Fairy no more! 'True Blood's' Anna Paquin goes for mermaid look

So long, Sookie! Now that "True Blood" star Anna Paquin has finished filming the final season of HBO's campy vampire drama, the actress has said goodbye to her half-fairy's signature blonde locks. On Wednesday, Paquin shared her colorful mermaid-inspired look on Twitter.




Husband Stephen Moyer, who stars opposite his wife on "True Blood" as vampire Bill Compton, was quite pleased with her new look.

Wondering who "Mrs. Emery" is? Well, it's not a new role for the actress. As Moyer explained Wednesday night on "The Tonight Show," he was born Stephen Emery but had to change his last name when he learned of another actor named Stephen Emery.
