“True Blood” cast to do Comic-Con sans Alexander Skarsgard

By Kim Palacios

hollywoodnews.com: Per HBO’s announcement, the “True Blood” cast will attend Comic Con 2011 in San Diego late next month. The July 2nd panel will feature Alan Ball, Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Sam Trammell, Ryan Kwanten, Rutina Wesley, Kevin Alejandro, Kristin Bauer van Straten, Nelsan Ellis, Joe Manganiello and Deborah Ann Woll (Entertainment Weekly’s Tim Stack will moderate).

Conspicuously absent will be Alexander Skarsgard, the sexy Swede who has gained nearly as much attention for his role as co-stars Anna Paqin and Stephen Moyer. His absence belies his resilience during the Season 3 finale, during which his character Eric survives both exposure to the sunlight and being buried alive.

Also announced were lineups for “Game of Thrones” (which will include uthor George R.R. Martin as moderator, with attendees including David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington, Jason Moma and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau).

“True Blood” will appear at Comic-Con for the fourth time; for “Game of Thrones” the 2011 event will be its first.

    I am very disappointed in Alexander Skarsgard, this is two years in a row now he has missed going to comic con. So much for him being so grateful to the fans, obviously it is to beneath him now! My opinion of him has been slowly slipping, and this is not helping much.

    He didn’t appear last year, either. What gives?

    it’s called work ppl. The cast is filming TrueBlood for 6 months straight. Then when it finally wraps, he is filming movies for the other 6 months. Give the man a break.
