The English actor, who is married to his co-star Anna Paquin, tells THR that he had something special created for him while he was working on the True Blood set.
“The modern phenomenon in terms of body hair is to groom, but that is something that maybe wouldn’t have happened thousands of years ago,” he reveals about his character’s look.
“We played that character as having a lot of hair downstairs, so the poor makeup artist had to create these mirkins, as they’re known,” he says. “And so when I had to be on set like that I made them make me a giant fur piece.”
Moyer reveals that the opening scene of season five will be unique to the series in that it’s a long, explosive opening focusing only on the characters who are attempting to escape the Vampire Authority complex.
“What I tried to do was create something that we haven’t necessarily seen before,” he says. “I wanted to make it into an action thriller. I wanted to make the camera another member of the cast.”
