Sookie Stackhouse is No More, Stephen Moyer is Impressed:

Anna Paquin (who stars as Sookie Stackhouse in HBO's True Blood) goes for the mermaid lookWhat does a brunette who has been a blond for seven seasons of True Blood do once the show wraps? Go blue and purple of course! While Anna Paquin was happy to dye her naturally brunette tresses blond for the role of Sookie Stackhouse in HBO’s True Blood all those years ago, it seems she now has the seven year itch. Thanks to colorist Aura Friedman from the Sally Hershberger Downtown Salon in New York City, Anna has gotten the chance to finally live out a childhood dream:

Anna just wrapped True Blood and told me that she’d been wanting to color her hair purple and blue since she was 13. She’d wanted that color for years! Luckily, colorist Tracey Cunningham [had] already made her blonde, which makes adding colors like this so much easier. I used four colors—two kinds of blue and two kinds of purple—mixing and diluting the Manic Panic until we got the right shade.
