After seven years on True Blood, show star Stephen Moyer (Bill Compton) is bound to have tons of behind the scenes photos to share. In honor of the start of the seventh and final season beginning this Sunday, June 22, Stephen gave several never before seen snaps to Entertainment Weekly, fitting since he and his True Blood co-star/wife are on the cover of the mag’s June 27th issue.
To be honest, all of these photos are pretty great, but we’ll pull out some highlights for you in case you don’t feel like looking through all forty of ‘em. The photo collection actually starts off on a solid note with a snap of Stephen and his dreamy co-star Alexander Skarsgard (Eric Northman) wearing hilarious t-shirts. Stephen’s shirt says, “I like my bitches blonde,” while Alex’s tee reads, “Bill’s bitch.” Oh you two, what will we do without your antics next year?!
Another fave photo is No. 6, in which Stephen poses alongside co-star Sam Trammell (Sam Merlotte). Stephen seems to have shaving cream on the lower half of his face, while Sam’s face is covered in fake blood. It’s vamps vs. supes all over again!
As can be expected, Stephen’s collection of pictures also features several photos with his now-wife Anna Paquin (Sookie Stackhouse), whom he first met on the set of the HBO show. The snap we like most of the duo actually doesn’t feature either of them, but photo No. 40 does show Anna’s director’s chair complete with a humorous edit. Instead of reading “Anna Paquin,” someone covered up the “Anna” and wrote “Mr.” on a piece of duct tape over it, so instead of saying “Anna Paquin,” the chair says “Mr. Paquin.”
We bet Stephen is used to being a leading man, but on the True Blood set it looks like his lady love is in charge!
