Sam’s Photoshoot with Giuliano Bekor…

True Blood’s Favorite Men

Recently Sam Trammell and Ryan Kwanten met with Giuliano Bekor for this fabulous photo shoot…
The photographer had this posted on his blog…

– June 3rd, 2011

HBO landed a total hit back in 2008 with the appearance of True Blood. This hot, sexy, riveting and entertaining tale of a small sleepy town in in the state of Louisiana in present altered time where vampires are no longer legend but alive and public.

Two of our favorite actors gracing that show every week is Ryan Kwanten and Sam Trammell.

What can I say we love working with them and I am sure they don’t mind their time here at lightbox (or working with Giuliano for reasons you probably already know why).

I can imagine working with two extremely handsome subjects can make your job a little more enjoyable…

Sam’s Public Service Announcement…

It has come to the attention of the True Blood cast that the fans were in need of dire help. Help to pacify our withdrawals as we wait patiently for the newest season of the show to hit the airwaves!
Well in response to this worldwide ailment…MOST of the regulars on the show decided to band together and make a few videos to soothe the burn till the show’s premiere on June 26th.
Two shown here…the first is the majority of the cast…the second is Sam Trammell…yeah that guy…

BTW…thanks for the intervention Sam… : )


Sam Trammell & True Blood Fans Help Japan

It seems like everyday we hear more scary news coming out of Japan. More than 27,000 people have been killed or gone missing after a 9.0-magnitude earthquake and subsequent tsunami hit the region on March 11, 2011. The death toll is expected to rise as the search and recovery operations for the bodies continue. Some 15,000 survivors are still living in the evacuation centers as a series of aftershocks keep rocking the country. And today, Japan raised the severity level of its nuclear crisis to the maximum level 7.

Guess who cares… Sam Trammell does! We asked Sam if he would help support our drive to sell as many Blood Donor t-shirts as we can with all proceeds benefiting the Red Cross’s efforts in Japan. This adorable picture is what Sam sent back.

True Blood News,,, Skarsgå & have banded together to design a special “Blood Donor” t-shirt to help in what ways we can. 100% of the proceeds from these t-shirt sales will be sent to the Red Cross for their Japanese disaster relief efforts.

You can find the shirts in the True Blood News store.

Thank you and special thanks to Sam that dashing dude! MUCH LOVE FROM ALL OF US!

Sam Trammell at Chicago Comic Con

Lucky me!! I was fortunate enough to get to see Sam and spend some quality time with him, air travel finally NOT necessary, at the Chicago Comic Con this Saturday.
After a two hour trip and an extensive search through the very crowded display area, I found him at the autograph booths with Kristin Bauer and Brit Morgan.
I immediately starting taking pix…got scolded by security till I flashed my Press Badge and Sam came to my rescue…my hero!
We chatted for about an hour…mainly about the new site we’re creating and basically everything but the show…sorry…no secrets to share! : (

Sam did say he loved getting up close and personal with the fans at these events! No complaints from the poor guy who valiantly signed autographs from 10AM to 7PM for three days straight!

NOTE TO SAM: Thank you…from all of us! You rocked the panel…as usual!!

I was able to get some very wonderful shots of both the signing booth and the True Blood Panel!

Japanese Earthquake & Tsunami Relief TB T-Shirts

Japan - True Blood Fans UniteRight now the people of Japan are in crisis, their resources are stretched thin, and they need our help. The death toll keeps rising, thousands remain missing and now they have to deal with the nuclear reactor situation. In addition, millions lack access to food, water, electricity, and medicine.

True Blood Paleyfest 2011

True Blood News and AlexSkarsgard.Net/Sam-Trammell.Com were lucky enough to travel together to Los Angeles, CA this week to attend the 28th annual PaleyFest which took place on Saturday, March 6th. It was an unforgettable weekend where not only did we get to spend some quality time together… FINALLY… we were able to take part in an adventure into the unknown (along with many other ¨True Blood Junkies¨).

We were able to obtain a little bit of info on season 4, along with a heap (over 1600) photos and video!

Lucky for you, we’re the sharing type…

Anna Paquin says that she will return from Fairyland but that “there’s stuff that’s different.¨ Alan confirmed that Sookie’s grandfather Niall (from the books) will not appear this season but will definitely show up some time in a future seasons.

Alan Ball said that “Eric doesn’t know who he is anymore” and that the Viking is desperately lost in season 4. The amnesia storyline is confirmed and although Eric does know he’s a vampire, he doesn’t know much more. He might receive some assistance from a blond fairy to help him remember his life. Alan Ball mentioned that vampires do dream and that there might be some flashbacks from the dearly departed. Alex Skarsgard added that there is an amazing flashback with Eric and Bill. Alexander also mentioned to Alan that he would really like to see some flashback scenes with Eric and Pam. Alan took note!

Sam did confirm that he will find love again this season, he will be bartending again and hopefully he´ll putting aside his bad ways!

Bill and Sookie’s breakup is serious and it will be a very difficult road to bring those two back together. The question was asked if Alan Ball still believed that Bill and Sookie were soul mates. Alan responded that it was very difficult not to see them that way as they are soul mates in real life.

Queen Sophie Anne and Bill Compton’s fight will include one other “person.”

There will be a bunch of new characters, including one played by Gary Cole.

Tara Thornton will be a much stronger person this year and will be more stable.

Bellefleurs: Andy Bellefleur will be experimenting with some of the V at the police station and Terry B and Arlene´s trouble will ¨grow exponentially¨ thanks to Arlene´s evil baby.

Hoyt and Jessica are still together but will face some challenges, ¨all good things eventually come to an end¨ said Deborah Ann Woll.

Tommy just wants to be loved…

That pretty much concluded our sneak peek into season 4. We may think of more tomorrow as at the moment we’re falling asleep as we type!

Thank you to Alan Ball and the cast for giving us the opportunity to spend time with our favorite supernaturals and humans!

Special thanks to Christy & Crystal who made our Paleyfest experience a little easier.

Videos coming soon…

TO SEE THE PHOTOS…GO HERE FOR NOW (I, Jenna am NOT a laptop lover and will load gallery here when I get home)!

A special thank you from me to Sam and Alex for such a wonderful time!!!

Sam and the girls out in LA…
