‘The Vampire Diaries’& ‘True Blood’ Stars Reveal Their Favourite Scary Flicks

The Hollywood Reporter wants to know what films frightened the stars from The Vampire Diaries, Paranormal Activity and True Blood.

For True Blood’Rutina Wesley, her fear of spiders is nothing compared to being on set this past season.

“It was scary being on set with some of the animals,” said Wesley, who noted that ArachnophobiaFriday the 13th and Psycho gave her the creeps. “They were gentle as can be but just the fact that you’re on with hybrid wolves is a little scary.”

But what gives Wesley’s co-star Sam Trammell nightmares?

“Something like Paranormal I haven’t even seen the end of,” Trammell said. “That kind of thing is really scary so I watch it in pieces. I love Dario Argento. The original Texas Chainsaw Massacre is still horrifying to me because it’s so faux-documentary, it’s so scrappy, it’s horrifying.”

True Blood actress Kristin Bauer’s fears are slightly more realistic.

“When I had the fight scene with Stephen Moyer [Bill] I really just had to go for it and snarl and make guttural sounds that felt so ridiculous,” she said. “Every time they said cut, I said, “Really? Do I look ridiculous?’ That was the scariest day. Stephen helped me through it.”

Nina Dobrev, who plays two characters on The Vampire Diaries, says that’s nothing compared to her fear of blood.

“Ironically enough, I’m very squeamish when it comes to blood,” said Dobrev, who noted that The Ring and the Saw movies “terrify” her. “Even on set, there was a scene I had to do where I cut my wrist on camera and it took every little bit of energy and strength that I had because your veins are so exposed. Every person is so fragile and it’s so easy to get hurt, it just freaks me out.”

Her Vampire Diaries co-star Ian Somerhalder agrees with Featherston on Candyman.

“I don’t watch that much scary stuff now, but when I was a kid the Freddy Krueger movies and Candyman used to scare the s*** out of me,” he said. “We’re adults now and it still holds up.”

Sam Trammell has claimed that the new season of True Blood is the best ever. Trammell, who plays Sam Merlotte in the show, explained that he was impressed when he watched the first episode. “It’s going to be the best season yet, and I’m not just saying that,” he told On The Red Carpet. “I just saw the first episode… I think we’re sort of hitting our strides. The writing is so good this year. There’s even more action. And I think the characters’ stories are even more rich. So, I mean, it’s really, really good this year.” Trammell also suggested that some fans might be surprised with the direction the show takes. He said: “There’s going to be some really, really interesting kind of supernatural, sci-fi element to it this year that’s going to be completely unexpected and it’s going to be really cool, really cool.”

Rutina Wesley has admitted that she is “excited” about the next season of True Blood. Speaking to On The Red Carpet, Wesley revealed that her character Tara will have a new love interest. “Crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy time,” she said. “You know, I have a new love interest supposedly, and some of it’s by choice and some of it’s not. It’s going to be a lot of fun. I’m having a great time working with James Frain [who plays Franklin]. He’s a wonderful, wonderful actor. And, you know, it’s going to be more ups and downs like last season. Very chaotic – now we’ve got wolves and other things coming into play and that’s been a lot of fun, so get ready.” Wesley added that she “can’t wait” for the show to air, saying: “I’m getting really excited. We’re almost done shooting but it’s, like, it’s so exciting. There’s so many new characters and it’s going to blow your socks off.”

True Blood showrunner Alan Ball has revealed details about the third season of the programme. In a video on the show’s official website, Ball explained that all of the characters will get in trouble in the new episodes. “There is so much going on in season three,” he said. “We are having a blast making the show. There’s werewolves, there’s vampire politics… everybody on our show is getting in a lot of trouble this year and it’s really fun.” He continued: “Bill has been kidnapped by… You’ll have to watch the show to find out who.” Ball also promised “unexpected romances” and revealed that Sam will meet his real family during the season. He concluded: “It’s everything you love about True Blood amped up to the next level.”
