Trivia Time: Did you know that Stephen Moyer…

For our continuously growing Facebook following, almost 6300 Stephen Moyer fans, I have been posting a daily trivia about our man. With the help of Lynnpd’s excellent bio page and my photographic memory for useless information, I posted quite a few Stephen facts that were unknown to the newer fans or those who have a life outside the fandom.

You might be shocked to hear that there are still people out there who don’t have a Facebook account, for those 2 peeps I’ll post an overview of the Trivia published on the Facebook page.

  1. I am one of those peeps without a Facebook page. Yes, I freely admit it. Thanks for the Stephen Trivia treats, Shad. Most of these I knew. However, I love making new Stephen discoveries and seeing them all in one place. Kudos to both you and Lynn.

    1. Yes Rowena, you are 1 of the 2 Billsbabes that don’t have Facebook. But I imagined you would know most of these trivia since you belong to the group who doesn’t have a life outside the fandom… bbwhwhhwhahahahhaa right there with ya, girlfriend!

  2. I don’t do Facebook either; guess I’m too Old School for that. (And from what I’ve read, Steve isn’t on Facebook either). And yet I could have answered every single one of those Moyer trivia questions. (Talk about not having a life).
    As an aside, I highly recommend the recent film, “The Social Network”, about the founding of Facebook; it’s a fascinating movie.

      1. Wow, i didn’t know that, but i would definitely add him to my list. I knew most stuff from the trivia, but i wonder how it was found out about the purple socks on his wedding.

  3. I know several things about Stephen, but I did not know

    – He plays the ukulele
    – He bought a boat purple!
    – that Stephen likes to play scrabble with his friends on his iPhone

    Che uomo..adorabile =)

  4. Pardon me for bragging, but I already knew almost the whole list. I did not know his houseboat was purple.

    I also know that he had “Kashmir” playing for his entrance at the wedding. (At least I read that.)

    1. Iam, I love a man who is not afraid to walk down the aisle to a Led Zeppelin song. Well done, Steve. No wonder we are all mad about you!

  5. Darlings, I have to admit that I already knew all this stuff, but it’s great to see it in one place, as I have picked it up from scattered sites. I would pay big money to have a recording of Steve singing my fellow Canadian Leonard Cohen’s brilliant song, “Hallelujah.” Jeff Buckley’s version is one of many, and tragically he died young. I have to say that thus far, my favourite one is the incomparable kd lang’s. Check it out on YouTube. She has an amazing voice. Thanks for posting this list, Shad.
