True Blood’s Kristin Bauer Talks Pam and Possible Future With Tara
Kristin Bauer’s Pam is one of the reasons to not miss an episode of HBO’s sexy, salacious True Blood. Pam is a bisexual vampire and brothel-owner who constantly flaunts her sexuality; it’s as if passion drips from her every extremity. What has many viewers extra excited this season is the prospect that Pam may have a fling with Rutina Wesley’s Tara, another lady-loving character. Pam turned Tara into a vampire in the season premiere, which is the perfect way for the writers to get them in the sack (or coffin). AfterEllen caught up with Bauer and got some juicy tidbits from the sexy, tattooed actress.
In response to the question of whether or not Pam has been with women Bauer told AE,
“I think it’s just who she is and she can see sexy in men or women, but I feel that also coming from that life, if you happen to be — I had a friend who was bisexual and he was exactly 50/50. He was like "Hot is hot." And if you have that proclivity and came from that background, personally, I would be choosing the sex that hadn’t caused you pain. So that’s what I have in my head."
On whether or not Pam and Tara will hook up Bauer said, “Well, Rutina and I, of course, saw the equation and have been wondering [if we’ll be paired together romantically].”
Bauer also weighed in on Pam's relationship with on Miss Sookie Stackhouse.
“Pam often flirts with Sookie (the character played by bisexual actress Anna Paquin) and she’s a fairy, but yet, she was Eric’s and the great thing about True Blood and HBO is we get to explore these areas and for a few reasons," Bauer said. "We don’t have censorship. That’s a pretty strong word but we can be very free here and also we get to take our time and watch these complex relationships develop, so yes, it’s been fun and hopefully it’s fun for the watchers.”
True Blood airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET, and is available on demand from HBO GO.
