True Blood‘s Stephen Moyer was a guest on Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday night to talk about the steamy vampire show and his marriage to on-screen lover Anna Paquin.
“We met screen testing for the show. We were both single at the time, and there was just this kind of spark,” he said, adding that things really started to sizzle when filming began.
“I didn’t see her for three months, and she had gone from having dark hair to this beautiful blond, and I had gone from being blond to this dark vampire,” the actor added. “By day three or four – oh, this is going to sound so syrupy – but I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her. It was within seconds, really, and it just became a thing.”
The couple wed in August 2010 and have two children together: 3-year-old twins Charlie and Poppy.
