Melbourne: New Zealand actress Anna Paquin has revealed that doing nude scenes is far easier than having to drink vampire blood.

Paquin, 27, who stars in the HBO series ‘True Blood’, said she was offered a choice between sugar free and sugared blood.

“I get a kick out it, but the actual blood makes me want to gag!” quoted Paquin as telling Self magazine.

“It’s kind of a sweet corn syrup, I think, with an aftertaste that’s less than pleasant after the 10th take.

“In season one, they asked me if I wanted sugar or sugar-free. I was like, ‘Sugar-free blood? Sounds great!’

“It only tastes like the latex tubes it’s coming through,” she described.
