Count Ashlee Simpson-Wentz and Victoria Principal among the stars who have fallen under the spell of HBO’s “True Blood.”
Actor Sam Trammell, who plays shapeshifter Sam Merlotte on the enchanting supernatural series, learned he has some very famous female fans when he helped out at Larry King’s telethon for the oil spill last month.
“This guy Pete Wentz, who is Ashlee Simpson’s husband, wanted to take my picture for Ashlee,” Trammell told the New York Post. “I was sitting between him and Nicole Richie. I felt like I was in a club. I was waiting for Lindsay Lohan to throw a drink on me.”
Former “Dallas” star Victoria Principal behaved even more boldly, gushing over the actor and, in particular, his nude scene in "True Blood's" first episode in which he only had a briefcase protecting his modesty.
“[Principal] was saying, ‘Oh, it was kind of distracting, because you’re naked,'" Trammell recalled. "It was insane. Victoria Principal was flirting with me!”
