Who knew that the hit FX show Sons of Anarchy was this close to getting our favorite vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and the waitress we always wanted Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin)? It sure sounds like it was almost a done deal when Moyer spoke to EW when he even said what their character’s would be.
“I was going to play a pimp and she was going to play a whore.”
So why didn’t the two head over to the show if everything was in motion? It looks like the couple had a good reason.
“We were trying to make it work. We were dead into it. The thing was, we agreed to have some time off after the end of True Blood, and we had already arranged it.”
It makes sense that the couple would need some time off as they both were non-stop for years. But don’t worry you can soon catch Stephen in another Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter’s The Bastard Executioner that will air September 15th on FX.
