Love seems to be in the air given the True Blood season 7 spoilers we’ve seen lately. First casting put out a notice for Eric’s (Alexander Skarsgård) French lover Sylvie. Now Michael Ausiello of TV Line reports that Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) will be getting a new love interest in this week’s Ask Ausiello. Lafayette hasn’t had lovin’ since his brujo boyfriend Jesus (Kevin Alejandro) died tragically at the end of season 4. But according to the report, Lafayette has a vampire boyfriend named Drake. And apparently Drake will be getting naked:
Question: Do you have any news on the storylines or new characters of True Blood Season 7? —Tom
Ausiello: Lafayette’s getting a new boyfriend — and a serious one at that. After spending much of Season 6 in the shadows, Nelsan Ellis will sashay back to the forefront in True Blood‘s final season — with a little help from Drake. Described as a cross between Jim Morrison and James Dean, this brooding and insanely good-looking vamp is a compassionate protector with a poet’s edge. The series-regular role calls for a twentysomething actor who is comfortable performing in simulated (and near-naked) sex scenes with another man in front of the director, assistant director, stage manager, script supervisor, camera operator, first assistant camera, second assistant camera, boom operator, production sound mixer, key grip, best boy grip, gaffer, lighting technician, makeup artist, hairdresser, costume designer, a half-dozen production assistants and Sally with craft services (who shouldn’t be peeking in but probably will be).
