Vampire Bill likes to bite Sookie’s neck both on AND off screen!

Stephen Moyer loves to get it on with his fiancée/True Blood co-star Anna Paquin — both on-screen and off-screen! “Everybody on set now gets to see what goes on behind closed doors,” Stephen confesses to REDBOOK. “We leave nothing to the imagination!”

“The crew knows we do have chemistry and are together in real life,” Stephen says. “I feel like it takes away from the nerve-racking tension that can occur when people have to watch two actors who are just getting to know each other engage in an intimate scene.”

Both on- and off-screen, Stephen knows how to use his character Bill’s charm to keep his gal intrigued. “I think it goes back to something of a Victorian attitude of finding a strong man who’s going to look after his woman,” Stephen says. “Bill represents the kind of guy who is bad and dark, but ultimately, he’ll defend you with his life if it comes to it.”

But, for Stephen, he knew from the start that it was more than lust that he felt for Anna. “When we were filming the pilot, we were the only two actors who didn’t live in Los Angeles, so we ended up going to dinner almost every night,” Stephen explains. “When we finished filming, I went to London and she went to New York, and it felt so weird not to talk to her. So we began Skyping and have been together ever since.”

Now that they’re engaged, the couple shares everything. “Our romance is based on some really great food and great restaurants and a similar taste in music,” Stephen says. “We share a lot of things. We live by the beach, and often when it’s 10 o’clock at night, we’ll walk out with the dogs and a drink and sit on the beach. It’s one of our favorite things to do.”

And Anna has totally changed Stephen’s attitude. “My default setting has always been, ‘if you have an argument, walk out the door,” Stephen admits. But, “Anna’s brilliant: She won’t let me walk away. Instead, we talk and we try to get things out in the open. The main thing Anna has taught me is absolute transparency and honesty and truth.”

I think its GREAT You are able to talk it out and just not run for the door. I just got engaged last year, And Men tend to just want to say F it. But C-mon your not as young as you used to be and you are about to lose the best thing you probably ever had (someone who is willing to talk). Not to say that i Havent just walked out myself but that was the younger me. I think Stephen And ANNA are such a cute couple and if you let all the hollywood hype get in the way of real love your a TrueIdiot! Good Luck To you Both And God Bless you children!
