The Canadian born, New Zealand actress has been in big and little screens since she was a pre-teen when she was selected from an open casting call to for the movie “The Piano.” She won a best supporting actress Oscar for this role, and it lead the one-off actress into a life with much future success.
Paquin reentered the spotlight when she starred as Rouge in the X Men movies in 2000, but her most recent work, as Sookie Stackhouse in HBO’s True Blood, is what has this writer so excited.
It was on the set of True Blood where Paquin met her co-star (and now husband) Stephen Moyer. Yes, Sookie Stackhouse is married to Vampire Bill in real life! The couple have two kids since being married, and two children from Moyer’s previous relationship.
True Blood Season 7 starts up 6/22 on HBO – you can catch up by watching the entire season on HBO Go. (my boyfriend and I are on season 3, its a slow, but worthwhile process if you break it up pretty well)
