‘True Blood’ season 6: Stephen Moyer on detaching himself from Bill

When you play a character on a television show for an extended period of time, it’s almost inevitable that in some ways, you are going to feel some sort of moral attachment to them. However, this is almost impossible to do, especially if you are o a show like “True Blood” where so much of your own morality can fluctuate based on the circumstances of the surrounding world.

With all of this in mind, we do have a rather interesting comment from Stephen Moyer that speaks both to his past on the show along with his future. Speaking to TVLine, the actor explained exactly how he has separated him portrayal of the character from what the world things about him … which is probably a good thing considering that the man more or less descended into a form of evil vampire god during the finale earlier this summer:

“One has to stop worrying about how one’s character is perceived. I think we all probably had a point in the series where you did worry about the public persona of our character. But I stopped worrying about that in Season 2. That’s not to say I don’t care. What I mean is you’re going to stop playing something authentically if you’re worried about how it’s going to be perceived.”

Sadly, it is still far too early to know just how Bill’s new role in the show is going to take shape, included whether or not there are limitations to this new form and if it is possible for him to become a normal vampire (as strange as it is to say that phrase) again.

Are you looking forward to seeing evil Bill, or is a part of you somehow hoping that he is going to discover his inner humanity again? If you want to see some more explanation on what happened with Sookie and Alcide at the end of last season, you can do so by visiting the article over here.
