Most of you already know that I write articles and recaps for True Blood fan site, TrueBloodNet. But one of the awesome perks of the job is when I get to attend True Blood events and interview the cast.
This week saw me getting the chance to sit down with True Blood’s resident supernatural doctor, Dr. Ludwig, played by Marcia DeRousse. How cool is that? *fan girl squeals in excitement*
Here’s a snippet of what Marcia had to say:
For fans of Dr. L, the actress who plays the miracle worker to the supernatural, Marcia DeRousse, her latest guest appearance was just as unexpected as it was to the fans:
I was shocked, more than anything else. I thought Dr. Ludwig had been put away for good. So, after the shock, I was also excited. I was just happy every time Dr. L was brought in. This time was the most fun, but I loved all three stories she was in.
she said when she stopped in for a quick chat with TrueBloodNet.
In Episode 7 (entitled May Be the Last Time) we find Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) desperate to find a cure for Bill Compton’s (Stephen Moyer) accelerated dose of Hep-V. Considering Sookie suspects her fae blood may be the reason Bill’s strain is so virulent, she calls in resident doctor to the supernatural, Dr. Ludwig, to try and sort it all out. While Dr. L leaves in a hurry once she realizes Sookie is related to dwarf killer, Niall Brigant (Rutger Hauer), is it possible Dr. Ludwig could have helped cure Bill, if she were given enough time? According to Marcia:
I think she THINKS she could cure Hep-V, but as to whether she actually could – well, who knows? She is a pretty kick-ass character, but maybe not the actual best doctor! (Please don’t tell her I said that! HA!)
Don’t worry, your secret is safe with us Marcia
