When True Blood kicks off its fourth season Sunday on HBO (9/8c), the interspecies couple find themselves navigating an unconventional domestic situation where simple issues like dinner protocol can trigger all-out war.
Press play below for a little taste of what I’m talking about.
“That was a fun scene,” shares Hoyt’s portrayer, Jim Parrack, of the couple’s alternately hilarious and heartbreaking culinary showdown — which, as you’ll find out on Sunday, escalates into an all-out egg fight. “Once the eggs come out [it was all over]. I flicked the eggs in her face and we had an egg fight.”
Parrack’s leading lady, Deborah Ann Woll, admits the sequence rattled some folks. “A couple of people came up to us after they saw that scene and were like, ‘It was like mommy and daddy were fighting,'” she says with a laugh. “They couldn’t handle it.
“We got very messy that night,” she adds. “I think what made the [final cut] was a cleaner version, but we were covered [with egg] by the end of that shoot.”
Parrack says it was inevitable that the duo would hit a few speed bumps on the road to eternal happiness — if there is such a thing in Bon Temps. “You put together a guy who’s never had a girlfriend and a vampire — a new vampire — and you get all kinds of domestic trouble.” (Reporting by Vlada Gelman)
