Stephen Moyer talks about his chemistry with Anna Paquin

Posted by Shadaliza On July - 15 - 2010

Red Book spoke with Stephen Moyer.

Your character, Bill, just got engaged to his love Sookie, and you’re also engaged to Anna Paquin, the actress who plays Sookie, in real life. When did you know Anna was “the one”?
It was when I was away from her. When we were filming the pilot, we were the only two actors who didn’t live in Los Angeles, so we ended up going to dinner almost every night. When we finished filming, I went to London and she went to New York, and it felt so weird not to talk to her. So we began Skyping and have been together ever since!

What is your onscreen chemistry like?
Everybody on set now gets to see what goes on behind closed doors. We leave nothing to the imagination! [Laughs] But our love scenes actually work really well. Since the crew knows we do have chemistry and are together in real life, I feel like it takes away from the nerve-racking tension that can occur when people have to watch two actors who are just getting to know each other engage in an intimate scene.

Why do people love vampires so much? Any vampire tricks that real guys can use to sweep women off their feet?
Vampires are so old that they don’t need to impress anyone anymore. They’re comfortable in their own skin. It’s this enigmatic strength that’s very romantic and old-fashioned. I think it goes back to something of a Victorian attitude of finding a strong man who’s going to look after his woman. Bill represents the kind of guy who is bad and dark, but ultimately, he’ll defend you with his life if it comes to it.

How do you romance your fiancée?
Our romance is based on some really great food and great restaurants and a similar taste in music. We share a lot of things. We live by the beach, and often when it’s 10 o’clock at night, we’ll walk out with the dogs and a drink and sit on the beach. It’s one of our favorite things to do.

So what have you learned about women from Anna?
You know, men would much rather run away than talk about stuff, and my default setting has always been, If you have an argument, walk out the door. Anna’s brilliant: She won’t let me walk away. Instead, we talk and we try to get things out in the open. The main thing that Anna has taught me is absolute transparency and honesty and truth. Even if you know that what you’ll say will hurt a woman’s feelings, I’ve learned that it’s better to be truthful with her than it is to cover up. Ultimate honesty is what a relationship is really about.

Alexander Skarsgård interview from Swedish media

Posted by Lynnpd On July - 14 - 2010

Skarsgårdnews.com was kind enough to send along this scan of an interview with Alexander Skarsgård. They have had it translated and below is part of that translation:

After True Blood he no longer has to worry about paying his rent.

Alexander Skarsgård is hot. Suddenly he is “the handsome Swede” all over the place – TV, the big screen, in music videos. And he has “it”, that quality which can take him as far as possible. But the journey here hasn’t been an easy one, behind the 33 year old actor’s career lies a lot of hard work.

  • It was in 2004 that I started commuting between Sweden and USA, says Alexander. I was in a deadlock in Sweden. There were no jobs and the one’s that existed were no challenge at all, just to pay the rent. In USA the market is bigger and in 2007 I got my first big job in the mini-series “Generation Kill”. But I haven’t emigrated; I still work in Sweden when something interesting comes up.
  • You have 4 movies coming up next year which may be common in Hollywood, but at the same time you have a lead in a television series – How do you have the time?
  • It is intense, but it’s always fun to go to work so it doesn’t matter that I haven’t time for a vacation. We are a wonderful group who work on True Blood and there is a fantastic feeling on the set.
  • What does every day life look like for you now+
  • At the moment I’m in New York, but I’m soon returning to Los Angeles to start work on season 3 of True Blood. It takes between 6-7 months to record an entire season. When I’m not working on True Blood I try to find other interesting projects.

August 20th we will see a totally different side to him than we do in True Blood. That’s when Johan Kling’s (Darling) “Puss” will premiere. The role was a conscious move from his side to diversify.

  • I want a character to be a challenge. It is not much fun to play a character you’ve done 70 times before. At the moment I’m getting a lot of offers to play vampires, but I’m not interested in doing that.
  • Describe your role in Puss.
  • I play a guy from Stockholm who is interested in making a career, there’s a lot of surface and he is focused on the first impression. At the same time he’s afraid of conflicts and he keeps getting into situations which he tries to resolve by lying and by doing so he is drawn further down into a crappy situation.
  • It sounds like a fun character.
  • Yes, he’s completely spineless; it’s very fun to play him.
