A friend of mine mentioned that in the love triangle you have going on in the show, she likes is that it seems like Eric and Bill spend as much time staring deeply into each others’ eyes as Bill and Sookie do. And of course then Evan Rachel Wood’s character told you guys to just do it already. How do you guys feel about how that relationship is going?
Eric and Bill? I love it. I think that it’s so much fun for Eric to toy with Bill, because Bill is so serious, he’s so young and naïve in a way, and Eric enjoys that. Bill’s so, “Oh, I’m in love and I’m going to save Sookie,” and to Eric, Bill’s not even two-hundred years old, so to Eric he’s just a little baby. Eric knows he’s in control and he’s in power and he really enjoys all those moments and seeing Bill upset and angry, because to Eric it’s not a real threat
Skarsgard said that Eric’s ancient history is going to be further explored during the season as well. “In Season 2 there was a flashback. We see when Eric was a Viking, and there will be another flashback. We’ll see Eric and someone else as a tag team – I don’t want to reveal from what era, but it’s a couple of really fun scenes.”
So what’s it gonna be? Eric and Godric snacking on some knights of the round table? Or Eric and Pam smoking some ganja at Woodstock and chowing down on hippies?
