Naked power pumps Blood

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

ROB Kazin­sky (pic­tured) says there is noth­ing more dis­tract­ing on TV than a naked ac­tor hold­ing a con­ve­nient vase. The Bri­tish ac­tor por­trays vam­pire char­ac­ter Ben Flynn/Mack­lyn War­low in the pay TV se­ries True Blood, which is renowned for its raunchy scenes. He has stripped off for the show but in­sists he has no prob­lem flash­ing his mus­cles. ‘‘No. Noth­ing dis­tracts me more in a film than a naked ac­tor hold­ing a con­ve­nient­ly­placed vase. So if my char­ac­ter’s naked, he’s damn well naked. It was very em­pow­er­ing,’’ he’s tells Bri­tish mag­a­zine Heat. True Blood also stars Stephen Moyer, Joe Man­ganiello and Aus­tralian ac­tor Ryan Kwan­ten. All the men are seen in var­i­ous states of un­dress on the pro­gram, which is com­ing to an end af­ter its sev­enth sea­son next year. The other ac­tors are the only ones who make Rob self-con­scious at times. ‘‘You try,’’ he replies, when asked if he works out a lot. ‘‘But then you see Ryan and Joe Man­ganiello and you just cry in the cor­ner eat­ing dough­nuts.’’ Much of the nu­dity is be­cause there are a great deal of ro­mance scenes on True Blood. Far from be­ing hot to shoot, Kazin­sky in­sists they are no dif­fer­ent to other work he has done. ‘‘Not even slightly. Any sex scene is in­cred­i­bly me­chan­i­cal. A sex scene with (co-star) Anna Paquin is no dif­fer­ent to a reg­u­lar scene with her,’’ he says. Kazin­sky who got his break in Easten­ders has had roles in films in­clud­ing Pa­cific Rim and TV shows like Brothers and Sis­ters. He is at­tached to com­ing fea­ture films King­dom of Rain and Sirens.

True Blood airs Mon­days, Tues­day and Thurs­days, var­i­ous times, Show­case.
