Stephen Moyer Shows Nathan Parsons Vampire Rules

True Blood’s newest hotty vampire, James has been re-cast this season by Nathan Parsons. I’m happy with Nathan in the role based on what I saw in the first episode of Season 7. The scene with James and Lafayette was one of my favorites of the episode and Nathan was very sexy and realistic as the 1970’s draft dodger turned vampire. I noticed that he seemed to have a similar slowness, similar to our sultry vampire, Bill Compton, and I wondered about it.  Now, I’ve got the answer because he was taught by the master himself, Stephen Moyer.

The recent season seven premiere gave viewers a greater insight into James when he opened up to Lafayette about how he became a vampire. From his first day on set, True Blood star and director Stephen Moyer (Vampire Bill) took Parsons under his wing.

He taught me how to be a vampire in this world,” he said.

“Every vampire show has different rules and different ways of doing things.

“It was good to have Stephen there to say ‘okay when your fangs click out this is how I do it, this is what you need to think about’. I got tips on being a vampire from Vampire Bill himself.”

Parsons is best known for his role as Jackson in The Originals, which follows the original vampire family from The Vampire Diaries as they return and settle in New Orleans.

“The Originals has its own mythology which is similar (to True Blood) but different. I play a werewolf on The Originals so I get both sides of the coin, which is really fun,” he said.

His introduction to the complex web of True Blood characters was also made easier by his friendship with Deborah Ann Woll, who plays flame-haired vampire Jessica.

“We went to college together so it was really comfortable to just step in,” he said.

The cast has spent the past seven months filming the show’s final season and Parsons said there was a lot to squeeze into 10 episodes.

“So much happens so quickly it sort of takes your breath away,” he said.

“This is how True Blood works.

“You get on the show and you’re thrust into the blood, sex and violence.”

  1. Not at all surprised that Stephen was so generous with his time to a new castmate on the TB set:) Stephen is just a Super Man! xo

  2. He’s a NATURAL and fits right in. Especially with Lafayette. I think I like him much better than the first James. Nathon Parsons is not only hot and sultry, he convinced me right off that he’s a perfect pairing with our Lala.
    Jessica sure finds hot men!

  3. Mr. Parsons is a winner!  He can’t miss … he’s been taught by the master himself, Vampire Bill. I enjoyed his scene with Lafayette and look forward to more from him as the season progresses.

  4. Rowena75 I too am looking forward to a lot more of him, hopefully, and he WAS taught by the Master Himself! He even reminds me of Bill in his laid back attitude.

  6. Well he can’t go wrong having attended Bill Compton’s school for vampires.  The Prince of Perfection and King of all Vampires teaching the art of displaying fangs and graceful slow body movements to mesmerize and seduce the masses.  Of course one is the student and then there is the Master and one can’t build Rome in a day. 
    I like James  and he has potential. He has great chemistry with Lala.

  7. you are very good looking Vampire Stephen Moyer good job I wish we could be friends Earl Brittenham from Michigan
