Chris Bauer Reveals More About Andy, Addiction and Ancestry

By  |  0 Comments

Chris Bauer spoke with New York Magazine recently about Andy’s history and connection with Bill on True Blood. He also goes into his ideas about the addiction and his thoughts about the Emmy snub for the show.

Were you disappointed when you heard that True Blood didn’t get any Emmy nominations?
The Emmys seem like an entity unto themselves that have an agenda that sometimes corresponds to quality, sometimes doesn’t. There are certainly lots of people on True Blood who deserve that kind of attention and don’t get it, and that’s always frustrating. But you gotta pick your battles, and that’s one that’s just not very winnable. And this is just my two cents, but I don’t think True Blood is primarily a performance-oriented show; it’s more of an event-type show. I really feel like True Blood is a big, giant slice of cake for the audience every week; it’s offering people 60 minutes of sometimes thought-provoking entertainment. If you’re gonna give an Emmy out, you should probably give it to the audience of True Blood.
