Paquin Bites Into True Blood

Oscar winner Anna Paquin is making her first foray into series television as the lead in the vampire drama pilot True Blood, from Six Feet Under creator Alan Ball for HBO, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Ryan Kwanten and Sam Trammell have also been cast in the project, which Ball wrote and is set to direct and executive-produce.

Based on the Southern Vampire book series by Charlaine Harris, True Blood takes place in a world in which vampires can buy Japanese-made synthetic blood. Their integration into a small Louisiana town causes quite a stir, and a love story ensues between a vampire and Sookie Stackhouse (Paquin), an innocent waitress who can read people’s minds.

Kwanten will play the waitress’ brother. Trammell will play the owner of the restaurant where she works.

Paquin (the X-Men movies) won an Oscar in 1994 for her role in The Piano.


Comment: I don’t think I’d much care for tv show based on a genre (vampires) that’s been heavily over done in recent years except for the fact that the cutie Anna Paquin is in it. From what I know of her, she’s a girl you’d like to take home with you and make babies with. :P However, I don’t know her personally so I could be wrong. I only posted this article for the link I am providing of great images of her for all of you out there. ;) Enjoy!
