Stephen Moyer - Moyer And Paquin Union Helps True Blood Crew Feel At Ease

Actor STEPHEN MOYER is convinced his real-life romance with ANNA PAQUIN has made their onscreen trysts in TRUE BLOOD easier - because the crew is so relaxed filming the pair.
The stars began dating in 2007, after they shot the pilot for the vampire series, and they cemented their union by marrying last year (10).
And the Brit is sure their relationship has made shooting saucy scenes for the series an easier task for cameramen and the sound and lighting crews.
Moyer tells Britain's Celebs on Sunday magazine, "Everybody on set now gets to see what goes on behind closed doors. We leave nothing to the imagination.
"Our love scenes actually work really well. Since the crew knows we do have chemistry and are together in real life, I feel like it takes away from the nerve-wracking tension that can occur when people have to watch two actors who are just getting to know each other engage in an intimate scene."

Really Steve we dont need to know about what goes on behind closed doors. On screen fine, but its bad enough many of us already feel like we are watching your "Home movies" when we watch the show. You often talk about your and Anna's love scenes and how they work b/c you are boffing in real life. If you ever want to work with another actress and make it believable, plus you sound viking envious, it might be best to just zip it :)

Mr Moyer, is this REALLY necessary? I find it incredibly disrespectful to his wife that he feels the need to constantly air what goes on in their bedroom in the media. This isn't the first time.I also find it rather unprofessional that he would infer that Anna Paquin's scenes with actors other than him will be/are more awkward for the crew.Newsflash Stephen - you and Paquin aren't the first actors who have ever committed a sex scene to film. I'm sure the crew are professionals and they can handle it, regardless of who is involved. At any rate, I wish you'd give it a rest. I'm tired of hearing about your sex life and I'm sure your wife is tired of reading about it, too.

You two really are pathetic. Obviously it's going to be more comfortable around cast and crew members Stephen and Anna have known for a while. Which is all he's saying, where in the hell is he talking about what he and Anna do behind close doors. Jealousy will get you no where

@"Since the crew knows we do have chemistry and are together in real life, I feel like it takes away from the nerve-wracking tension that can occur when people have to watch two actors who are just getting to know each other engage in an intimate scene."So would this be why they had the to scrap a Bill/Sookie oral sex scene because the crew couldn't get the "camera angles right"? Funny, they had no problem getting the angles right for other oral scenes (Jason/Maudette, bar patrons during Maenad orgy, Pam/Yvetta, Nan/Unnamed woman). Maybe the crew isn't as comfortable with SM/AP as Mr. Moyer purports. And maybe Mr. Moyer should quit speaking for them.

*where in the hell is he talking about what he and Anna do behind close doors.*Um, that would be in this part:"Everybody on set now gets to see what goes on behind closed doors." As in - everybody on set gets to see how we have sex at home. Or didn't you read that far?*Jealousy will get you no where*Jealousy? If he were my husband, I'd be getting out the gaffer tape.

I think the crew is comfortable with sex scenes no matter who's in them. I find SM is too vocal about himself and Anna when he is referring to "Bill and Sookie". "Sookie" isn't always going to be with "Bill" and "Bill" isn't always going to be with "Sookie"So does that mean that neither "Stephen or Anna" have the acting chops to pull it off with other actors on the set and make it believable? Or is he implying that the other actors arent as believable in their own scenes b/c they aren't going at it in real life.There is life and work beyond True Blood.Let's keep the real life of SM/AP behind closed doors and save the B/S fiction for the screen.But please just stop talking about your personal life, especially the sexual content.

Mr. Moyer please be more professional and have a little more tact would you? The comments you make are very unprofessional and disrespectful to your wife. It is very distasteful to mention your real-life sex life with AP in relation to Bill/Sookie. Sometimes it is best to not stick your foot in your mouth.Professional actors perform sex scenes in front of crews and directors all the time, they are used to it, due to it being their job. Crews are very professional when watching a scene between two actors who are just getting to know each other or otherwise. It happens all the time in shows and movies, it is impossible to be romantic and really sexual when a whole crew is filming, so this statement makes no sense. I am wondering if Mr. Moyer thinks the crew won’t be comfortable with other actors on the set performing sex scenes because they are not in a relationship. I know SM/AP are a couple but I am trying to suspend belief in that they are Bill and Sookie but he constantly reminds me and everyone else that they are a couple and then I feel like I am having a look in their bedroom! Thanks Mr. Moyer
