Anna Paquin on Larry King Now – “Auditioned for The Piano on a Whim”

July 21, 2014

True Blood Fans Are Glad Anna Paquin Made This Choice:

Anna Paquin stars as Sookie Stackhouse in HBOs True Blood Season 7Make sure you tune into Larry King Now on Monday 21st July 2014 at 5PM ET for the full interview Larry King did with True Blood star Anna Paquin (who stars as telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse in the HBO vampire series). But, in the meantime, here’s a few snippets to keep you satisfied until then.

In the first sneak peek, we find out that Anna Paquin only decided to audition for The Piano (for which she won an Oscar for her part at the age of only 11!) because she was tagging along with a group of friends – and aren’t we glad she made that snap decision!

In the second sneak peek video we find out just what Anna Paquin thinks of having to act in all the sex scenes on HBO’s True Blood:

In the final sneak peek video we find out just how brutal True Blood Season 7 is going to get! Anna discusses not only the deaths of Tara (Rutina Wesley) and Sookie’s werewolf boyfriend, Alcide (Joe Manganiello), but why HBO chooses to kill off so many of it’s much loved characters – and why they are preferable to a high body count of redshirts. And as for whether Sookie Stackhouse will survive Season 7, well, you’ll just have to watch on:

I can’t wait to watch the full interview on Monday! Let us know if you’ll be tuning in for the complete interview on Larry King Now by commenting below!

VIDEO: True Blood’s Anna Paquin Swears in Interview With Seth Meyers

July 18, 2014

And Reveals Her True Blood Trailer Left her Without Clothes:

Anna Paquin stars as Sookie Stackhouse in HBO's True BloodRecently, True Blood’s Anna Paquin (who plays the main character of Sookie Stackhouse in the HBO vampire series), sat down for a quick chat with Seth Meyers. At first, all was dandy. She had a lot to say about how sad it was to see True Blood winding up and how HBO was perhaps a little to eager to move on all the actor’s trailers after the last day of filming:

By the time we were done [shooting], um, the power had been shut off to in trailer all ready and I couldn’t find my clothes.

Turns out it was all a misunderstanding though with the trailers having their generators cut accidentally early in order to get them ready for transportation. Then she was excited to talk about what she is planning to do with her family now that True Blood has concluded.

And then Anna dropped a swear word.

When discussing the wardrobe differences between her pre- and post-babies bodies, she accidentally referred to her breasts by another name! But she was quick to gloss it all over when Seth pointed out she apologized for saying ‘baby’ instead of ‘babies’ but not for the swear word:

They’re t*ts, I have them. I’m allowed to call them that. Am I not allowed to say that on network television?… Okay, I’ve been on HBO too long.

Anna Paquin Turns into a Mermaid after True Blood!

July 17, 2014

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.

Aura recently told Allure.com.

Anna was quick to hit Twitter with her awesome new look:

 

And Stephen’s reply?

True Blood Season 7: “Everyone is Fair Game,” says Anna Paquin

July 16, 2014

Anna Paquin Talks to Huffington Post About True Blood’s Final Season:

Anna Paquin stars as Sookie Stackhouse in HBOs True Blood Season 7 Episode 3 entitled Fire in the HoleTruebie fans have already come to believe that no one is safe in HBO’s True Blood Season 7 after the recent deaths of two major characters, but now Anna Paquin (who plays Sookie Stackhouse) has confirmed this in a video interview she did recently with Huffington Post:

The first season or two people who were big characters were dying and then there was this sort of lull in the middle where if they were a big character they were probably pretty safe. And I feel, story telling wise, that gets a little safe and our show is not that and so, this year, they literally went; ‘Everyone is fair game.’ And that is, you know, a very specific choice and it keeps everyone, you know, on their toes.

Interviewer, Alyona Minkovski, was quick to jump in and point out the deaths that have occurred so far in Season 7 feel very unceremonious – especially compared to previous seasons of True Blood. Anna confirmed this but also expanded on the idea by explaining that these low key deaths are actually the point. Death is so common on True Blood – and notably more so in Season 7 – that the people of Bon Temps are becoming numb to the constant string of loss.

So when is too much death enough?

VIDEO: Alcide and Sookie Get ‘Friendly’ While Stephen Moyer Looks On!

June 20, 2014

Joe Manganiello: Sex With Sookie is Awkward With Her Husband Looking On:

Sookie Stackhouse Anna Paquin and Alcide Herveaux Joe Manganiello get cosy in HBO's True Blood Season 7With HBO’s True Blood Season 7 premiere event this week, there has been a glut of information from the stars of the show about what will happen in the final season. Access Hollywood got a chance to talk to Joe Manganiello (who plays Alcide Herveaux) about the new relationship between his character, Alcide, and Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) – and just what it’s like to be directed by Anna’s real life husband, Stephen Moyer (who also stars in True Blood as vampire Bill Compton). When asked whether this situation was awkward or not, his reply was:

Oh course it is… but Stephen and I have such a great friendship and we get along so well together that, you know, we’re professionals. And, obviously, you read that [in the script] and you go “Oh boy, here we go,” but, ah, if we didn’t get along so well together I think it probably could have been weird but it wasn’t.

