While most True Blood fans are excited that the hit HBO series is back on their small screens, they might be saddened to find out that one of the vampire show's beloved characters will be getting axed this season. Though Carrie Preston - who plays Arlene Bellfleur - didn't divulge any names, she talks about how the tears were shed during a table reading for the script: "We had this one table read, the first time we were hearing the script out loud, and one of the actors started crying and then everybody joined in. It was a pretty beautiful moment."
Todd Lowe, who portrays Preston's husband Terry on the series, also confirmed the "major death" in an upcoming episode: "It was just a big surprise. I had gotten the script late and hadn't looked into it, so I was kind of like, 'Oh! Wow! That's different.' It saddened a lot of people."

Christopher Abbott has quit Girls after clashing with Lena Dunham. The actor - who played Charlie in the HBO show - has left after reportedly falling out with the creator as they began work on season three.
"They've just started work on season three, and Chris is at odds with Lena. He didn't like the direction things are going in, which seems a bit odd since the show put him on the map," a source told Page Six.
However, Christopher's representative insists he left Girls in order to focus on "other projects." The representative said, "[Chris] is grateful for the experience of collaborating with Lena, Judd [Apatow], and the entire Girls cast and crew, but right now he's working on numerous other projects and has decided not to return to the show."
Lena recently revealed she is excited about season three and wants to extend its run from 10 to 12 episodes. "We're starting season three at the end of March. I'm so excited. I would love that [to have 12 episodes instead of 10] I think that a little more would be just a little more storytelling real estate, and it would be amazing. But you know, so I shoot four-and-a-half months out of the year, then I'm editing, then I'm doing press, then I'm writing, then I'm back."
"I am a Beyonce fan and I am going to be watching this documentary even if she doesn't introduce us to new stuff... I want to watch it. Fortunately one of the TVs in our kitchen has closed captioning so I can understand what she says - because you know Beyonce can’t talk. Beyonce sounds like she has a fifth grade education... I just said, I'm a fan but lets call a spade a spade."
- Talk show host Wendy Williams anticipates Beyonce's upcoming HBO documentary, set to air Febuary 16, 2013.

Bradley Cooper says kissing Sarah Jessica Parker was a "nightmare." The Hangover actor guest starred in an episode of Sex and the City where he had to kiss Sarah's iconic character Carrie Bradshaw and he admits it was difficult because he was being told how to be intimate with her.
"I did Sex and the City and I was very nervous because I was driving a stick shift, a standard Porsche, and I thought I was going to bang Sarah Jessica Parker's head against the dashboard. That was all I was thinking about. And then right before we shot the scene, this guy came up and I think he said, 'SJP does no tongue. No tongue, man.' And I was like, 'Who's SJP?' So she kisses me, then straddles me in the front of the car and all I kept thinking about was keeping my tongue as far back in my mouth as possible. It was nightmare. But she wasn't - she was great."
Sarah Jessica Parker will never play another character like Carrie Bradshaw again.
The Sex And The City star has opened up about playing the famous role of Carrie Bradshaw in the hit TV series and two movies and admits that, although she loved playing the fashionista, she wouldn't choose to play a "flawed" individual with similar personality traits.
"I don't love the idea of playing another woman who loves fashion and is slightly flawed in New York City. I loved Sex and the City's Carrie and I don't want to do the poor man's version of her. And while those are often the lucrative things to do, it's more reason to look in the other direction," Sarah explained, speaking in ELLE magazine's "Women in Hollywood" issue.
AnnaSophia Robb will be playing a young Carrie in spin-off show The Carrie Diaries, which airs from January 2013.
Modern Family swept the board at the Emmy Awards last night winning four prizes. The sitcom took home the top Comedy Series prize as well as gongs for Supporting Actress and Supporting Actor in a Comedy for Julie Bowen and Eric Stonestreet, while the ABC show's helmer Steven Levitan won the Director award.
Psychological thriller Homeland upstaged some of the more established programs by winning four drama series honors including the main prize for the category and Series Actor and Actress in a Drama prizes for Damian Lewis and Claire Danes, respectively. Damian introduced himself to the audience as "one of those pesky Brits" and later admitted he thought Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston, who has won the accolade three times, would be victorious in the category again this year.
Mad Men and American Horror Story lead the nominations at this year's Emmy Awards with 17 each.
The advertising drama is hoping to gain its fifth Best Drama win, which would make it the only series ever to have won the accolade that many times. At present it is level on four victories with Hill Street Blues, L.A. Law and The West Wing. Other nominees in the same category are Breaking Bad, The Good Wife, Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, British Drama Downton Abbey and newcomer Homeland. Downton Abbey - which was awarded Best Miniseries in 2011, but has switched categories for 2012 - picked up 16 nominations.
Anna Paquin says her husband is completely comfortable watching her sex scenes with Alexander Skarsgard.
The 29-year-old actress, is married to Stephen Moyer - who is her True Blood co-star - and says that the two men are friends which makes it easier.
"We feel completely comfortable together. Everyone is very respectful of each other's boundaries ... They're all very gentlemanly about it," she said.
Anna, who plays Sookie Stackhouse in the show, met Stephen, who plays vampire Bill Compton, on the set of the program. Their characters were also lovers, but later split up on screen.
Anna - who is pregnant with twins - admitted that she has two sides to her personality and although she will be a maternal parent, she may also get urges to run away with her family: "I have a side that's very nesty. And another that thinks, 'Let's lock up the house and go away for five months.'"

With nearly just a month to go until the new season of True Blood returns, the showrunners continue to offer up even more delectable teasers on their YouTube page.
In the latest upload, Christopher Meloni of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit fame is unveiled as an upcoming vampire performing some type of ritual. IMDB lists his character as Roman, but the clip seems to indicate that he's also known as the Vampyr (we all know how important he must be if he spells the word in an exotic way). The all-important vampyr combined with the robes and dungeon setting gives me a bit of the Twilight Volturi vibe.
True Blood season 5 premieres on June 10.
