Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer’s Relaxing Relationship

Easy on the Eyes, Easy on the Crew

Anna & Stephen True Blood pilotAnna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, who play Sookie & Bill on HBO‘s True Blood, are in a relationship on the show… but any Truebie worth their salt knows that they’re also together in real life.  The couple married in August 2010, and they have True Blood to thank for that.  They met during auditions, and have been inseparable ever since.

What’s it like to film love scenes with your significant other?  Obviously, it’s a breeze for Paquin and Moyer, but the added benefit?  According to Moyer, the crew are also at ease.  As he puts it:

“Our love scenes actually work really well. Since the crew knows we do have chemistry and are together in real life, I feel it takes away from the nerve-wracking tension that can occur when people have to watch two actors who are just getting to know each other engage in an intimate scene.”

That’s an interesting point of view.  He may be right, but when would you feel more tension?  Watching two actors as you film them in a sterile love scene (because they’re basically strangers), or watching two actors passionately ‘get it on’ as they might at home?  I don’t know about that, Stephen.  I’d probably blush — at the very least.
