E! Online recently sat down with the leading man of True Blood, Stephen Moyer, to discuss the upcoming second season. The following is a short excerpt from this entertaining read:
E! Online: Is True Blood going to stay as explicitly sexual this season or will you dial that back a bit?
Stephen Moyer: The show is ridiculously f--king sexy…I think Alan Ball and the writers do very well in pushing the envelope. I think one of the things that drives me nuts about society is that you can watch hours about terrorists but you can't look at a human nipple. What the f--k is that about? Sex is part of our lives. It's part of our existence. So I kind of embrace the fact that we hit it full on the head.
E! Online: What kind of arc can we expect for Bill and Sookie this season?
Moyer: I think that they love each other more than they have loved anything ever. Speaking from Bill's point of view, she's given him reason to live again
E! Online: From your perspective as an actor, how would you characterize Bill and Eric's relationship—are they friends, enemies, coworkers or what?
Moyer: Bill just knows that's how Eric is, and that he's not going to be changing him anytime soon. Certainly in this season there is a moral hierarchy. And you understand that in the vampire world there's a very strong sense of right and wrong. There are things you do and things you don't and if you do something within the vampire world that is f--ked up and against your fellow vamp, you are going to suffer for that. I kind of like that idea that, you know, anything goes, but if you cross a line, you're going to suffer for it. Whether Eric is adhering to those vampire morals is important.
