Alan Ball, Michelle Forbes and Sam Trammell attend GLSEN Respect Awards

Alan Ball, Michelle Forbes and Sam Trammell attended the 5th Annual GLSEN Respect Awards at the Beverly Hills Hotel on October 9, 2009 in Beverly Hills.

At the gala Alan Ball confessed to that he was on to Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer from the start.
“I know that they think that 
nobody knew about it until the end of the season,” says Ball, “but I knew about it by episode two.”

Ball, sensed a connection between the stars after filming the scene where their characters first meet. “Stephen comes into the bar, and takes [Anna's] hand, [and] I 
thought, “Wow, they have chemistry!” But sometimes actors have
 chemistry when they’re acting together, but they cannot stand each 
other while off set.”

Not the case here, it turns out, of course.

“When I found out that they were dating,” Ball says, “my reaction was, ‘Uh-oh! I hope that this doesn’t blow up in our face.’ “

“But this has been happening long enough that it’s very clear that it
 is the real thing,” he says of the engaged duo. “They’re very, very happy, and I’m just
 thrilled for them.”

    Aww, nice little bit from Alan about Anna and Stephen. TB was beautifully represented by Alan, Michelle and Sam.

    Aw, Alan is so cute. I wonder if he takes credit for getting those two crazy kids together?

    Well, he might never say it out loud, but I think he does a little. I mean, if it weren’t for him, they would have never met :-)

    Ah, the second bar scene that’s my favorite scene where Sookie walk to Bill in the bar and he takes her hand……. ” May I call on you sometime” he asks. They do have such chemistry and that’s when I got hooked too and where my name comes from “callonmebill”. *melt*

    Good name choice, callonmebill–that (“may I call on you sometime?”) was the first time Bill Compton made me swoon. But not the last.

    Well to be 100 % honest the first dream sequence where Bill bares his fangs and ahem *chest* was when I first swooned, but I somewhat recovered by the 2nd bar scene to be fully seduced, FOREVER!

    I think it’s great how Alan and the cast are so supportive and complimentary about Stephen and Anna. I feel it stems from the respect Stephen and Anna showed them by not upstaging TB by revealing it too soon. I’m with Alan, they did not fool everybody, I thought I may have watch their scenes through a flame retardant screen. LOL
