True Blood On Location First Look at The Governor


True Blood filmed for season six on location at the home shown above. Our speculations were correct that yes this is the home being used for “The Governor” of Louisiana. Here is Arliss Howard rehearsing the scene (I can almost quote the speech he gives word for word! Heard him repeat it many times for each practice and quite a few takes for the filming). His character is not a big fan of vampires. It will be interesting to see just what his role will be next season.



Photos are not allowed during filming but I was able to get photos during the rehearsal for the scene.


I spotted Audrey Fisher (wearing the red hoodie). She did a great job with the wardrobe for all the extras on set for this scene. Lots of extras were used for this scene (approximately 50 extras were there)

Stephen Moyer was also on set directing. He is directing the season 6 premiere. The scene I watched must be for the end of episode 6.01.


Arliss Howard is to the left in the image above. Stephen was checking the scene.DSC_0086
Have a lot more images to upload to site. Just wanted to put out a few before the night was done. Waiting sucks (and waiting for filming today sure did but it was worth the wait).
UPDATE: Here are a few more photos from the rehearsals and more of Stephen Moyer directing the scene. He would give the crowd the direction of how to react to the action in the scene.


Arliss Howard can be seen rehearsing here as well (with Stephen over to the side)


The cameras shown in the images above were for the scene and were not actually filming. The filming was taking place from one above in the balcony (and I believe another one was also getting film from the rear. They were still setting up the camera below:DSC_0094

The casting call for episode 6.02 called for a few characters of the “occupy Wall Street” look and it seemed that a few were present as extras last night.


Don’t want to give away spoilers but it seems that the season starts off with a lot of action again. Waiting sucks but at least the filming is ongoing and the new season will be here before we know it.

The gallery below contains images from the rehearsals on 1/3/1/13: I’m still working on captions for the photos. Enjoy! Please feel free to comment. A huge thanks to all that worked so hard to make the “magic” for fans on the show. There are so many that work behind the scenes that don’t ever really get all the recognition but I tried to say thank you to as many as I could see.

True Blood Cast Makes TV Guide Highest Paid Stars List

TV Guide posted a listing of “TV’s Highest Paid Stars” in their August 13, 2012 issue. The True Blood starts Alexander Skarsgard, Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer made this list. For all the naysayers who still think Alex is not a lead actor (I know not any that visit this site regularly feel that way) take note that he is paid the same as Anna and Stephen. Congratulations to all the actors who made the list! ( I remember after season 1 Anna was the only one who made their list and it is great to see that her pay has doubled since then)

True Blood Episode 56 “Somebody That I Used To Know” Title Song

True Blood’s fifth season is in full swing and the eight episode will air on Sunday. The episode is titled “Somebody That I Used to Know”. There is a song by Goyte and the second I heard that song on the radio I thought of True Blood. The lyrics reminded me of the characters on the show. Here are the lyrics: UPDATE: they did not use this version for the song. I’ll update the video soon!!

Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
I told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it’s an ache I still remember

You can get addicted to a certain kinda sadness
Like resignation to the end, always the end
So when we found that we could not make sense
Well you said that we would still be friends
But I’ll admit that I was glad that it was over

But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make it like it never happened and that we were nothing
I don’t even need your love, but you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough

No, you didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records
And then change your number
Guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

Now you’re just somebody that I used to know
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
But had me believin it was always something that I’d done

But I don’t wanna live that way
Reading into every word you say
You said that you could let it go
And I wouldn’t catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know-oh-oh

But you didn’t have cut me off
Make it like it never happened and that we were nothing (oh)
I don’t even need your love, but you treat me like a stranger
and that feels so rough


No, you didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect you records
And then change your number (oh)
Guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

Somebody that I used to know
Somebody (now your just somebody that I used to know)
That I used to know
Somebody that I used to know
Somebody (somebody) (now your just somebody that I used to know)
That I used to know

I used to know
That I used to know
I used to know

Here is the music video for the version they did use:


The music video is below. So does this song give us a hint as to what we might see on Sunday? Bill will be shown in a flashback and will make a visit to a family member (is this the reference?) (Note they did not use this version)

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:

True Blood Fang Friday Episode Speculations

Hopefully fans have recovered from their True Blood fangover to enjoy the new episode “Cold Grey Light of Dawn”. The new episode trailers are teasing fans as to what they might see including a new initiation for Alcide and Debbie and Jason offering Hoyt advice. (poor Hoyt). UPDATE: Boston Herald gave fans new SPOILERS LINK HERE:

In the last episode we saw the powerful witch Antonia being burned at the stake. We also learned why she hates the vampires so much. It was at their fangs she was tortured, raped and sentenced to die. (the vampire priests were probably protected by the church). As she was burning, we could hear her cast out a chant in Latin.

Her fellow “witches” held prisoner in the church dungeon could also be heard joining in on the chant. The chant was a spell that cast out the sleeping vampires to walk into the daylight..

This is what I believe is being said in the chant:

E veru ex pere en cris tuus  ex pere mori.

 flama vere  pere escapa  pere tuus spiri tuus , mori,  flama vere pere escapa,  pere  tuus mori spiri tuus ca pere


Behold, I am gone to die from the stake of thy Christ.

Truly I am gone your spirit,  your flame  I am gone, to die escape. (this is repeated)  A huge thanks to Mj from FB who found the translation (the closed captioning on her tv translated the chant):
“Hellspawn demon, creature of death. Fire shall take your very breath.”  this was repeated over and over.

As much sense as it can make but it sounds like her chant called out the vampire’s “magic/spirit” what makes them sleep during the day to leave (to escape) and to die. The vampires are seen waking into the daylight and burning up:


The priest in the front is Luis’ maker and the others are fellow vampire priests and nuns. They burn up in the daylight:

From the episode summary and also from the trailer for episode 4.07 “Cold Grey Light of Dawn” we know this

With Marnie empowered by spirits of the dead, Bill issues an unpopular order to save vampires from the light.

Since MarniA now knows the “spell” and is also a necromancer it makes sense that she will peform the incantation in another prayer circle. The preview trailer showed a vampire walking in the sun and yes burning up. Link here:  King Bill will have to issue an edict that the vampires will need to be chained in silver to keep them from walking into the daylight. This post showed various screencaps from the preview trailer showing Bill, Eric and Nan chained up.


Jessica is also at risk of walking into the sun and was shown in the trailer opening the door during daylight.


Either King Bill has her at his home to protect her or she is having issues with Hoyt.  It does seems that she will be cast out of Hoyt’s home perhaps (due to jealousy over Jason) and may not have had time to be “chained up”. Never fear it looks like Jason might try to save her since he is shown tackling one of King Bill’s guards. Waiting for the new episode still really sucks!
