And the “True Blood” cast interviews/news tidbits continue! Today’s “installment” features the lovely Rutina Wesley, who when we caught up with her at the Entertainment Weekly/SyFy Comic-Con party last week, gave us a lighthearted perspective on her character’s many trials and tribulations this season, and her thoughts on talented (although super creepy in the show) actor James Frain.
“He’s one of the most amazing actors I’ve worked with – ever. We had a lot of fun together,” Rutina revealed. “We have a lot of hard times sometimes keeping a straight face in those scenes, but it’s been lovely. It’s funny me being tied up most of the season but I enjoy doing challenging things so it’s really great.”
And how did Alan Ball and Co. break the news to her that she’d be tied up for half the season?
“They actually came to me and they were like, ‘We love you, just don’t think we don’t but you’re going to be tied up… you’re going to be tied to a bed… you’re going to be duct taped to a toilet,’” she explained. “I was like, ‘OK fine! As long as you love me, everything’s all good.’ ”
Regarding her character’s seemingly constant tortured state, Rutina said she’s hopeful Tara will exercise some of those demons (for good) in the future.
“I hope she can find some power and some stability somewhere along the way,” she said. “I think we might see that. I don’t know if it will be this season though.”
What do you think of Rutina’s portrayal of Tara this season? Will Tara find her own happiness someday in the show?
