“True Blood’s” seventh and final season is nearly halfway over, but according to Anna Paquin, the bloodshed has barely begun.
The 31-year-old starlet and cornerstone of HBO’s violent, sexy, and often silly vampire franchise visited Ora.tv’s “Larry King Now” and dished on everything from shooting fang-filled sex scenes with her husband and co-star Stephen Moyer to the murder and mayhem set to take place over series’ final six episodes.
“‘True Blood’ has a high body count. So, you know, we like to kill people; that’s how we keep it interesting. Especially people who the audience actually cares about,” Paquin told Larry King.
“If it doesn’t make us sad, it’s probably not going to make the audience sad.”
Though she wouldn’t divulge precisely who die, nor when and how, she did confirm to King that “heads are going to roll.”
The conversation then switched gears to Paquin’s real-life bedroom antics. King was curious to know whether her on-camera sex scenes with Vampire Bill, played by her hubby Moyer, ever got weird.
“I mean, not really,” she said. “Um, I mean all the stuff that we shoot … all the sex stuff is always quite sort of melodramatic, and there’s fangs, and there’s blood, and there’s all kinds of stuff … I don’t know about your bedroom, but that doesn’t happen in mine.”
