TRUE BLOOD STAR WANTS A GAY SEX SCENE
Mon, 23 July 2012Stephen Moyer, who plays Vampire King Bill Compton, says that he wants to be part of a gay sex scene on the hit show True Blood.
Speaking to the Advocate magazine, Moyer (42) revealed that he enjoyed his one homoerotic fantasy scene with fellow True Blood actor Sam Trammell (who plays Sam Merlotte).
"We had an awful lot of fun that day, and I happen to think Sam’s a very good-looking man... Not that that particular scene was a challenge, but anything that seems like it could be a challenge in the script is just meat for an actor. So I looked at that scene like, Oh, my God, that’s fantastic. I can’t wait to do that!"
Moyer said that he'd be especially keen to do a sex scene with his co-star Alexander Skarsgård, who plays sexy vampire Eric Northman.
"Alex and I would absolutely embrace that. Last year, when Sookie had her fantasy about the two of them with her, we even suggested it," he said.
When asked about criticism that True Blood is "too gay", Moyer replied: "Is there such a thing as too gay? We live in a very different world than we grew up in, so if people can’t embrace that aspect of our show, then that’s a shame.
"I certainly don’t think it’s specifically gay, but our show ticks a lot of boxes for a lot of people. We have an incredibly broad audience, one of the widest demographics in terms of sexuality and age groups, so obviously we’re doing something right," he said.
When it comes to his gay fan base, Moyer said that he is very pleased about it, but admitted "I may come in fourth behind Joe Manganiello, Alex Skarsgård, and Ryan Kwanten, if I’m really honest. I’m a little upset. Once upon a time I was doing very well in that area, but after Alex and Joe joined the show, I naturally went down in the pecking order."
Moyer is married to bisexual co-star Anna Paquin, who plays his love interest Sookie Stackhouse in True Blood.
Commenting on the famous fan Photoshopped 2010 Rolling Stone cover, in which Paquin was removed to make it appear as if he was holding Skarsgård instead, Moyer said: "Alex and I were both made aware of it right away. I thought it was hilarious."
