Anna Paquin of ‘True Blood’ reveals love for ‘HBO’
HollywoodNews.com: Anna Paquin has spoken about her ambition to work on HBO, the cable network behind the hit TV Show ‘True Blood,’ in which the 27-year-old plays the part of Sookie.
Talking to Venice, she said, “Before the show had come anywhere near me, I had been talking for the last few years about how I would love to get one of those shows like on HBO.
“I think the quality of their product is so high.” She added, “And as far as an acting job, you know where you’re going to be for several months out of your year.”
Describing the day she got hold of the ‘True Blood’ script, she reveals, “I read the cover letter that said ‘HBO’ and ‘Alan Ball’ [the show’s creator] and I was like, ‘Please. Yes. Thank you’.”
Paquin lives in Venice, California with her fiancé and on-screen lover Stephen Moyer. She says she worried that she might not get the part because of her looks.
“A lot of times people have no imagination when it comes to things like what you look like. Brunettes are serious girls and blondes are perky girls, that sort of thing. Thankfully Alan has an imagination.”
When it comes to any similarities between her on-screen romance and her off-screen romance with Moyer, 40, Paquin says, “There are no similarities, I mean, aside from the basic attraction.”
