Stephen Moyer lists out the perks of working with wife Anna Paquin: ‘we know each other inside out’

Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin’s days of playing star crossed vampire on True Blood are long gone, but working together is still their favourite thing.

“Perks are easy. We know each other inside out,” said Stephen in a conversation with Us Weekly recently, while speaking about the benefits of working with Anna on A Bit of Light. “We’ve worked together for many, many years as actors and as producers.”

Stephen, who recently directed the new film, which is an adaption from Rebecca Callard’s screenplay, said there is a “shorthand” with Anna on set.

“There [are] often moments where I’ll look across at her and she’ll just go, ‘I’ll go in again’,” he explained. “I have the luxury of knowing that I can leave her to it because [she’s] very good at working out what she wants to change.”

Anna and Stephen met while playing Sookie Stackhouse and Bill Compton, respectively, on True Blood, which ran successfully on HBO from 2008 to 2014. The pair tied the knot in 2010 and welcomed their twin son and daughter two years later.
