After seven seasons, True Blood has come to an end. For Deborah Ann Woll, who played Vampire Bill’s progeny Jessica, she was thrilled to make it to the end of the series. The threat of always being killed off the HBO series was a constant worry.

She explained, “Especially when you’re playing a character who makes some really big mistakes but is primarily a good person, you worry a lot because it would be very heart-wrenching to many characters if Jessica died. Imagine the storyline for Bill if Jessica died. They could kill me off and have a field day with the results of that. I was always very nervous because it seems like such an emotionally powerful storyline.”

Woll has fond memories of the series and she picked her favorite moment with her character.

The 29-year-old revealed, “I always like it when characters make mistakes. That’s the most fun to play. It’s no fun to be good all the time and right all the time. You want your character to struggle and suffer and learn. To me, the killing of the fairy girls was remarkable step to take. You’re not going to kill off Jessica without having her kill some teenagers, and that was also a very important moment for her and Jason. I like that she went to him afterward. That allowed them to take another step in their relationship. That would definitely be a move I thought was really courageous. I was daunted by it but also enjoyed exploring the deeper recesses of her character.”

Fans of True Blood can look forward to Woll starring as Karen Page in the TV adaptation of Marvel’s Daredevil for ABC.
