Paquin wants normal boy for Sookie

Anna Paquin has joked she hopes her character Sookie Stackhouse won't end up with a vampire or a werewolf like Bill, Eric or Alcide on True Blood.
"None of them," she laughed, speaking before attending a special Q&A with fans in LA.
Standing next to husband Stephen Moyer, who plays vampire Bill Compton on the show, she teased she wants Sookie to find "a nice normal boy, who's not a superhero!"
Fans queued for hours to hear the cast of the hit fantasy show talk at this year's PaleyFest in Beverly Hills.
"I still constantly feel lucky to be a full-time employed actor," Anna admitted.
"I think that in itself is kind of an amazing achievement to be able to say that your full-time career is in any creative arts, let alone a show that has kept people interested for coming on four seasons and hopefully more."
Filming for Season 4 is currently under way. Anna revealed she's loved watching Sookie grow and change as a character.
"I think that's what is really exciting about doing a series," she explained. "You do get more than two and half hours in the life of that character to evolve with them.
"From Season 1, if you just think about where everyone was when we first encountered them until now, everyone has had pretty major life events and changes and it's all very exciting as an actor."
