Valentina Cervi Writes About Her First True Blood Table Read

Posted on the 23 January 2012 by Tbfansource @tbfansource

545454-valentina-cervi rbcasting.comTrue Blood newbie Valentina Cervi (Salome) recently wrote about her first table read for Italian magazine IO Donna. The post appeared on the magazine’s site on Friday in Cervi’s native language, Italian. Thanks to Binky from the site True Blood Confidential and the Bookies <3 True Blood group on Facebook, I have a correctly translated English version to share with you. Italian speakers can read the original post by clicking on the source link below.

In this entry, Valentina expresses how nervous she is for her first table read as she listens to the other more experienced cast members around her. But by the time her first line comes, she feels a little more at ease:

“This is the first meeting with my new team. About thirty actors listen to the brilliant producer, Alan Ball, giving information on new episodes of True Blood . At his side, the director and writer of the episode. Start reading, am a little ‘scared. It’s always the same the first time: it is still a beginning, a start. Listening with curiosity to the voices of my “fellow vampires.” “How good they are,” I think I recognize the characters, the shades, “feel” the characters. It is an easy read, but there is already clearly the flavor of the series. It is a united team, working together for several years: I tremble at the thought of my speech …Then I look up and, before me, at the other side of the round table, I see Anna Paquin , protagonist of the previous four seasons of True Blood . I get distracted for a moment: I remember her first film, the child of The Piano , and I think that – in the space that divides us and brings us together – there’s Jane Campion , the director with whom I also I made my debut (in Portrait of a Lady) : we both are deeply indebted to her. Funny, I relax. This strange coincidence somehow reassures me and gives me the courage to go ahead. It’s up to me to read: “Welcome.” I’m glad, not bad for the first line …”
