Ever noticed how Southern Vampire Bill Compton (played by musical star, actor and director Stephen Moyer) had his own dark Cello Leitmotiv, a musical theme that followed him whenever he appeared on screen? Eric Northman (the 1000 year old Viking Vampire played by Alexander Skarsgard) on the other hand came with a Swedish tune that sounded like Nyckelharpa to me. Even the love between Bill and Sookie had its own, beautiful melody. Nathan Barr is the mastermind behind TRUE BLOOD‘s genius original soundtrack. He used only acoustic instruments, no electronic stuff.
Nathan Barr is working on a TRUE BLOOD musical now, we hear: “None of the True Blood cast members have been officially linked to the project yet”, our source tells us. We would so love Stephen Moyer to have a part in it. Not necessarily as Vampire Bill Compton, if he doesn’t want to – he said he “most likely will not reprise his roll of Bill”. Just sing for us, Stephen. And let it not be Edelweiss*) … greets from the Austrian Alps 😉
*) OK, I’d even buy the SOUND OF MUSIC DVD, if it were available in Austria … there, I said it. All because of Stephen Moyer starring in it. Gods, the man can sing and dance …
I hope you don’t dare to spend money on the original “sound of music” from the 1950?
Muahahaaa … no 🙂 I even sent Mr. Moyer some real Austrian music (Austria 3 live), via HBO. Hope he got it.
