Stephen & AnnaWe at Biting Remarks realize that our recent posts have repeatedly sung the praises of Alexander Skarsgard’s compelling performance as Eric (deservedly so), but that doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate the formidable attributes of True Blood’s star vamp, Bill Compton. So as we await next Sunday’s penultimate episode of the season with bated breath, we introduce a regular feature to this blog called “Supernatural Stats,” in which we’ll occasionally examine some personal tidbits about our favorite True Blood stars. We begin this week with a few morsels about the oh-so-sexy Stephen Moyer.

Born: In Brentwood, Essex, England on October 11, 1969 (well preserved, like a true vampire!)

Personal:  Has a young son and daughter by previous relationships and is engaged to co-star Anna Paquin (but you knew that already, didn’t you?)

Career Notes: Cut his teeth with stage roles and TV appearances in his native England; Played the title role in the 1997 film “Prince Valiant” opposite Katherine Heigl and had his big break in the USA Network miniseries “The Starter Wife,” which went on to a short run as a weekly series without him after he had committed to “True Blood.” His absence probably killed the show’s chances.
