True Blood is full of sex.

You'd think getting naked and shooting some of the hottest and naughtiest scenes on television would make the cast more than a tad uncomfortable.

Not so, says Anna Paquin.

"Actually, it's not really uncomfortable because we're all like kind of cozy and friends," she told me at the premiere of TB's seventh—and final—season. "It's like, 'Oh, I'll put my leg there, you put your hand there. It's OK, whatever.'"

Paquin said, "I've had sex with several cast members on the show—obviously, on camera."


Her real-life husband and co-star Stephen Moyer has even directed Paquin in sex scenes with other actors.

"It should be weird, but it's not," Paquin said. "We're a very tight family."

As our favorite vampires, fairies, shape shifters and more are getting closer to saying goodbye to Bon Temps, Moyer and Paquin plan to take some time off.

"Doing a series for this long affords you the luxury of a little time to actually stop," Moyer said. "And I've never stopped before so I'm really excited about doing nothing."

Asked to sum up the final season in three words, Joe Manganiello said, "Bloody, sexy and complete."

Paquin said, "Oh! My! God!"
