Stephen Moyer Misses Scenes with Anna Paquin
When it comes to fianc e Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer can’t get enough of a good thing.
“We haven’t been working together that much this year and I kind of miss that,” said Moyer, whose True Blood character Bill Compton has been separated from Paquin’s Sookie Stackhouse. “We met during the show, we met on camera, we met doing something that we love and that’s what we do. And I really miss her when Bill’s been taken away.”
And it’s not just his significant other he misses … it’s the crew dynamic as well, he told reporters at Cosmopolitan’s Fun Fearless Male Awards in New York Monday night. “It’s quite fun too, when the camera’s not rolling,” he said. “I think the thing is because the crew and everybody grew up watching us, they’ve seen every move I’ve ever made on her.”
But the couple, who kept their relationship secret as long as possible, knew the pitfalls of pursuing an on-set romance. “I can imagine why it would be risky and certainly to begin with when we got together, we were really concerned because it’s ridiculous to get into a relationship when there’s a possible seven years of working together. But it’s been nothing but lovely so I hope it carries on.”
As for Paquin’s reaction to his latest title, Fun Fearless Male, said Moyer with a chuckle, “She knows a little bit about my past, so she wasn’t that surprised.” — Shruti DhalwalaJeff Kravitz/FilmMagic
