Speaking on a panel in L.A. to fans last Thursday, Anna Paquin discussed getting naked, the newest castmembers and what’s next for the hottest (technically, coldest) of the undead.
Expect More Sookie-Eric Sex: Even if it’s just a dream, odds are we’ll be privy to some extra lovin’ between poor, duped Sookie and conniving Eric [Alexander Skarsgård]. “She drank his blood, so now she has really vivid sexual fantasies about him. I guess that’s how it works,” Anna said. “Because in season one after she drinks Bill’s [Stephen Moyer] blood, she has a moment outside of his house…She’s kind of sitting there by herself having a little touch and feel,” she reminded us.
The Queen Is Going to Shake Up Relationships: Drama is going to ensue when Queen Sophie (Evan Rachel Wood) gets involved in the next episode…especially in the sex department. When asked the identity of the queen’s sex partner(s), Anna’s lips were sealed. “I like my job,” she said coyly.
Anna Prefers Sex to Crying. (Don’t We All?): “To me, I feel more naked doing a really emotional scene than being naked in front of a bunch of people, because that’s really me,” Anna said about being vulnerable in front of the camera. “You have to trust that no one is going to judge you, or be mean, or tell you how stupid you look when you cry.”
True Blood Meets True Life in the Finale: Watch out for a special cameo from the author of the original book series, Charlaine Harris. According to Anna, now that it is no longer true to the plot of the books, Charlaine loves the suspense when she watches the show.
True Blood Isn’t Getting Any More Normal: “It’s obviously getting weirder,” admitted Anna about this season. “And it’s gonna get weirder still,” she teased.
