Anna Paquin Covers Self Magazine in Bikini
Speaking of sucking, you’ve had to drink vampire blood quite a few times on the show. Do you enjoy those messy scenes? I get a kick out of it, but the actual blood makes me want to gag! It’s some kind of sweet corn syrup, I think, with an aftertaste that’s less than pleasant after the 10th take. In season one, they asked me if I wanted sugar or sugar-free. I was, like, “Sugar-free blood? Sounds great!” Big mistake. Because then it only tastes like the latex tubes it’s coming through.
So you asked for the sweet stuff? By the next scene! I was feeding ravenously from Bill’s arm, so I drank probably a gallon. Never again.
