queen-sophie-anne-episode-11

This Sunday on “True Blood” viewers will be introduced to Evan Rachel Wood as Queen Sophie-Anne, a 1,100 year old vampire who heads the Louisiana monarchy, who  Bill (Stephen Moyer) approaches for help. And we’ll discover that the Queen is actually hooked up with Sookie’s cousin, Hadley Hale (Lindsey Haun).

Evan Rachel Wood is coquettishly hinting that viewers could see her in steamy scenes with either men or women “Her human partner is a girl,” Evan Rachel Wood says of her “True Blood” character, “but I’m pretty sure she goes both ways.”

evan rachel wood“She’s not necessarily a lesbian,” Wood told E!Online. “Her human partner is a girl, but I’m pretty sure she goes both ways [laughs]. I think vampires are like that in general.”

The 21-year-old former girlfriend of Marilyn Manson and star of “The Wrestler” was vague about what’s in store for her character, but suggested that nudity could certainly happen. “They are bringing me back next season, so it’s always a possibility. It’s kind of inevitable.”

thequeenMarc Malkin of E!Online interviewed Evan about the Queen, and while she couldn’t give up the goods in terms of what’s coming up next on the show, she did divulge that if she had to choose between vampires Bill and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) she would choose the deviously sexy Skarsgard. “I would say, Team AlexEric! Whoops.” When asked if she had seen the super sexy clip of Alexander’s shower scene in “Hundtricket” she replied: “I am not going to lie. Yes I have.” She then added, That’s another great thing about my job—all of my scenes are with Bill and Eric! I was surrounded by beautiful people constantly.”

TRUE BLOOD: Alexander Skarsgard (Eric Northman) Finally Gets Naked As Ratings Soar (PHOTOS)

true-blood-record-ratings-07“True Blood” drew record ratings on Sunday night, pulling in 4.5 million viewers (11.4 million if you include DVR and HBO On Demand). Maybe it was because of Sookie Stackhouse’s (Anna Paquin) dream sequence where she is naked in bed with the lusty-hot vampire sheriff Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard). Although I love Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), we’ve seen enough of him naked and frankly when it comes to hot vampires, Skarsgard takes that title.

alexander-skarsgard-summer-television-critics-04custom_14ktuh60irI’ve been a lover of the Swedish import Skarsgard since Day 1, but it had more to do with his devilish good looks than the character he plays (although, who doesn’t have a thing for the bad boys). I’ve been crushing on the hot & sexy Alexander Skarsgard since seeing him in last summer’s “Generation Kill” mini-series on HBO. While I do profess my undying love to the “Twilight” vampires (and wolves) and they so rule the big screen, the vampires on “True Blood” ooze sex appeal and can actually show it on TV. Plus, I can get my fix weekly as opposed to once a year. Call it vampires for the sexy set.

true-blood-record-ratings-03On Sunday night’s episode of “True Blood,” Eric finally established an emotional connection with Sookie and got into her head as she dreamt of the couple in bed together. IT-WAS-SO-HOT I’ve had to watch it over and over again to see if I can sneak a peek of the goods. Even hotter is the fact that Alexander prefers to be fully nude when filming love scenes: “For me, it is no big deal, I’ve been naked in other roles I have in the past both in the theater and in films. Here they wanted to test everything from a sock to body-colored mini underwear, but it just felt weird. I prefer to be naked instead.  So long as you and your co-star know how t works, it is okay and we are a tight bunch that makes this series.”

true-blood-record-ratings-12From his start as Brad Colbert on HBO’s Generation Kill to his gaining popularity on “True Blood,” Alexander’s star is definitely shining bright and people are taking notice.  Recently named a “Rising Star” by Access Hollywood the 32-year-old actor, and son of actor Stellan Skarsgard, said his newfound heartthrob status is amazing – and something he’s more than willing to share with co-star Stephen Moyer. “The attention is very flattering,” he told Access. “I heard that fans are divided between Eric and Bill. To be honest, I’m Stephen’s biggest fan.”  “I actually founded the fan club ‘Bill’s Babes,’” he joked.

true-blood-record-ratings-01In addition to remaining episodes of Season 2 of “True Blood,” Alexander will be seen in the upcoming movies “Straw Dogs,” “13” and “Metropia.” Lady Gaga fans will also recognize Alexander from the singer’s 9-minute mini-movie video for “Paparazzi,” which debuted earlier this summer.

