Read the recap. True Blood showrunner Brian Buckner has done some post-finale reading and knows fans have questions. During a conference call with reporters, he answered some of them. We felt like it was irrelevant, honestly, who Sookie wound up with. I mean, we basically cast the man with the best arms from our stunt crew. To maintain allegorical correctness across the board with 20 characters is sometimes impossible. And the truth is, there was a version of this finale that I pitched to HBO earlier this year, before we got started in production, where we tried to be very postmodern and had Sookie give away her powers. That felt real wrong. And I eventually came around to the point of view that it was wrong. She has felt inflicted but also empowered with her power.

She completed a year at Columbia University , before leaving to focus on her acting career. As a child, she played the role of Flora McGrath in Jane Campion ‘s romantic drama film The Piano , despite having had little acting experience. For her performance, she garnered critical acclaim and received the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress at the age of 11, making her the second-youngest winner in Oscar history , after Tatum O’Neal. She played mutant superheroine Rogue in multiple films of the X-Men franchise — and was nominated for a Saturn Award for her performance in the first installment.
Paquin has two older siblings: Andrew born , a director, and Katya born ,   whose partner is the Green Party of New Zealand ‘s former co-leader Russel Norman. Her musical childhood hobbies in New Zealand included playing the viola , cello and piano. She also participated in gymnastics , ballet , swimming and downhill skiing , though she did not have any hobbies related to acting. Having begun her secondary education in Wellington at Wellington Girls’ College , she completed her high school diploma at Windward School in Los Angeles, after moving to the U.
She studied at Columbia University for one year but dropped out to continue her acting career. Director Jane Campion was looking for a little girl to play a main role in The Piano , set to film in New Zealand, and a newspaper advertisement was run announcing an open audition. Paquin’s sister read the ad and went to try out with a friend; this inspired Paquin to audition.
When Campion met Paquin—whose only acting experience had been as a skunk in a school play—she was very impressed with the nine-year-old’s performance of the monologue about Flora’s father, and she was chosen from among the candidates. When The Piano was released in it was lauded by critics, won prizes at a number of film festivals, and eventually became a popular film among a wide audience. Paquin’s debut performance in the film earned her the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress at the age of 11, making her the second-youngest Oscar winner in history, behind Tatum O’Neal.

However, regardless of whether you were Team Bill, Team Eric, Team stole Sookie’s heart and got True Blood started with a bang — or, should we say, fang. She has also frequently worked alongside real life half-sister Julia Louis Seinfeld: Which Character Should You Date, Based On Your Zodiac?
Five seasons later, the great thing about True Blood remains the show’s ability to combine campy fun, social commentary and a who’s who of the supernatural world into one deliciously good time. The best moments are the ones that combine all three elements — from meeting Eric Northman to Tara’s entrance in Season Five. Here’s to the best of True Blood. True Blood ‘s love triangle was a go from the second we saw Eric skulking in his throne at Fangtasia the night Bill first brought Sookie to meet the sheriff of Area Five.
As compared to Bill’s relatively innocuous entrance into Merlotte’s in the pilot, Eric’s debut defined everything about his character: the power he held, the reverence he demanded of everyone around him and the shameless sex he exuded of course, we’d later learn that Bill’s entrance that night was a total ruse, but that’s besides the point. There would only be a few major cracks in Eric’s facade: when his maker, Godric, met the sun in season two and in season four, when he suffered amnesia brought on by a witch’s curse.
Even though Eric retained some of the curse-induced tenderness after the spell was lifted, he was never far away from the leader we saw in Season One. Sookie’s indisputable rock was her “Gran,” Adele Stackhouse, who had raised Sookie and her brother, Jason, since their parents’ death when the two were kids. Gran had a strong will and an undeniable Southern charm, and was fiercely protective of her granddaughter.

I was like, ‘Alright, I’ve had enough. Anyway, With live-action adaptations of teeny-bopper vamper books like Twilight and The Vampire Diaries making younger girls across the globe go into fits of fangirling, it was great to see adults getting their fair share of a little blood-sucking fun adapted from the Charlaine Harris Sookie Stackhouse series. It was part camp, part murder mystery, wrapped in a fun, leathery, spankable bow. Aside from all the sex, the show actually had a solid plotline upon its induction even when you added the mind-reading waitress Sookie Stackhouse, her vampire boyfriend, Bill Compton, and her shape-shifting boss, Sam Merlotte.
The intense acting only made the show all the more fun to watch as you were either left fanning yourself from all the sexual tension or covering your eyes from the copious amounts of blood. In fact, I got so into the show, that I began reading its source material, Dead Until Dark , midway into the season. It was a bit of a racing game for me, as each episode more or less corresponded with a chapter in the mystery novel.
However, curiosity got the better of me and I would finish the book before the season finale. I was converting friends and family members and making sure they tuned in, proposing to host my own True Blood parties. Yours truly was a devoted True Blood fang banger.

Paquin also has to use tanning lotion regularly on her skin so that she has Sookie’s sunkissed skin tone. Paquin still differs physically from the book Sookie as she has brown eyes instead of blue and is noticeably slimmer than her book counterpart. The actress has stated that she wears “a good bra” when portraying Sookie so that she can live up to the book counterpart’s famously large bosom.
Anna is also required to speak in the Southern Louisiana dialect when portraying Sookie. As a telepath , Sookie must constantly cope with hearing people’s thoughts due to her being half fairy. She can hear their darkest secrets—without wanting to—and so is a little awkward around people. Her telepathy makes it very difficult for her to form relationships with people, who are uncomfortable with someone who can hear their thoughts.
