"True Blood" heartthrob Ryan Kwanten sat down with "Extra's" Terri Seymour in Venice, Calif. to chat about his new role as American Ambassador for surf retailer Mambo.
The Sydney native said he felt a close connection to the label, explaining, "Mambo has actually been made from a small town called Manly, where I grew up."
He added, "It's a very sort of iconic brand in Australia, and now it's launching here in the U.S."
Kwanten has signed up to help start the new collection in America through Bon Ton department stores.
Although sworn to secrecy, the actor also dished a little on the upcoming Season 5 of his popular HBO series, saying, "This season I would say is the season of controversy. We're going to turn some heads this season. We're going to pull back to where they were and then some. If we cracked open the door before, we're going to smash it down."
As for what happens to Sookie (Anna Paquin) and Bill (Stephen Moyers), Kwanten said, "There's more in store for them, I think. They were a match made in heaven, but with him being the King now and with her dealing with her new fairy status, there's all sorts of things that are keeping them apart."
And what dangers lie ahead for Alcide (Joe Manganiello)? "He's again caught in the tumultuous love affair with Sookie. You can see that it's not one sided. That she's been very much denying it. She treads the water very carefully there."Guess "True Blood" fans will have to wait for all the juicy details when the show returns summer, 2012.
