Stephen Moyer spills on provocative ‘True Blood’ sex scenes
HollywoodNews.com: Stephen Moyer has his share of interesting sex scenes as Bill Compton on HBO’s “True Blood”, and his methods for filming them are no less…unique.
“All I think about is the food after the sex scene has happened, because everybody has to starve,” says Moyer in a new interview. “If they put the sex scene after lunch, it’s a f-cking nightmare. I’m not even half joking.”
Not too out-of-character for someone playing a vampire, then. But Moyer doesn’t mirror or condone all of Bill’s behavior. “I certainly questioned episode three from Season Three [in which Bill twists Lorena’s head all the way around while having sex with her],” he admits. “There’s a very provocative sex scene and a lot of people have questioned whether it’s rape or whether it is consensual or whether it is just very physical sex. Obviously, we’ve all questioned that.”
One aspect of the show’s racy scenes that goes unquestioned is the fact that Moyer will be filming said scenes with his onscreen love interest and off-screen fiancee, Anna Paquin. “It’s a very odd thing that we do,” he allows. “We know that there are things that are going to happen which are going to be slightly odd or provocative, and we have to deal with them like any other couple would.”
A new “True Blood” episode airs tomorrow–view sneak preview clips of the ep on HBO’s official site.
