The filming of True Blood’s season 5 is more than half completed and we’re excited to see some new casting calls for the next episode 8. However, the biggest and most important news about this episode for us, is that Stephen Moyer, our own Bill Compton will direct, as noted in the information from IMDB below:
TRUE BLOOD, Episode #508, “Somebody That I Used to Know”
Director: Stephen Moyer
Writer: Mark Hudis
Start Date: approx. 4/2/12
This is the first time a True Blood star has directed an episode and since we know Stephen has longed to direct, we’re thrilled for him.
However, we’re also not too surprised about it since we remember that during PaleyFest last year Stephen was asked if he wanted to direct an episode of True Blood. His reply was that he had hoped to do so. He also revealed then that he had already shadowed one of the directors to learn the ropes during Season 3. We wish him the best in his True Blood directing debut and cannot wait to see his episode.
Below is the video from Paleyfest where Stephen talks about his desire to direct.
