Jessica Clark, who plays the Vampire Goddess Lillith, was asked how difficult it was to get all of the fake blood off after shooting.  “It’s really hard to get out.  At the end of the day, I shower, scrub it off and repeat two to three times.”   Clark’s character Lillith is covered head to toe in blood in nearly every scene.  Clark said that when she was presented with the role, she assumed it was going to be a little bit of blood sprayed on but in actuality it was more of a blood “bath”.

The “True Blood” stars held a jam-packed panel during the con to discuss the revelations of Season 6 and the upcoming 7th season, which will be the series last.  Attendees lined up hours in advance to get a spot in the Heritage Ballroom to get all the info from the stars themselves.


Season 7 of “True Blood” will air on HBO in 2014.
