    Thanks, SVB! That video and audio quality is so much better!!! I actually think that AB answered that question in the best possible way…I mean, what was he going to say?

    Exactly. He cannot give away the store. He can’t come out and say “it’s over for B/S.” He put it in the most reasonable way. 17 seasons = never.

    Agreed.

    Yes. B/S are over. AB pretty much said it. By the way, the fact that Niall will appear but not in this seasons means that other seasons are coming! At least one more for sure!

    Yep after seeing AB’s answer S/B are over! The soulmates answer doesn’t even bother me anymore, he was backpeddaling the best he could!

    SVB and mods thanks for all your work getting this up and the live feed. I didn’t comment but enjoyed it all.

    Thank you for being so on top of the Paley TB Panel, SVB! You rock! I have been watching the vids posted on YT by this user. This is my fav. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JtTEySW0WEs. AS is so funny in the first part!

    Thanks, SVB. It’s great to see such quality footage. I was pleased with AB’s answer; I think it was a sensible one.

    Totally agree about B/S. It’s over!! :) Why did AP look so bored when AB called her and Steve soul mates? I would have taken that as a compliment. I’m less then impressed with her at panels.

    In defense of AP, I think she is a shy person in certain ways and I don’t think she was bored. I don’t think it’s her style to call attention to herself in that way and I actually appreciate it. If she were constantly gushing over SM (and she is definitely very complimentary toward him) in a super obvious, sicky sweet sort of way, I am sure people would be all over her about that. My impressions of them are that they really love each other and that they are really good together. Maybe she was really touched by AB’s comments and didn’t want to tear up or something, but I think comments like that probably make her feel put on the spot, even when they are really really nice comments and she deals with it the best way she knows how.

    True Jayetea. Maybe she gets tired of all the attention she and Stephen get. Who knows :)

    I agree, Jayetea. The thing I love about about the TB cast is their humility. They’re not media whores, they don’t put their private lives out there for all to see, and they seem to be really good with the fans and each other. It’s not in the words, but the body language. You can tell these people really like one another.

    I agree that Anna is kind of shy, and I think Alex is, too. I watched the entire set on YouTube, and while Skars is very gracious with the fans, he still seems a bit uncomfortable with all those screaming females. LOL. I love, love, love, the way he and Stephen interact. I’m loving their bromance! :-)

    Ashley Reply:

    AP is shy and a little awkward in public I agree…her and SM seemed embarrassed by the attention a little too, when Ab made the RL soulmates comment I mean.

    Hey, she said nice things about Eric…..so I don’t care! I think she’s a kindred spirit because I don’t like a lot of attention on me and don’t like public speaking either.

    i’m waiting to see him mouth “it happens”

    [Reply]

    Kayla Reply:

    It’s in the link I posted in my comment above. I don’t think he says ‘it happens,’ though, I think he says ‘it’s true.’ Same dif, and he’s adorable while doing it, of course!

    hime Reply:

    Lol Alex’s faces are totally hilarious when Anna is speaking about E/S… He’s kinda tenderly mocking her… :)

    Freyja Reply:

    It’s so cute haha. And she noticed it and it was like she was coyly teasing back. They do have great chemistry.

    I’m gonna have to watch that part for the umpteenth time because I thought he said “we do” or “you do” after she was asked if she acts on her attraction to Eric.

    [Reply]

    SVB Reply:

    Yeah I have to check this. What I put on the header of my round-up post was what came off Twitter but now that the video is out it seems he’s saying something else. But whatever he’s saying it’s in the affirmative so it’s all good.

    [Reply]

    jayetea Reply:

    I am pretty sure that Anna says “you never know” or something really close to that, and that Alex mouths “yes, you do, yes, you do”. As you said it’s definitely in the affirmative, so that what matters!! :)

    [Reply]

    Ashley Reply:

    Yeah on twitter they said he mouthed “it happens” but now all sorts of things are flying around….but any way you look at it was confirming it. AP herself said “you’ll have to watch and see”….that’s what you say when means yes but you can’t say it. :)

    I JUST realized why AP is looking so much better. Yes, her hair looks great but she let her eyebrows grow in. I know very random but last season her eyebrows were bothering me.

    [Reply]

    Serena Reply:

    Yeah I noticed that too and made a comment to myself about it. :lol: .. she totally did look a little alien like towards the end of S3. lol.

    Ashley Reply:

    Her hair is totally awesome too…the very long hair looks great on her.

    Yeah they fixed her eyebrows too, and that can change your appearance a lot.

    hime Reply:

    I notice that she looks better too. I’m happy for the return of long hair (at least SOMEONE has long blonde hair in this show ;) )… Someone will be grabbing those long locks I guess.

    Freyja Reply:

    OMFG you just had to say that didn’t you. SWOON *.* He is quite the hair grabber

    [Reply]

    Kayla Reply:

    “at least someone has long blond hair…”

    This. AP’s hair has really eaten my lunch for the past 3 seasons. In the books, her hair was very long (DAG talks about it being so long it was hard for her to deal with). If they couldn’t give Eric long hair, they should at least keep Sookie’s. And I’m not going to read the rest of your post again, hime, It’ll cause me to go off on a You Tube tangent looking for clips of said hair grabbing. *sigh*

    [Reply]

    hime Reply:

    LOL.
    I, for one, didn’t like AP’s hairstyle in season 2 and to some extent in s3 too. It was a little too short for my tastes and I just think the girl looks way better with long and slightly waved hair. It’s also more Bookie.

