There list of couples are those that were somehow uniquely intertwined within a film.
“True Blood” (2008)
Bill Compton and Sookie Stackhouse
The way they see it, “True Blood” is nothing more than Twilight for grown-ups. Personally, I think it’s so much more than that, but I won’t argue the point here.
As readers of Charlaine Harris’ The Sookie Stackhouse Novels know, things don’t always work out for the best for Sookie and Bill, but viewers of “True Blood,” especially the early seasons, can’t argue the red-hot chemistry this pair has on screen. It seems when Bill is around, the once awkward Sookie has immense trouble simply keeping her clothes on. Delivering one steamy scene after another, this on-screen couple (Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer) got wise and decided to tie the knot for real in a ceremony in 2010. If their home life is anything like we see in “True Blood,” I’m guess not a lot gets done around that house aside from a whole lot of “testing the springs in the coffin,” if you know what I mean (wink, wink, nudge, nudge).
Below is a trailer from Season 1, when it was all “magical.” Remember?
The popularity of True Blood has made Sookie a household name. We’ve even heard Stephen Moyer comment that he has met people with dogs named Sookie, and he’s been asked to call to them for the owners because they want to hear him say the name. Now, he may be calling to children, too since Parenting Magazine has reported that for girls, Isabella (Italian, God’s oath) and Sookie (American, unknown) took the top spots in 2011.
Parenting Magazine admits that this could be a carry-over of the vampire mania we’ve seen for the past few years thanks to Twilight and True Blood. Uh, ya think? I’d say it’s a pretty safe bet to say that the name of Sookie is directly related to True Blood. Where else could the name Sookie have come from other than the show or the books?
Unfortunately, no top spot for boy names like Bill or Eric since parents instead favored Jacob (Hebrew, supplanter) and Max (Latin, short for Maximilian, Maxwell).
In the August 12, Entertainment Weekly Sookie and Eric have made the Bullseye which documents the pop culture news that was “right on target” this week. As you can see below, Sookie and Eric are pictured with the caption that says: “True Blood’s Bon Temps woods are getting more action lately than Charlie Sheen’s house“.
In the video below, we see how much True Blood likes call to “Sookie”. No main character on television has a name that’s more fun to say out loud than True Blood’s Sookie Stackhouse, and the show knows it: That’s why the writers drop it into nearly every line. At Vulture, they created this oddly hypnotizing Sookie Stackhouse supercut, which features the many, many times on the show that someone has drawled, hissed, or stumbled over Sookie’s name. Good thing nobody has a lisp!

What is Sookie? We know that she is a telepath, but what are these new revelations we’ve seen that have been leaked in recent episodes of the show? Cultural Mob puts the facts before you to help us figure out just what Sookie really is below:
The Facts (disclosed thus far in the series—no spoiler alert if you’re caught up):
At the True Blood HBO Emmy After Party Special Stephen Moyer was asked about working with Anna Paquin, his real life fiancée, he told CNN’s Marquee Blog how much he loves getting to spend all of that extra time with her, but warned that it might not last for long. Will there be trouble for Bill and Sookie in Season 3?
“I love working with Anna–I don’t think we will be working together this season only because it’s very hard to make Bill and Sookie the couple just be Bill and Sookie the couple. Nobody wants to watch that forever–every single drama you’ve ever watched has that thing where now you’ve watched and now let’s put him over there and see how he works with her and how she works with him…so we’ll see!”
What do you think? Do you agree with Stephen? And, if not who will they “get it on” with?

Earlier this week, I posted the astrological information for the three main actors in True Blood, Stephen Moyer, Anna Paquin and Alexander Skarsgård. I thought it might be fun to also look at the horoscopes of the characters they play. I was able to find the birth dates listed in the Sookie Stackhouse books by Charlaine Harris for Bill Compton and Sookie Stackhouse. Below is their zodiac information. Wow, based on what I found, Bill and Sookie don’t seem to be well matched in terms of “Best Bed Mates”, but we all know that they are dynamite together on the show. Dare I mention that Sookie, being a Cancer, is well matched with the sign of Virgo that is Alexander Skarsgård‘s birth sign? Unfortunately, since vampire Eric Northman is over 1,000 years old, born in 1046 according to Wikipedia, and there doesn’t seem to be a specific date of birth for him, I was unable to provide his astrological information and therefore, we can’t know, astrologically speaking, whether or not he would be well suited for Sookie.

