Attending the Stephen Moyer’s WEEV Launch at Comic Con 2014

Last Friday, I went to the launch of Stephen Moyer’s new APP, “WEEV” at the Wired Cafe. It was an invitation only event held at the Wired Cafe at the Omni Hotel in San Diego, CA. I was happy to be permitted to attend with my friend Lydia.

As we’ve reported previously, WEEV is Stephen’s new app which is social video that talks back. Ask a question, make a statement, or start an idea. People can respond in short videos that are stitched together to build the conversation. Stephen came up with the idea because he needed a fun way to ask his son questions online since he lives in England and Steve is here in LA most of the time. That was when the concept was born and now it’s a full fledged application and great fun to use with your friends and family.

 
THE LAUNCH EVENT
 
I arrived at the hotel at about 3pm even though Steve was not expected to arrive until about 4pm, because I had heard that it might be crowded. My friend, Lydia and I waited talking to friends and I noticed Kristin Bauer van Straten sitting out on the patio talking (see photo below). When she was about to leave she was kind enough to come up to me and say hello. We talked about the upcoming end of the season and she said she was sad about it. She had gotten to the event much earlier than I did, so she was on her way out and we said “goodbye.”

Other celebrities were there and participated by recording a WEEV. I saw Ben Kingsley and from Game of Thrones Isaac Hempstead Wright who plays “Brandon Stark,” .

Finally, after waiting for about an hour and a half, Stephen arrived. As soon as he walked in, he was immediately consumed with photo obligations and interviews. I was glad to be there to take lots of photos while he was being photographed, (see below).

Once he had shot his photos, he came over to say hello and we took this pic. It was a very hot and humid day in San Diego to wait in order to see and learn about the APP, but it was so worth it.

MORE ABOUT THE APP
 
I had downloaded the APP last summer when it was still in BETA. Stephen had told me about it then when I visited the True Blood set. WEEV a mind-blowingly simple video app that lets people ask questions to the world and have them answered in short videos seamlessly stitched together.

Lots have downloaded and posted on the app, and below are just a few screen shots of the True Blood cast members who have already posted a WEEV:

Will Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer appear on Sons of Anarchy?

While Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer have said to the press that they plan a long two month holiday now that True Blood’s filming and Comic Con 2014 are over, they just might appear in a cameo on the last season of the show, “Sons of Anarchy.”

Creator of Sons of Anarchy, Kurt Sutter, offered Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin — a role in the final season of the FX series. This would mean a “SoA”/“True Blood” hookup.

Kurt Sutter proposed a possible vampire-debut after Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin fan-girled out on Twitter over meeting up with Kim Coates and Theo Rossi at Comic-Con.

So excited to see my lovely mate. @KimFCoates w/ @Theorossi at #SDCC2014 #TrueToTheEnd @TrueBloodHBO @SonsofAnarchy,” Moyer wrote to his followers.

But little did Moyer know that his tweet would catch the eye of Sutter who responded with a heart-stopping pitch.

@_smoyer you and the wife should play a pimp and a ho on #SOA,” the mastermind of the critically acclaimed drama said.

Stephen and Anna were quick to accept Kurt’s offer:

Where do I sign Kurt?” was Stephen’s response.

And Anna responded with an hysterical reply: When and where? I do trashy/tragic/slutty like none other. Oh, and it appears I am now unemployed.

Stephen Moyer sat down with Queen Latifah and chatted about directing naked on True Blood, and about Obama who just happens to be a huge True Blood fan.

Queen Latifah thought it would be fun to challenge Stephen in a special monster’s edition of “Forbidden.” Stephen played the game on the behalf of a charity close to his heart, The Silas Pullen Fund.

We stand behind Stephen in his support for The Silas Pullen Fund, you can read more about it on our dedicated page.

Always a pleasure to watch Stephen on a talk show. Enjoy the videos!

Stephen Moyer named One of the Most Intriguing Actors of Comic Con

Stephen Moyer made the WIRED Top List for ‘The Most Intriguing Actors, Writers, and Directors at Comic-Con This Year’.

From the WIRED website:

Stephen Moyer, actor

Why you know him: Vampire Bill on True Blood

On the end of True Blood:

“I’ve had a lot of people saying, ‘Is it bittersweet?’ Honestly, it’s just sweet. It’s been amazing. It’s been seven wonderful years and I’m really so proud and so grateful for everything that it’s been, but I’m really excited about what comes next. Truthfully, I’m so glad that we’re all ending here, all of us together. It’s been such a whirlwind the last couple months, with bringing the show to a close. It just feels like a normal end of the season, but I think around December we’re going to realize it’s not.”

On playing the sometimes-sweet, sometimes hate-able Bill Compton:

“I always teach drama students that you have to love who you’re playing, whether you agree with what they’re doing or not. If you don’t like what they’re doing, you have to decide and agree with the reason that they’re doing it. But I love him. The first three or four years he was always trying, even when bad, he was always trying to do the right thing by Sookie, but failing—and ultimately failing because he wasn’t prepared to tell her the truth. That’s a great lesson: Tell the truth, always. It might be painful, but tell the truth. Then he ended up in a blood pile on the floor and resurrected as a demigod. That’s when you go, ‘What the fuck am I going to do with him?’ But as an actor approaching that, it was a whole ton of fun. I got to do some gnarly crazy shit.”
