that’s happened between them. What Bill did was open up something inside her that she had never had before. He was the key to a new world for her. And maybe that’s all he was supposed to be — a window into that world. I don’t think that there is a right or wrong answer. I think a bunch of people would be happy if that was the story and a bunch of people would be pissed off if that was the story. I don’t read that s–t, so I don’t care, ultimately. All I want to do is do the show and have fun doing it.
TVLINE | What does Anna think?
She would have a completely different answer. She would probably say, “Sookie should go off and become a barwoman in New York.”
TVLINE | How are you feeling emotionally about this chapter of your life coming to an end?
Sad… You know what a crazy group of people it is. Around Episode 4 or 5 [of every season] we always start getting panicked about that season ending, because it’s a f—ing family. That word is bandied about a little bit too much, but it really does feel like [a family]. I’m going to be very excited about what’s to come [career-wise], but slightly bereft that it’s all going to be done.
The sun is about to set on Bon Temps, and Stephen Moyer isn’t ready to say goodbye.
The actor, famous for playing good-gone-bad-gone-good-again Bill Compton, sat down with The Huffington Post to talk about his role on NBC’s “The Sound of Music,”but also opened up about the final season of “True Blood.” He’s directing the first episode, but insists he has no idea what’s in store. And though he’s been rooting for a Bill-Eric sex scene, here’s why we probably won’t get to see that anytime soon.
How do you feel going into the final season?
I don’t know anything and I’m directing the first episode. I haven’t gotten a script yet and we start shooting in January. I’m really excited, really sad. It’s just a group of people that I absolutely love and it’s certainly the happiest and warmest set I’ve ever been on, so that’s going to be hard to walk away from.
Did you always know that Bill was going to be a good guy in the end?
No, but I thought it was great for the show. I’m a really strong believer in doing what’s best for the show and if that means being a sh-t then that’s fine.
What do you think about the possibility of a Sookie-Bill reconciliation?
I don’t know whether it’s possible given everything that’s happened. The first mistakes he made at the beginning of the relationship were definitely mistakes that were trying to protect her. It’s not anything he was doing that was necessarily bad. He was sent there, but he kept that from her purely because he didn’t want to hurt her and he didn’t know he was going to fall in love with this girl. I think that he will always be and always was a key for Sookie to unlocking her womanhood and who she became and who she is and who she was. She won’t forget that part of him. Whether there’s any possibility of anything else, I don’t know.
What about Eric? Do you think we’ll see him in the next season?
I don’t know. If I told you that I don’t know you probably wouldn’t believe me, but I don’t.
Do you have your own twisted fantasy about what you hope to happen?
Alex (Skarsgard) and I have been pushing for an Eric-Bill love scene for a long time, but they always said no. But our dream would be for my football team, West Ham United, to play his Swedish team, and would end up in some match-up that Bill and Eric happen to be able to get to.
That would be pretty great, but I don’t think Sookie would be to happy about that.
I’m sure Sookie would find a way to be part of the action. She usually does.
Hi there anon! :) To be fair the TB fandom is ‘pretty dead’ over facebook or the official board when the show is on hiatus. This changes usually when they start filming and actual news (interviews, photo from the set etc..etc) come out but this doesn’t mean the show lost lot of viewers and their respect and it sort of became a joke even to hardcore trubies (i was one of them so..)
Those spoilers weren’t really serious, Warlow isn’t coming back, that was a mistake made by the original poster who mentioned an old interview of Rob who called Season 6 ‘powerful’. The rest is pretty much accurate (new girl for Eric, Stephen directing and Tara’s mom) though i’m not sure there will be a ‘major death’ in the premiere but who really knows. It’s True Blood, anything is possible (and I don’t mean it as a compliment).
Well, we’re still approximately seven months away from the premiere of True Blood season 7, and while that’s ENTIRELY TOO MANY MONTHS, at least — at least!! — the spoilers have started rolling in. Thank you, TV gods, for giving us a reason to get up in the morning again!! Seriously, a life without half-naked Alexander Skarsgard on a weekly basis is no kind of life at all. And — are you sitting down??!! — according to the very best spoiler of all time, it sounds like Skarsgard’s character, Eric Northman, is NOT dead (I KNEW IT!). WOO-HOO!!! And not only is Eric going to be ALIVE, he’s — oops! I almost spilled the beans! If you want to know what’s on the horizon for Eric Northman (not to mention Bill, Sookie, Alcide, Pam,Lafayette, and the rest), you’ll just have to scroll down to our amazing, life-changing list ofTrue Blood season 7 spoilers
1. Eric Northman is getting a new love interest! Sorry Sook, but what did you expect, starting a big fat “relationship” with Alcide?? Apparently Eric will be hooking up with a new character named “Sylvie,” who is “gorgeous” and can “speak French.” (That’s all we know so far.) Why not a Swede?
2. Warlow will be back, stronger than before. Uh-oh. This can’t be good news for anyone, can it? Or can it? We were starting to get pretty fond of Rob Kazinsky’s face, if you know what we mean.
3. The first episode of season 7 will include a “major” death. AND Stephen Moyer is directing!
4. Tara’s mom will have a bigger part than ever. Does this mean poor Tara’s “life” is going to get even crazier? Her mom isn’t exactly the most stable influence. Or is her mom doomed to cross the line into undead territory? What would Jesus say??
5. Those creepy hordes of Hep V-infected vamps are nothing like the vamps we know and love. According to showrunner Brian Buckner, they’re “weaker and driven by a need to eat in a way that the vampires that we’ve come to know are not. They have to drink human blood in larger quantities and more frequently than before.” Yikes.
I am SO SICK of people who think Eric should just sit around pining for Sookie’s fairy vagina when she’s shown over and over and over and over and OVER again that she doesn’t give a crap about him. WHY would you even want them together? They’re horrible together, and she’s horrible by herself, and I hope Eric has tons of sex with his new French girl.
True Blood Season 7: Eric Northman's new love interest? [x]
Let me update this with the original casting call:
"Episode 7.2 ‘(title:TBA)’
Writer: Brian Buckner, Director: Lee Rose. To film around mid-january 2014.
Woman AKA Sylvie: 20s, beautiful, French. Must be French and speak French fluently. Love interest to Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) Episode 2 Arc, on the final season of True Blood. This role requires full frontal nudity excluding genitalia.”
"Thank you, but we’re looking for something a little less…ridiculous.’"
- Still such a fucking Viking, even after all these years.
As excited as i am for my next dentist appointment.
