The 'True Blood' hunk was worried that he could not act again after he injured his leg during a recent visit to Italy.
"True Blood" star Stephen Moyer was terrified he had ended his career early after injuring his ankle during a recent visit to Italy. The British actor was worried he would be forced to enter into an early retirement after tripping on a sidewalk curb and ending up with a cast on his foot.
He tells Britain's Marie Claire magazine, "In Italy about three weeks ago, I injured my ankle while stepping off a curb. It was scary because you think, 'Everything's going to stop, I won't be able to earn a living'."
"If you're doing an acting job you have to sign a contract to say you won't ski, ride horses or bungee jump in case you injure yourself, but I was just stepping off a curb."
