>• She won an Oscar at age 11 for The Piano. Now the New Zealand native and X-Men actress, 26, plays a mortal in love with a vampire on HBO's True Blood.

HOW DO YOU PREPARE FOR YOUR SCANTILY CLAD SCENES? It's amazing how different your body looks with a good spray tan. It's self-esteem in a backwards vacuum. I work out a lot, as anyone facing a job where they're naked would!

WHAT ARE YOUR MEMORIES OF WINNING THE OSCAR? My parents did such a good job making sure I wouldn't be disappointed if I didn't win, no one told me what happens if you do. I thought, "Wow, there's a lot of people expecting me to say something!" I'm not any better at public speaking now than I was then.

WILL SOOKIE TURN INTO A VAMPIRE THIS SEASON? Do you think I would give that away? I'm a fake blonde. Fake!
