Steve is pictured here with Ashley Walters as they work the night shift on the set of Safe House on August 22nd. Filming has been taking place in Bidston, England lately, and as you can see, the land under the overpass has been turned into a campsite.
Funny enough, after filming was finished for the night, passersby became concerned by the 12 tents in the area thinking travelers had taken up residence. Security guards put their worries at ease when they explained about the filming for Safe House.
We would like to wish Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin, aka Mr. and Mrs. Emery, a very happy 6th wedding anniversary! We wish them a lifetime filled with love, health, happiness, and prosperity. And here’s to a fantastic future for our favourite couple. Cheers!
All the fans in Stevedom know the importance of food in Steve’s life, and with the filming of Safe House in it’s infancy this year, Steve must have wondered if his stomach would be satisfied. We’re guessing it must have been, since it’s pending delivery gave us a rare full face selfie of Steve. All we’ve got to say about this great photo is … Feed the Man!
Yesterday, Steve mentioned having to attend a table read and it looks like he not only found the table, but also the cast he needed to read with. Hopefully, we’ll see more photos shared on social media as Steve gets to know his new family at Safe House. It’s certainly nice to see Steve back to work and doing it the way he always seems to do it … with a smile on his face.
This morning, we shared information on Steve’s new series, Safe House. But, it’s become clear this afternoon, Steve won’t be just a regular guest on ITV’s Safe House this year, but has replaced the lead actor on the show. Woo Hoo for all you Brits and everyone else that receives ITV.
Steve is taking over the spot played by Dr. Who’s, Christopher Eccleston, and shooting has been moved from the Lake District to Wales. I suspect Mr. and Mrs. Emery are ecstatic over this change.
The show’s second season will now focus on charismatic yet impulsive ex-police officer Tom Brook (Moyer) who runs a police safe house, which stands by the edge of the sea on the rugged coastline of Anglesey, a wild and beautiful sanctuary. Many years before the events depicted in season two, Brooks had investigated a series of abductions perpetrated by an assailant known as ‘The Crow’. On hearing of a crime bearing the same hallmarks, Tom immediately goes to the crime scene, revealing to the police that he believes ‘The Crow’ is active again.

This is an interesting article about the conception of Shots Fired and the direction it’s taking. It could be a fascinating second season for Shots Fired if they also touch on the retaliatory murders of police officers that didn’t come about until after Shots Fired had finished approving scripts and started filming. No matter the direction the new FOX series takes after the first season, it should be a compelling watch.
“Shots Fired” was set in motion after the 2014 shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. Fox Television Group chairman-CEO Dana Walden was struck by the issues and emotions unleashed after the Ferguson killing. She asked Imagine TV chief Brian Grazer to develop a project that dealt squarely with the culturally divisive topic for which there are no easy answers.
The string of police-involved deaths of African-American men have occurred in recent months ensures that “Shots Fired” will command attention when it premieres next spring. Fox is giving it a prime showcase in the Wednesday 8 p.m. time slot paired with its smash hit “Empire.”
The rise of the Black Lives Matter movement and the cultural tension surrounding police shootings has “heightened my commitment to that show,” Walden told Variety on Monday during Fox’s portion of the Television Critics Association press tour at the Beverly Hilton.
Walden’s hope is that “Shots Fired” will be a compelling dramatic thriller that can also help drive a larger cultural conversation. Episodes of the show have been screened for members of various organizations, including the National Association of Black Journalists, with generally positive reactions. (Because it is a midseason debut, “Shots Fired” will be unveiled to critics at the January TCA tour).

How sneaky is Steve? I thought I was reading just a simple post of Steve’s when he slips in at the end he’s doing a table read for a new project. I can almost feel the excitement bursting around the globe from all of Steve’s fans.
Could the new project Steve’s mentioning be ITV’s “Safe House”? The first series of Safe House began broadcasting in April 2015, and following successful viewing figures, a second series has been commissioned for broadcast in 2016.
Safe House is a British crime drama, broadcast on ITV1, starring Christopher Eccleston and Marsha Thomason as the principal characters, Robert and Katy, who turn their beautiful picturesque guest house in the Lake District into a Safe House after being persuaded by one of Robert’s former colleagues.
Each series is made up of four episodes, each following a different set of guests who are forced to take refuge at the Safe House, whilst re-telling the story of how they came to arrive in the first place.
Will Steve be shacking up with Zoë Tapper at the Safe House?
Today, Just Jared may be your best friend or they just might make you very happy. We have our first candids of Steve since July 3rd, though it sure does seem longer than that. There are 14 photos of Steve arriving for a meeting in Los Angeles on July 29th.
Your guess is as good as ours what the meetings about. A new project of CASM’s or a project belonging to someone else? Maybe he’s dealing with ongoing construction changes to his and Anna’s house? Whatever it may be, who the hell really cares … we have photos! Enjoy!
… you not only find your name, but also your picture on the wall in the bathroom.
If Stephen Moyer visits the loo at Brentwood Theatre in Essex, he might be surprised to find a photo and a quote of his on the wall above the toilet … both from his time rehearsing for The Sound of Music. This little laugh was shared by Andy Robb on Twitter today, July 26th.
It looks like we jumped the gun the other day when we said Steve must have wrapped up his shooting on Shots Fired when he went on holidays to Montana. But, unlike previous years, it looks like he took his vacation beforehand. Steve shared a photo on Twitter of himself and Sanaa Lathan after an all nighter that ended the first season of shooting Steve’s new television series, Shots Fired.
We planned to write our own Happy Birthday to Anna post, but Steve’s photo of Anna is quite lovely indeed, so why try to outdo it? We do wish Anna another year filled with happiness, health and love.
Happy Birthday, Anna!
… and his favorite horse, Chance.
It’s always a sad time when you have to head home after an enjoyable and fun holiday, even more so when you must leave a new friend … in Steve’s case it’s both.
On 7/24, Steve shared photos of himself and his new dude ranch friend, Chance. No worries, Steve, until you and Chance meet again next year.
It looks like it’s a wrap on the set of Shots Fired! Every year when Steve is stateside and he’s wrapped a season of work, he makes his annual trip north to Montana, and this year is no exception. Once again, we can consider ourselves some lucky lucky fans, as Steve’s taken at least one beautiful photo of himself surrounded by the awesomeness that is Montana.