Stephen Moyer actually has a different take on what it’s like to direct his wife in sex scenes with other actors:

In a funny way, I feel like — without revealing too much — it’s quite interesting for us as a couple because we’ve kind of gone to places where a lot of people don’t get to.  And we’re still here. And I think that’s good for us in a way.

he recently told Entertainment Weekly.

And what about Anna Paquin’s take on it? She also had this to say to Entertainment Weekly:

It’s not as awkward as you would think. If you were to picture the perfect day at work for your spouse, would that be it? Probably not, but this is just kind of how it’s always been. So it doesn’t feel as bizarre.

Besides this awkward and unique situation he also has time to talk about his upcoming role in Magic Mike 2 and how he keeps in shape for the show. You can view the entire interview below:

6 New Things You Didn’t Know About True Blood Season 7!

May 28, 2014

Season 7 Will be a Bloodbath:

Anna Paquin stars as Sookie Stackhouse in HBOs True Blood Season 7With less than a month to go until HBO’s True Blood Season 7 kicks off, there is plenty of anticipation! Fans are scouring the latest teaser videos and promo posters in order to extract every last tasty morsel of information in relation to the very last season of True Blood.

Thanks to a recent on the set interview by TVGuide, there is now a whole lot more to pine over. Husband and wife True Blood actors, Stephen Moyer (who plays Bill Compton), Anna Paquin (Sookie Stackhouse) and showrunner, Brian Buckner had the following to say about True Blood Season 7:

  • Bill has to kill both a greedy human and a menacing vampire in Season 7. Who they are and whether we know either of them remains to be seen.
  • The abovementioned deaths involve a bloodbath unheard of – even for True Blood standards. The special effects involved in this gore ridden scene have been dubbed ‘Bellagio‘ (after the famous fountain in Las Vegas)
  • Season 7 will end on a more personal note according to Brian Buckner:

We’re going back to the original promise of the show: Bill and Sookie. People are going to be very surprised about the way we get there. There’s romance, sadness and resolution.

  • Nobody is safe. Nobody. With the outbreak of Hep V infected vampires encroaching on Bellefleurs (formerly Merlotte’s), fans had no doubt of this. It will probably come down to just how many of our True Blood faves will succumb.
  • Sookie cannot save everyone. Anna Paquin had this to say:

The stakes are the highest they’ve ever been. Sookie gets into situations she’s going to need help getting out of.

  • Bon Temps may be going to hell in a handbasket, but people will still be getting naked! Well, this we probably could have guessed at already, but Brian Buckner has just confirmed it for us.

SPOILER: True Blood Season 7-Will Alcide and Sookie Live Happily Ever After?

August 22, 2013

Will Alcide and Sookie Become True Blood’s Faerie Tale Romance?:

True Blood's Anna Paquin and Joe Manganiello as Sookie and Alcide

Credit: HBO.com

The Season 6 Finale of True Blood flashed forward 6 months and showed a very happy and in love, Sookie(Anna Paquin) and Alcide(Joe Manganiello). Sookie has sworn off vampires(for maybe the 100th time) so we are sure that Sookie and Alcide will live happily ever after…NOT! Though Alcide is the suitor closest to a human that Sookie has fallen for in the 6 seasons(with the exception of Sam), it makes sense that the storyline would put these two together(since Sam is no longer available).

TVline.com got an exclusive interview with True Blood Show Runner, Brian Buckner and he dished on the Season 7 Alcide/Sookie Scoop!

“The show has flirted with a Sookie and Alcide romance for years. Why was now the right time to pull the trigger on that?
In a world where almost everybody is a creature of some kind, Alcide is the most human of all of our creatures. Now, that’s not to say that it was his most human season. We all felt the same thing that the audience was feeling, which was that Alcide needed to come back to center. So it was that as much as anything else. And it was also that Sookie’s going to put her money where her mouth is and say “no more vampires.” She got into it with Warlow without knowing he was a vampire, so she was trying. But this shows growth for Sookie. I mean, I suppose he’s a hunk, so at least she’s still getting her piece. [Laughs] He’s the most normal, most human, most down-to-earth of any of her suitors. To me, with Eric gone and off on his own story going forward, I think it’s a pretty obvious triangle we’re setting up between Bill and Sookie and Alcide.”

To see the entire interview check out the link below!

I only have two issue with the Sookie/Alcide love story…Didn’t Eric glamour Alcide into never touching Sookie? Wasn’t Sookie supposed to repulse Alcide? I may have missed the un-glamour moment…What do you think Truebies? Is there a contradiction here? Number two, I love the Eric/Sookie/Bill love triangle…not sure the Alcide/Sookie/Bill triangle is going to do it for me!
