In this interview with Collider, co-stars Rutina Wesley and Deborah Ann Woll talked about why True Blood is the type of show that works in other mediums and what it was like to see themselves in comic book form. They also talked about how Season 4 is coming (they’re just finishing up shooting Episode 4) and gave a few hints about how things will be different for their characters.
Question: What was it like to see yourself in comic book form, for the first time?
RUTINA WESLEY: I thought it was pretty cool. I think the images are right on. It actually looks a lot like me, so it’s awesome.
DEBORAH ANN WOLL: It’s a little surreal. They do a very good job, so it tends to look very much like you. In fact, my boyfriend and I were talking about how we can tell when they’ve found source material, like pictures of me either on the show or from publicity stills or photo shoots, that they’ve used as a base from where they bounce off from, so it is a little funny to know yourself in real life, see a picture of you, and then see that illustrated. It’s a real interesting round-about, in that way.
How are things different this season than with previous seasons?
WOLL: I think things are more complex this season. We’re playing more with these being greyer times. There is no black and white, or good and bad. Everybody has a little of that in them. How do you live in a society that sees the world in black and white, when it isn’t that? There’s a lot more of the politics coming into play. Vampires have to be very careful in a society where they witness Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare) commit an act of terrorism, essentially. How do you then become accepted again?
Where is Tara going to be at emotionally for Season 4? What sort of themes are you going to be exploring this season?
WESLEY: There will be a little bit of happiness, but then there will be some drama that’s going to set in. She’s going to go off in some other directions, but I think she’s definitely a lot more stable. She finds her feet. It’s a new Tara, without saying too much. I think people are going to really like where she’s going.
