It's hard to believe it has been 10 years since the premiere of True Blood. The HBO show brought The Southern Vampire Mysteries books to life — with Sookie Stackhouse, Bill Compton, and Eric Northman being just some of the memorable characters we came to fear (and love) over the course of seven seasons.
Today, the stars of the supernatural series are still taking on roles on the big and small screen, but they will always be known as Bon Temps residents to True Blood fans. Recently, Anna Paquin revealed she would not be interested in rebooting the show, for obvious reasons.
"For starters, we killed off a lot of the characters, and some of the ensemble has passed away," she told Variety. "Going back to rediscover the chemistry of that specific moment feels unsatisfying and makes what was amazing somehow less special."
1. Anna Paquin (Sookie Stackhouse)
As the telepathic waitress at Merlotte's Bar and Grill in Bon Temps, Sookie's life gets turned upside down when she falls for vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer). Four years after the finale, Anna and Stephen are still together IRL — and are the proud parents of 5-year-old twins Charlie and Poppy. Today, you can also catch Anna on the Netflix mini-series Alias Grace and in the upcoming Scorsese drama, The Irishman.
