Eight Forty-Eight

'True Blood' star Kristin Bauer stops by Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo

The HBO series True Blood imagines a world in which vampires have come out of the shadows. They advocate for their rights, run for public office. And some take humans as lovers. Or pets.

The show is set in Bon Temps, Louisiana, and the title references the name of the synthetic blood that some vampires drink instead of human blood. Wisconsin native Kristin Bauer plays Pamela Swynford De Beaufort, one of the vampires on the show. She joined Eight Forty-Eight from her home in L.A.

This weekend, Bauer will be attending the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo at McCormick Place.
