Lauren Bowles on No More Witches and More

Lauren Bowles on No More Witches and MoreLauren Bowles initially joined True Blood in Season 3, she “secretly knew she had Wiccan tendencies,” which of course blossomed into a part of the show’s central storyline last year and eventually included Holly helping take down the evil witch, Marnie.

I kind of joked that season four I spent with my mouth agape. How many variations of shocked can I do?” Bowles said about having to react to birds coming alive and playing with magic, adding: “It’s great fun to just jump into the deep end and commit wholeheartedly [to the show]


And while the witches may have been defeated for now, Bowles thinks we’ve only glimpsed the extent of Holly’s powers.

I think she’s very straightforward and she’s not big on keeping secrets, but I think she’s by no means a push over either. She’s strong. She’s a survivor for sure. And what’s fun about this season, without giving too much away, we were so sort of focused on her Wiccan life – and that sort of blew up last year – that this year we’re going to get to know more about her personally.”


So… no more witches?

I’m more in the Merlotte’s world with the folks that work there as well as the sheriff. There have been a couple new people I’ve gotten to work with but I won’t say who.


As of the season premiere we already know that Holly’s personal life includes getting super cozy with Sheriff Andy (Chris Bauer) and filming their first naked bedroom scene together.

That was literally my first day back at work. ‘Hi there, you’re going to be naked in the bed with Andy,’” the actress laughed, pointing out that hitting the gym became a top priority before shooting that scene.

“What was so funny, I mean [Bauer] literally had to do the heavy lifting on the naked part, he was doing the full package; the poor man literally had a sock on and that was it… And in between takes we’re just shooting the shit, talking about kids and stuff. It was the most normal thing in the world to be naked in bed with your co-worker and talk about your kids. Bucky [Writer and Co-Executive Producer Brian Buckner] was like ‘This a new kind of post coital!‘”
