[Stephen Moyer is charitable for good reasons. Here the actor walks his dog pack].
Stephen Moyer is in HBO’s True Blood show, that relies on special effects make up artistry a lot to show vampires battling monsters as a key component of this show’s hit success.
Not only is Moyer whose married to his costar Anna Paquin committed to his cast mates best efforts, but he’s also stepping up his charitable heart this year.
The latest on this Hollywood star is the Moyer has partner with Facing the World and Facing the Atlantic, in an effort to raise much needed funds to provide surgeries for children with facial disfigurement.
Facing the Atlantic is the backer of the Atlantic Woodvale race, an idea that sees James Cash and actor Bertie Portal looking to row a two-man boat from the Canary Islands to Barbados.
Moyer and Portal have been best buds for donkeys years now and he was his best man at Moyer and Paquin’s beachside wedding day in a tent at Malibu a while back.
Disfigurement can be painful for any child or adult. We live in times where children need our support to get through such a condition. Peace!

Canadian-born and Kiwi raised actor, Ms Anna Paquin is now Mrs Moyer. From an A.P to an A.M is an upgrade, for sure. :)
True Blood star Stephen Moyer wed his sweetheart, Saturday evening, in Malibu, said their publicist to Us Magazine.Com.
”Surrounded by their family and friends,” guests came bearing gifts in purple boxes and with purple bows in a list that included Elijah Wood and True Blood costar Carrie Preston with her husband Michael Emerson (Lost).
Paquin, 28, and Moyer, 40, wed Middle Eastern styles, ie: they exchanged their vows beneath a ten. Like many Kiwi weddings the star couple’s tent was pitched right across the street in a grassy lot from the beach.
Bleach-blonde Paquin, 28, summoned Marilyn Monroe for her look: she wore a white halterneck, three-quarter length gown and black platform court shoes, with her hair in an updo. Moyer, 40, donned a dark suit.
California love. Congrats to the happy couple!!

~Art is True Blood ink, where a needle is a fang in Hollywood. Art is also music, like good cross-cultural retro music that reminds us to always have courage to put the needle on the record and appreciate diverse entertainers and artists.~
Look at all that fake blood on a real Oscar winning girl from New Zealand. So Hollywoood. And it’s not even Halloween in America yet.
Anna Paquin is doing way too much for HBO in this True Blood cover for Rolling Stone Magazine. What next?!
And as Alexander Skarsgard and Stephen Moyer eye up Anna’s Oscars audience base and appeal, like its theirs–that also makes me smile with their Zoolander model stares. Will Alex and Stephen ever win an Oscar of their own? Only time will tell.
Anything is possible in Hollywood. And if anyone knows that Anna does, having won her Oscar at 10 years of age. But still having an Oscar as a Kiwi kid meant that Anna had to “pack to win,” to move to Hollywood and represent.
I wonder if Anna ever regrets that decision, because look, here she is being vamped and vamping it up as these three crazy kids go over and beyond the call for a New Orleans based hit cable TV series.
Oh, and for the faint in heart, if this image was disturbing, oops–I’m sorry. No harm intended. You just have to know the True Blood Show to get how cool this cover is. These kids are unstoppable for their art, of fame?!
Here’s Ofrah Hazi at the 3:00 minute mark with M/A/R/R/S and some good retro music. Will the true artists of the world, always pump up the volume. Art is in the blood. Let’s go!

True Blood are one of the hottest ensemble casts in the Hollywood game. Snubbed by the often irrelevant Emmys last year for nominations, these crazy kids–can turn on a show, without archaic mileus who miss the boat constantly, even recognizing them.
As this new cast picture portrait demonstrates for True Blood: Season 3 demonstrates, these actors bring an A-List game to the Hollywood mix. Quirky, often irreverant in all of the right places for humor’s purposes. Love them!
Actually, it’s the sixth True Blood promo poster, if you read this blog. Who doesn’t like Stephen Moyer playing Bill Comppton in Allan Ball‘s hit series about vampires on HBO? This show is totally addictive!
And of course, as a fellow kidult who doesn’t want to ‘grow up’ either like all of True Blood’s fan base, we love Bill, because this poster lists his age at 174! Lol! Which makes all of his fans, feel merely like spring chickens. Aw, Bill always makes us feel good.
And Stephen Moyer‘s onscreen/ offscreen love story with the one and only Anna Paquin makes Moyer, Oscars club royalty too, just like Brad Pitt.

While Oscar winner Angelina Jolie recently told EW Magazine that she’s looking forward to “doing new stunts” in future films, fellow Oscar winning peer Anna Paquin of True Blood keeps up Oscars leading ladies rhetoric with a bit of action near her home she shares with fiance Stephen Moyer on beautiful Santa Monica Beach in California. This girl has a very original way of doing the poi dance of New Zealand.
With a Kiwi sense of humor, Anna swings from Olympian hoops (literally) and rides a bike too with True Blood‘s Bill wearing his Brad Pitt cap. Gotta love her. She’s a riot. Too funny.
Alright, it’s Katherine Heigl‘s turn to do a stunt next. These three girls have Hollywood’s cool A-List set sorted between them… for the next few years. Action star, Oscars material. Hot leadership. :)

True Blood rocks out their VILF’s in a marketing blitz via Details Magazine. Anna Paquin‘s fiance Stephen Moyer of the UK works it on the cover of Details Magazine. In Hollywood, the best vampires are always imported, for Americans to consume for their entertainment. A nice cover from Moyer, who is apparently a very open-minded fiance.

“When I found out that they were dating, my reaction was, ‘Uh-oh! I hope that this doesn’t blow up in our face….But this has been happening long enough that it’s very clear that it is the real thing. They’re very, very happy, and I’m just thrilled for them.”–True Blood Screenwriter, Allan Ball comments on actors Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer‘s engagement and love. (Sunday,October 11th, 2009)
In Hollywood, Wednesday night, True Blood star Stephen Moyer said what he really thought of his younger Vampy actor male competitors.
While hosting a benefit for the Good Dog Animal Rescue, National Service Dogs Foundation and Fidelco Dogs Founation with Anna Paquine, Moyer said:
“I haven’t watched The Vampire Diaries and I haven’t seen Twilight either.”
Subtext. He’s not a fan? Meow!
Moyer and Paquin are set to marry soon. Already, Stephen has chosen his border Collie dog, to be his ring bearer at their wedding, over his own son Billy, to make a political point as to how dog welfare is so important.
He’s a character!
