"True Blood” star Ryan Kwanten, the hilarious Jason Stackhouse, says he's the "go to guy” when a production calls for panthers! In the latest season of True Blood, Kwanten got up close and personal with a big feline when Jason's new girlfriend reveals that she is indeed a Werepanther. "You're definitely on your toes” when working with the big cats, he said.
His latest film, "Red Hill," also called for a panther until it turned on its handler. Instead, Ryan Kwanten acted while writer/director Patrick Hughes pretended to be the panther off camera. Kwanten joked that it was his "finest bit of acting to keep a straight face and try to stay in it while my director was licking his paws and carrying on.” The film will be released this Friday, November 5.
