Interview with Anna Camp

Sarah with big hair

HBO

Did killing Suzuki prime Sarah for her showdown with the vamps?

Anna Camp

Definitely. In the most twisted way, it gave her the strength to climb those stairs. Being able to kill Suzuki is just another sign from God that she's on the right path.

HBO

She really believes she's doing God's work?

Anna Camp

It's an honest, true thing that she feels. And every little thing that happens is just another sign propelling her to move forward. She's dead set on the fact that God is telling her to do these things.

HBO

Why open the ceiling instead of just running away? She only narrowly escaped death by hiding under that pile of body parts.

Anna Camp

It's a combination of a need to finish what she started and that she's crazy enough to keep going. Anyone smart person would think, "What have I done? I have to get out of here." Before, she had no idea that she was capable of murder. I wouldn't know what it feels like after you've killed someone, thank God, but I imagine that your sense of reality is warped. Sarah's reality has never been the reality that everyone else lives in. But I think after committing murder, that's more than tipped the scales.

HBO

Why does she hate vampires so much?

Anna Camp

She had a sister who got addicted to V and vanished. Sarah found hope with the Fellowship of the Sun and Steve Newlin. She's a woman who's easily swayed and who wants to feel a part of something; she's black and white. And now that her husband is a gay vampire - and being vampire is far worse in her mind - she's completely humiliated and embarrassed. Eradicating vampires is her way of taking back control of her life. It's an extreme way, but that's her way.

HBO

You certainly wouldn't want her on your bad side.

Anna Camp

After last Sunday's episode, I'm afraid everyone will be scared of me now. Even my mom was a little freaked out by it.

HBO

What does Sarah think about Steve's last words?

Anna Camp

She definitely thinks he's about to say he loves her. The guilt is mounting and she's starting to have her doubts, but then he pulls out "Jason Stackhouse." She can't even process it.

HBO

Is she surprised that Jason lets her go?

Anna Camp

Very. She knows what she's done - I don't know if anyone ever deserves to die, but she's certainly been asking for it. But again, to her it's just another sign from God that she's doing the right thing. It's just more fuel to her fire: "I am right. I am God's tool. He's speaking through me." It's another notch in her belt of craziness.

HBO

Where do you think she'll go? Where would Sarah Newlin hide out?

Anna Camp

She's underground somewhere, plotting. I see her turning into a weird zombie of a woman. I think being sent away will make her more powerful in a sense. She'll shut down and become a robot for God.

HBO

A woman scorned?

Anna Camp

Poor Sarah. She's going to wind up in the loony bin.

HBO

What was it like to play the big villain this season?

Anna Camp

I had no idea at first. Each script I got was a bigger and bigger surprise. Sarah always wanted to be the brains behind everything; the woman behind the man. She takes over so unexpectedly, and I don't know if she was qualified. She thinks she's cool under pressure, but I don't think she was prepared to get all that power. She wanted to be Truman's wife, have a family with him and get into politics and write more books...I don't know if she was ready to walk down the halls of vamp camp.

HBO

What if things had gone the other way, and Sarah wound up getting turned vampire like Steve?

Anna Camp

Getting turned vampire would be the cruelest punishment for her - it's everything she abhors. I believe if she were turned, she'd commit suicide. She'd crawl to the top of a church and have the whole town there or something. And while she's frying, scream, "Death to all vampires!" Getting turned and living forever would mean that they won. Taking that away from them, even if it meant killing herself, would be a win for the humans.

Think Fast

 

If you could be any supe, what would you be? A shifter. That seems like the most fun and a great way to spy on people!

Who would you want to trade wardrobes with? Pam. She has the sexiest, boldest outfits.

If Sarah could hook up with anyone else on the show, who do you think it would be? Andy Bellefleur. If Sarah calmed down and everyone forgave her and let her come back to Bon Temps, I can picture her ponying up at the bar at Merlotte's and hitting on Andy. In a normal world, he's definitely her type of guy.

What's your favorite "bad thing?" A glass of white wine and macaroons. I love my sweets.
