‘True Blood’ Stars Hint at Major Character Death This Season

While most True Blood fans are excited that the hit HBO series is back on their small screens, they might be saddened to find out that one of the vampire show's beloved characters will be getting axed this season. Though Carrie Preston - who plays Arlene Bellfleur - didn't divulge any names, she talks about how the tears were shed during a table reading for the script: "We had this one table read, the first time we were hearing the script out loud, and one of the actors started crying and then everybody joined in. It was a pretty beautiful moment."

Todd Lowe, who portrays Preston's husband Terry on the series, also confirmed the "major death" in an upcoming episode: "It was just a big surprise. I had gotten the script late and hadn't looked into it, so I was kind of like, 'Oh! Wow! That's different.' It saddened a lot of people."

Rumors are currently running amok that fan favorite Eric Northman - portrayed by Alexander Skarsgard - will be the one booted off the vampire drama, but I gather that if it happens, it would probably be due to Skarsgard's rising film career. Here's to hoping - for most fans' sakes - that he continues his portrayal as the tall, blonde, and handsome ancient vamper we've all come to fall head-over-heels for.

Perhaps it will be Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) who will meet the true death - after all, he was killed off early in the book series from which True Blood is based.

True Blood airs on HBO at 9pm.
