Moyer’s Last Day of Training:

Stephen Moyer as Bill @ Merlotte's

Stephen Moyer, who plays Vampire Bill on HBO‘s True Blood, is done training for the 2011 Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race.  Luckily for us, we get to hear a little about his last day.  Jillian Barberie-Reynolds (Good Day LA), a fellow competitor, interviewed the handsome Brit.

Jillian: These guys are passing, and they’re very competitive.  I kinda feel like you’re a natural at this.  Do you feel that way?


“There’s a lot of testosterone out there. It’s a dream come true.   It’s a lovely gang.  A really lovely gang.  It’s been so much fun.  I spoke to my daughter last night, and she said, ‘Daddy, you’re bound to win’.   I said, darling, everybody’s really fast. She said, ‘No no no, you’re bound to win, because you do everything illegal on the road!’”

Speaking of the upcoming fourth season of True Blood, Jillian asks how filming is going.  They are still filming, and they’ve just made it to the halfway point. Stephen shares a bit about what this season is going to be like:

“It’s gonna be pretty mad this year. It’s mad every year, but this year, it takes a whole new direction… the show is different, there’s a very different vibe this year.”

Moyer admits that, “life is great”, what with his successful career, wonderful children, and beautiful wife.  He adds that he’s grateful for being able to contribute to charity (by participating in events such as this race), and that getting photographed by paparazzi is a small price to pay for such an honor.

We admire Stephen for his generous heart, and wish him luck in the race! Tune in to the Speed channel on April 16th to watch! [Editor’s Note: And don’t miss Stephen’s contagious grin!]
