7 Things You Might Not Know About True Blood

Life without True Blood sucks, but here are 7 little known facts to tide you over.
1. Ian Somerhalder, who you might know from The Vampire Diaries, auditioned for Jason Stackhouse! Jason ended up being played by our very own Ryan Kwanten.

2.  The iconic intro to True Blood ended up winning an EMMY in 2009 for outstanding title design!

3.  The brooding Bill (Stephen Moyer) was born in 1835, which made him 179 in the final season. Talk about a good run!

4.  Iconic rapper Snoop Dogg was so infatuated with Sookie that he made a music video for her. There are easier ways to tell someone you have a crush, Snoop, but we’re sure Sookie was flattered.

5.  In True Blood, the vampires live off a drink called Tru Blood. Believe it or not, you can buy Tru Blood in real life… and it tastes like Fanta!

6.  Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) end up a couple in the show, but guess what? They’re actually married IRL! 

7.  In True Blood, Alexander Skarsgard plays the moody, broody vampire Eric, so imagine our surprise when we rewatched Zoolander and realised he played one of the dumbest and most adorable models ever! Orange mocha frappuccinos 4 eva.
