Natasha Alam joined the season 3 cast of True Blood as Yvetta, a sexy dancer at Fangtasia as well as Eric Northman’s sex partner. Not a bad gig really. No stranger to nudity (she’s posed for Playboy), Alam still wasn’t truly prepared for her first day on set, where she and Alexander Skarsgård were scheduled to film a sex scene. She talked to Wetpaint about how her nerves were getting the best of her:
“We were both naked and I was tied up to the ceiling, and I was really nervous because I’d never done anything graphic like that. I wasn’t sure what protocol was. Did we rehearse like that? Was I supposed to keep my hands in the ropes the whole time? It was stressful, but then Alexander walks in and he was just really cool about it. He drops his robe and he’s totally naked there, not even wearing the modesty underwear, and that really helped me for him to be so nonchalant about it. His confidence gave me confidence.”
It sounds like confidence is something that Eric and Alex have in common. However, not so much like her character, Kristin Bauer van Straten was very un-Pam-like toward Alam, treating the Uzbekistan beauty with kindness and affection:
“Kristin is this loving, very maternal creature. She’s so sweet. When you meet her the first time, she gives you so much great, comfortable energy that you feel like you’ve known her most of your life. She helped me with my mom’s immigration papers, giving me advice and tips from when her husband went through the process.”
Yvetta may have ran off with a chunk of Fangtasia’s loot in season 3, but any of you Truebies think we’ll see her back in Louisiana any time soon?
