The second season of HBO’s “True Blood” is in full swing, and fans of the show have been anxiously awaiting the first sighting of Evan Rachel Wood as Sophie-Anne Leclerq, the Vampire Queen of Louisiana. No photos have shown up yet, but Wood herself did reveal a few choice tidbits about her character.
“Oh! I love being able to talk about that now. I’ve had to be so secretive about it. She’s 400 years old. Her name’s Sophie-Anne, and she’s the Vampire Queen of Louisiana. There’s a queen for every state, and that’s hers. And she’s kind of a cross between Patrick Bateman and Paris Hilton. She’s crazy. She’s just crazy. And she’s a lesbian.”
Wood confirmed that she’s only filmed two episodes thus far and the producers plan to make her a recurring character although viewers won’t see her appear until closer to the end of the season. At least three of her scenes will be filmed with fresh-faced, twenty-something “Hadley” (who has yet to be cast), Sookie (Anna Paquin)’s cousin, who has been seduced into a whole other world — but still feels the pull of her human roots.
Something to look forward to as “True Blood” Season 2 plays out.
