Anna Paquin & Stephen Moyer Are Gettin’ Hitched!


People magazine is reporting that on-screen lovers in HBO’s True Blood and real life couple Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer have gotten themselves engaged to be wed. While light on the deets, reps for the couple have confirmed news of the engagement … they’re gettin’ hitched, y’all!

It’s true love for True Blood couple Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer. The two are engaged to be married, reps for both actors on the HBO vampire series confirm to PEOPLE exclusively. No further details were available. The two have been together since Feb. 24 of this year. Paquin, who plays telepathic Sookie Stockhouse on True Blood, is originally from New Zealand and won a 1994 Supporting Actress Oscar for her role as the precocious child in The Piano. Moyer, from Essex, England, plays bloodsucking Bill Compton on the series. He also has two children from previous relationships: a son, Billy, born in 2000, and a daughter, Lilac, born in 2002.

HMMM … I was under the impression that the couple were together longer than just these past few months. But, when two are in lurve, when you know you know. Congrats to the happy couple … here’s hoping this is but the first step in a long and happy life together!

  • CONGRATS to them both! i love them on the show. and they really seem to make a great couple together!

  • I love that show, and I love them…

  • Congrats on the engagement… Anybody else peeved with Moyer for naming his daughter Lilac?

  • They have to have been together more than a year because I read an interview with him having said that when they filmed the Sookie/Sam kiss Stephen pulled Sam Trammel aside to explain to him that he and Anna were dating. Since that aired last fall perhaps the date given should have been in 2008?

  • meh

    Congrats! Love Anna.

  • Jen

    Anna and Stephen have been together since filming the first season of Trueblood. However, they only went public with their relationship earlier this year while promoting the new season. Also, Anna is originally from Canada and moved to New Zealand with her family as a pre-teen.

  • Krissy

    Congrats to them! I love the show, and they seem like nice people. I wish them all the best!

  • Susan

    This is exciting news for them! In a moment of selfishness, I really hope this doesn’t go sour and ruin my favorite show!!!

  • B

    He looks a LOT older than her.

  • Jessica

    @B She’s 27 and he’s 40 so that’s why he looks older

  • Chivonne

    YAY. If only he were a real vampire. It would make this even more awesome!

    & I agree with Susan. I hope this doesn’t screw the show over

  • i n f a m o u s l y c o o l

    well congratulations to the forehead & gap.

  • Meghan

    I love these two! Congrats to them!!

  • kellye

    I so want to marry Bill Compton… LOOOOOVE him.

    This will put a kink on what may come in the upcoming seasons though. Hmmmm…

  • Katie

    Cute! I hope it lasts. And @kellye, I know what you mean!!! This should be interesting…

  • Tracy

    I loooove true blood and I love Anna! I am so happy for them!

  • Kylee

    Yay for them both! Anna is awesome, go the kiwis! i love it how she still has her new zealander accent!

  • Stromm

    Why can’t coworkers just keep it in their pants! Sad, cause I like this show. Sure, it’s really deviating from the books, but I guess this means that Sookie will stay with Bill for the entire show.

  • Elle

    Ps –
    Anna Paquin
    24 July 1982, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
    She was born in Canada….

    Congrats anyway…

  • Ally

    Poor journalism on People’s part. Like others have said, they announced in February that they had been together since filming started. So they have been togethera lot longer than a few months.

    Stromm — It happens a lot to normal people too. Once you are out of school, the people you see at work everyday are usually the core group of people you know. So it is inevitable that close friendships develop and those can always lead to a relationship.

  • Catastrophy

    I hope it last but you never know with hollyweird.. I think she could do so much better tho.

  • Meagan

    YAYYYY!! It makes me so happy when on-screen lovers become a real life couple! No one will ever be as cute as the ultimate Rachel/Ryan combo, but these two are a close second!

  • Presh!

    If only Stephen can use his real accent in the show (he’s English). That would be so awesome than him saying “Soo-keh!” Hihihihi but I love the show so much.

    Congrats to both!

    Congratulations to them.

    Don’t want to make this about the show but ….
    I don’t know where TrueBlood is going since they’ve changed so much already from the books but I hope she doesn’t remain with Bill throughout the series. TEAM ERIC! Then there’s Quinn and Alcide.

  • Hey Trent, have you read the Sandman series? Don’t you think Stephen would make a great Morpheus? :D

    Anyhoo, hope they have a great life together.


    • @All Women Stalker — I’ve read some of it, not all of it. I bought the HUGE collected volumes but have yet to tackle them. Moyer would make a pretty good Morpheus ;)
