Moyer: I wasn't looking for a wife

Stephen Moyer has admitted he wasn't in the market for a bride when he met wife Anna Paquin.

The Essex-born actor met Oscar-winner Anna on the set of their vampire show True Blood - and they went on to tie the knot in Malibu in 2010 - but he said he wasn't thinking about marriage at the time.

"I certainly wasn't looking for a wife when I started," laughed the actor, who has two children from previous relationships.

"Neither of us were looking. And perhaps that's the point - when you're looking in the wife shop, you can never find one. And then one comes along when you're least expecting it."

Stephen also revealed the couple missed working together so much in the last series when the relationship between his vampire Bill Compton and Anna's telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse came to an end.

The 42-year-old said: "Anna and I love working together, it's all we've ever known, so we kind of miss it, but I think they realised halfway through season one that our show works best when there's conflict."

But the actor hinted that season five will see more changes for Bill and Sookie.

"There is something that happens at the beginning of the season which changes their relationship again," he teased.

:: The fourth series of True Blood starts on FX on Sunday, February 5.
