The filming of her HBO vampire drama True Blood has just wrapped for good, meaning Anna Paquin is no longer contractually obliged to be blonde. The Canadian-born Kiwi celebrated by going for basically the opposite hue, dying her hair blue, purple and turquoise.

The 31-year-old actress shared a picture of her bold new Katy Perry-esque 'do on Twitter, asking her husband and co-star Stephen Moyer what he thought of the new look.

He quickly responded with, "Wow wife... You look amazing. #sookie is no more :( Long live Mrs Emery...! Xx #TrueToTheEnd #tbs7 #trueblood."

Obviously well and truly over vampires, Paquin, who plays Sookie Stackhouse on long-running True Blood, says her new look is inspired by a mythical creature of the sea, tweeting, "Just fulfilled my teen dream of being a mermaid".

The witty Oscar winner has also opened up about how her post-baby-body required some changes in the wardrobe department on True Blood: "It turns out that pre-baby tits are, like, so much bigger than post-baby tits," she said on Late Night With Seth Meyers earlier this week. Testify! 

So she became Sookie Slightly-Less-Stacked-House (sorry, it was too easy). 

SPEAKING OF SMURF ... Nicole Richie's also sporting a full-on-blue 'do at the moment.
