Bauer, who plays the vampire Pam on the HBO series, spoke to AOL TV about what to expect from her character, claiming that Pam will become more edgy on the fourth season of True Blood.
"This year, the main thing that I felt was that I got to play her really edgy," Bauer said. "It's a really different side of Pam. We haven't seen it, we've suspected it, but she hasn't been unleashed ever. This year I feel is her most raw."
The actress went on to state that her character will interact more with Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) this season, becoming a mentor to the young vampire.
"[Deborah and I] have gotten to be together more this year and I really enjoy it because Deborah is so lovely," Bauer said. "I could easily feel like a corrupting force in her life, just being myself and her being herself.
"Joe Manganiello (Alcide) and I were joking about how Pam should probably have an advice column where she just gives wrong advice constantly."
Bauer said in December 2010 that her co-star Alexander Skarsgård is completely comfortable with nudity on the HBO series, stating that the actor was once naked for eight hours while filming.
True Blood returns June 26 at 9pm on HBO.