Aries Zodiac Sign – Guide To Aries Lovers
There are no half measures with Aries; they are either right into a relationship or completely uninterested. Impulsive by nature they are super-quick when it comes to falling into sexual lust. They tend to be romantic and need a lover who won’t drive them crazy because, when under emotional pressure, Aries can let the rest of their lives fall apart.
To an Aries love and sex is as necessary as drinking and eating and they can become irritable, argumentative and unwell where their sex life slows down. To often the Aries set sights on someone they know is not suitable for them and, while they might relish the resulting drama, they soon become bored as indeed, they also do, with someone who is easy to be around. Arians are exciting bed mates that are happy to take the lead and, are generally always ready for more. They are turned on by spontaneous and novel sex and, the more outrageous, the better. They tend toward sexy thrills and might have some very kinky fantasies. The Arian can be impatient and somewhat selfish. Their organism is the number one priority. They like their own space, can be instantly turned off by an over- possessive lover and, upon the withdrawal of sexual favors by a partner, swiftly turn their attention into the arms of another.
Aries erogenous areas centre on the head and face so; light finger attention to lips, cheeks and hair is a sure way to generate an amorous reaction from an Aries partner.
Best Bed Mates for the Arian: Sagittarius, Leo, Aries, Gemini & Aquarius.

Cancer Zodiac Sign – Guide To Cancer Lovers
Cancer’s are fun lovers to be around – since their humor is sophisticated and knowledgeable in the ways of humanity. They love to laugh – both at themselves as well with others – they are good providers and seem to have a magic touch where money is concerned. A sensitive, romantic, soft and gentle lover who, when hurt through love, may take considerable time to trust others. Once they feel confident however, the Cancerean can expose a wild side that is surprising in their sexual resourcefulness. They are loyal and imaginative lovers who delight in cuddling after love making – adore physical displays of affection, romantic dinner dates and communications by way of phone, cards, letter and emails etc. Since they can be moody, possessive, are often over-sensitive and require constant reassurance, they are liable to react with some jealousy where their partner displays attention to an attractive member of the opposite sex. The male Cancerean can visualize himself as the white knight or a centre of attraction among a host of beautiful women while she fantasizes as a beauty of famous disposition.

In this article on Starpulse the female leads of Twilight, Buffy, Harry Potter and True Blood are compared. Our very own Sookie is described as Strong and Independent.
Even though Luna (Harry Potter) is a shining example for young readers, a more mature example is still necessary. One can find her in Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse novels. Sookie is perhaps one of the strongest examples of a female character in literature, and one of a handful on television today. The HBO series “True Blood,” which closely follows the novels, gives Sookie’s character a fair, non-objectified, representation. Sookie is a quick witted, sharp Southern 20-something woman living in Bon Temps, Lousiana, in a world where vampires have been “outed.” While she becomes romantically involved with a vampire, she doesn’t follow his every desire and strikes out when vampires believe she is Bill Compton’s “human.” With lines like, “You cannot check me out like a library book!”, Sookie is her own woman and will protect her family and loved ones no matter what. “True Blood” also takes the novels a step further, fleshing out the character of Tara Thorton, Sookie’s best friend. By adding Tara as a strong supporting character, the show strengthens the representation of young women, as Tara matches Sookie’s wit and intelligence.
So while Bella and “Twilight” as a whole is not the best example of fiction or of female characters, it is at least somewhat more tolerable placed within the context of the narratives mentioned above. In a perfect world, Twilighters will grow up to read Sookie Stackhouse and learn that there is more to life than living purely for a vampire and the patriarchal path of the traditional female role.
