bloodybill stephen moyer season 5 ep 12 save yourself bill compton Stephen Moyer chatted to TVLine‘s Michael Ausiello about Bill’s jaw-dropping resurrection at the end of the season five finale, and what lunacy might occur in season six…

 

TVLINE | As billed, the finale featured a lot of blood.

Stephen Moyer: We didn’t skimp on the death. [Laughs] During the table read for the episode, we were all going, “Oh my f—ing God!” It was like every five seconds somebody exploded. And I know what that means to shoot an episode that has that many deaths in it. Every single time you have to replace the body with a bag of blood, which we call a ‘Goo Drop.’ The ‘Good Drop’ is something like 20 to 30 gallons of blood being smashed down on the floor. And they came up with an even better way of doing it where they jettison 15 gallons of blood into the air as 16 gallons of blood falls down onto that blood, so you get this splatter effect that goes out wide. But that takes the best part of two or three hours per hit. So when we all read that episode, we were going, “Okay, three hours, six hours, nine hours… that’s a day, that’s another day.”

TVLINE | How long did it take to shoot the episode?

Stephen Moyer: It was three very intense weeks. We’re very lucky on our show because we get to shoot like 20, 25-day episodes, which I don’t think anybody else on television gets to do.

Stephen Moyer was interviewed by Michael Ausiello for TVLine. It’s a great interview, as always with both Stephen & Michael.

TVLINE | Are you having as much fun playing Evil Bill as it seems?
You’re saying he’s evil and I’d say he thinks he’s doing the right thing. But I suppose dictators always think they’re doing the right thing. [Laughs] He’s been lost and he’s found something to grab hold of that he thinks is the right way forward… When you play a character you have to ask yourself, “Can I make sense of what’s happening here? Is this authentic?” And if you can sort of find a through line of authenticity, then you can play that beat — which might come across to somebody else as evil. [But] there were a couple of things that were tough to play, and one of those was with Deborah Ann [Woll].

scifinowaugust2012 01 218x300 true blood stephen moyer season 5 publications cover anna paquin alexander skarsgard alan ball British science fiction magazine SciFiNow has a cover feature on True Blood in this month’s issue.  Although there are interviews with Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Alexander Skarsgård and Alan Ball, they seem to be the same responses from the press conference that was held in June, so you might get a sense of déjà vu when reading this.  And since this season five is yet to air on British TV, this article looks forward at that season and doesn’t really reveal anything new to the fans who have already seen the new episodes.

Here’s some good news for UK Truebies – Season five comes to FX channel on Monday 17th October, at 10pm!
