True Blood star Anna Paquin says there is a lot of prejudice against bisexual people.

The 28-year-old actress, who is married to her co-star Stephen Moyer, came out as bisexual last April when she filmed an advert for an LGBT charity.

Speaking to W magazine, she said: “Frankly no one had ever asked me about being bisexual before.

“There is a lot of prejudice against us but the more people talk about it, the less of a deal it will be.

“Who people choose to sleep with or spend their lives with shouldn’t matter, not that anyone particularly cares who I’m attracted to.”

Earlier this month, it was revealed that one of the characters in the next series of True Blood is to have a same-sex affair.

While the show already has LGBT characters, reports said the character is someone previously thought of as straight.
