Valentina Cervi Talks With TV Guide About Salome’s Purpose, Roman, and More!This past Sunday on HBO’s True Blood we were introduced to the vampire authority and Salome (Valentina Cervi) is the right-hand women to Roman (Christopher Meloni). Valentina sat down with TV Guide to talk about her character in this upcoming season.

How does Salome fit into the vampire authority?

“She is the right hand of Roman at the beginning. She shares a very special intimacy with him, so they have a layered relationship. Every vampire has a different agenda in The Authority, and of course, we’re all next to Roman, but the interesting thing is that everybody has his or her own way of thinking, and when the season goes on, you will find out where everybody stands, and who everybody stands next to. Of course there’s a lot of Biblical and historical references because they have inspired Salome from the biblical Salome. She’s been a victim since she was a kid. She was sold by her mother when she was a kid, so she has a lot of hate in her, and she brings that hate and that need of love with her in the season.”

What does Salome and the authority really want from Bill and Eric?

“There’s an apparent reason and it is to bring them on her side. She wants people to be on her side, and she understands who people are. At the beginning, she can’t really trust Eric. She knows Eric, she knows everything from his past, and she knows about Godric and Nora. With Bill, she feels that he is someone she can, in some way, manipulate more. At the same time, she respects Bill more because she sees his heart and she knows that he has a good heart. She’s really intrigued by him. She will have feelings for both of them during the season. It’s not that she wants something; she’s a loving character, even if it doesn’t seem like it. She’s full of love and needs to be loved. It’s complicated.”

Salome was somewhat close with Nora. Do you think that your character my decide to switch sides?

“We don’t know what Nora’s plan really is right now, but the thing is, she is like my sister. I sponsored her Chancellorship at the beginning, and so her betrayal really hurts me. We will see who stands on whose side. Not everything is what it seems. I think she loves Nora as a sister and she feels incredibly bad, but I also think that everybody has to do what they have to do, so they’re going to have an explanation afterwards of why Nora did what she did. Who knows that what you see is what it seems? Maybe there’s another backup plan.”
