A Valentine to Rutina Wesley

August 9, 2010

In honor of the amazing work she’s been putting in this season, I thought you might want to see what True Blood would be like without the talented Rutina Wesley. In the original, unaired pilot, Tara was played by soap veteran Brook Kerr. Kerr isn’t a bad actress, but Wesley owns the role. Below, the scene we were introduced to Tara. Watch the differences in delivery and revel in the brilliance.
