True Blood Quotes by Alexander Skarsgard, Joe Manganiello, Robert Kazinsky, Chris Bauer, Ashley Jones, Michelle Forbes and many others.
To go from ‘Generation Kill,’ which is a very real, dark, gritty series, to ‘True Blood,’ which is flamboyant, crazy, way out there… I couldn’t ask for two better jobs.
I’ve always been an athletic guy, but the extent to which I go for ‘True Blood’ or for ‘Magic Mike’ is because of the role that I’m playing.
What ‘True Blood’ does really well is that it balances on the line between good and evil – you blur the distinction between the two.
I really feel like ‘True Blood’ is a big, giant slice of cake for the audience every week; it’s offering people 60 minutes of sometimes thought-provoking entertainment. If you’re gonna give an Emmy out, you should probably give it to the audience of ‘True Blood.’
I think if people want to go back and look at season two of ‘True Blood,’ I’m proud of my work in that.
‘True Blood’ is one of those shows that is so deep and good that you can’t have it on in the background. It’s one of those shows that you have to dedicate time to.
I had so many offers after ‘True Blood’ for things that were someone in the same vein, but nowhere near Alan Ball’s vision. Or something that was over-the-top and fantastical. And I’ve always wanted to play the regular, working-class mom, and I’ve never really had the chance to do that.
On ‘True Blood,’ the character’s name is Sookie Stackhouse, and my name is Suki Waterhouse. So, I get people saying, ‘Oh, I thought we were meeting the girl from True Blood.’

When I’m training for ‘True Blood,’ I don’t eat any sugar except for some fruit here and there. So it’s no sugar, no bread, no real carbs all day.
I am going to be on ‘True Blood.’ It was really exciting. I had a great time shooting it. I spent the last nine months shooting this season and it was very secretive, very sexy, a lot of blood and fangs.
I think a lot of drama, nowadays, is character-based and development-based, but ‘True Blood’ is very plot-oriented.
And I guess I’m a kid at heart in that when I go for entertainment, I want to be totally transported. I want to go somewhere else; I want to encounter different things, different beings, different universes. And so I love that aspect of being able to play those things in both ‘True Blood’ and in ‘American Horror Story.’
‘Six Feet Under’ was about repressing our deepest, most primal impulses, and ‘True Blood’ is about giving full sway to them all the time. In a way they are like yin and yang.
I make about two movies a year outside the ‘True Blood’ schedule. I work on a great show six months a year, then outside that I get to satisfy whatever creative urges I have. It’s a great position, especially for a single guy like me.
Sometimes it’s fun to be the guy who doesn’t know that he’s bad, like the character I played in ‘True Blood’.
Everyone always wants to talk about ‘True Blood’ and ‘Battlestar Galactica’ – no one’s even interested in ‘Durham County.’ It blew my mind when I came to Canada and no one asked me about the show. So many people didn’t even know about it. They didn’t even know it was on the air! It’s very curious to me.
I would kill to be on ‘Dexter,’ and I would double kill to be on ‘True Blood.’ I would pay them to let me come be a vampire or a vampire victim. No joke!
Film and theater are about misdirection and making the audience see something. I find it interesting. One of the things we do in ‘True Blood’ is shoot all of our stunts in camera. Instead of doing some kind of visual effect, we try to make it happen.

I definitely love ‘Camelot.’ It’s my favorite show. I’m a big ‘True Blood’ fan. I love ‘American Idol,’ and I love my girl J-Lo. The rest are my homework shows: ‘Forensic Files,’ ‘Dr. G. Medical Examiner,’ ‘The First 48.’
With ‘True Blood,’ you don’t know what to expect. You don’t know how wild it’s gonna get.
In this age of vampires, what I love about ‘True Blood’ the most is that it’s a post-modern take on it. ‘Sookie Stackhouse’ series author Charlaine Harris and ‘True Blood’ creator Alan Ball turned that whole mythology upside-down… It’s not just about vampires. It’s about a lot of different things.
Sookie is always in distress, it wouldn’t be ‘True Blood’ if someone wasn’t trying to kill her.
I was such a fan of ‘True Blood;’ I knew the essence of it.
That’s the secret of ‘True Blood’ – all the creatures that roam Bon Temps become a metaphor for our insatiable lusts and inner desires. Humans craving what they can’t have and those secret appetites transforming them into beasts, or even killers.
I think it’s fun to play with worlds that you can add a lot of your own imagination to. With ‘True Blood,’ you’re not limited by anything, there are just leaps and bounds of the imagination you can take with these characters.
People ask me what the appeal of ‘True Blood’ is and I think there are so many answers to that question, but I think that when there is so much excitement for what you do there is no way that that doesn’t become palpable and comes shooting out like bullets.
At one point I had a stretch where it was working on ‘In Treatment,’ then ‘True Blood,’ then ‘Durham County,’ then ‘True Blood,’ then ‘In Treatment’ again. If I didn’t have that little dose of ‘True Blood’ in the middle, I might have lost my mind.
I was a fan of ‘Six Feet Under’ and was very sad when it ended, so I was not ready to switch my allegiance to another show. So I was like, ‘I’m not watching this ‘True Blood.’ Then a friend got a bootleg copy of the first four episodes, and by the third one, I was irrevocably hooked.
I love ‘True Blood!’
Most stories in ‘True Blood’ take place over a short amount of time. I think the entire three seasons of the show have only spanned a month and a half of those characters’ lives.
Every episode of ‘True Blood’ is like shooting a low budget feature.
I try to keep things as varied as possible in my career, and after playing something as fun and over the top as Maryann on ‘True Blood,’ I wanted to find something antithetical to that.

I’m a fan of James Frain’s work, especially in ‘True Blood.’ He was so awesome in that show.
Funnily enough, I was a big fan of the show and had been watching it – along with everybody else – and had never imagined that I would be on it. You kind of look at shows and think, ‘Oh, I wish I had done that one.’ But I didn’t really see myself on ‘True Blood.’
I’d watched every episode of ‘True Blood’ from the very beginning. The show’s characters were in my blood, so when I started, I was really prepared. I made sure I wasn’t the new guy asking stupid questions on his first day.
‘True Blood’ was the most amazing adventure of my life; I met some of my best friends.
With film, there’s a consistency to it, but what I like about the TV shows that I’ve been fortunate to do, like ‘Friday Night Lights’ and ‘True Blood,’ is that it feels like you’re doing a film.
