Stephen Moyer, better known as brooding True Blood vampire Bill Compton, is talking modesty socks, his notoriously gay-Photoshopped Rolling Stone cover, and his complicated bromance with costar Alexander Skarsgård’s Eric Northman. So when will Bill and Eric “just get it over with already and have angry vampire sex”?
He tells The Advocate:
I’ve been asking myself that question for a long time. 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. Of course, Bill and Eric together isn’t necessarily Sookie’s fantasy.
He also says that female fans aren’t the only ones who ask for vamp bites in public…
I’ve been asked to bite in West Hollywood. If the person looks clean and wholesome, I might oblige.
…but don’t get it twisted; he’s well aware that gay guys don’t like him as much as his arguably hunkier costars, thanks very much.
I feel very at home in that world, so I’m very pleased about it, but 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.
