True Blood star Stephen Moyer has said he wants to sink his teeth into another gay sex scene in the cult television series.

The vampire actor said he had an ‘awful lot of fun’ in filming a steamy love scene with co-star Sam Trammell.

In an interview with The Advocate, Moyer said: ‘We had an awful lot of fun that day and I happen to think Sam’s a very good-looking man.’

‘Not that that particular scene was a challenge, but anything that seems like it could be a challenge in the script is just meat for an actor. So I looked at that scene like, Oh, my God, that’s fantastic. I can’t wait to do that,’ he added.

The British actor, who is having twins with his wife and co-star Anna Paquin, admitted he asked the writers for a gay sex scene with Alexander Skarsgard, who plays his arch-enemy Eric. He said both actors would ‘totally embrace that’.

When asked if True Blood had become ‘too gay’, he said: ‘Is there such a thing as too gay? We live in a very different world than we grew up in, so if people can’t embrace that aspect of our show, then that’s a shame.

‘I certainly don’t think it’s specifically gay, but our show ticks a lot of boxes for a lot of people.

‘We have an incredibly broad audience, one of the widest demographics in terms of sexuality and age groups, so obviously we’re doing something right.’
