ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Alexander Skarsgard and Joe Manganiello hinted at the supernatural mayhem to come at the fifth season premiere of "True Blood" in Los Angeles on Wednesday (May 30). The newest trailer for HBO's vampire drama is an action-packed clip revealing that vampire-human relations have broken down, and the newly-formed "bromance" of Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) and Bill (Stephen Moyer), have their work cut out for them. Sookie (Anna Paquin) remains the center of it all, even if she doesn't want to be. Season three revealed that Sookie's hidden talents were attributed to her fairy lineage, which made her less than pleased. "She said they were effing lame, actually," 29-year-old Paquin said. "She has some pretty mixed feelings about her special powers because they were also the thing that had people tormenting her and treating her poorly her entire life. Yes, there are some incredible perks that come along, like the magic fingers and stuff, but it's still pretty new for her." Paquin has been married to co-star, 42-year-old Moyer, since 2010. They are expecting their first child together in the fall. Alan Ball, creator of "True Blood," will step down as showrunner after its fifth season, and Mark Hudis, co-executive producer, will take the reins. "True Blood" premieres June 10.
