Stephen Moyer – Looking at Extraordinary Things Happening to Ordinary People
Stephen Moyer spoke to the Miami Herald on Friday, October 18 when he attended the premiere of CASM’s production of “Free Ride” at Cinema Paradiso.
Below is a transcript of the video interview with Stephen:
Although the interviewer didn’t think the film was low budget, Stephen explained later that it was at the 1920s-themed FLIFF gala, held at a private home nearby. He said,
“We were working with a very little amount of money. We had one of those situations where even members of the crew were extras at some point. It was nuts!”
He went on to say:
“We had something like 29 period cars and four boats for four weeks, and it cost us only $5,000. Anyone thinking they were going to make a fortune out of their fancy cars were sadly mistaken.”
Moyer isn’t a true-crime buff but felt the Betz-written screenplay was interesting enough for the big screen.
“My M.O. is looking at extraordinary things happening to ordinary people and how they cope, I love stories that have reality in them.”
But as far as watching reality shows?
Nope. “I can’t remember the last time I turned on the TV except to watch the finale of Breaking Bad.”
Four kids can do that (he also has a daughter and son from two previous relationships). The one-time Starter Wife star doesn’t even have time to watch himself on his own HBO vampire drama.
“Sometimes I watch the first couple of episodes to see how everything is going with the script and then say, ‘OK, we’re good.’ ”
