Stephen Moyer Talks About Alexander Skarsgard And Love Scenes

October 22, 2009 by  

425_trueblood_moyer_paquin_skarsgard_lc_080309Stephen Moyer was interviewed recently and answered some questions about his co-stars, Alexandar Skarsgard and Anna Paquin.

A lot of fans would love to see Sookie and Bill end up together, and in a case of life imitating art, Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin have revealed that they are destined for a happy  ending.  After meeting on the set of True Blood, and keeping their relationship secret for quite some time, the happy couple have recently announced their engagement. When asked about keeping the relationship quiet for so long, which is a very low-key, un-Hollywood move, Stephen replied:

“We wanted to make sure that it was for real before anyone else got involved. What if everyone had known and we had broken up? That could have caused a lot of bad tension on the set.”

Luckily, however, Stephen is not the jealous type, as otherwise he’d surely be getting riled up about some of the kissing scenes between his wife-to-be and their handsome co-star, Alexander Skarsgard.

When asked how he felt about the hot love scenes between Anna and Alexander, Stephen responded:

Ha, ha. I have also had hot love scenes with others so it is something we have to deal with. It is part of the job so it is ok. I am actually happy that it is with Alex since I like him so much.

Now being close friends with Alexander, he has nothing but praise for his acting, calling him brilliant, and saying:

“He is a minimalistic actor than can express an avalanche of emotions with almost nothing.”

Along with admiring the acting talent of Mr Skarsgard, he also admires the man enough to count him as one of his closest friends, saying that he is looking forward to Alexander’s impending move from Hollywood to Venice Beach, as it means they will be neighbors and can see more of each other.

An intriguing direction for the writers of True Blood could be explored by Stephen’s suggestion:

“Hopefully I will have to do a love scene with Alex at some point.”

So instead of Sookie and Bill, could fans be encouraged to hope for Bill and Eric?  It’s definitely an intriguing possibility, however we all know Stephen has a wonderful sense of humor.

    Yes, that is what I admire about Stephen Moyer. Not once, in any interview (and he has done many!) has he dished on anyone! He is full of compliments on each of the cast – whether regular or guest. He is so gracious. I don’t understand why people ‘dis’ on him, especially as he is friends with Alex. I mean, they both must know the evil type of fan abuse out there – it must hurt both of them to know what goes on!

    Anyhow, we are all Team True Blood and that is what matters in the long run!

      Hi Lizzie, I agree with you as always.
      Keeping the talk positive, uplifting and supportive FOR ALL is what it is all about. We love our men, all of our men, and protect them fiercely.
      It is so sad how many of us are able to openly display our admiration for both these fine men when at the same time there are those that cannot and will not. It is such a shame.
      That these two amazing talents are so fond of each other and exude such mutual respect is a great example for others to follow. We can only hope they listen.
      As always,

    I agree the more I hear about Alexander the more I like the Viking. He is so down to earth and very humble. The time and effort he spends with this fans is even more endearing. As far as the avalanche of emotions, we all witnessed that in the I Will Rise Up Episode. The whole scenario with Sookie, Godric and Eric was one of the high points of the season. Venice Beach will be doubly blessed with two good looking True Blood men. Toasting our good looking vamps: Alex Skarsgard and Stephen Moyer.

    I have so much admiration for Stephen Moyer. What an amazing talent and all around great guy. He is always overflowing with compliments and encouragemnet for his costars.
    That he and Alex are such good friends and comfortable with each other is good to hear.
    Alex is also an amazing talent! I agree with Stephens assessment that Alex conveys so much with so little effort.
    How fortunate we are to have these two men on our True Blood team!
