During the Television Critics Association summer press tour, Steve was interviewed by Assignment X’s Abbie Bernstein at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. In particular, Steve discussed what it was like coming on board with the Sons of Anarchy crew, his thoughts regarding Sookie’s end game on True Blood, and plans for the future with CASM. Speaking of True Blood, Steve disclosed that as a character, Milus is a lot more fun to play than Bill Compton. “Yes, I’m having a lot more fun being naughty.” We don’t know about all y’all, but we’re loving watching Milus be naughty! Some interview highlights:
AX: How is it for you coming into sort of a family business, because your executive producer/show runner/series creator Kurt Sutter and Katey Sagal, who plays the pagan mystic Annora, and executive producer/director Paris Barclay have all been working together for years already on SONS OF ANARCHY?
MOYER: They’re amazing. Me and Katey get on really well. And Paris is just a gem. I mean, he’s just such a beautiful energy to be around. And then Kurt is this amazing creative force. He’s incredible. And they’re so successful already, it’s just lovely to be in that orbit, to be honest.
AX: A TRUE BLOOD question – how would you have liked to see it end?
MOYER: I think it’s incredibly difficult to end a show and there’s absolutely no way that you’re going to be able to please everybody. My personal take on it – I feel like, for me, I would have liked not for Sookie to necessarily end up with somebody. I liked the idea of Eric always being in the background there somewhere, and that if Bill’s going to die, that she’s always being watched over somehow. That was something that I think might have been interesting – but it’s not for me to say, I’m not the writer.
AX: How is your film producing going?
MOYER: Great. Lots, lots, lots happening. But obviously, I’m in Wales. I’m hopefully going to be doing something in the new year in that regard.
AX: And what would you most like people to know about THE BASTARD EXECUTIONER?
MOYER: I’m really excited to see this modern storytelling, this golden age of television, that we’re all in, but it’s modern film making techniques brought into medieval times and I think it’s beautifully shot, really wonderfully written and really, there are excellent actors in our show and I think it’s going to be a really dark ride.
Steve shares quite a bit more about filming The Bastard Executioner, so head on over to Assignment X to read the rest of his interview.
Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin made an appearance at the AFI Fest 2015 on November 10th. Held at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, CA., the Audi Centerpiece Gala had the Emerys walking the red carpet for the premiere of Concussion.
It may be hard to believe, but this is the first time Anna and Steve have walked a red carpet together this year. A plunging neck line for Anna to accompany an almost clean shaven Steve, makes for a stunning couple.
When you’re ready to listen to this podcast get yourself a comfy seat, your choice of drinkie poo and maybe a biscuit or two and you’ll have the perfect ambiance to enjoy this podcast with Steve. Chris and Matt of The Nerdist lead Steve through a fun and lengthy discussion, over an hour, that covers so many subjects you’ll find yourself in Steve nirvana.
Steve sits down at the 5:05 mark if you’d like to jump right in. Among the many subjects covered:
- Who’s Steve’s favourite Dr. Who?
- True Blood didn’t jump the shark, it jumped the ocean.
- The differences between British and American actors.
- The dislike most countries have for Britain.
- Steve’s abilities to do accents.
- The twins.
If you haven’t followed Steve on Twitter yet, do so, as it wouldn’t be surprising to find a poll on Steve’s Twitter feed in the future.

It looks like Steve’s now clean-shaven! A photo was posted to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Official Fan Instagram of a celebration from last night. Attending Joe’s #last2weeksasasingleman party last night were Steve, Chris Bauer, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Channing Tatum, Robbie Jones, Rolland Berry, and Pee-Wee-Herman. Looks like it was a lot of fun. Joe will wed Sofia Vergara on November 22nd in Palm Beach, FL.
Stephen Moyer shared a photo on Twitter today, November 6th, that continues a lovable tradition of behind the scene photos taken on set. Started back in the early seasons of True Blood, Steve would have photos taken of himself with cast mates with their thumbs up while maintaining silly grins while still in costume .
The most recent photo addition to Steve’s ritual, “Stoopid Set Shots”, is one taken with Robert Brake, the actor that plays Baron Pryce on The Bastard Executioner.
As we reported last week, Steve’s film “Juveniles” is taking part in the American Film Market. The American Film Market began on November 4th and is running until November 11th at Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel. It’s kind of strange to see Steve now without his Milus salt-n-pepper hair!
“Juveniles” marks director Nico Sabenorio’s feature directorial debut. Sabenorio had previously filmed music videos and documentaries. Chris Miller, James C.E. Burke, Elliot Lewis Rosenblatt and Scott Disharoon are producing the film, now in post production.
Radiant Films will present new footage of the film at AFM, while CAA is handling domestic sales.
Steve plays a crime boss who is confronted by a young man (Beau Knapp) with a promising future who is attempting to avenge his father’s death.
The second official trailer has been released for Concussion. The movie, scheduled to be released on Christmas day, stars Will Smith, Stephen Moyer and other famous actors you’ll recognize once you watch. Unlike trailer #1, you’ll see Steve numerous times throughout it.
Will Smith was on the Ellen DeGenerous show today, November 5th, discussing Concussion. After the audience watched a clip from the movie, Ellen mentioned that there’s already Oscar talk surrounding this film. Now that’s exciting!
The penultimate episode is here too soon, and with just two episodes left, Kurt Sutter still has some explaining to do. With that said, I don’t think anyone reading this is ready to say goodbye to Milus Corbett or Stephen Moyer just yet.
Ventrishire encounters an old French foe as Wilkin learns new insight into his holy destiny.
While Steve was at the CBS Studio Center in Cali today to film a segment of The Talk, he had photos taken with Julie Chen, Aisha Tyler and Sharon Osbourne. The ladies were kind enough to share their photos on Twitter.
Stephen Moyer was on The Talk today, November 3rd, wearing a form fitting grey sweater that showed his hotness to the extreme. Steve was his usual entertaining self, but call me greedy, this woman wanted to look and listen for longer than the seven minutes he was allotted.
Watch. Enjoy. Comment.
We were starting to doubt the entire interview of Steve visiting Sway in the Morning would ever surface, but we kept hoping and our patience has paid off. You’ll be thrilled to know the interview isn’t just an audio like the short clip we listened to last week, but the entire video interview.
Steve discusses: drinking from the holy cup, turning down an audition to play Wolverine, his true Essex accent and much more. Enjoy!
Another gift from the world of talk shows is coming our way tomorrow, November 3rd. Steve will be appearing on the CBS show, The Talk … the name is direct and to the point, eh? Anyways, isn’t it lovely that when we think Steve’s promotional tour for TBX is done and we have to wait until who-knows-when to see Steve again (not counting TBX), we discover that Steve recorded at least one other show we didn’t expect?
The Talk airs on your local CBS station at 2PM EST, but to be safe check your local TV guide and don’t forget to set your recording device. Did we forget to say … Woo Hoo!
Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin spent the day at Twickenham Stadium in London today to watch New Zealand make history by winning the Rugby World Cup for the third time. Dressed in All Black apparel to support the All Blacks, Steve was kind enough to share before, halftime and victory photos of himself and Anna.
While at the Sirius XM Studios on Tuesday, Steve was also interviewed by The JOLT’s Larry Flick. Steve spoke in pretty great detail about The Bastard Executioner including what makes Milus Corbett tick. Even though we didn’t get a new episode of TBX this week, we’ve certainly been spoiled with Steve goodness from his few days in NYC!
