Inside True Blood is talking to True Blood actor Michael McMillian (Steve Newlin) about working the 8th episode with Stephen Moyer in the directors chair.
“It’s clear Stephen has a deep appreciation for these characters and a need to dig into things a little deeper than usual to find the truth in each scene. He has a natural talent for directing. He’s really in his element behind the camera and brings a playful and wicked sense of humor with him. It was fun working with him. I felt like the parents had left town and our cool big brother was in charge of all us kids. He took his role seriously, but still managed to throw us a party.”
Episode 8 is titled “Somebody That I Used to Know“.
