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.
Many True Blood fans are battling a bad ‘fangover’ today. The fan reactions run the full gambit from hating it to absolutely loving it. I will be always grateful to the show for the many adventures I’ve had and all the amazing friends I have made because of the show. It is over now but the friendships won’t go away.
Today is also Alexander Skarsgard’s birthday! Wishing him a fang-tastic and very happy birthday! Huge thanks to him for giving fans an amazing Eric Northman. He will be truly missed. Looking forward to his new roles!
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.
