So enchanting

2020.03.13 23:33 tbolinger76 So enchanting

You know what I think really made True Blood so enchanting? The actors who played Bill and Sookie, Stephen Moyer & Anna Paquin, absolutely glow together. The reason being, the two were, and very much still are, in love during the whole filming of the show. A large majority of the emotion between them wasn't acting.
I'm just rewatching the series and enjoying every moment of it.

《真爱如血》是一部描写吸血鬼与人类之间斗争的故事,日本人造出了《真爱之血》后,人类是否就能真正的与吸血鬼和平相处?在第一季和第二季获得好评之后,制作方HBO在上礼拜六下午(美国时间7月25日)举行了一个盛大的Party。导演Alan Ball和主角Sookie Stackhouse也参加了这个聚会。当然,参加这次聚会的也不会少了这部连续剧的其他演员,包括:Anna Paquin、Stephen Moyer、Rutina Wesley、Michelle Forbes、Nelsan Ellis、Sam Trammell、Deborah Ann Woll、Alexander Skarsgard也都悉数登场。 在这个聚会上宣布的第一件事,制作方HBO带来了一瓶真正的“真爱之血”(True Blood),并宣布这将成为第一瓶“真爱之血”饮料。所有支持者可以在不久都可以买到这种饮料。有意思的是,制作方还说明这瓶饮料中含有多种成分,包括:葡萄酒、伏特加、伟哥、兴奋剂、摇头丸和鲜血的欧洲专利产品。这当然是在开玩笑,他们也坦诚,最终版本的饮料将是一种橙色的汽水,并会在《真爱之血》的第三季登场,并且预计会在未来的几个星期与广大FANS见面。 在HBO方面,该小说的作者Charlaine Harris也同时宣布不,他与HBO已经签署了一项协议,内容是该小说的三部曲,并且协议的年限也将到2014年结束。 在轮到FANS提问环节的时候,他们都把苗头对准了自己喜欢的明星。但实际上大约75%的问题,都是在向导演Alan Ball和Alexander Skarsgard提问。其程度已经达到了白热化,主要问题有:为什么Eric靠近Sookie之后,说了一句:“相信我?”;为什么Eric被拴在一个教堂的白银链子上?等等,不过,导演在这里却卖了一个关子,他并没有对这些问题进行正面回答,只是说让大家期待第三季的表现,也许这一切都要等到第三季的开始才能得到完全的答复。