MORNING COFFEE: True Blood’s ANNA PAQUIN & STEPHEN MOYER Engaged! Aerosmith Rocker STEVEN TYLER Falls From Stage, Airlifted to Hospital

AnnaPaquinStephenMoyer_09It’s true love for “True Blood” co-stars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer. The real-life couple, who play lovers in the hit HBO vampire series are engaged to be married, their reps confirmed.

293.paquin.moyer.lc.011209Paquin, who plays telepathic Sookie Stackhouse on True Blood, is originally from New Zealand and won a 1994 Supporting Actress Oscar for her role as the precocious child in The Piano. Moyer, from Essex, England, plays bloodsucking Bill Compton on the series. He also has two children from previous relationships: a son, Billy, born in 2000, and a daughter, Lilac, born in 2002.

Paquin, 27, will be playing stepmom to Moyer’s two children – 9-year-old Billy and 7-year-old Lilac – from a previous marriage. Now with marriage in their future, fans of the co-stars can expect the chemistry on-screen to continue in the show’s frequent nude scenes. “Obviously, if you’re already with that person then you’re not having to sort of get over the ‘Wow, I’m naked with someone that I don’t even know the middle name of!'” said the actress. As for Moyer, 39, his feelings are mutual: “My girl is hardcore.”

anna-paquin-stephen-moyer-2-jaimie-truebloodAlthough the couple claims they started dating this past February, it was reported that it was actually love at first, um, bite when the British hunk aced his Blood audition opposite the Oscar winner in early 2007. But the duo kept their instant attraction a secret from everyone, including his girlfriend of seven years, the mother of his young daughter, Lilac.

That September, Stephen told a British newspaper that his move from London to L.A. for the series had resulted in the end of his relationship with British journalist Lorien Haynes, saying: “Nobody has left anybody for anybody else.” But those words rang hollow when Stephen and Anna admitted that sparks flew the moment they first met! “We tried to stay professional for as long as we could,” Anna later admitted in an interview. “But it was unstoppable!”

No words on wedding plans yet, but you can be sure we’ll be watching this hot duo in the upcoming months as their star-power rises.

STEVEN TYLER FALLS FROM STAGE, AIRLIFTED TO A HOSPITAL

People Steven TylerTaking the #1 spot on the Fameball Top 10 is Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler, who was airlifted to a hospital after falling from stage.

Tyler, 61, whose performances often include swaying, dancing and grinding on microphone stands adorned with scarves, was airlifted to a hospital early Thursday after falling from the stage during a concert at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. The Aerosmith front-man fell while entertaining the crowd by dancing around after the sound system failed during the song “Love In an Elevator,” said Mike Sanborn, spokesman for the Buffalo Chip Campground, which hosted the outdoor concert. Ed Aurand, a security supervisor at the campground who saw the fall, said Tyler stepped backward off the stage’s catwalk. “He does a lot of dancing on the stage and he does a lot of stuff with his mike stand. He put his stand down and twirled around and stepped backwards off the stage,” Sanborn said.

APTOPIX Music AerosmithHalfway through the performance, Tyler fell onto a couple of fans in the middle of what was a record crowd, Sanborn said. Security rushed to help him and the crowd cheered when Tyler got back up. “He was good natured about it,” Sanborn said. “He was in good spirits when he got in the helicopter. He was talking and joking with the physician. It was an unfortunate end to an extraordinary evening,” he said.

Tyler suffered minor head and neck injuries and a shoulder injury, but it wasn’t immediately clear how serious that was, Sanborn said. After he fell, which was halfway through the performance, Tyler was eventually taken backstage, Sanborn said. Around 12:15 a.m., Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry came out to tell the audience Tyler was being taken to the hospital and that the show would not go on. A physician at the concert venue attended to Tyler and the front man was flown to Rapid City Regional Hospital, the only major hospital in the region, Sanborn said.

Jennifer Horton, the hospital’s vice president of public relations and marketing, said early Thursday that Tyler wasn’t in the hospital directory. Under the privacy laws, that means the person is either not there or chose not to be included in the directory, according to the hospital’s Web site. Fans were disappointed the concert was cut short but hoped Tyler wasn’t seriously hurt.

Aerosmith16Tyler’s publicist did not return several calls Thursday seeking comment. Tyler, known for heavy hits such as “Walk This Way” and “Dream On,” attended Sturgis last year to promote his Dirico Motorcycles line and was back this year to do that again and play at Buffalo Chip. He was known for heavy drug and alcohol abuse in the 1970s and early 1980s. Every member of the blues-rock five-piece went to rehab in the mid-1980s, and staged an improbable comeback with the MTV generation.
