That Michael Ausiello! He’s been holding out on us! In this week’s Ask Ausiello, he had a tiny little spoilery crumb for season 6 that he held back before. He is an evil, EVIL man, but his wisdom in holding out gives us something to mull in this dry waiting season. Details below the Read More.
Question: I know it’s early, but any scoop on True Blood‘s Big Bad Bill in Season 6? —Tara Ausiello: Not so much scoop as an interesting quote from Stephen Moyer, leftover from my finale post mortem, about his investment in what viewers think of Bill. When I asked how he felt about Bill possibly inflicting physical harm on Sookie next season — perhaps even worse than the smackdown he gave Jessica in the penultimate S5 episode — Moyer said, “If that’s dramatically compelling and fun and great to watch, then so be it. That’s awesome.” He went on to say (and this is the part that got excised from the story), “One has to stop worrying about how one’s character is perceived. I think we all probably had a point in the series where you did worry about the public persona of our character. But I stopped worrying about that in Season 2. That’s not to say I don’t care. What I mean is you’re going to stop playing something authentically if you’re worried about how it’s going to be perceived.”
