Over at the Huffington Post, Laura Brounstein has contemplated the reasons we are so turned on by vampires. I can tell you that they are just plain “sexy”, in my opinion. She has elaborated on what we all know to be true as to the why’s of this phenomenon.
I was bitten by the vampire bug early. I’ve always loved supernatural stories. You could say that I like stretching my imagination the way some of my SELF coworkers like stretching their quads. I grew up an only child, and I filled the childhood spaces that siblings might have inhabited with close friendships — some with people and some with characters from books and on screens big and small. It may seem odd, but my fictional companions were as important to me as my actual ones, and, in some ways, that’s still true as an adult. When Buffy (the Vampire Slayer) longed for Angel, her vampire soulmate, I felt her pain. When True Blood’s Sookie agonizes over Bill, I’m equally entranced. Recently, watching The Vampire Diaries, my heart broke for Elena’s travails with her wayward swain, Stefan, and I empathized just as strongly for Bella when, in the latest of the Twilight series, Breaking Dawn, she finally mated with Edward, with thrilling and terrifying results.
Getting swept up in the romances of these lovers and fighters has always felt more seductive and less scary than embarking on romantic adventures of my own. Stories about vampires and demons may seem silly to the uninitiated, but when done well, these otherworldly elements heighten the drama, as in any good tale. Vampires may be unreal, but they serve as apt stand-ins for human beings, experiencing the same highs and lows that come with loving, losing and surviving. Take the example of Buffy having sex for the first time with her boyfriend, Angel. Afterward, he changed, becoming cruel and dismissive. In his case, the alteration was due to a gypsy’s curse meant to prevent Angel from experiencing real happiness. But the reason isn’t important: How many teenage girls (or grown women, for that matter) have experienced the same scenario and been betrayed after giving themselves over for love? We all relate to the fear of being rejected when we let down our defenses and open ourselves up to someone. Buffy, like many women, dared to stick out her neck — and she got bitten. That’s one of the reasons we love her.
In some cases, it’s the vampire and not the human who is taking the greater risk in love, as Jessica’s plight in True Blood makes clear. To truly connect with someone rather than experience only a superficial one-night stand, Jessica must reveal her authentic self: She has fangs, she cries blood-red tears, and she possesses superhuman strength — she’s a vampire. Like many of us, she struggles with the fear that if a man sees all of her — her deepest self — he’ll find her too dark, intimidating, weird or frightening. In other words, if she dares to let her guard down, he’ll find her unlovable and reject her. Scary! Yet Jessica keeps putting herself out there. And each time she takes a chance on love, she’s braver about it. She’s able to be more honest about who she is and what she desires, growing ever more confident that she can find love, vampire-style. Isn’t that kind of courage the true definition of female empowerment?
There’s a simple no-pain, no-gain lesson here. The only way to experience something amazing is to open up and be real……..To read the rest of her article, go to: huffingtonpost.com
True Blood season 5 bringing on new,big,rebellious werewolf & more. According to Deadline, True Blood has been doing some more casting for its 5th season, and have revealed the arrival of a new, big, marine-type werewolf, who will refuse to bow down to the new pack leader.
The new wolf will be played by actor Louis Herthum, and is scheduled to appear in 5 of the episodes. However, he could become a season regular in season 6. Louis Herthum’s acting resume includes a role in the “The Last Exorcism,” and he’s also busy with another recurring gig on A&E’s “Longmire” show, so it looks like he’s rocking and rolling right now.
So lately, we are having alot of news about Mr.Wolf so Mrs.Northman is here to bring you some of that swedish Narnia snow back! (Don’t thank me, thank that fine swedish man for been actif).Anywho, everyone knows Mr.Skarsgard has been busy: 3 movies and i only had the chance to see one (Melancholia), in this interview, he talks about TB and his career:
You play an extremely popular character on ‘True Blood.’ A lot of people have played popular characters on television and sometimes it winds up haunting them. Between a Lars von Trier movie and ‘Battleship,’ is there a plan in place so you’re not known as Eric Northman the rest of your life? Or maybe you want to be known as that?
Well [pauses], it’s not so much like a career move or a strategy that I have. It’s more… I need that. Like, creatively. Of course, after ‘True Blood,’ I get a lot of scripts that are similar to ‘True Blood’ or very similar to Eric Northman — because people want to pigeonhole you. So it’s the same character, but in a movie set or whatever. First of all, of course it’s not a good career move to do that, because then you become that. You’ll get typecast doing that forever. That’s creative suicide. But it’s also, for me — I’m not going to do a good job if I do something I’ve done 25 times before. Because I won’t be inspired; I won’t be encouraged. There’s nothing in that script or in that role that I’ll discover. I mean, it’s already there, I know what I’m doing. I’ll just go there and I’ll show up and I’ll be whatever I’ve been for the past ‘X’ amount of years. So that’s why I actively look for guys like Michael in this movie, who is so different than Eric Northman
I’m curious how much input you have in this: During the first season of ‘True Blood,’ I found Eric a bit frightening, but I feel like there’s something more appealing about him in recent seasons — even when he does something frightening, I still want to be his friend. Maybe it’s the hair.
Well, that’s what I loved about it. When people watch something, they’re lazy. So they want to label the characters. Oh, “the hero.” “The girl.” “The villain.” And they sit back and it’s very convenient, you know? And what I loved about Eric — I always love when it’s because life is more complicated than that. In movies, I always love when there’s darkness in the protagonist. You know? And there’s goodness in the antagonist. When there’s more of a grey zone than just black and white. What I love about Eric is that when you meet him, he’s introduced as “the villain.” And the audience is like, “All right, very well, here’s the evil sheriff.” But then, after a while, you’re like, “Oh, wait a minute, that was kind of nice, why did he do that?” And I love that, that people had to revisit, “Oh, shit, well, actually, maybe he’s not just the villain.”
I know love scenes on set are nothing but professional. But is it at all different when the other two members of the scene are married in real life?
Not really. We’re good friends and professional actors. All three of us. So we know what we’re doing. And it’s like, I love Anna [Paquin] to death, but Steve [Moyer] obviously knows that our friendship is very platonic. So, sometimes it’s more awkward if you don’t know them. Steve knows that I’m not a threat.
Well, I’d be more like, “Oh, I hope I’m not imposing.”
Nah. And Steve was very sweet before we got in to all of that stuff. He said to me, “Dude, I just want you to know that I want you to feel comfortable with this and it’s not awkward at all. I love you and I know there’s no one I’d rather have doing these scenes with Anna and me because we’re friends. It’s not awkward at all and I don’t want you to hold back because then that’s going to be weird. Like, do what you have to do.” It was very great of him to say that.
But, of course, when people see a vulnerability that he can be weak and sensitive and kind and loyal… it is tough, because you still want him to be dangerous; he’s still a predator — so you can’t emasculate him too much.
