Producer of the popular vampire series "True Blood" Alan Ball and actors Alexander Skarsgard and Stephen Moyer gave an interview for the September issue of the magazine Rolling Stone.
Alan Ball: "The idea of a vampire, having no sexual partner, is absurd. For me, bloodsuckers are incredibly sexy. I cannot imagine a story about vampires, associated with abstinence. I am 53 years and I do not feel myself like senior. They cause me pain, and I think they are ignorant in matters of a sexual nature. "
Stephen Moyer: "If you remember, so to speak, the initial stage, the vampire bites a victim in the neck and holes appear in it, which was not here before. This is a unique process of defloration, hymen break, which causes bleeding from the subsequent use of virgin blood. A sharp fang piercing the skin, so sexy. I think vampires are attractive. And then, according to, Robert Pattinson is a pretty hot guy (laughs)"
Alexander Skarsgard: "I like to compare Eric's my hero, with a lion. He looks so relaxed, his heart rate, probably, 15 beats per minute, but one can never tell when he will make an attack, claws, or wide yawn."
"I like to be mystic. I do not want fans to know about me too much. It is easier to maintain confidence in them. There is a risk that when you appear on the screen, they see no Eric, and Alexander Skarsgard. Even my father (Stellan Skarsgard) I learned to keep the integrity and protect my family from outside interference - there are things about which we can speak in public, and those about which we must keep silence".
"During the filming erotic scenes, I prefer not to wear a special codpiece, it is ridiculous. If we are naked on the script, then I should be naked. I always thought so."
