Stephen Moyer stars as Billith in HBO's True Blood Season 6Fans of HBO’s True Blood who live in or near Toronto are in for a treat with this years Toronto International Film Festival: Stephen Moyer (who plays vampire Bill Compton) will be attending!

His latest movie is called Devil’s Knot and has been selected for inclusion in the Toronto International Film Festival 2013. This movie is based on a harrowing true story:

When three young boys were brutally murdered in the small community of West Memphis, Arkansas, in 1993, their deaths led to shock and outrage in this tightly knit religious town. It wasn’t long before three teenagers were arrested, tried, and sentenced — two of them to life imprisonment and one to death — despite the fact that they all claimed innocence. This story of wrongful conviction roiled the American justice system, brought a number of prominent movie stars and rock musicians to the defence of the three young men, and resulted in a trilogy of documentaries.
