'I think it would be safe to assume that what we thought was Bill is no longer Bill,' so the off-screen husband of Anna Paquin says of his character.
Stephen Moyer has weighed in on what happened to his character Bill in the season 5 finale of "True Blood", where he reemerged as a bloody version of himself after drinking Lilith's vial. Speaking to TVLine, the actor admits he has got the feelings that Bill will be the one who spreads terror in Bon Temps in the upcoming chapter.
"I haven't seen anything for next season so I have no idea, but yes," he says with a laugh when responding to a speculation that Bill will be a bigger villain in season 6. "I think it would be safe to assume that what we thought was Bill is no longer Bill."
Asked if that means Bill's presence may threaten his former love interest Sookie, Moyer doesn't rule out the possibility. "If that's dramatically compelling and fun and great to watch, then so be it. That's awesome," the English hunk coyly says.
Describing the filming of the bloody episode, he claims, "It was three very intense weeks." He further gushes, "We're very lucky on our show because we get to shoot like 20, 25-day episodes, which I don't think anybody else on television gets to do."
On what he tried to depict the moment Bill got his new form, Moyer who is married to his co-star Anna Paquin shares, "One of the things I wanted to do was show fear in Bill's eyes." He explains, "Show that he's absolutely clear that what he's doing is the right thing until it starts to happen, and then we see the vulnerability in him of, 'F**k, what have I done?' And that was something I hope comes across. We [wanted] to freakin' terrify the audience."
The August 26 outing marks the last time Alan Ball served as showrunner for the HBO series. Speaking of his successor Mark Hudis, the show's creator has nothing but praises. "He knows what he's doing, he's run shows before, he's been a writer-producer on this show for two seasons and has written and produced some really excellent episodes," Ball said in an online chat with fans on Monday. "I'm just asking him and the writing staff to keep making True Blood ... True Blood."
