A couple of months ago we posted an excerpt from an interview with “True Blood”‘s Evan Rachel Wood in which she mentioned that her character, Sophie-Anne, would be interacting with “Hadley”, Sookie (Anna Paquin)’s cousin who had yet to be cast. Today we found out who would be playing said Hadley.
Lindsey Haun, singer and the former lead vocalist of hard rock band 7th Fall (and also one of the leads of Paddy Breathnach’s Shrooms), landed the gig; and she wrote all about it in her MySpace blog:
First of all, “True Blood”! Sooooo… our guitar player, Sarah Carter, was on episode 2 of this season, season 2, with her other band Rocket!! The episode is called “Get This Party Started” and Rocket is the back up band for the Christian rock singer chick. it’s pretty funny… and kinda wrong actually… in a good way. But wait there’s more!!! I, Lindsey Haun, will be on the last 2 episodes of the season! well actually, technically, 3. We shot about 3 weeks ago and it was amazing! I LOVE Alan Ball and the directors i got to work with, Michael Cuesta and Daniel Minahan! The crew was so incredibly nice and professional and hard working. What a treat to be on that set! I can’t tell you much because i don’t want to give the story away but i can tell you that i play Hadley Hale, Sookie Stackhouse’s (Anna Paquin) cousin. I got to work with Stephan Moyer, Alexander Skarsgard, and drum roll please… Evan Rachel Wood. i can’t tell you who she plays but i can tell you that she’s awesome! They’re all awesome! Anyway, i really want to work with all of them again so please watch the show and tell them that you want me on it more! lol!
We already know, of course, whom Wood plays — in her own words, “She’s kind of a cross between Patrick Bateman and Paris Hilton. She’s crazy. She’s just crazy. And she’s a lesbian.” No wonder Haun had so much fun on the set!
