‘True Blood’ Vamp Stephen Moyer Wants You To Get Excited About Recycling

True Blood’s Stephen Moyer may play a vampire with a thirst for the red stuff, but in real life the 40-year-old says its going green that we should be getting excited about.

Moyer recently sat down with the New Zealand Herald to talk about his new network mini-series Ice — which takes place in the year 2020 as the world is being ravaged by the effects of climate change and the dawn of a new ice age. Picture New York City being threatened by massive icebergs and you get the picture. Here are some highlights from the interview:

Has playing this part altered your views of climate change at all?
I’ve been aware of it for quite a long time. Once you’ve got children you start thinking about what they’re going to live with, and their children once you’ve gone, and so I suppose, if anything, it’s just cemented my views in looking after everything.

Vampire Myths: How the Big 3 Stack Up

From BuzzSugar

New Moon is steadily approaching amid a vampire trend that's hotter than ever. In addition to the Twilight gang, The Vampire Diaries keeps getting better, and True Blood just wrapped its second amazing season.

I love all three, and have been thinking lately about how they each regard classic vampire mythology, from garlic, to crucifixes, to vampire transitions. Take a look at how they compare. HERE

Q&A: True Blood's Lafayette speaks!

From Digital Spy

Yesterday we checked in with Sam Trammell and today we'reharassing having a nice chat with yet another star of True Blood. Step forward Nelsan Ellis, who plays Bon Temps' flamboyant and feisty chef-cum-dodgy-dealer Lafayette. Armed with our patented True Blood season three scooping devices, we caught up with Nelsan at the recent MCM Expoconvention in London to find out what we could.

Are you hoping Lafayette has a bigger role in season three? He seemed to be a bit on the backburner in season two...
"Yeah, I was! In the book, you had this whole world of Vampire Russell, the King of Mississippi, and I'm hoping I could be in that world. You know, Vampire Russell is gay too, so... hopefully they'll put me in there. But yeah, I was a little bit slighted being on the backburner this season."

Is there any chance of a love interest for Lafayette?
"Yes, there's talk. I don't want a love interest though, because I think Lafayette doesn't have time! He has his businesses to deal with. Plus, it would take a special creature to pin him down."

What about Eric? He's been having sexual dreams about him and that would be a hot story!
"Hahahah! I would love for Eric and Lafayette to get their thing on!"

True Blood: Killer Accessories

Killer Accessories

When jewelry designer Udi Behr created a collection inspired by 'True Blood,' he wanted to keep the line vampire-friendly, which meant a certain shiny metal was to be avoided ... But as his work progressed, he realized a compromise was in order: "The rings are silver, and the earrings are silver. But there are people who want to protect themselves from vampires, too. Not all vampires are great. But, on a serious note, it's hard to manipulate stainless steel in rings, so all the rings and earrings are silver, and all the chains are stainless steel or leather."
