Stephen Moyer, who plays Civil War era vampire Bill Compton on HBO’s True Blood, has revealed that he gets jealous over Anna Paquin’s on-set love talk.
Anna, who plays Sookie Stackhouse on the hit show, has some love scenes to film with co-star, Alexander Skarsgard, who plays Eric Northman.
He says that he finds it difficult to watch her spoken intimate scenes with Alexander’s character, as opposed to their raunchy sex scenes.
He said, “It could be a spoken scene, which is far more intimate than a physical love-making scene, and that’s sometimes tough to watch – just as it is for me to watch Anna do it with anybody else. But there’s an understanding that we are doing our job. We both get to read the script, so we get to talk about it before we attack those scenes.”
He also reveals that he’s happy to be able to think about the scenes through the perspective of an actor. He adds, “I think it must be incredibly difficult for couples where one partner isn’t an actor. They really don’t get you looking in someone else’s eyes and saying, ‘I love you’, or having sex or, even worse, being incredibly intimate.”
