Because her name is similar to Sookie Stackhouse, a fictional character portrayed by Anna Paquin in HBO’s True Blood, people sometimes get confused when meeting Suki Waterhouse for the first time. She discussed her name in an interview with Into The Gloss.

‘I’ve always been called ‘Suki,’ but my actual first name is Alice. My boyfriend started calling me Alice because I told him that that was my name when we first met, and I called him something else, too. It was just something fun, but then I stopped and he didn’t, so he introduced me to everyone as Alice. It confuses people sometimes. You know, on True Blood the character’s name is Sookie Stackhouse, and my name is Suki Waterhouse. So, I get people saying, ‘Oh, I thought we were meeting the girl from True Blood.’ [Laughs] It’s nice having a more traditional name as an option—I can be Alice or I can be Suki.

A fictional character and protagonist of Charlaine Harris’ The Southern Vampire Mysteries book series (available at Amazon), New Zealand-Canadian actress Anna Paquin won a Golden Globe for the role of halfling (half-human, half-fairy) Sookie Stackhouse in True Blood.

In September 2015, Suki Waterhouse attended the star-studded world premiere of British-American fantasy adventure film “Pan” held at Leicester Square in London.

The then 23-year-old model stole the spotlight in a daring ensemble from Camilla and Marc as she joined her co-stars Rooney Mara and Cara Delevingne.

While Rooney and Cara both wore interesting mesh-paneled black dresses, Suki took a completely different direction in a daring white two-piece number.

Suki picked a silk top with a collar and a low-open V-shaped back, but she cleverly wore it backward, turning the designer blouse into a daring tuxedo-style top that dipped so low, it left little to the imagination.

To keep the look edgy and trendy, she paired it with culottes and gave her outfit a pop of color with a red Mark Cross bag that matched her lipstick

She wore nude-toned makeup and let her glossy hair flow in loose waves with a side parting.
