Vampire fans in the UK are being asked to join in and give blood this Halloween by HBO.uk and the NHS.
HBO’s True Blood teams up with NHS Blood and Transplant to encourage fans and cast of the show to donate this Halloween
Fans and cast members of HBO’s hit TV show TRUE BLOOD are being encouraged by NHS Blood and Transplant to sign up to become blood donors this Halloween.
As the wildly successful show has come to an end, with the FINAL SEASON releasing on Blu-ray and DVD on 10th November, vampire-loving fans of the show are being asked to become donors to help save lives.
True Blood star Ryan Kwanten has been back home in Australia working as an ambassador for McDonald’s McHappy Day. He spent time serving behind the counter at a McDonalds in Sydney, and visited children living with serious illnesses at the Ronald McDonald House in Randwick.
He also did a couple of television interviews. Firstly he appeared on Studio 10, where he was re-united with an old co-star from his youth.
And secondly, he appeared along side his brother Mitchell on The Morning Show.
HBO posted the video below to Youtube. A wrap up showing some of the final scenes from the series finale. We hear from some of the cast and the directors. (sadly no Alex or Pam in the video speaking they are just shown in some of the scenes) Fans are still dealing with a huge “fangover” today.
HBO press release for the True Blood series finale:

True Blood season 7 is in full swing. The upcoming episode promo for “Fire in the Hole” aired after last night’s episode. A lot of changes ahead for the citizens of Bon Temps and also our favorite vampires. Continue reading →
HBO posted a new promo for the upcoming episode 7.02 titled. “I Found You”. Perhaps the “you” in the title is referring to Eric Northman. (Pam has been looking for him for months). I do believe also we will see the long awaited dream sequence featuring Eric Northman and Jason Stackhouse.
This screen cap looks a lot like Jason getting ready to jump on a certain Viking Vampire (Alex mentioned that the scene was way over the top and much like a Spanish tele-novela/soap opera) There are no embed options so here is the link to the promo:
Tonight was the True Blood season 7 premiere. No Eric Northman unfortunately but we did see Vampire Pam looking for her maker. After the episode aired they showed the “in the weeks ahead promo” video shown below: Continue reading →
True Blood is featured on the cover of the upcoming Entertainment Weekly magazine issue dated June 27,14. Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin are on the cover (no surprise they are featuring the married couple) The final season marketing and articles so far sure seem to be very Bill and Sookie centric. Hmm we can take the hint HBO!
Gallery below contains scans of the issue. There are some new images that were Stephen’s personal photos (including a GQ photoshoot with Alexander Skarsgard) shown below: Continue reading →
