It’s been 10 years since „True Blood“ aired on TV and became a smash hit.
Based on the „Southern Vampire Mysteries“ book series by Charlaine Harris, the show followed Sookie, a human with telepathy, in her small town of Bon Temps, Louisiana. It was set after a time in which synthetic blood was created and allowed for vampires to co-exist with humans. But not everyone welcomed them with open arms, and not every vampire was willing to live peacefully.
The series was dark, violent, and provocative. It aired for seven seasons on HBO before wrapping up in 2014.
Here’s what the cast of the show has been up to in the years since.
Anna Paquin played Sookie Stackhouse — a human with fairy ancestry, which gave her the power of telepathy.
Sookie was a waitress at Merlotte’s Bar and Grill when she met her first vampire, Bill Compton. She had a romantic relationship with Bill throughout the seasons, as well as relationships with the vampire Eric and the werewolf Alcide. She always stood up for her family and friends, and learned more about her powers as the show progressed.
Paquin became the second-youngest Oscar winner in history when she won for „The Piano“ at 11 years old — her first acting role ever.
Paquin won a Golden Globe for playing Sookie.
Paquin plays Rogue in the „X-Men“ movies. She recently starred on Netflix’s „Alias Grace“ and will next appear in Martin Scorsese’s „The Irishman.“
She married her „True Blood“ co-star Stephen Moyer in 2010.
Stephen Moyer played Bill Compton, who was turned into a vampire at the end of the Civil War.
Bill fell in love with Sookie, and believed in living peacefully with humans.
Before „True Blood,“ Moyer was on „Conjugal Rites“ and in „Princess of Thieves.“
