Bill, as played by Stephen Moyer, is pure magic. It is him and his chemistry with real-life fiance, Anna Paquin, that make the show so unique. The idea of a vampire loving a human is far from new but the idea of a telepathic human loving a vampire because she cannot hear the thoughts in his head is uncharted territory. Fans of Charlaine Harris' books may be bummed out that Sookie is not with Eric yet, but more than a few fans of the TV show would be shocked if she left Bill (although the show is angling to make that a real Season 3 possibility). In Alan Ball's universe Bill is a gentleman and true-blue lover.
