Carrie Preston talks ‘True Blood’ season 7, Arlene’s love interest, ‘The Good Wife’ and Morgan Freeman
EXCLUSIVE: Carrie Preston has built an amazing resume of late with her reoccurring role on True Blood, an Emmy award nominated performance on The Good Wife as well as great performances on The Following and Person of Interest. Additionally, Preston can be seen in the upcoming film Life Itself, co-starring alongside Morgan Freeman and Diane Keaton.
Preston took a break from her busy schedule to speak with The Global Dispatch/Dispatch Radio about the shows, what’s ahead for her character Arlene as the seventh and final season of True Blood nears.
After purchasing the bar and hosting an event at the end of season 6, the new season will “pick up RIGHTwhere left off,” Preston says of Arlene’s storyline as season 7 begins. Fans have seen an “evolution of Arlene going from a pretty narrow minded person who hasn’t seen a lot of horrors in the world…to become more tolerant of things that are maybe different.”
She confirms Arlene gets a new vampire friend in the form of Riley Smith as Preston offers nothing but praise for her co-stars, HBO’s approach to the show as she discusses how season 7 and earlier episodes come alive.
Carrie took home the 2012-2013 Emmy Award for her Guest appearance on The Good Wife and recounts her return to the show and reading the scenes in season three which were “something special.”
Beyond her great roles on TV, Preston also will be co-starring in Life Itself and discusses working with Morgan Freeman and one of her idols in Diane Keaton. No spoilers here, but she shares a funny story about one of her co-stars.
