Speaking exclusively to SciFiNow, True Blood Season 7 star Kristin Bauer van Straten says that there’s no reason for the story to end when it comes to her character, the arch vampire queen Pam – mistress of the withering put-down.

“I probably would [be up for a spin-off],” Bauer van Stragten told us, “especially right now because I love Pam so much.

“I can’t see why True Blood can’t make a movie, when you look back on the shows that did. I just think if we had the right script, then we and the fans would be interested. It all starts with the writing.”

A movie would be the perfect way to cap off the show, as for Bauer van Straten who’s spent five years putting the vamp into vampire, it’s hard to let go.

“I can’t believe I won’t be putting on those corsets and high heels next January,” she admits. “I love this character so much, I could never get bored of her or hanging out with [Eric Northman star Alex] Skarsgård. Every series has to end at some point, unless it’s The Simpsons.

“You’re never sad when something crappy is ending, so it’s a good thing that I’m upset.”

True Blood Season 7 is airing now on HBO in the US and on FOX in the UK. Pick up True Blood Season 5 on DVD for £28.75 or Blu-ray for £36 from
