"Witches" is the buzzword of HBO's Season 4 of "True Blood," but Sam Trammell, who plays shapeshifter Sam, reminds us that we know very little about his character's brand of beast -- but that's about to change.

"We're going to meet a larger shapeshifting community," he tells Zap2it. "And explore more in depth what the mythology is of shapeshifting and what the rules are, how it works. And we're just going to get into all that, which I think is really cool. That's always the most interesting thing for me when you get into all that stuff."

"He's got a new love interest," Trammell adds. "And we're really going to have fun with the shapeshifting sort of rule. It's a great year for me."

Meet his new love interest, Janina Gravankar who plays Luna, who seems to have a problematic romantic history:



Judging by Sam's history with women, it sounds like we're in for a shapeshifter-werewolf brawl, right?
