The actress says Sookie Stackhouse will shed off her clothes more often than the first season.
Anna Paquin has revealed that her character in HBO's "True Blood" will get more nude scenes in the second season. The actress who earned her first Golden Globe through the role, told E! Online "I get more naked this season than I did last season. We have a really great crew and everyone's really respectful. It's not an issue for me."
As a consequence, Paquin has to work out her exercise regime. "I work my ass off," she confessed. "I'm very careful about what I eat, and I work out a lot. My costume entails bathing suits, short-shorts and nude scenes, come on! I don't want to be perpetuating the myth that women actually do look exactly like the way they look in magazines and on television through absolutely no effort!"
But Paquin insisted that the season won't be mere sex and passion, but also "exciting and sexy and scary and engaging" that audience will be kept on the edge of the seat. "And every time you think things are going to go smoothly, something really effed up happens," she promised.
One thing that "True Blood" won't have though, is "Twilight" factor. Although both are about vampires, Paquin emphasized one difference between the series and the popular big screen flick. "They're completely different age groups that they're trying to appeal to," she explained. "It wouldn't be appropriate for teenagers to be watching our show. I wouldn't have been allowed to."
The second season bites on Sunday, June 14 at 9/8c.
