Well the headline pretty much sums it up, but I guess I could expand a touch. Last night there was a True Blood writers panel and the writers talked about the show to an in person audience and people online. You can read all the questions if you click here, but here is one that is interesting. It was addressed to the creator of the show Alan Ball. (above)
7:43 PM - Time for online questions. Alynda asks about whether we've seen the last of the Queen, played by Evan Rachel Wood. Groans from the audience prompt Alan to shout out "Why do you hate her so much?" A few replies are that Wood is miscast and she is nothing like the Queen is in the books. Alan finally points to himself and says "Sorry! I cast her! Point it all towards me!" The fans reassure him that they'll still watch the show.
Hey at least Alan Ball didn't try and defend her performance or say that she was great. He just told it like it is and took the fall. I'm guessing Evan won't be back.
As for things that will be back, lots of Alexander Skarsgard being naked. I don't think you will want to miss the first episode.
"Brian says, "I love me some Alex Skarsgard," which gets a collective cheer from the crowd. Asked if we'll see more of Skarsgard's Eric - and Alynda makes it clear she means naked - Alan says "I think he appears without most of his clothes in the very first episode." The temperature in the room rises at least 10 degrees."
