My New Fannish Obsession - True Blood|
I was surprised to find out how many of the main actors are not Americans. The actor playing Bill is British and Ryan Kwanten (Jason) is an Aussie who played a surfer on a popular soap there. He is a particularly fine comic actor!
The woman who plays Tara blows me away. She is in a very good Canadian movie called How She Move about a bright high school girl who has to leave the private school where she's enrolled and return to the inner city black neighbourhood she was trying to escape. She ends up joining in the dance competitions there and finding some balance in her identity. It's a very smart movie with amazing dancing. She's very good in the role, but you also don't realize just how funny she is. Tara is my favourite character on True Blood.

And Anna Paquin is from NZ, right? I think the accents are excellent. I'm not sure who my favorite character is - maybe Sam, maybe Lafayette. I just saw one where Lafayette is getting V from this pathetic loser vampire guy in exchange for sex. The vampire is clearly in love with Lafayette and Lafayette is obviously using him, but he sort of wants him to be happy, too.
Um, actually Anna P is your lantsman... she was born in Winnipeg and moved to NZ when she was 4.
Lafayette's gay V source is an excellent character for sure.

Cool on the Winnipeg connection.
Yup - Tara is my fave, too.
