Last Sunday, I flew from Los Angeles to attend the Keystone Comic-Con in my hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Attending this event was essential for me since not only Stephen Moyer would appear, but also other cast members from True Blood would attend for a True Blood Reunion Panel. It also happens to be my hometown, so that also gave me an opportunity to also visit my family.
Participating in the panel along with Stephen Moyer (Bill) were Anna Paquin (Sookie), Kristin Bauer Van Straten (Pam) and Joe Manganiello (Alcide).

Now, thanks to fellow attendee @solamentenic we have combined my videos with hers to consolidate them into the two videos below.
Video 1 includes the following:
- Stephen Moyer discusses the death of the beloved Nelsan Ellis who played fan favorite, Lafayette
- The cast discusses how True Blood was a “walking lawsuit and that its content would probably make syndication.
- They were asked what they got out of True Blood:
- Stephen said that Kristin played a hard ass character who in real life cries at everything.
- They all discussed how the closeness of the cast and crew was unique.
- HBO is a class act that is willing to spend money to get a first-rate production.
- Discussion of compromising sex scenes
Video 2 includes the following:
- Stephen attempts to describe his twisted-head sex scene in season 3 as “sleeping” instead of using the real word because there were children in the audience.
- Stephen and Kristin talk about what it was like to film the war scene in Season 4 when the vampires (including Jason) fought against the witches curse and how funny it was filming that scene with Kristin.

Some of the videos we have gathered into these videos are mine but most have been donated to us. Many thanks to solamentenic for sharing her videos and photos with us so we can provide these memorable moments with some of the True Blood cast members with you! Also, thanks to Shadaliza for consolidating the videos for me.
