True Blood Season 5 Filming New Fan Photos-Update

Lucky fans got to see some True Blood filming last night. Alexander Skarsgard and Stephen Moyer were filming their “vampire” scenes till the early hours of the morning. The lucky ladies were also able to get some photos and autographs from the cast. In the photo below Alex was signing a copy of “V-Man” magazine (yes with the crazy hair).

Season 5 sounds like it will be action packed. Waiting sucks but at least new photos help make the wait less painful! It seems that they were filming for 5.05. Alex and Stephen were in the back of an “Herveaux Construction” truck and Joe M. and Anna P were in the front of the truck (in the drivers section). Eric and Stephen kept hitting their marks and having fun between takes. Can’t wait to see the new season!


Huge thanks to C for tweeting! Sounds like they all had a blast. Here’s her twitter-link 

UPDATE: Another fan was able to get photos of filming as well. The location used for filming used to be a hospital: Linda Vista Hospital (this has been featured on tv for being a “haunted location” and is a super creepy looking place)

The former morgue: (was listed on the set )

Casting call for episode 5.05 did have a scene with a “padded cell” .

[box] [SCRAWNY MAN (JIMMY)] In his 30s, very skinny, babbling in terror, he’s found in a padded cell. RECURRING [KATE] Late 20s-early 30s. Skinny, unconscious, Kate is one of the prisoners with the Scrawny Man in the padded cell. No lines in this episode, RECURRING[/box]

She got some great inside photos. The links below are the ones she sent via twitter:

      These photos were from last night. The fans did not say exactly where it was but it kinda looks like a location previously used. If I find any more info out I’ll let you know! thanks for the comment!

    That looks similar to the jacket he wore last season! You know I pay attention to these kinds of things! 😀 He is the only reason I will tune in to True Blood due to his superb acting!

      Does look like that. I also thought it looked like the back of St. Luke’s. It is used for filming now and they did film at that location in season 3 (the post Sookie draining scenes in a hospital)

      That apartment had a gate on the exterior. It was a bit more elaborate than this one but it could be. I’ll go back and dig through photos. It looks a lot like the place I took photos (the former hospital) the back of it at least. waiting sucks!! I know they were also fiming other scenes the same day with Sam and possibly Luna..(That’s why I’m thinking hospital). If I find more out I’l let you know

        I also thought it looked like an apartment building. Look how happy they are to sign autographs. Looks like they screwed up Bill’s hair again though..he’s looking very drained and vampirish, lots of contrast in coloring. Do you think those jackets look like The Authority type? Hmmm. This will be fun.

    These are great photos! This place sure does look creepy. My hunch is , if they are in Alcide’s truck, they are on the run. They would wear their leather for that, IMO. Yes, they look a little tired, but, after all, it is in the “wee hours”, after many hours of shooting, most likely.

      The hospital they used for filming is super creepy and yes it’s been on a lot of shows. Lots of possibilities! Are they (Russell’s children) keeping Russell in the hospital? Sounds like some donors were also kept there. Could Sookie be a prisoner? (and Eric and Bill there to rescue perhaps?) Or she could get captured while they are there! Yes waiting sucks!! Thanks for the comment.

          One of the photos that a fan took had a blood “bag” that said Volunteer Donor. The casting call for an episode mentioned someone in a padded cell. So either they had some extra “donors” willing or unwilling. I just know there was a bag of blood (the ones that get filled up when doing donations) in one of the photos.

            Hmm, that’s very interesting. ‘With people in padded cells, Volunteer Donor’ sounds about as credible as Talbot’s ‘willingly donated’ ‘cruelty free’ dinner in season 3. Thanks!

    Whoa…I hadn’t seen the inside pics of the hospital until now. Extremely creepy! And rather disturbing. In one room it looks like a morgue. The first pic is quite scary…old and rusted and abandoned…looks like a scene from a serial killer movie. RE might be in a hospital? Maybe a vampire hospital? Interesting theory.

      Yes they really made the hospital really creepy. It could work as a place for KRE to recover.They mention a man in a padded cell..Plus one of the fan pix show a transfusion of blood from a “donor”. Way creepy!!

    I like the thought that the hospital bed is Sookie’s because it means we’ll see Eric in a lovers desperation trying to get her back from Russell, but do we know for sure that it is hers?
