Anna Paquin Says Sookie and Eric Still Have “Genuine Affection” For Each Other
We love watching Anna Paquin (Sookie Stackhouse) in any acting project she undertakes. That said, we’d be lying if we didn’t say we were particularly excited when during a recent round of interviews promoting her new web-venture called Susannah, she offered up a little bit of dirt about True Blood. The future of both the show and its characters has been under scrutiny since long-time showrunner Alan Ball announced his departure for Season 6.
Still, with Alan’s farewells as the showrunner said, Anna is wistful but totally confident with the team of artists he left behind. "It's not that we don't miss him,” says Anna, “He's incredibly talented. He created the world that we're all living in now, but he kind of cut the apron strings. We're off on our own now." If the season thus far is any indication, they’re doing just fine.
Anna Paquin also dished about her character’s love life. While she couldn’t go into depth about Bill’s new complicated future after imbibing all of Lilith’s blood, she did hint at Sookie and Eric’s future. She discussed the dormant feelings between the duo, saying that there is “genuine affection there”.
That said, between an all-powerful Bill, a doe-eyed Eric, and a hot-new fairy prospect in town, it’s bound to be deliciously complicated.
