Question: Dude! What’s going on?! Where’s all the True Blood scoop!? –Ryan
Ausiello: Chill, bro, I’ve got just the tease for ya — and so does the show. Alan Ball and Co. are currently talking to “name” actresses to appear in just one episode this season (and more in future ones). The character? No less than Sophie-Anne, the 500-year-old queen of the Louisiana vampires. My mole tells me that Her Highness is as bright and witty as she is powerful and dangerous. (Isn’t that always the way?) Michelle Pfeiffer, call your agent — yesterday! [Entertainment Weekly]
Desculpa, rapaz, eu lóvo Michelle Pfeiffer – a gente até aniversaria no mesmo dia – mas Sophie-Anne Leclerq [que é mais velha do que Eric, mil anos de idade] foi vampirizada quando era adolescente. Quando li os livros imaginei a Dakota Fanning no papel – infelizmente, ela parece ter assinado com a série de filmes Twilight e não acho que vá repetir personagens, ela é talentosa e versátil demais pra isso. Sophie-Anne tem os cabelos castanho-avermelhados como Dakota usou em O Amigo Oculto e tem olhos castanhos mas, hey, se o Robert Pattinson consegue, pra ela seria um passeio na floresta.
Depois vou procurar a descrição dela nos livros, a parte que fala da aparência frágil adolescente.
Then the limo door opened, and before Mr.Cataliades could scramble to help her out, the queen of Louisiana stepped out of the vehicle.
She was beautiful, of course, but not in a fairy-tale princess sort of way. I don’t know what I expected, but she wasn’t it. While Bill and Bubba scrambled to their feet and then bowed deeply, I gave her a good once-over. She was wearing a very expensive midnight-blue suit and high heels. Her hair was a rich reddish brown. Of course she was pale as milk, but her eyes were large, tilted, and almost the same brown as her hair. Her fingernails were polished red, and somehow that seemed very weird. She wore no jewelry.
Since she was a queen, she was an old vampire, and the oldest ones, the ones who sought power in the vampire infrastructure, were among the scariest. It had been so long since she’d been human that there might not be much remembrance of humanity left in her. [Charlaine Harris, One word answer in Bite, 2005]
