Stephen Moyer Quotes
Conflict is drama, and how people deal with conflict shows you the kind of people they are.
Vampires are so old that they don't need to impress anyone anymore. They're comfortable in their own skin. It's this enigmatic strength that's very romantic and old-fashioned. I think it goes back to something of a Victorian attitude of finding a strong man who's going to look after his woman.
I was a mod when I was a kid. I'd be in Italian pencil-leg trousers with those bowling shoes you wear outside and a Fred Perry polo shirt with a V-neck sweater. It was like an Essex uniform - a very specific look.
Even if you know that what you'll say will hurt a woman's feelings, I've learned that it's better to be truthful with her than it is to cover up. Ultimate honesty is what a relationship is really about.
I often think a lot of women's attraction to vampires is based on the fact that vampires come from centuries ago, from eras of chivalry and courtly virtues.
I think half of what a trainer does is make you feel shame if you don't show up.
Cardio is the devil.
I'm not a very violent dude, and if something can be settled without any physicality, I'm always in favor of that. But if somebody comes near my kids, the atavistic crazy lion comes out.
Film and theater are about misdirection and making the audience see something. I find it interesting. One of the things we do in 'True Blood' is shoot all of our stunts in camera. Instead of doing some kind of visual effect, we try to make it happen.
The interesting thing about 'True Blood' is that its appeal is not contained to teenage girls. I get stopped in the street and questioned by 70-year-old men whose wives and daughters are making Bloody Marys and throwing 'True Blood' parties.
It's so funny when you're actually directing because things start popping that you don't expect to pop, and something that you think is going to pop, maybe doesn't quite have the impetus that you thought it might.
In London I had pear trees in my back garden, so I'd make my own pear and green tomato chutney.
I used to be an atheist, but I've chilled out a bit on that.
There are lots of procedural shows that I love, but I never really wanted to be a doctor on 'E.R.' - which I'm just picking as an example - or be on a crime procedural.
I think there are worse things for a teen to be enraptured with than 'Twilight.'
I love - oh God, I shouldn't say this - I'm really good at bringing orchids back from the dead.
I am lazy.
HBO Go is a fantastic way to spend your time.
I didn't want to do film or commercials or television.
I love my kids beyond anything.
I started a theater company when I was 17.
I was the classic liberal, left-wing, 'Theater is going to change the world' kind of person. You know, very, very boring.
I'm an English boy. I played a lot of sports growing up, but I never had any kind of workout regimen.
My character in 'The Caller' is very normal.
I've never been somebody who wanted to read a book and then see it enacted in front of me. When I read 'Harry Potter,' I don't want to then go and see 'Harry Potter' shot frame to frame. I don't understand the point of it. Honestly, I would much rather read the book. If somebody is going to put something in front of me, I want it to be different.
