Stephen Moyer falls off horse on True Blood set

stephenmoyerDuring a shoot on the True Blood set last night Stephen Moyer was bucked off a horse while shooting a scene for episode 2 of True Blood’s third season. According to our source Stephen was slightly injured and couldn’t complete the night’s work, in his trailer he was wrapped in ice packs.

After he had recovered from the initial pain his spirits were up again but everyone was a little shaken. Depending on how fast Stephen recovers from this unfortunate fall, they might be forced to shoot around him until he makes a full recovery.

    His horse bucked?! I’m sorry but there’s something wrong with their horse selection process to bring an animal like this to the set and put it under any actor. I grew up on a horse farm and trained horses for many years of my younger life, hence my opinion is qualified. A well-trained horse might balk or shy away from something but buck hard enough to throw the rider? No, this is a horse which has exhibited warning signs prior to this incident and shouldn’t have been used in the filming.

    Alan Ball, please call people to task for this. There is no excuse for this to have happened.

      Selle, the writer of this update may not understand the difference between falling/bucking/etc with regards to horses. You rarely hear about horses on film sets freaking out because they are so well trained and usually have a handler with them constantly.

      I just read down to the bottom and it sounds like the horse went down and STephen went with it,so he’s very lucky if his injuries were minor.

      Poor Stephen, NOT a good way to start 2010! He just got over his stupid leg injury,now another one! AB is going to make him spend the next 4 seasons sitting in a chair if he can’t stay uninjured!LOL!

      The good part of this is HORSES equal FLASHBACKS in my mind. Very exciting!

    Selle, I too have ridden and trained horses for over 30 years. Horses are animals and well trained or not animals are capable of unpredictable behaviors. This was an unfortunate accident but we don’t know the details yet. I am glad to hear Stephen will be okay and hope for a speedy recovery!

    SEND THAT BOY TO THE HOSPITAL STAT !

    I would hope that HBO (for insurance purposes) would have sent him to the hospital to get checked out by a second set of DR’s.

    I have also been riding for 40 years. These animals are unpredictable.

    I wish the Board God a speedy recovery!

    OMGoodness! Steve are you ok? If only my blood was V-enriched I’d let you “feed” off me. But instead my cholesterol is high and I’m on an antibiotic regimen. Yuck.
    I hope you feel better. I’m sending you cyber hugs and drugs (the legal ones mmmkay?) just so you can get back on your feet. XOXO
