true-blood-sookie-alcide-sex-scene-stephen-moyer-hbo.jpgIf you've watched the "True Blood" Season 7 premiere, then you know that Alcide and Sookie finally (finally finally!) had a sex scene in the episode. 

The only catch? Stephen Moyer (aka Vampire Bill, aka husband of Sookie actress Anna Paquin) was the one who directed the episode. That means he was the one instructing his wife of four years how to get hot and heavy with another man.

"There are moments where I'll be watching on a monitor [and say], 'Oh, Joe, just move your hand up towards Anna's breast. Good. And can you move your right thumb just a little bit towards her nipple? Great.' And then I'll go, 'Babe, babe, enjoy it,'" Moyer recalls to Entertainment Weekly. "I'm certainly talking to her as 'babe.' 'Darling, go for it. Yeah, feel the nipple.'"

Paquin adds, "We set the bar very high for weird very early on. We've done a lot of odd s*** on this show. Actually, the potentially awkward couplings [are] not the weirdest s*** that we've done on this show."

As for Joe Manganiello, who plays Alcide, he tells Zap2it that the most exciting part of his new, serious relationship with Sookie is getting to work with the likes of Paquin and Moyer again.

"Coming back into the main storyline with Sookie meant that I was going to be able to go back and see everybody and spend time with everybody and work with everybody again, which I was really excited about," he says. "It was just nice to be back with everybody else, with Stephen and Anna and the gang. I missed everybody while I was off on Werewolf Island."

"True Blood's" seventh and final season airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.
