True Blood actor Joe Manganiello, who plays Alcide in the hit vampire series, has spoken of his characters relationship with Sookie, played by Anna Paquin. Alcide did not appear in the premiere of the fourth season of True Blood on Sunday but is set to return in the third episode.
Joe explained, "The great thing about Sookie is that she drags him off on all these adventures." Manganiello then continued by adding, "She's the key in unlocking that reluctant hero inside of him and he recognises that as a good thing." He also revealed how Alcide is now spoken for, which doesn’t go down too well with Sookie.
