I’m not an omnivore, I just play one on TV.

At least that’s the case for True Blood actress Michelle Forbes who plays evil lady Maryann Forbes on the hit show.

Forbes recently sat down with to discuss her character, her diet and her personal belief system. She said:

“I do believe that she’s a character that’s all about perspective. If you think that this is an immortal being. She’s been around since the beginning of time. She’s lived in certain periods of our humanity, where there were people who would sit and watch other men tear each other apart for sport. Children were sacrificed. It’s not unheard of in history. In her mind, she’s seen it all. I think what’s great about the storyline is that it challenges our belief system. You and I can sit here in 2009 and say it’s outrageous that someone would sacrifice humans. My belief system, as a vegetarian, can’t believe that animals are being sacrificed. I stand by that in Maryann’s mind, there’s nothing malevolent. She has a different way of looking at the world.”

We’re pretty big True Blood fans here at the Razz and happy to see that all those human hearts Maryanne eats are probably soy-based. What CAN’T you do with mock meat?

    I love ‘True Blood’!

    I think it’s ‘up there’ along with ‘The L Word’, ‘Medium’ and ‘Fringe’…

    Anyway, I’m glad to know that some of the cast members of ‘True Blood’ are veg*ans or support animal rights.

    Although I hate her character (it’s really annoying), I must say she’s a wonderful actress and that my respect for her just went!

    Oh, her character gives me the shivers. But that’s three cast members in support of animal rights, as Alexander Skarsgard and Kristin Bauer (who play the vampires Eric and Pam) support an organization fighting whaling.

    And I don’t think she was eating the hearts; she was just cooking them up and enjoying all the chaos that ensued.

    I’m a die hard fan and yes we all hate her character (which shows what a great actor she is able to convey being so evil) but soo soo glad to hear it’s fake meat she’s eating!

    Tru Blood is the best (besides weeds and maybe Dexter :)
