‘True Blood’ Star Joe Manganiello on Hookin’ Up with Sookie
EXTRATV – Actor Joe Manganiello, who plays werewolf Alcide Herveaux on the hit HBO show “True Blood,” talked with “Extra’s” Adrianna Costa about the upcoming Season 4 — including whether or not Alcide does the deed with Sookie (Anna Paquin).
“Well, I can say that in the season finale of Season 3, Alcide made a pass at Sookie, and we’ll definitely pick up where that left off,” teased Manganiello at the Ford Mustang Boss Workshop, where the actor mentors boys with Type 1 diabetes.
Was it weird to do love scenes with Paquin while her real-life husband, Stephen Moyer (who plays vampire Bill Compton), was on the set? Joe laughed, “I can’t say, because if I answered that question I’d be giving away whether or not we hooked up.”
The hunky actor can say he is excited about marrying his real-life girlfriend, actress Audra Marie, to whom he proposed last year. Manganiello said he was totally involved in picking out the engagement ring. “I made it, I helped design it. It’s one of a kind.”
