"I love Skarsgard " Swedish interview with Stephen Moyer

Again, we need the Swedish translator - hmm and Stephen is English, right ? (Ha)

the title of this article is "Jag älskar Skarsgård"
You can see it here:
The handy translator here :
Here is the gist of the interview :

Then Stephen Moyer talks about vampires, romance with his colleague Anna Paquin in "True blood" - and his love of Alexander Skarsgård.

He plays 175-year-old dead guy.

CADAVEROUS, with black hair and both stab teeth and a look that can kill.

Bill Compton is a vampire with "sydstatsdialekt". ( i think maybe this is "southern drawl" but i'm told it is literaly "south states dialect" )

In reality, Stephen Moyer, 38, brown hair, an infectious smile and a dialect which testify that he is true Englishman was close to giving up his Hollywood career to stay home and be the father.

He said " I had gone to the U.S. for a huge job in a TV series that was predicted to become the new "24". But then it was withdrawn by Fox -it was incredibly frustrating.

He has has enough- He was divorced because of his career. The long periods abroad had left their mark. And Stephen Moyers also had two small children in London and he wanted to be at home.

He said "I had had enough after having gone back and forth for so many years. My manager did not want me to give up because everyone in the industry knew I still had this incredible role, and now it was my chance. But I was tired of being disappointed."

But as it so often happens once its been offered you just can't say no . In Stephen Moyers case it was a role in the new HBO series "True Blood" which is about a world in the not too distant future where people live side -by -side with the vampires who are now living on the synthetic blood.

He said " I emailed a TEST video to director Alan Ball. He saw it, called back and I flew over to the U.S. the day after to see him and Anna Paquin and it became my role. Everything was decide in three days.

"It is complete nonsense"
In his new role, he also found love. But the only time Stephen Moyer is taciturn during the interview is when rumors of romance with Anna Paquin, 26

- Is it possible rumors about it?" I can not really talk about it, "he said, laughing nervously.

Love for Alexander Skarsgård, who also plays vampire

-SM says " I love him! We are very close to each other. He is extremely funny, a little crazy and dark in mind though he does not seem to be there. Anna said that her favorite moments on the recording is when we are together. It is complete nonsense and we are talking nonstop."

Moyer on ...

The second season of "True Blood":
- I am thrilled and the series has incredible potential. I usually say no to playing the same role twice, but now I see genuine forward to the second season that we start filming soon. I have already been offered several other jobs, thanks to this role, which I hoped would happen.

The new Swedish vampire film "Let the right to In":
- I have heard about the fact and that it should be pretty good. It is about a child who is a vampire, right? I really need to see it. Exciting there to be an American version, too.

On being a dad who plays a vampire:
- It is a nightmare. My son named Bill, so he thinks the series is about him. It is a pity that he can not see it, it is far too bloody. But he knows that it is about vampires and when is get home he says I am the king of all vampires.

On its role in nature:
- He is a very moral person, because of his background and how he became a vampire. He is also very sexual but diabolical in mind and is fearless on revenge on those who do wrong. The series turns up and down the stereotypes about vampires and depicts how different a vampire world could be.
