God Save The Vamp Queen - Evan Rachel Wood's Anemic Performance in HBO True Blood
I was not impressed with Evan Rachel Wood portrayal of The Queen and underwhelmed at her character's unveiling on HBO's True Blood. Admittedly, I'm not a fan of hers, but I was hoping she would at least bring some bite to the role. She looked stunning as a vampire, but Wood's performance seemed bland and superficial.
|Fans of hers will say that she was playing coy. I love a character that plays coy to his/her advantage. But Wood's performance lacked scene-stealing power. When the queen mentioned Eisenhower, I didn't get the feeling that she was ever in that era. I don't think the actress has said the word Eisenhower prior to this role. |
Lorena was a vamp, whom I didn't necessarily like, but commanded a certain presence. Jason has some ridiculous lines but pulls them off. I'm hoping Evan Rachel Wood will bring a bit more seductive provocation in future episodes. She dumped Billy Elliott, stole Marilyn Manson from Dita and then had sex with him in his music video. GROSS!! So she should be able to deliver the drama!
