Happy birthday, Anna Paquin! The ‘True Blood’ hottie is turning 33 today, July 24! How much is that in faerie years? Let’s help her celebrate her special day!
Anna Paquin is 33 today, July 24! Though True Blood officially ended after six years and seven seasons of bloodsucking and glamouring, we’ll always remember the iconic Sookie Stackhouse and her little Merlotte’s outfit. Anna had an amazing year, and we think that being 33 will bring even better things to come!
Anna Paquin is one of the best actresses of our time. Girl has an Oscar, and she was one of the youngest people to ever receive one! In the last year, she definitely displayed her acting prowess through the final season of True Blood (RIP), and by continuing to kick butt as X-Men mutant Rogue!
One of the best things about True Blood was knowing that Anna was acting opposite her real-life husband, Stephen Moyer, the whole time! Seriously, Sookie and Vampire Bill are living happily ever after at least somewhere. In the finale (spoilers!) we were devastated when Anna had to react to the death of her beloved vampire lover after seven seasons of on-again off-again mayhem and romance. That has to be so hard when you love someone in real life!
In the smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, Anna reprised her role as Rogue, the mutant with the fabulous hair and the power to absorb the abilities of anyone touching her skin. Though her only scene was cut from the already extremely long DOFP (big mistake!), Fox released a “Rogue Cut” that allows fans to see Anna do her thing in all her mutant glory. More of that, please.
It isn’t known yet if she’ll appear in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, but we’re crossing our fingers for more Anna. Coming up, though, she’ll be voicing a dino in the gorgeous Pixar flick The Good Dinosaur. Not exactly the same audience as True Blood, but we’ll take it!
HollywoodLifers, help us wish Anna a very happy birthday in the comments!
