Changes Ahead for Lafayette on 'True Blood' Final Season

Ellis

[SPOILERS]

Michael Ausiello at TV Line has the scoop:

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).

Above, Lafayette pictured with Jesus, a lover from an earlier season.


Six Unforgettable Gay Moments From 'True Blood'

BY BOBBY HANKINSON

It’s no secret that HBO’s True Blood has built a solid gay fan base. Yes, there are parallels between the vampires' quest for civil rights and the current climate for LGBT Americans. But, beyond that, the over-the-top series serves up plenty of action with an abundance of beefcake. Don’t let the vampires, werewolves and witches fool you; this series is not for kids.

In honor of the sixth season premiere Sunday on HBO, we’ve rounded up six of our favorite gay moments from the show’s previous seasons.

Nelsan Ellis on Lafayette: 'I Didn't Really Want a Love Interest'

Jesus_lafayette

Nelsan Ellis, who plays Lafayette on True Blood and whose relationship with Jesus (Kevin Alejandro) is developing quite quickly, told Digital Spy earlier this month that he doesn't want Lafayette to be in a relationship:

"I didn't really want a love interest. I like Lafayette as just a prostitute... I don't think he's a settle-down-right-now type of dude. I think later down the line, but I think he's so much about his exploits and making money and stuff. I know a lot of people wanted him to settle down and I think the gay community wanted him to settle down...I don't want it to last long. No, I don't want it to last long. Maybe when Lafayette is like 35, you know what I mean? Maybe. But Lafayette is like 28....[Creator Alan Ball] told me it was surprisingly tender... We were just trying to make it real and believable. We know the show has a huge gay fanbase so we wanted it to be believable for all the fans because when the camera's right here all that love's got to manifest itself. There are deep feelings and I think they're falling in love."
