There’s a sexy new werewolf coming to HBO’s hit show True Blood this summer, a totally hot wolf named Rikki who is sure to have all the werewolf fans drooling. The actress playing this new werewolf is the stunning Kelly Overton, and Kelly recently dished on the new season of True Blood. Check it out.
Of course Kelly’s interview started off with discussing sexy times with Alcide, which she smoothly replied, “All I can say is that everybody knows Alcide (Joe Manganello) is holding a candle for Sookie (Anna Paquin).”
“And who is to say that he is even (Rikki’s) type? She definitely lives life a little more on the edge than he does. It is definitely going to take a unique sort of person/being to catch Rikki’s eye and actually keep her interest.” she added.
“Rikki is pretty much the polar opposite of a damsel in distress,” said Kelly when discussing Rikki’s personality. “You don’t want to be on her bad side, that is for sure!”
“When we meet Rikki, she is not in the best of moods. Her pack master has gone missing,” Kelly shared. “That is a pretty big deal in her world. She is pretty determined. She won’t let anyone or anything get in the way of finding out what happened to him.”
Overton also revealed that in the upcoming season, viewers will finally meet the Authority, the vampire council that rules over all of the vampire beneath them.
“We really kind of see the politics and the power struggle between the Authority’s agenda – which is to drink Tru Blood and mainstream this society with humans. You know, coexist. We see that and the fundamentalist vampires, who are subscribing to beliefs that they are superior to humans. Humans are merely a food source,” she added.
“So this season is really different in that there is a lot of politically charged drama, which is something that always existed within the show, but until now they never really fully explored it and all the impact it will have on the characters…There is a lot of characters asking what side are they on.”
So, according to Kelly, while we will have plenty of vampire drama this season, there will also be some werewolf action as well. Hopefully this season the werewolves are a little more badass.
Anyone here looking forward to Season 5 of True Blood? Or did the werewolves in the past disappoint you so much you don’t want anything to do with them?
The 12-episode fifth season of True Blood will kick off Sunday, June 10th, at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT). For more goodies to tide you over until then visit True Blood on HBO.com and “like” True Blood on Facebook.
