Amelia wasn’t in this episode. It’s the second time in row. But I must say Ashely is still damnnnn hot. So was Bailey in lingerie, her body is hard rocking – but she really should be topless. And maybe that tweet was about that Aidlyn-Violet kiss? And as seen in the preview, Hoyt will probably kill Violet. But that scene in preview where Bailey is in lingerie and tied-up is way freaking sexy for my kinky side.
Sorry, Adam. Ashley Hinshaw looks really weird (like her head was screwed on top of an anorexic model) no thanks to drastic weight loss in order to conform with shitty L.A skin and bones diet standards.
It won’t be too far-fetched to believe that Willa story line was minimized or even sacrificed in place of Jason trying hard not to fuck Hoyt’s GF? Next week episode will probably confirm it when Willa returns and inadvertently comes between Hoyt and his girl? In Episode 9, it would be either Willa or Brigette in the buff.
True Blood Season 7: Episode #8 Preview (HBO)
Anna Helene Paquin (pronounced /ˈpækwɪn/; born July 24, 1982) is a Canadian-born New Zealand actress. Paquin’s first critically successful film was The Piano, for which she won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 1994 at the age of 11 – the second youngest winner in history. Her acting career took off almost half a decade later when she appeared in a string of successful films including She’s All That, Almost Famous and the X-Men franchise.
While in New Zealand, Paquin attended Hutt Intermediate School from 1994–95. Having begun her secondary education in Wellington at Wellington Girls’ College, she completed her high school diploma at Windward School in Los Angeles, where she moved with her mother following her parents’ divorce in 1995. She graduated from Windward School in June 2000 and completed the school’s community service requirement by working in an LA soup kitchen and at a special education center. She studied at Columbia University for one year, but has since been on a leave of absence to continue her acting career.
When The Piano was released in 1993 it was lauded by critics, won prizes at a number of film festivals, and eventually became a popular movie among a wide audience. Paquin’s debut performance in the film earned her an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress at the age of eleven, making her the second-youngest Oscar winner in history after Tatum O’Neal. The Piano was made as a small independent movie and wasn’t expected to be widely known, and Paquin and her family did not plan to continue in the acting circles. However, she was invited to the William Morris Agency, and she kept receiving offers for new roles. She systematically refused them, but she did appear in three commercials for the phone company MCI (now Verizon) in 1994. She also appeared as a voice in an audio book entitled The Magnificent Nose in 1994.
In 1996, she appeared in two movies. The first role was as young Jane in Jane Eyre. The other was a lead part in Fly Away Home playing a young girl who, after her mother dies, moves in with her father and finds solace in taking care of orphaned goslings.
As a teenager, she had roles in films including A Walk on the Moon, Amistad, Hurlyburly, She’s All That and Almost Famous.
In 2007, Paquin received an Emmy Award nomination for Supporting Actress In A Miniseries Or A Movie for her role as Elaine Goodale in HBO’s made-for-TV movie Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, based on Dee Brown’s bestseller. She also received Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award nominations in similar categories.
In 2008, Paquin appeared as waitress Sookie Stackhouse in the HBO series True Blood, her first role in a TV series. The show is based on The Southern Vampire Mysteries series of novels by Charlaine Harris, set in the fictional town of Bon Temps, LA. Paquin won a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Television Drama Series for her role in the show, and also won a Satellite Award in a similar category. She was also nominated for the same category in the 2009 Golden Globe Awards. The second season of True Blood premiered in the US in June 2009. Season three premiered in June 2010, and season 4 in June 2011.
In 2009, Paquin played Irena Sendler, a Polish woman hailed as a heroine of the Holocaust, in The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler, a CBS TV film biopic based on the book Mother of the Children of the Holocaust: The Irena Sendler Story, by Anna Mieszkowska. The film was made in Latvia, and was a Hallmark Hall of Fame presentation for the network. Paquin’s performance earned her a 2010 nomination for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Television Film.
Paquin’s film The Romantics, a romantic comedy with Josh Duhamel and Katie Holmes, was released in the US at selected theaters in September 2010.
Paquin made her stage debut in 2001 in a production of The Glory of Living at the MCC Theater. She won a 2001–2002 Theatre World Award for her performance. She has since appeared in a number of other plays, but only once outside the USA, when she appeared on the West End stage in London in a production of This is Our Youth in 2002.
Paquin with husband and True Blood costar Stephen Moyer, 2009
On August 5, 2009, it was announced that Paquin was engaged to her True Blood co-star Stephen Moyer, whom she had been dating since filming the series pilot in 2007. On August 21, 2010, Paquin and Moyer married at a private residence in Malibu, California. Through her marriage to Moyer, Paquin has a step-son, Billy, born in 2000, and a step-daughter, Lilac, born in 2002. Paquin and Moyer reside in Venice, Los Angeles.
On April 1, 2010, Paquin came out as bisexual in a public service announcement for the Give a Damn campaign as part of the True Colors Fund, an advocacy group organized by Cyndi Lauper dedicated to LGBT equality.
