Anna Paquin became a world-famous star after her role in True Blood, one of HBO’s biggest hits on television. You remember that cute girl, Sookie Stackhouse, who turned into a badass in a couple of seasons? Well, Anna’s the one who has been portraying her for all those years! True, she was doing pretty great after the role of Rogue in The X-Men, but True Blood was her true success. HBO is known for “manufacturing” global celebrities after they play in one of their shows. Take the cast of Game Of Thrones, for example, or the actors and actresses from The Wire. Alright, let’s check out some interesting facts about Anna Paquin, a beautiful, charming, modest and talented girl who knows a thing or two about how to kill (or seduce) an ugly, scary vampire :).

Both her parents are teachers and they’ve been divorced for a while now.
– Interesting fact about Anna Paquin: when she was just a kid, Anna used to claim that she’ll become either the leader of New Zealand (that’s the Prime Minister ) or just a regular lawyer. She loved gymnastics, playing the piano, the cello, the viola, ballet and swimming, among other things.
