Blastr interview with “Lilith” *spoilers*

Blastr did an interview with Jessica Clark about her role as Lilith on True Blood.  Spoilery!

Eric may be certain that there is no Lilith — but she’s coming back!  As vision? As something else? And even if she is real…does that mean you do what she says even if it is against your conscience?

Excerpt:

True Blood‘s got a new Big Bad these days, and she’s not like anything you’ve seen before. The show’s newest cast member, a stunning beauty named Jessica Clark, made quite an entrance a couple weeks ago as Lilith, the mother of all the vampires, who came out of a pool of blood naked and inspired several of the show’s popular vamps to chow down bigtime on the patrons of a karaoke bar.

Well, Lilith’s coming back this Sunday in “Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” and you’re going to see more of Clark and her mysterious character.

“Lilith … in the world of True Blood, God is a vampire and he created Lilith in his own image,” said Clark in an exclusive interview with Blastr. “So she is the very first earthbound vampire and is worshipped. She is the original vampire goddess. … Lilith is present in a lot of different mythologies and cultures throughout history, so I definitely did a lot of research about different interpretations of her and what she meant and what she did. But what I took away from all of them is just her power, the presence, the refusal to bend to any external expectations. She absolutely is a complete entity and a completely self-structured creature. And so that was just so fascinating, because she really is her own definition of womanhood and goddess. It’s not very often that you get to play a part like that.”