    LOL seriously, it was like where the hell did her eyebrows go. I guess she realized it too. I’m weird about eyebrows so I’m happy to see she grew them in lol eyebrows can make a huge difference on someone.

  • Amy

    So the Bl’s lovers are putting their own spin on things!

    After saying that AB stresses that Sookie ” perceives it as betrayal ” which means it may not mean betrayal, they also say that Alex mouths ” it should, it should” not “it happens”. So they are overjoyed about that. I guess they need to be happy about something given the wonderful gifts we got yesterday :)

    i think we can let them dream right….it was such a bad day for them LOL
    Btw i think (im not english but im almost sure) the lines are:

    Anna: “You never know….”
    Alex: “You’ll do, you’ll do” (mouthed)

    I think we’ll have some pretty hot scenes with these two…they have chemestry just by stay seat next to each others lol ;)

  • allabouteric

    Love the HQ video. Alex looks hot! He does look like a giant next to SM…lol. The man has buffed up a lot since that S4 AE promo video. He looks positively HUGE here. Love. Swoon.
    Anna looks absolutely gorgeous too. I think even SM looks dashing. I have always found him handsome. Damn this is a very good-looking cast!!

  • Leanne

    LOVE the Paley video, but wondering why Anna P. acts like she doesn’t want to be there. Also a little concerned by the pole that went up her rear when AB said AP and SM are soulmates (yark) in real life.

    [Reply]

    Kayla Reply:

    I think someone nailed it in an earlier comment. I think it might have made them a little uncomfortable. They did kind of give each other a secret little look, but really, if that were me, and a megabutton of people were staring at me, I wouldn’t know how to react to something like that.

    They also might have been fighting the need to roll their eyes at AB’s constant story-changing. Comic-Con last year had him pegging B/S as soul mates right before we all saw Sookie toss him on his arse at the end of season 3. Now he turns around not a year later and says they aren’t. I think SVB nailed it in the Paley review post. He just keeps throwing it out there because we’ll sit here and try to pick his meaning apart. lol.

    Rutina looks lovely in tha video. Didnt realise she was so pretty.

  • booksookie

    I like Anna’s look a lot here. I too noticed the long blonde hair and the improved eyebrows and I think she looks quite beautiful. And I liked the things she demurely said about Eric, trying hard not to spoil excessively. But, alas, I’m a spoiler whore and although I repent constantly, I never fail to fall off the wagon at the smallest stimulus! I’m sure June is going to find me saturated with everything TB is going to send our way, only to lament my lack of willpower as soon as the first episode airs and it’ll feel like a lame déjà-vu.
    Of course, I adored AS’s reaction, actually all the faces he made while Anna talked about E. Funny, but most of the things he said about what E is going to experience at least at the beginning of this season, fall very much in line with E’s point of view in DTTW as portrayed in Dee Dee’s fanfic (and I think she’s done an awesome job in voicing Eric)… Or maybe it’s so fresh in my mind ‘cause I’ve just completed reading this FIRST (for me) fanfic (following the recommendation you fine people gave in the fanfic thread).
    I usually invest into the character, let’s say I am over that age in one’s life when it’s still ok to talk to some boys-band poster attached to your bedroom wall as if they were your life-mates, but when it comes to AS I just love his humility, his constant regard and thoughtfulness to the fans. He seems to be a great person in RL and I doubt there could have been any better choice for E. Ever since the beginning of the series he backed up his character and everything he said about E showed that he understood perfectly what he was all about!
    I just hope he will get the recognition he deserves, other than always peaking the top of fan-favorites. He never fails to gather the biggest, loudest applause and you can’t attribute that to mere good-looks, especially in the middle of such a great ensemble as TB’s cast is! This should at long last be acknowledged by the powers that be and not only by the viewers. I just want him as a lead-character, damn it, I think it’s long due and it is my only complaint still standing about TB!

    I’ve seen all the videos at paley fest, thanks a lot!! alex is such a sweet guy, so adorable… i’m so looking forward to see this comedic side of him that Pam talked about. I agree with you book sookie he’s long due in a major leading character in an american film, say..Big budget Epic movie featuring long blond hair…. Yummy..

    [Reply]

  • alexNr1Fan

    Speaking of hair, coming to think of it, alex is naturally blond from head to toe, he’s done several swedish films sporting if not book eric’s thik long hair at least much longer and blonder than in true blood, so my question is? What’s the obsession with slicked back hair? Why not let his own beatiful hair grow wild and natural? Just saying….

  • Kayla

    I never really thought past TB Eric’s hair being cut off in S2 until I found this wonderful place. I mean, I thought “what a pity,” but never really went into it much. I agree with a few of the theories here, and I’ve cataloged them for the time we find out. I tend to think stuff like that is done for marketing purposes. While us die-hard Book Eric lovers want his physical representation on screen to be as close to the books as possible, I think the shorter hair might have come about because it better represents his position of power and the self-control he has to have over himself to maintain that position. Whether or not that is true remains to be seen.

    I’m so happy !!! Did anyone else get rather excited when AS said there were some friendly people in Bon Temp :-D

    Great Paley coverage SVB, much appreciated, thank you !!

    Looking forward to season 4

    [Reply]

  • alexNr1Fan

    I agree with you Kayla, you’ve got a good point there about changing his hair style depending on his position of power. But now, my dear fellow eric lovers, in this AE season there wouldn’t be a reason for that right? So now it calls for natural hair. I jut love to see him the way he is,I’ve got some nice pictures of him(actually quite a collection)i just don’t know how to post them here
