Sookie and Bill: That’s Fangtastic!

So I read a while ago that “True Blood” co-stars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer are dating.

Geek fan that I am, that news makes me extremely happy. And judging by their smiles in the above photo, it makes them happy, too.

Stephen told TV Guide that he fell for her during auditions.

“It was very important to me that the cast and crew we were working with didn’t feel it was fickle, and didn’t feel it could possibly potentially encroach on their lives,” he explains. “… We didn’t want to take anything away from the show. The show is the star, not the two people having a relationship.”

The couple  is quite exotic – and no, neither of them are vampire, shapeshifter, werewolf, maenad or witch: Stephen is British; Oscar winner Anna is Canadian by birth but was raised in New Zealand. Stephen also has two children from a previous relationship.

Stephen is at least 10 years older than Anna. By comparison, his character, the vampire Bill Compton, is well over 100 years older than Anna’s character, Sookie Stackhouse. I guess age is relative…

“We are together,” says Stephen. “We’re very, very happy. She’s the best.”

Here’s Stephen’s hilarious (and charming) red carpet interview from this year’s Golden Globes (he talks about how he prepares for his nude scenes!):
