Stephen Moyer: The Advocate Interview
The Advocate’s Brandon Voss has done a delicious interview with True Blood star Stephen Moyer and, as usual, asks all the questions that we want answered!
Here are some excerpts:
he Advocate: The LGBT community has embraced True Blood from the start. Are you conscious of your own gay fans?
Stephen Moyer: I feel very at home in that world, so I’m very pleased about it, but I may come in fourth behind Joe Manganiello, Alex Skarsgård, and Ryan Kwanten, if I’m really honest. I’m a little upset. Once upon a time I was doing very well in that area, but after Alex and Joe joined the show, I naturally went down in the pecking order.
You’ve said that women occasionally ask you to bite them. Do men ever ask for a bite?
I’ve been asked to bite in West Hollywood. If the person looks clean and wholesome, I might oblige.
You’ve gotten in on the action with a fantasy sequence involving you and Sam Trammell. Was that a challenging scene?
Not at all. We had an awful lot of fun that day, and I happen to think Sam’s a very good-looking man. We also had a lot of fun lighting the scene with our shirtless stand-ins, Nate and Lenny. [Laughs] Not that that particular scene was a challenge, but anything that seems like it could be a challenge in the script is just meat for an actor. So I looked at that scene like, Oh, my God, that’s fantastic. I can’t wait to do that!
Sam’s sex dream and your imminent kiss were cut short by Sam’s phone ringing. Like many home viewers, do you secretly wish it had gone off just a little later than it did?
[Laughs] I think we’ve all had times where the alarm’s gone off or the phone’s rung earlier than you wanted it to.
