Your Frist Look At Evan Rachel Wood On True Blood + Spoilers!

Evan Rachel Wood as Queen Sophie-Anne in True Blood

Evan Rachel Wood will FINALLY be making her much talked about appearance on “True Blood” next Sunday and I’ve got your first (bloody) look of her as the lesbian Vampire Queen of Louisiana in a just released picture, plus a nice synopsis of what to expect filled with spoilers.

Won’t you come inside?

Actress Evan Rachel Wood is set to make her debut as Vampire Queen of Louisiana Sophie-Anne LeClerq on the August 30th episode of HBO’s True Blood, and by all indications, it ain’t gonna be pretty.

Show creator Alan Ball told Entertainment Weekly that Sophie-Anne is a vampire “nobody’s ever entirely happy to see,” and says, “she’s very powerful, capricious, and most likely insane.”

Sounds like fun! Everyone seems to be anticipating her appearance.

It is presumed Sophie-Anne will be called upon by Bill Compton (who has a history with her) to help calm the chaos in Bon Temps created by the meanad Maryann Forrestor. Whether or not she ultimately proves to be a help or a hinderance is a matter for speculation.

So what do we know about Sophie-Anne?

For starters, she’s somewhere between 400 and 1100 years old (depending on whom you ask) and was created in her early teens. She’s ostensibly French, but she has no French accent.

Sophie-Anne has a special gift that allows her to communicate telepathically with the “children” she’s created. She says she can keep her “children” with her, talking to each other and loving each other physically.

This differs from normal vampire “maker”/”child” relationships which start out as companions or lovers but do not last long (in vampire standards). Usually, the child will leave the maker, and must only come again when he/she is called upon by the maker.

In Charlaine Harris’ books, Sophie-Anne sent Bill back to his hometown of Bon Temps to find and seduce Sookie Stackhouse because Sookie’s telephatic ability might be valuable to her.

That would explain Bill’s sudden appearance at Merlotte’s in the first episode of the series, where Sookie was a waitress.

The revelation might also drive a wedge between Bill and Sookie, pushing Sookie closer to vampire sherriff Eric, who is already in Sookie’s head and seems intent on turning her into a vampire.

Apparently the queen swings both ways – Sookie learns that Sophie-Anne turned her cousin, Hadley, into a vampire and had a romantic relationship with her.

Although she’ll only grace the final chapter of this season, Sophie-Anne is expected to play a pivotal role in season three.

Ball said Sophie-Anne has “more than one secret agenda, which we will slowly become aware of in season three.”

So it sounds like Bon Temps is trading one crazy bitch (Maryann) for another. Or maybe there’s room for two!

Bring it on, Alan Ball!
