This is the final season of the hit show
Season 7’s about to get sexy! True to form, the final season of HBO’s True Blood will get down and dirty, if Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin’s new Entertainment Weekly cover is any indication.
The former onscreen and real-life couple posed in a racy shoot, in which they were cuddling in a coffin, with Paquin entirely nude.
The headline reads, “Inside the Crazy, Sexy Final Season of True Blood.”
This isn’t the first time the cast of the vampire drama has appeared in a racy shoot. In September 2010, Paquin, Moyer, and costar Alexander Skarsgard turned heads by going completely nude (and covered in blood) on the cover of Rolling Stone.
Paquin, who will get frisky with costar Joe Manganiello in this season’s premiere, talked about filming a love scene with another man in front of her husband of four years.
"It's not as awkward as you would think," she told EW. "If you were to picture the perfect day at work for your spouse, would that be it? Probably not, but this is just kind of how it's always been. So it doesn't feel as bizarre."
Moyer, who directed the premiere, agreed, noting, "There are moments where I'll be watching the monitor [and say] 'Oh, Joe, just move your hand up towards Anna's breast. And can you move your thumb just a little bit towards her nipple? Great.' And then I'll go 'Babe, babe, enjoy it.' I'm certainly talking to her as 'babe.' 'Darling, go for it, yeah, feel the nipple.'"
The pair were married in 2010 and share twins Poppy and Charlie Moyer, 21 months.
The couple also spoke to Us Weekly about the final season at the Chinese Theatre premiere in Hollywood on June 17. Though they’re still filming, Paquin and Moyer admitted that one table read got particularly emotional.
“It was really beautiful actually,” Moyer admitted. “I think we were all expecting certain things out of it, and then once you're in there and people turned up who we hadn't seen for ages. I mean, that stuff's really deep. We're sitting in the same room that we've been reading in for seven years, and it was suddenly really great.”
The final season of True Blood premieres on Sunday, June 22 at 9 p.m. ET on HBO.
