'I think it was one of those things where you just fall in love with who you fall in love with,' the Tara depicter says about the change of sexual orientation for one character.
It turns out some Truebies' guess was true. After it was reported that one of "True Blood" characters would change sexual preference from a heterosexual into a gay, many had predicted that it was Tara and the Sunday, June 26 premiere confirmed it.
Sharing her thought on her character's love life, Rutina Wesley says, "I don't think she was expecting it. I think it just happened. I think it was one of those things where you just fall in love with who you fall in love with." She goes on explaining, "I don't think she labels herself as one thing or the next. She just started hanging out and the next thing you know, she was in love."
"I think Tara - if she is going to have a love interest this season - she's finally ready for it. She's had time to find herself and think a little bit," the actress adds. On how Tara will be seen this season, she states, "I think she's finally going to love herself in a way that is beautiful. Her self-esteem is back up and that's opened her up to love someone else. I think she also needed a new lease on life. She totally comes back more zen, and she's a feisty season one Tara who we all loved."
As for Tara's past relationship with late Eggs, Wesley thinks it was not love. "Every time she was with him she was either stoned or under a spell. I don't think that was real," she supports her opinion. "I think it's going to take her some time to realize that, but I think what she has now is a little more significant."
