Stephen Moyer: “I’m a bacon and eggs boy!”By
In an exclusive interview with Yahoo! OMG, actor Stephen Moyer who plays Bill Compton on the hit HBO series True Blood gives us the inside scoop on what’s been happening in his life lately – aside from filming Season 5 of the vampire TV show.
As all Truebies know, Moyer is married to Anna Paquin, his co-star who play’s Sookie Stackhouse on True Blood, and the happy couple are expecting their first child together later this year. Moyer, who has two children from previous relationships, is nonetheless excited about his next child – and not in the least bit nervous about his impending fatherhood. “I love it,” says the affable British-born actor.
Moyer shares that while he and Paquin work on the same show, they don’t really talk about work when they’re home, saying that their daily conversation would sound something like, “Hello darling, how was work?”, and the response would be “Fine. Thank you. What do you want for dinner?” Moyer adds that most recently, he and Paquin have been talking about his 13-year-old arthritic dog, who he says is “an angry old man”, and will only do anything if he’s tempted with a “big pile of meat”.
When quizzed about his own eating habits, Moyer says, “I’m a bacon and eggs boy”, and that once he found out that he wouldn’t have too many sex scenes in Season 5, he “went straight back to the chocolate croissants”. Fortunately for fans, there still are scenes where Bill has his shirt off… but that means for Moyer having to get up at four in the morning to get in a run at the beach everyday before starting work. Moyer jokes that he only starts to eat lots of fruit before there’s a scene where he has to strip down, adding that if anyone sees him eating fruit for breakfast, they’ll know that he’s just a few days from having to take his shirt off on set.
The latest news is that True Blood has just been renewed for Season 6, so Moyer will likely have to be eating more fruit and doing a lot more running since one of the big draws are the sex scenes! Read the full interview with Moyer on Yahoo! OMG.
