‘True Blood’ Stars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer Engaged
The ‘True Blood’ co-stars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer have been dating each other since the pilot episode of the drama series was filmed in 2007, and now their representatives have confirmed that the two are engaged. There haven’t been any details planned for when the couple will tie the knot.
Moyer, who is British and 39, has two children - a 9-year-old son named Billy and a 7-year-old daughter named Lilac. The two kids came from his previous relationships. Paquin is 27 years old and was born in New Zealand.
Paquin plays the part of Sookie Stackhouse in the series, while Moyer plays the part of Bill Compton. The two characters in the show are lovers as well, and Paquin recently admitted their real relationship makes it easier for them to film the nude scenes. She says that she feels fine about doing the nude scenes, but she thinks maybe she shouldn’t with the way that people ask her about it all the time.
She continued that since they are already in a relationship with each other, they don’t have to go through the initial awkwardness of being naked with someone when they don’t even know their middle name. Regardless of the scene, the better the actors know each other, the more real and open their performance can be, Paquin said. This can be applied to stunt scenes, heavily emotional scenes, as well as sex scenes, she added, but she does have a little head start in that area with her on-screen partner.
Talking about their relationship, Moyer says that it’s exciting, and it was there from the first day. There isn’t anyone else he would rather work with, he added, and they are very happy together.
