wants a low key wedding to her fiancé and True Blood
co-star Stephen Moyer
, admitting “I wasn’t the girl who spent hours dreaming of my wedding.”
In fact, the New Zealand-born actress who plays telepathic Sookie Stackhouse in the vampire series says
, “It’s more about being family than becoming Bridezilla overnight and wearing some big meringue wedding dress. That would scare the s*** out of me.”
Have Anna, 27, and Stephen —who has two children from previous relationships, Billy, 9, and 7-year-old Lilac —set a date yet? “We’re happy and things are good and we’re not on any particular schedule and it’ll happen when we have time.
“The scheduling factor – my family’s all in New Zealand, his family’s all [in England]…I don’t even know. Not right now.”
What does Anna see in Stephen, 39, who plays the 173-year-old vampire Bill Compton? “He’s lovely. He’s very funny,” she gushes. “I’m definitely not on any level attracted to people who don’t have a good sense of humour. That’s how you get through the ups and the downs.”
And her off-screen relationship with her on-screen lover helps ease the awkwardness of their sex scenes. “It’s a really full-on sexy show,” she asserts, “lots of weird, kinky vampire sex and weird, kinky mortal sex.
“It never put me off. I guess either you read something and go, ‘Oh, my God, no!’ or you read something and you go, ‘That’s sort of cool!’ I mean, the sex is very romantic, and at first it’s very loving.”
Meanwhile, as she prepares to be a bride, the former child star enjoys her transformation into local waitress, Sookie, on the HBO series. “She was meant to be tanned so they spray-tanned me, gave me a really good bra, some little tiny outfits, and away we go!
“The blonde just feels normal now. And the spray tan I still kind of really love, having been one of the palest pale girls on the planet.”Source
