What Do Daniel Gillies and Anna Paquin Have in Common? You’ll Never Guess!

The funny thing about Hollywood is that everyone knows everyone and you can find the tiniest thing that can connect celebs to each other. And with the current fascination with vampires, we love each and every show centered around the fangtastic creatures — everything from The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, and even True Blood.

You might be shocked to hear that Daniel Gillies (Elijah Mikaelson on The Originals) and Anna Paquin (Sookie Stackhouse on True Blood) have one surprising thing in common. If you’re thinking that they both play vampires, you’re making a rookie mistake. Everyone knows that while Elijah is one of the Original vampires, Sookie is nothing more than a human/fairy hybrid — which means the character has more in common with Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan), who is a vampire/werewolf hybrid.

While both of these characters are superbly portrayed by their respective thespians, there must be something in the water up in Winnipeg, because both of these Canadians are mind-blowing in what they do. And with Canada being such a big place, we’re surprised to learn that they’re from the same city. We think Liz Lemon said it best: “I want to go to there.”

Are you surprised to hear what Anna and Daniel have in common? Hit the comments and let us know!
