Anna Paquin, who plays Sookie Stackhouse in the hit HBO vampire series, has revealed that she loves the way that the writers of the show come up with some great lines for her character. Anna adds that she feels that True Blood shows people that the best way to come through a tough situation, is to just try and laugh at it.
Paquin explained, “I love my messed-up mixed with my funny, as much as the next gal. In real life, one of the things I always find is that, if you can laugh through a situation, even if it’s incredibly sad or really hard, it’s the way through, and our show uses that in a really great way. Also it’s just really fun for someone to write you in a way that makes you sound incredibly funny.”
Anna Paquin is married to her True Blood co star Stephen Moyer, who plays the vampire Bill in the HBO show. True Blood has now been running for four seasons and has been renewed for a further season by HBO. You can catch Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer reprising their True Blood roles, when True Blood season five premieres on HBO on June 24, 2012.
