Vampire Bill?

Over the weekend Lisa and I finished rewatching the BBC vampire-hunter miniseries, Ultraviolet. This morning I went web-surfing for information about Sue Hewitt, who composed the soundtrack, and stumbled across a fan site that mentioned how one of the supporting cast members, Stephen Moyer, went on to play "the lead vampire" on HBO's True Blood. I would never have noticed this on my own and didn't believe it at first (neither did Lisa when I told her), but yeah, it's true, as you can see in the following segment from the first episode:



...so now I understand why Vampire Bill always sounds so damn stilted. The Louisiana accent is even farther away from home for him than it would be for me.

Yeah, we spotted this when we rewatched Ultraviolet earlier in the year.

It has to be said that the years have not been terribly kind to him...
