True Blood vampires may cry tears of blood, but cast members on HBO's long-running horror hit wept the real salty thing as they read the script for the show's final episode.

"It kind of snuck up on me," Anna Paquin told PEOPLE at Tuesday's premiere of the show's seventh and final season at Hollywood's Chinese Theater.

Paquin, 31, admitted she was one of several cast members who found themselves overcome by emotions during the final script run-through, but because the show is still shooting, she had more pressing matters on her mind.

"We're still working 15 hours a day, so there's not been a lot of reflection yet," she admitted. "I'm just more worried about whether or not I will know my lines tomorrow!"

There's less than 50 days to go before True Blood's seventh and final season starts and fans are licking their lips with anticipation over what happens to Sookie, Bill and the rest of Bon Temps's residents.

Season 6 left off with the the Louisiana town fighting off an invasion of crazed vampires infected with Hep V, and while it's a pretty safe bet that there will be blood in the final 10 episodes of the hit show, these first-look pics show the cast (including Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Ryan Kwanten and Joe Manganiello) looking surprisingly splatter-free.

Carrie Preston, who won at Sunday's Creative Arts Emmy Awards for her role on The Good Wife, didn't even know she was nominated until her best friend texted her.

By the time the True Blood star's publicist called to confirm the good news, the excitement had begun to kick in.

"I was saying, 'Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God' in the streets of New York, which probably made me just look like any other crazy person walking around the city."
