Carrie Preston Teases “Thrilling” True Blood Season 7
Carrie Preston hit the red carpet for the premiere of HBO’s new series Looking earlier this week, and spoke to a couple of outlets about returning to The Good Wife, guest starring on The Following, and what’s coming on the final season of True Blood.
One of the few actors who has been on the show since its premiere, Preston already knows pretty well how she’ll be saying goodbye to Arlene Bellefleur.
“I have a real good idea of it,” she tells Zap2it at the premiere of HBO’s “Looking.” “They’ve shown us a handful of the scripts already, and we’re shooting the first two. We’re on the train and it’s going to be a thrilling ride. … In true ‘True Blood’ fashion, we pick up right where we left off and we keep going at a million miles an hour.”
Just because Preston has been playing Arlene since “True Blood” premiered in 2008 doesn’t mean that she’s going to try to give her say in how the waitress-turned-restaurant owner’s story comes to an end.
“I always trust the writers,” Preston tells us. “Obviously the show has done really well because they’ve created this universe and these characters and they’ve married them with the actors, and so it’s been such a great experience and I would never second guess them at this point. I’m like, ‘Alright, bring us on home.'”
From Hollywood Take:
“We have the first couple of scripts, and it’s going to be an exciting ride. My character pretty much lives in the human world and is less inclined to be hanging out with the vampires.”
