Sam Trammell – 'Sam Merlotte' in True BloodI want to make you repeat everything you said all along the line, everything you said about True Blood coming up this season. You said there's something shocking in the first episode?
Sam Trammell: "There is. There is, yes."
And that's all you can say?
Sam Trammell: "That's all I can say because…"
Not who it involves or anything like that?
Sam Trammell: "Well, I'm involved. I'm involved, yeah."
Okay. Shocking as in relationships?
Sam Trammell: "I'm not going to say because now I'm feeling terrible. This is going to get out now."
It is going to get out and they're going to blame you, and you won't be in the rest of the season.
Sam Trammell: "I know. Exactly, exactly."
So we get to meet your parents this year?
Sam Trammell: "Yes, you get to meet them. And they're very country. They're very eccentric. They're very dysfunctional. They have some weird stuff going on that you find out as the season goes on. And they're awesome. J. Smith Cameron plays and Marshall [Allman], he was on Prison Break… Fantastic group of people."
Does this mean we're going to see you away from Merlotte's a lot more then?
Sam Trammell: "For a little while, yeah. Yeah, definitely for a little while."
Where do you stand on this whole vampire thing? Why are people so in love with vampires and not shapeshifters? Come on!
Sam Trammell: "People are in love with them. They're growing in love with shapeshifters, it's just taking a while. It's just taking a while. Vampires, they are independently wealthy. They have mansions. They have great window treatments. And need something from women – they need their blood. So all that, it just works."
So what about shapeshifters? What do you guys have to offer?
Sam Trammell: "We have a warm body to cuddle with. We're alive."
Will we see you naked a lot this next season?
Sam Trammell: "Of course."
You're ready for that?
Sam Trammell: "Yeah."
Have you done a lot of scenes already that are naked?
Sam Trammell: "I've done a couple."
So we are going to see you a lot more than usual?
Sam Trammell: "You are. You are going to see a lot more of me than usual."
