True Blood's Stephen Moyer opens up in the August issue of REDBOOK

From Redbook :
True Blood's Stephen Moyer opens up in the August issue of REDBOOK (on newsstands July 20), and in the interview he discusses his engagement to co-star Anna Paquin, their onscreen chemistry, viewers' fascination with vampires, and more. Please see below for quotes, and if any info is used,  the link to must be included.    
On his onscreen chemistry with fiancee Anna Paquin: "Everybody on set now gets to see what goes on behind closed doors. We leave nothing to the imagination! But our love scenes actually work really well. Since the crew knows we do have chemistry and are together in real life, 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.
On the moment he knew Anna Paquin was "the one": "It was when I was away from her. 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. 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!"   
On why people love vampires: "Vampires are so old that they don't need to impress anyone anymore. They're comfortable in their own skin. It's this enigmatic strength that's very romantic and old-fashioned. I think it goes back to something of a Victorian attitude of finding a strong man who's going to look after his woman. 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."
