Breaking: 'True Blood' promotes vampire Pam!

If you (like me) have been thirsting for a stronger dose of vampire Pam on True Blood, you are in luck: Kristin Bauer will appear as a full-fledged series regular in season 3, an HBO rep confirms.

Eric’s lesbian (or is it bisexual?) sidekick had previously been billed as a TB guest star. Last season, she appeared in 11 of 13 episodes, per The Hollywood Reporter, which first broke the story.

More Pam is definitely a good thing. Need convincing? Watch this.

    Awesome. Love her.

    • Zoey

      Ditto. She’s just hilarious. There’s always room for more Pam.

  • sam

    She’s great. Exactly as I pictured Pam who is an awesome character.

    Excellent news! I wish True Blood did those short online webisodes featuring minor characters like some other shows do… to keep us satiated until the new season.

  • VampirePamsGirl

    YES! I can now cross off two things from my True Blood Season 3 wish list: More Pam and a Godric flashback! Now if only they stop trying to paint Eric and Bill as black and white roles, Season 3 might just be pretty near perfect!

  • Tarc

    Actually, I don’t believe that she appeared in 11 of 13 epsiodes (far fewer), but she’s *always* memorable. Thank goodness, because Kristen Bauer is a star, and Pam is one of my favorite characters in the whole TV series.

      I thought 11 of 13 sounded wrong, too, so I checked IMBD and she has been in 11 total episodes– both seasons combined.

    • DB

      She’s my favorite. Pam only appeared in 11 episodes over the first two seasons COMBINED (not 11 out of last season), so definitely not enough. six more months to go…can’t wait!

      • Billy

        That sounds about right. 11 last season was way too many.

    • Zachary

      11 of 13 is wrong considering there were only 12 episodes last season, just like the first. Anyway, Pam is one of my favorite characters, too, and I’m happy to hear of her series regular status. Can’t wait for season 3!

      • Devon

        I think DB is right here, did a little research, and she’s appeared in 11 of 24 eps.

  • true grit

    Pretty cool. Pam is the shiznit! When her and Eric are together it’s priceless. I’m just waiting on them to cast Alcide!

    • DE

      I love her w/ Eric. The whole tiny humans bit was great!

  • Shaun

    Yay! Love Kristen as Pam and I love the friendship that Pam and Sookie develop in the books, I hope we’ll see more of that on the show. I’m with Celia, I can’t wait to see who they cast as Alcide!
