While she may not be a regular on season three of True Blood, Evan Rachel Wood will appear often as Queen Sophie Anne.
We can already report that the character will share many scenes next year with the vampire King of Mississippi (Denis O’Hare), but for other tidbits, we needed to hear from Wood herself.
In a recent interview, she revealed as much as she could about the season ahead:
On Sophie Anne's upcoming role: I am waiting just like everyone else to find out. I have no idea what Alan Ball has up his sleeve for me, but he has assured me that it’s all going to make sense eventually, so I’m just waiting to see. But I have heard that she’s going to get a little more intense and a little scarier because she is pretty diva-ish and bratty right now; she’s definitely going to get more in-depth.
On more girl-on-girl action: Her partner is a woman — Sookie’s cousin (Hadley Hale), so I’m pretty sure there’s going to be more stuff going on there.
On the season two finale: I thought it was out of control. I remember reading the script and just thinking, “I don’t know how they’re going to do this or get away with it or make it work and they did. They always do; the most outrageous scenarios, they always make them work. I’m very curious to see what happens next.
