True Blood's Anna Paquin to Star in HBO Miniseries Madame X

Anna Paquin Madame X

Anna Paquin is sinking her teeth into a new role.

The former True Blood actress is in talks to star in Madame X, a period miniseries at HBO.

Per our sister site Deadline, the project — based on Kate Manning’s book My Notorious Life, which was inspired by a true story — will center on Paquin’s Axie Muldoon, a wealthy woman who helps her husband build a midwife business in Victorian New York City and champions women’s reproductive rights.

Paquin will also executive-produce the miniseries, alongside True Blood co-star/real-life husband Stephen Moyer and The Brink star Jack Black.

Madame X will mark Paquin’s first TV role since ending her seven-year run as Sookie Stackhouse on the HBO vampire drama.

    So it’s not going to be a remake of the 1966 Lana Turner movie, which was a remake of the 1929 Ruth Chatterton movie.

    Is it wrong of me to assume that this was about hooker/courtesan.? Instead it is a Mary Stopes story. I am less interested, put upon women birth their 7th child, drunk dudes demanding their marital rights. I know I am pre-judging.
