True Blood fans got quite the shock during the season finale last Sunday when we watched the resident Viking vampire go up in flames. Questions and theories immediately began to fly--is he gone for good? Will Pam save him?
Michael Ausiello from TVLine.com interviewed True Blood producer, Brian Buckner and got some answers that will make fans relax a bit. When asked if that was the last we saw of Eric Northman, he said that Alexander Skarsgard is going to be a part of season seven and a series regular. Whew! He wouldn't elaborate how, of course, that would take away from the surprise!
When asked about the full-frontal nudity in the finale (thank you, Mr. Skarsgard...just thank you), Buckner replied:
Alex Skarsgard was the coolest camper in the world. There’s no conversation with him. He’s Swedish. They’re naked all the time. As a matter of fact, when I saw what we had on camera, I sent him an email that said, “We’re going to lock picture. Are you OK with this?” He said, “No problemo.” That was the conversation. It couldn’t have been easier.
Would it be hasty to ask for more next season?
He also spoke of the return of the Bill Compton we know and love, the relationship between Alcide and Sookie, and Tara feeding off of her mother. You can read the entire interview HERE.
