'True Blood' returns Sunday on HBO and Stephen Moyer is back as Bill Compton, the 173-year-old hunky vampire. Last year he married his on-screen love, Anna Paquin. The 41-year-old Brit is deliciously cheeky and fun and he spoke to PopEater about what to expect this season, his joy at not having to manscape any more, and talks the perils of falling in love with your co-star.

You fell in love on the set, which is such a cliche ... you know that, right?
Yeah. I've not got an original bone in my body. I think we were both not in relationships at the time, we were sort of dating and I don't think we were looking. There was an attraction, obviously and undeniably, but in your head you're going, 'That would be such a cliche!' and also I've said this before but all of these people have signed on to do this gig, they're hoping it's going to last seven years and the last thing that you want to do is screw it up for everybody by having a little flirtation and then hating each other for the next seven years. So you think you're not going to act on this but you know our resolve didn't last long.
