'True Blood' Stars Steam Up Emmy Magazine
For the British actor, the True Blood pilot script stood heads and shoulders above everything he'd recently read. "I was blown away by it," he tells Emmy Magazine. "I said to my mum, 'This is the one.' You can watch it as purely fun, escapist bubble gum. But it also holds a mirror up to society in a clever way, and for me personally, that's when our show is at its best."

Which isn't to say that he wouldn't mind a few tweaks to the show. "I do enjoy Bill's brooding menace, but I wouldn't mind if they gave me a tap dance to do every now and again."
