True Blood Stars On Parade At Comic-con Panel
Stars of the Hbo vampire drama TRUE BLOOD, which was recently renewed for a sixth season, where out in force as they participated in a Q&A with the eager crowd and talked about life in Bon Temps.
Executive producer Alan Ball promised fans that he's looking to up the temperature for viewers of the already sultry show when it arrives back on our screens later this year. Ball, who was part responsible for bringing the show onto screens, received a standing ovation from the crew and crowd as he is due to step down from his post on the show after this season, making yesterday his last Comic-Con appearance with the show.
Aside from the more sombre note of Ball's leaving, the panel largely discussed romance, nudity, sex and stripping with the crowd, the latter courtesy of Joe Manganiello's recent role as a male stripper in Steven Soderbergh's new film Magic Mike. Ball himself even showed off a few of his own moves, standing on his chair at rolling his belly in a supposed Magic Mike style. Personally, I think he should stick to producing.
The show had a massive panel on offer, with the show's stars Ryan Kwanten, Deborah Ann Woll, Sam Trammell, Rutina Wesley, Christopher Meloni, Alexander Skarsgard, KRISTIN BAUER VAN STRATEN, Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin all present alongside Ball and Manganiello.
