Bye, bye Sookie! After wrapping the final season of HBO’s True Blood, star Anna Paquin made a drastic beauty transformation on Wednesday, July 16, when she dyed her formerly blonde hair purple with touches of turquoise and sea foam green. 

The Oscar winner, 31, debuted her playful new look on Twitter, writing, “.@Auracolorist just fulfilled my teen dream of being a mermaid. @_smoyer whatcha think?”

Her hubby and True Blood costar Stephen Moyer quickly replied, “@AnnaPaquin @auracolorist Wow wife... You look amazing. #sookie is no more :( Long live Mrs Emery...!Xx #TrueToTheEnd #tbs7 #trueblood.”

Paquin’s revealed the dye job was “just for me,” to one fan asking about the dramatic change.
