Chris Bauer, the talented actor that plays frustrated hero, Andy Bellefleur, in HBO‘s hit series True Blood sat down and talked to The Fix last week and they’ve just released the interview. In the interview, Chris talks about his admiration for the True Blood writers, where he sees Andy coming from and how he portrays him as an actor. When talking about Andy’s attraction to V, Chris says:

His entire personality—namely his visible externals—are completely consistent with an alcoholic make up. At the end of season three, he finds out vampire blood has all the properties, and I think it’s evident that he was immediately intrigued. In some previous episodes, he had sworn off alcohol for life but vampire blood isn’t alcohol, which is so often the thought process of people who transfer addictions. All it took was one little drop for him to fall head first into the hole.

The interview is an interesting read. It’s clear that Chris is a thoughtful guy who doesn’t want to impose his views on anyone. For him, and Alan Ball, True Blood is about entertainment first and social commentary second, or perhaps even third; although many True Blood fans see it the other way around.
