For those of you who aren’t into HBO’s latest vampire screen sensation (if not, you really oughta be), Anna Paquin plays telepathic Sookie Stackhouse who falls in love with a sexy 200 year-old vampire played by Stephen Moyer. You follow?
The lovebirds hit it off during the audition two years ago and news hit yesterday that they’re making things official.
No wedding details are available yet, but OK Magazine spotted Paquin flaunting her stunning new diamond engagement ring while walking her dog in Venice this morning.
Moyer, 39, has two children from previous relationships: a son, Billy, born in 2000, and a daughter, Lilac, born in 2002. This will be the first marriage for both.
Last month, Paquin, 27, said of her steamy love scenes with Moyer: “Obviously, if you’re already with that person then you’re not having to sort of get over the ‘Wow, I’m naked with someone that I don’t even know the middle name of!”
Anna? You are one lucky telepath.
What do you guys think of the happy couple? A match made in TV heaven or an odd couple destined to fizzle?
