Anna Paquin talks ‘True Blood’ season 6, ‘Billith’ secrets and her relationship with Eric, Alexander Skarsgard

Creator Alan Ball is no longer at the helm as showrunner of True Blood, things are a bit scary in Bon Temps. But Anna Paquin, who plays Sookie Stackhouse, is confident that the cast and crew will find their way.

sookie-true-blood-faery anna paquin“We have an amazing writing staff,” Paquin told CBSNews.com while promoting the YouTube series “Susanna.” “It’s not that we don’t miss him at all. He’s incredibly talented. He created the world that we’re all living in now, but he kind of cut the apron strings. We’re off on our own now.”

Season 6 will deal with the fate of Bill Compton (played Paquin’s real-life husband, Stephen Moyer). Sookie’s on-again/off-again lover drank the blood of the first vampire, Lilith, in last year’s finale and was transformed into something strange — which is saying a lot in the True Blood universe.

Paquin said that the secrets behind “Billith” are too complicated and plot-driven for her to tell all without lying or explaining too much.

“We still don’t know ultimately who or what this character is,” she said.

Paquin said not to write off her relationship with Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) just yet because they “genuinely have affections for each other.”

“I don’t think it’s giving anything if I say if it involves Sookie. It’s always complicated,” she said, laughing. “That it’s not necessarily going to pan out in a way that’s easy, simple or un-traumatizing.”

True Blood airs Sundays on HBO.
