True Blood: Sookie Stackhouse is a What?

Beware if you have not seen the latest episode of True Blood – this post contains SPOILERS!

We are admitted rabid fans of HBO’s hit vampire drama True Blood. We love the mysteries of the show, it’s what really keeps us on the edge of our seats waiting for what crazy thing is going to happen next. One of the biggest mysteries from the show that has plagued fans for ages now is: what the hell is Sookie Stackhouse?

First Sookie (Anna Paquin) was just a simple telepath, so to speak. Then she started doing increasingly weirder things now and then – like blowing white light out of her hands and knocking people across the room. Next, she had a near-death experience with a bunch of glowing, dancing babes and dire warnings about her vampire boyfriend ‘stealing her light’.

Finally, on True Blood last night, we got the answer to the question of what the hell is Sookie Stackhouse. The long-awaited revelation? Sookie Stackhouse is a fairy.

Um, what? We thought Lafayette was the fairy on True Blood… just kidding, we love Lafayette and are happy he found a cute boy toy to play with.

Really though, a fairy? If you’ve read the books, this may not come as a surprise but we’ve been careful not to read ahead of the show and spoil anything. We just can’t help but giggle at the idea of Sookie as a fairy/elf/whatever progeny. As she says on the show, that’s kind of “f**king lame.”

Give us vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters and even maenads – but fairies? True Blood just gets weirder every week and the worst part is that all too soon we’ll have to be waiting until the new season to find out where this latest reveal leads! Arggh!

“I’m Anna Paquin. I’m bisexual and I give a damn,” the True Blood hottie says in the PSA video. Paquin made the revelation on-camera at a private taping in Los Angeles for the True Colors Fund “Give a Damn” campaign. Sources at the shoot reportedly said no one knew in advance she was going to come out as bisexual for the PSA.

Other notable celebrities taking part in the Give a Damn PSA videos include Kim Kardashian, Elton John, Cynthia Nixon, Clay Aiken and Sharon and Kelly Osbourne.

Anna Paquin has never discussed her sexual orientation in the press until now. Paquin became engaged to True Blood on-screen love interest Stephen Moyer in August, 2009. No wedding date has yet been announced.

We can only hope now that Anna Paquin has come out to say she likes girls too, we might get some really delicious Sookie Stackhouse bisexual goodness on True Blood in the future. You know the fans would be all over some of that!

True Blood Stars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer Engaged

True Blood stars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer aren’t just lovers on screen. Reps for Stephen Moyer, 39, and Anna Paquin, 27, confirmed this week to People that the couple is engaged to be married.


The stars of HBO’s hit vampire series True Blood went public with their true life relationship in February. Academy Award winning actress Anna Paquin plays telepathic protagonist Sookie Stackhouse on True Blood. Stephen Moyer plays vampire Bill Compton, Sookie’s primary romantic love interest on the series.

Earlier this year, New Zealand born Paquin said doing love scenes with boyfriend Compton was easier because “you’re not having to sort of get over the ‘Wow, I’m naked with someone that I don’t even know the middle name of!'” Moyer said of Paquin that his “girl is hardcore.”

British born stud Stephen Moyer has two children from previous relationships, Billy and Lilac.
