Death Becomes True Blood’s Anna Paquin

September 9, 2011 by  

Sink Your Teeth into the Life of the Actress Behind Sookie Stackhouse:

Anna Paquin (Sookie Stackhouse) in Stylist magazine UK29-year-old Anna Paquin’s life has been a rollercoaster ride, to say the least. Paquin grew up in New Zealand and moved to L.A. when she was 16 and before that, at age 11, she became the second youngest actress to win an academy award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the 1993 film, The Piano.

She can also add Jane Eyre, Amistad, Almost Famous, and X-Men to her resume. In 2008, she began appearing on the new HBO thriller True Blood as Bon Temps’ psychic waitress, Sookie Stackhouse, and got married to her co-star and one-time on-screen love, Stephen Moyer, in August of 2010. After celebrating her first wedding anniversary, True Blood’s renewal for a fifth season, and four films coming out in the future, it seems a lot of things are coming together for Anna Paquin. Paquin adds that she and her husband have a life outside of True Blood so it’s never difficult to be married to Moyer and be romantically involved with him on screen.

She has not been one to shy away from speaking about her and her husband’s relationship:

“Maybe it should be weird, simulating sex with your husband in front of people. But it’s really not. When it’s a love scene with someone you actually love, there’s no feeling like, ‘Can I touch him here? Can I touch him there?’ You know what your boundaries are – or what they aren’t, I suppose.”

On True Blood’s fans, Paquin says:

“It didn’t used to be as crazy as it is now, but I don’t totally remember what it was like before. Being recognized happened much less often when I was younger, but it still happened. I don’t really notice it anymore to be honest. When I am out with friends, they will get kind of protective, and be like, ‘Do you want to move, people are staring?’ I’m like, ‘Oh no, we’re fine.’”
