!!Associated Tropes:

* DyeHard/DyeingForYourArt: She is naturally a brunette, but has been a blonde since starring in ''Series/TrueBlood''.
* FakeNationality: She is [[FlyAwayHome seldom]] without one.
** Has a Southern Accent in ''X-Men'', ''True Blood'' and ''Roots''.
** Attempted an American accent as Sheeta in ''Anime/CastleInTheSky'', but the results were more of an odd mix of American/New Zealand.
** Bostonian upper-class in ''Film/FindingForrester''.
** Scottish accent in ''Film/ThePiano''.
** English accent in ''Film/JaneEyre'' and in the English dub of ''Anime/{{Steamboy}}''.
** Spanish accent as a young Queen Isabella in ''Amistad''.
** General American accent in ''Film/AlmostFamous'' and ''Film/TwentyFifthHour''.
** Averted in ''Film/FlyAwayHome'', where she got to use her (at the time) natural New Zealand accent.

* MsFanservice: Not a lot is left unseen of her during the seven seasons of ''True Blood''.
* RomanceOnTheSet: With ''Series/TrueBlood'' co-star Stephen Moyer. He played Bill Compton, Sookie's main love interest on the show for the first three seasons. The two married in 2010 and she gave birth to twins in 2012. Ironically, while most ''True Blood'' fans adore the fact that they're together, the pairing of their ''characters'' on the show (Sookie x Bill) has largely become NoYay.
