Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin aren't haunted by the vampires or werewolves they have to deal with on a daily basis for True Blood.

"We go home and dream about marshmallows!" Stephen laughed, speaking before a special question and answer event with fans at the PaleyFest in Beverly Hills.

The actor, who plays Bill Compton on the hit US fantasy series, reckons the show just keeps getting better.

"It's the dream that you dream of in terms that it's good, it's beautifully written, it's fantastically shot and each episode looks like a mini movie," he explained.

"If you were to put together your dream gig of how it would end up it wouldn't be much further away from this... it just keeps getting better and better and the show keeps getting more and more interesting, it's everything you hope it would be."

True Blood's cast and crew are currently busy shooting Season Four, and Stephen admitted it will be hard to top the reception that the third season received.

"We've had these incredible spikes each year," he said. "I don't think it's historically possible to get another 60 per cent spike in audience figures but if we maintain what we've got I think we'll be very happy."

You'd rather put people in an uncomfortable position than accept their inflexible position. By stirring up enough publicity, you could exert enough pressure to create some changes. A new set of rules will allow you to move forward with a brilliant plan. You'll get the full support of an influential executive who is tired of the old guard.More