Questions Answers
What was your favorite scene to film on True Blood? I loved the frat massacre with Russell. I love that scene too. That was written by Alexander Woo, who has one of the sickest senses of humor on the show (he also wrote that neck-twisting scene between Bill and Lorena in Season 3). Denis and I had choreographers come in and help us with our twirl and dip, which we practiced over on the Merlotte's set. My only regret is that Steve and Russell never stopped by Merlotte's during their night out on the town.
Also, on a scale of 1 to Fabio, how dreamy is Alex Skarsgard in person? I also loved the scene in Season 2 where Jason comes over for dinner at the Newlin's house. It really establish's Steve's worldview and it was the moment he really bonded with Jason. Plus Ryan Kwanten is just hilarious. My other favorite scene was the one where I come out to Jason in Season 5, for obvious reasons. It was just so rich with humor and weirdness.
How many blood sacrifices will we have to make to get you on American Horror Story with Denis O'Hare so we can enjoy watching you two together again? I think Ryan Murphy requires at least 7 blood sacrifices for this? I'm not sure I don't know the guy. But man, that would be awesome! I'd work on anything with Denis O'Hare. Even cleaning bathrooms.
What's it like in Vampire-Heaven? Steve and Russell are very happy together. I imagine them canoodling on a cloud of blood and draining an endless supply of Abercrombie and Fitch models.
I've actually never seen True Blood, as a Straight male would you recommend that I give it a chance? Let me tell you straight male, there are lots of boobs on that show. It is an equal opportunity offender for all sexualities. Dive in and enjoy.
What's it like appearing in a movie directed by a redditor? Does the set constantly grind to a halt while he's off staring at memes and kitten photos? Yes our director, Blair Erickson, spent a lot of time directing us with commands like "Make it more like a gif!" or "You just aren't Grumpy enough."
Blair and I actually went to college together. He directed me in a short movie called Night Trip. My character liked to do acid (don't do drugs, kids) and the film was about a drug trip that goes horribly wrong. I shaved my head to look like Ewan McGregor in Trainspotting and we shot out on an old country road in the middle of Pennsylvania. So, working on Banshee Chapter was a fun revisit to those days. Blair still knows how to scare me.
Shocking reddit AMA twist: this is actually Blair Erickson posting. Directed by M. Night Shyamalan Blair Erickson You scary bastard.
What has being on True Blood done for your sex life? Whether its more women hitting on you or your gf/wife wanting you to bite her (or something). Well, I'll say this. Strangers have bitten me in public. So you could say my sex life has gotten a lot worse.
How is Anna Camp in real life? She's a South Carolina girl and I want to make sure she represents us well. The real question is if South Carolina is representing Anna Camp well? Because she is pretty great.
How many beards could you lick in a beard licking competition? Last time I hit 13 before they had to drag me off the floor.
Who is your favorite working actress today and why is it Aubrey Plaza. I do love Aubrey Plaza. Parks and Rec is one of my favorite shows and I loved her in Safety Not Guaranteed. My favorite actor list could go on and on, but it always comes down to Phillip Seymour Hoffman and John C Reilly. I've loved them ever since Boogie Nights. Two of our greatest character actors with awesome comedic chops. Everything I strive to be.
Also what's your favorite Christmas song? OH! Actress. Ha ha. Easy: Cate Blanchett and Jennifer Lawrence.
For True Blood, where there any memorable scenes you shot but were never aired? No. Most everything I shot made it to air. There was a scene in 510 that was fun where Bill, Salome and Russell were coaching Steve on how he should debate Senator Finch. It made that debate seem like a much bigger deal, but ultimately it just didn't move the story along. There was a really fun moment where Denis O'Hare and I made out in the frat house, but the kiss was sadly left on the cutting room floor. Steve needed to get more action!
He did indeed! Any chance that deleted scene might one day get released to the public? Or maybe just a few devoted fans? I don't know? I actually haven't seen the Season 5 DVD yet... did it make it on there? Not sure it was very exciting (cut scenes are usually cut for a reason) but that kiss was pretty hot. It would make a nice Blu-Ray easter egg. I always wanted to do an issue of the True Blood comic book that was essentially the extended date night Steve and Russell had the night they killed all those frat boys. Denis and I decided that they got Steve's black windbreaker outfit off some poor, unsuspecting dude who was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Russell takes Steve "shopping," where they just kill one guy after another until Russell has put a more stylish look together for Steve.
Heya there sir! Huge fan of the show here! So excited to see you on here doing this AMA! What was it like working/acting with the members of the cast? Was anyone a special favorite to you? Anyone whom you may have disliked? What was it like going from the Anti-Vamp team, then becoming one yourself on the show? Did it affect the fanbase you have? Please and thank you!! Thank you, NeuroMeltingPot. I'm a little scared of what exactly it is you do to brains... It sounds so lame when I say this, but the cast of True Blood is one of the finest, if not the best, that I've ever had a chance to work with. Everyone is on their game. Each actor wants the show to be the best it can and bring that passion to set with them every day. I worked mostly with Ryan Kwanten, Anna Camp and Denis O'Hare. All amazing. But also: Deborah Ann Wohl? Alex Skarsgard? Stephen Moyer? All wonderful. These people are like family to me. Everyone is great. Wish I had more stuff with Anna Paquin and Kristen Bauer Van Straten. They are such tough, hilarious women. Steve vs Pam would have been so wonderful.
Favourite comic book? I see on your wiki that you wrote one. Currently it's Saga by Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples. I also love Hawkeye by Matt Fraction and various over at Marvel. All time faves include: Planetary ( a HUGE influence on my comic book, LUCID), The Invisibles, Preacher, Promethea, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and more recently Scalped by fellow Kansas City native, Jason Aaron. That book is amazing! If you liked Breaking Bad you should check out Scalped. It's a comic book masterpiece of crime fiction and human drama.
Tell us about Banshee Chapter. What attracted you to the project? Is it horrocomedy like True Blood, or is it straight up horror? What was the most uncomfortable scene to film? (I know, I know, softballs, but I'm genuinely curious. I've heard the name of the movie but nothing else about it.) Well, first and foremost I was excited to work on a project with friends. I've known Blair, the director since college, as well as producers Zachary Quinto, Corey Moosa and Neal Dodson. So there was that. But also, it was a great script. It's a genuinely scary, eery, WTF is happening type of horror movie that harkens back to films like Jacob's Ladder or The Shining. It's scary in it's essence, not just it's big horror moments. The subject material - experimental drugs, MK-Ultra, government conspiracies are also fond late-night conversational topics of mine. So doing it was a no brainer.
If you could have written season 6 of True Blood, what would have happened to Steve? Well, it's hard to argue with what happened. I really like the irony that SPOILERS Steve perishes in a prison of his own design (of sorts). He was asking for it. I'm surprised he stuck around as long as he did. That being said, I think Steve is actually a very cunning and resourceful guy. It would have been interesting to see if he could have talked Jason into saving him, or striking some kind of deal with Sarah that would force them to work together and send them off on the run having to deal with one another. But really, once Steve was in that room there was no way he was going to get out of there alive.
What would Vampire Steve Newlin have been like if he'd survived to 100? 1000? Way too powerful for his own good. In his mind, he imagined he'd be like Russell Edgington. Sad he never made it that far.
Any plans for a "Steve Newlin's Field Guide to Vampires (And Other Creatures of Satan)" audio book? Or, if not, any audio books in general? Oh man, that would be so much fun. It's such a visual book I'm not sure exactly how they would do it without losing all the wonderful found objects in the book. But it would be great to get into a studio with Kristen and Alex and record all of that dialogue. I guess anything's possible, but that's a decision for HBO and Chronicle Books.
Banshee Chapter question: Are there many scenes of you that we can look forward to? Oh yeah. A ton. That movie is freaking scary. I can't give too much away but there's a scene fairly early on that scared me just shooting it. I have some of my most weirdecreepier stuff in this movie than others. It's a very real scary, still supernatural in ways, but not at all like True Blood. And pretty much any scene with Katia Winter is one to look forward to because she is very easy on the eyes.
Hello, who was the best boyfriend character on What I Like About You, and why was it Henry Gibson? This question seems to answer itself.
Of the movies that you have appeared in, which one was your favorite & why? I will always hold a soft spot for Dorian Blues. It was my first movie and the script, written by Tennyson Bardwell (he also directed), is still one of the best scripts I've ever read. I think it's on Netflix streaming. If you haven't seen it I highly recommend it. Sweet and funny indy film.
Any new comics in the works, Lucid? I'm not sure what the immediate future holds for LUCID, but I'm confident it will return some day. If people haven't already checked it out, it's published by Archaia Entertainment and is available on comixology as well as Amazon and B& It's an indy book, so getting new readers will really go along way to green lighting a Vol. 2. I have a few things in the works, including a new series that I can't talk about yet. But yes, I will be doing more comics in the near future!
You scary bastard. Got me again.
It's okay sometimes I think girls are boys too it's an easy mistake to make. It is a confusing world we live in.
I bet it's Beauty and the Briefcase. Which I found so corny and yet have seen two or three times. Not my favorite, but it is good! The best part of about making that movie was that we shot it in New Orleans. I made great friends with the cast and all we did was go out and eat food. I probably gained 30 lbs shooting that movie. My suits got a little light towards the end there.
Shouldn't the title read "I played." So which do you prefer. Working on a long running series or doing movies? Both have their benefits. the nice thing about working in TV, if it is a series regular role that has some longevity, you really get to live with a character for a long time and make him your own, develop them. With true blood I got to play a crazy cult leader AND a gay vampire media figure. That would be hard to squeeze into a 2 hour movie.

