There’s a lot of love between the cast of “True Blood,” even if it means supporting an actor who was recently killed off the show. The man behind the late Steve Newlin, Michael McMillian, held a book launch event for his novel “Steve Newlin’s Field Guide to Vampires” at West Hollywood, Calif.’s Book Soup on Nov. 18, and his fellow castmembers Deborah Ann Woll and Anna Camp showed their support by attending.
“Steve Newlin’s Field Guide to Vampires (And Other Creatures of Satan)” is slated to be released on Nov. 26. Zap2it spoke with McMillian at San Diego Comic-Con about what drew him and co-writer, “True Blood” associate producer Gianna Sobol (second from the left, above), to the project.
“The idea behind the book is that it was [Steve Newlin’s] journal when he was a human, and the research he was doing on vampires and the supernatural world from the time during and after Season 2 and before he was turned into a vampire sometime during Season 4,” he said.
“True Blood’s” seventh and final season is slated to premiere on HBO in June 2014. Actor Stephen Moyer will direct the premiere episode. Check out pictures from the launch event below:
