Stephen Moyer Audio Interview with Phoenix FM

December 31, 2009 by  

As we reported early True Blood‘s Stephen Moyer (who portrays vampire Bill Compton) is back home in his native Essex in the UK and he took the time to do an interview with local radio station, Phoenix FM last night (Wednesday, December 30, 2009) during intermission at the performance of The Twits at the Brentwood Theatre where he is the theatre’s First Patron.

During the audio interview Stephen discusses the phenomenal success of True Blood and how much his life has changed due to its success.  He describes how he tries to fly back home to the UK as often as he can and when the show is on hiatus  he tries to fit in and juggle various projects he is involved with during that short time span.  During this past hiatus he mentions how he managed to filmed four projects, “Priest“, “Ice“, “The Caller” and “Open House” which also stars his co-star and fiance, Anna Paquin and was directed by Anna‘s brother Andrew Paquin.

He was asked he felt about all the True Blood fans donating money to help with the renovations of the Brewntwood Theatre and he stunned by response of it all. The interview was conducted in the section that was funded by the North America fans and has a wall with the bricks that holds the names of all the sponsors (both and our own individual bricks are on that wall). He mentioned some of the True Blood fan sites and stated how amazed he is at all the fund-raising that has occur on his behalf including the money that was raised for coaches (buses) to transport children to the Brentwood Theatre in order to see The TWITS which was organized by us “Tell Stephen “Happy Birthday” by Contributing to ‘Steve’s Coach Campaign!’” and was widely supported by other True Blood fan sites and fans.

The campaign was a huge success and raised £1,500 (about $2,400), which paid for three schools to have coaches to take groups of students on the field trip to Brentwood Theatre to see the production of The TWITS.

As Stephen mentioned in the interview he will be returning to Los Angeles on Sunday, January 3, 20102 and will resuming filming season 3 the next day on Monday, January 4, 2010.