2012.11.13 20:44 SeoirseN Why do so many american television shows sport non-american actors? And on the same note why don't foreign shows have american actors?

I don't have a quarrel with it, for the most part they are very good, but it is something that is becoming quite prevalent. To name a few:
Damien Lewis (England) - Homeland, Band of Brothers
Anna Paquin (New Zealand) - True Blood
Stephen Moyer (England) - True Blood
Ryan Kwanten (Australia) - True Blood
Idris Elba (England) - The Wire, The Office
Dominic West (England) - The Wire
Aiden Gillen (Ireland) - The Wire
Alan Cumming (Scotland) - The Good Wife
Honestly curious here
Of course these are only a few, and these are not movies. In those there are many, many more.
Edit: I mean Americans playing Foreigners in Foreign shows, not playing Americans playing Americans in Foreign shows.

2012.08.17 01:57 nedyken Who are some actors/actresses that shocked you with their real accents?

I posted something similar months ago as a comment to a thread, but I'm continually amazed how often I'm fooled by "fake accents"...
For example, here is a growing list of actors/actresses who OVER THE YEARS have fooled me with fake American accents... and later blew my mind when I realized they were foreigners:
left to right, top to bottom
Idris Elba (England):
Dominic West (England):
Aaron Johnson (England):
Hugh Laurie (England):
Marianne Jean-Baptiste (England):
Toni Collette (Australia):
Anna Torv (Australia):
John Noble (Australia):
Stephen Moyer (England):
Kate Winslet (England):
Jamie Bamber (England):
Christian Bale (Wales):
Andrew Garfield (England):
Gary Oldman (England):
Simon Baker (Australia):
Daniel Day-Lewis (England):
Joely Richardson (England):
I should add that I had no idea Natascha McElhone (who I know from "Truman Show" and "Californication") was English until I saw her with (what I presumed was a very fake) Irish accent in "Ronin":
And I had no idea Jason O'Mara from "Life on Mars", "In Justice" and "Terra Nova" was Irish until my girlfriend told me:
She also mentioned Anna Paquin ("True Blood" - from New Zealand) and Portia de Rossi ("Arrested Development" - from Australia), but they both seem to have lost their accents.
Recently I discovered that "Doctor Who"/"Torchwood" star John Barrowman (Captain Jack Harkness) alternates between his natural Scottish accent and American accent.
Lastly... I should mention that I was very surprised the first time I heard the real (non character) voices for Gilbert Gottfried, Bobcat Goldthwaite and Larry the Cable Guy ...
Who managed to shock you?
