As brooding vampire Bill in HBOs brilliant True Blood hes a miserable git, but when we meet at The Soho Hotel he is livelier than a bunch of live wires in a puddle of rainwater. Maybe its because the 40-year-old Essex boy is crazy in love with co-star Anna Paquin, whom he describes as sharp, funny, talented, caring, generous and kind. He does a Cheshire cat grin and adds: Oh and shes beautiful. Then theres True Blood, a sexy, wick- edly funny adaptation of Charlaine Harriss Southern Vampire Mysteries brought to the small screen by Alan (Six Feet Under) Ball. When they said it was a vampire drama I was like, Nah, no thanks but when I read it I was amazed. It was the best pilot Id ever read. Bill has proven a star-making part for Moyer, who was born in Brentwood and took jobs on Cold Feet and Waking The Dead in the UK before going to the US. Its mighty hot in Louisiana, where True Blood is set, which may explain why the characters spend a lot of time in the altogether. Moyer laughs when I ask if this is a condition in his HBO contract. It says that in most of my contracts. Im always flicking through a script going Where do I get my kit off ? Oh yeah, there it is! Still theres much, much more to True Blood than eye-opening nudity and fangs. You can watch the show and think its just a camp, sexy romp or youll watch it and think its an interesting comment on society, says Moyer. Bills an outsider who arrives in town and is ostracised. He represents what- ever your minority is --homosexuality, whatever. That explains the huge gay following. What about fan mail? Ive had some odd things, like used knickers to plas- ters that have apparently been on fans necks, and I recently got sent a photo of a German lady lying naked next to a horse. He does a fang-less grin. I have no idea why. SIMON BUTTON stephen Moyer True Blood is out on DVD next week.
