Anna Paquin is trying out a new look – this must be part of the process for the actress to say goodbye to her True Blood character, Sookie.
With the HBO series currently in it’s seventh and final season, everyone is preparing to say goodbye to their favorite characters from the show. For the actors, letting go must be a bittersweet process. Star Anna Paquin famously died her hair blonde for the role of constantly-in-trouble fairy/vampire bait Sookie Stackhouse. Paquin is a brunette in real life and dying her hair must have helped her get into the character, especially since Sookie is always in need of rescuing and being blonde added a “damsel in distress” quality to the role.
But Paquin is blonde no more. After wrapping the series, the actress made a drastic beauty transformation on Wednesday, July 16, when she dyed her hair purple with touches of turquoise and sea foam green.
The Oscar winner, 31, debuted her playful new look on Twitter, writing, “.@Auracolorist just fulfilled my teen dream of being a mermaid. @_smoyer whatcha think?”

Her True Blood costar and husband Stephen Moyer quickly replied, “@AnnaPaquin @auracolorist Wow wife… You look amazing. #sookie is no more 🙁 Long live Mrs Emery…!Xx #TrueToTheEnd #tbs7 #trueblood.”
Paquin revealed the dye job was “just for me,” to one fan asking about the dramatic change.
She isn’t the only one to dye her hair a mermaid-inspired look this summer. Actress Vanessa Hudgens sported ultra-long, wavy, blonde tresses at Coachella in April, Instagramming, “Mermaid hair!!!!” She has since added light blue streaks to the look. And Kardashian sister Kylie dyed her hair a blonde and teal as well recently.
The look is totally chic and perfect for summer, and shows everyone that you are confident and in charge of your beauty style. LOVE!
