If you haven’t been watching True Blood this season, you should start. The show is gaining momentum quicker than ever and it just keeps getting better and better.

The last two episodes in particular have both ended with big multiple major cliffhangers that have left fans dying for more. If you’re a fan, we’ve got something for you today – the very first look at Queen Sophie-Anne, the vampire Queen of Louisiana who will soon be making her reigning debut.

This image comes from Michael Ausiello’s column at Entertainment Weekly and depicts Evan Rachel Wood (The Wrestler, Across the Universe) in character as Queen Sophie-Anne.

The vampire queen makes her debut in episode 11 of this season, titled “Frenzy,” which airs August 30, 2009.

In describing the character, series creator Alan Ball says,

“Nobody’s ever entirely happy to see her… She’s very powerful, capricious and most likely insane.”

As for her role in the show, we only know that she’s likely up to no good with her own ambitions in mind. Ball hints at her purpose by revealing only that she “has more than one secret agenda… which we will slowly become aware of over season 3.”

True Blood incredible cast of growing stars includes Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Michelle Forbes, Nelsan Ellis, Sam Trammell, Deborah Ann Woll and Alexander Skarsgård.

  1. CHRISJ: Check NetFlix if you need to rent the show. -Bruce

  2. @ BloodSucking Leech,

    HBO loves their short 12-episode seasons – It’s easy to film, they fit them in the summer (when all regular station TV programming is on hiatus) and they can quickly turnaround DVD sets which are huge for them in both sales and marketing.

  3. I am so disappointed that I don’t have HBO anymore. Having to wait to see this season is killing me!

  4. Well, overall I liked this season because of more Erik and the Godric story line was excellent. Wish it was more centered on that. But the whole bit with Maryann and the way the people were acting was really silly and pointless. It was a short season that could have been better.

  5. I would have to say the Sookie character on this show is much like the Kate character on Lost. They both create plot points by having emotional and overly erratic behavior coupled with a group of men following them around. We men are single minded and follow our second brain all too often but come on. I think the writers are using these characters as a cop out there are other reasons for guys to do stupid things. All women don’t have to be immature emotional wrecks or ball busters I am tired of the stereotypes.

  6. this show is full of twists if you dont like this show then wowwwwww who doesnt like free porn blood spilling and pretty good acting

  7. I was actually a reader of the series before I came to the tv show. I’ve enjoyed the creative liberties Ball has taken and really love how he expanded small plot lines in the book and made them into something more. I wasn’t crazy however to see the casting for the queen. I have nothing against Wood, she is just a far cry from the 1600? year old 15-year-old that is the Sophie-Anne in the books. I was kind of looking forward to the whole creepy ancient child, instead we get another glamorous 20 something with a campy if unhinged personality.

  8. Liz-glad to hear from a reader of the series. Too bad they didn’t stay true to the book regarding the Queen. I liked her character in the show, but it wasn’t necessary to change it up like that. Godric’s character was excellent, and I would have loved to see more of him. Someone wrote that Sookie and Bill’s relationship was only one of many she has, and I’m hoping they don’t change that part at all. Bill is okay in a nice quiet guy next door type of way, but Eric is far more fun and appealing.

  9. @ Rob Keyes
    I thought about gettin HBO so i can watch True Blood. Is possible to record episodes onto blank vhs tapes? And do they show reruns or be a season 3 later on? Id Appreciate if someone could help me.

  10. is the queen the strongest vampire of all or the magister can beat her??? plz replie

    • The queen is not the strongest. Neither is the magister. but the Magister is stronger than her.

      • how do you know this???? and is the queen stronger than eric

  11. Evan Rachel Woods is such a terrible actress! I flinch every time I see her on screen; her voice, gestures and mimic just seem so fake! However, it’s the only mis-casting on the show, the other actors are so good!
