True Blood's Rutina Wesley on Lesbian Tara: 'Am I Duct-Taped to a Toilet? No? OK, Cool.'

Some actors might raise an eyebrow if their long-running heterosexual character suddenly took a turn for the gay, but not Rutina Wesley. When she discovered the writers’ plan to have her Tara kick off Season 4 of True Blood as a lesbian cage-fighter, the first question she asked was “Is she gonna be happy?”

Wesley sat down with TVLine’s Michael Ausiello at our Comic-Con interview suite to discuss how she found out about Tara’s shift in sexuality, what she found difficult about Season 3’s toilet scene, and whether her character is “just going through a phase.”
