Evan Rachel Wood Discusses Her True Blood Character

Evan Rachel WoodThe 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.

Movieline spoke with Wood during the recent Young Hollywood Awards (click the link to see the video), and AfterEllen.com provided some transcription of her comments as follows:

“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.
