Bad news for those of you that were planning on attending the True Blood event “Tru Blood 2: A Second Bite” in Sydney Australia next month – due to cast cancellations, the event will have to be postponed. Please read the announcement below. (Congrats to Sam and Nelsan, and we hope you are in the mend soon Joe!)
This morning Hub Central received a devastating call from the USA, to advise that tragedy (depending on your point of view) had befallen our Tru Blood event over the last few days, as none of our announced guests will be able to attend our event in Australia at this time.
Our beloved Sam Trammell has become a father to twins and cannot bear the thought of being away from them for a week (congratulations, Sam!); Nelsan Ellis is to be congratulated, as he has just signed on for an amazing new film project (congratulations, Nelsan!); and poor Joe Manganiello was injured on set yesterday (commiserations, Joe!). He’s devastated that he is unable to fly and will not be able to join us, as he was very much looking forward to coming out to Australia.
With the event so close and Dragon*Con in the States taking the industry’s time and attention, it has become impossible for us to source replacement guests for the line-up that you deserve.
But before you begin weeping uncontrollably and chugging V to quell the sadness, we have some good news; the event is postponed not cancelled! We are finalising the new date for 2012 over the next few days and are delighted to announce that our first guest will be the lovely Charlaine Harris, benevolent goddess to the True Blood universe.
Please stay tuned to our Facebook, Twitter and website for more news, which we’ll share as soon as we have it.
