"True Blood's" Stephen Moyer may lock horns with fellow vampire Alexander Skarsgard on the HBO series -- but Moyer is hoping for a same-sex romp between the bloodsuckers on the show.
"Alex is a good friend of mine and a fantastic actor and I love working with Alex and I don't get to do it as much as I would love to," Moyer revealed to Digital Spy, adding jokingly, "You never know -- whether they'll stick Eric and Bill in bed together, I don't know. But here's hoping!"
Moyer's Bill Compton is currently entangled in a love triangle with Skarsgard's Eric Northman and Anna Paquin's Sookie -- and approves of it. "One thing about great drama is that you can't watch two characters be happy for... well, sometimes half a season is too much. I think there has to be obstacles put in their way. I think the Bill and Eric characters are great."
Moyer, 39, and Paquin, 27, announced their for real engagement this summer.
"I know that they think that nobody knew about it until the end of the season, but I knew about it by episode two," Ball reveals to People magazine at the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network Respect Awards in L.A.
The 52-year-old writer and producer sensed sparks between Moyer and Paquin when the two first filmed the scene where their characters -- Bill and Sookie -- first met. "Stephen comes into the bar, and takes Anna's hand, and I thought, "Wow, they have chemistry!" But sometimes actors have chemistry when they're acting together, but they cannot stand each other while off set."
Alan admits that when he found out the two were dating, his first reaction was worry about how their romance would play-out on the set. "When I found out that they were dating, my reaction was, 'Uh-oh! I hope that this doesn't blow up in our face.'"
Ball adds, "But this has been happening long enough that it's very clear that it is the real thing. They're very, very happy and I'm just thrilled for them."
Stephen and Anna announced their engagement in August.

"The only word that I know about is werewolves," Stephen coyly told "Extra" at a benefit for Good Animal Dog Rescue at L.A. Dogworks. "I know nothing, but Alan has already admitted there will be werewolves. There are in book three of the series."
Moyer also dished on his engagement to co-star Anna Paquin -- and how she hates surprises. "I try to surprise her all the time and she loathes it," Stephen said, adding that his proposal shocked the actress. "She opened it up, she looked at it, and she looked at me. I said, 'It is what you think it is.' She said, 'Oh yeah what do I think it is?' And the rest is private."
Stephen also admitted to "Extra" that the pair kept their relationship under wraps for as long as possible. "We wanted it to be serious. We wanted to know that what we were doing was absolutely the right thing before we brought all the craziness -- you guys -- into it. We wanted to make sure it was the right thing for everybody to be doing before making that decision."
Moyer and Paquin have had the pleasure of filming numerous sex scenes together for "True Blood" -- but Stephen said that the crew's knowledge has taken away the awkwardness. "Our crew has seen everything -- seen all the wobbly bits. So I suppose the fact that they do know takes all the embarrassment away. 'Oh there's those two again getting their tongues down each other's throats.'"
