Stephen Moyer Missing Screen Time with Anna Paquin

March 3, 2010 by  

It looks like the scorching on-screen chemistry between Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer will be put on ice during Season 3.

The actors, who play Bill Compton and Sookie Stackhouse, have been filming apart this season, much to Stephen‘s chagrin. He admitted in a People Magazine interview that he misses working with his off-screen fiancée.

“We haven’t been working together that much this year and I kind of miss that. We met during the show, we met on camera, we met doing something that we love and that’s what we do.”

Now that the couple’s real-life relationship is no longer a secret, Stephen was able to open up about the hazards of dating a co-worker, especially on a show with staying power.

“… certainly to begin with when we got together, we were really concerned because it’s ridiculous to get into a relationship when there’s a possible seven years of working together. But it’s been nothing but lovely so I hope it carries on.”

He said he also misses working with the rest of the crew, who saw the sparks flying between him and Anna first hand.  The crew has  “seen every move I’ve ever made on her,” he said.

Hopefully season 3 will bring us some screen time with Bill and Sookie together but at least Stephen and Anna can see each other off-screen.

As for Stephen‘s recent title from Cosmo as being a Fun Fearless Male, Stephen stated that Anna wasn’t very surprised by his new title, “She knows a little bit about my past, so she wasn’t that surprised.”
