This season actor Riley Smith joined HBO's hit show, True Blood, for its final season as Carrie Preston’s love interest, vampire Keith. Tuesday, Smith appeared on Maria Menounos' "aftershow" network, AfterBuzz TV, where he was interviewed by hosts Kristin Carole and Scott Moorie as part of the network's Spotlight On series. During the interview, Riley discussed how True Blood star Stephen Moyer spends his breaks on set, cast gifts from the finale and more!
Smith’s first few days on set came with many surprises. “It was very awkward for me for about a day and a half cause I was like how do they do it here on True Blood?” He recalls when seeing some flirting going on between Anna Paquina and Stephen Moyer on set. “They kept flirting...they were talking about her kids and she goes, ‘The key is you have to have kids with somebody prettier than you.' And she smiled at him and I go, 'what does that mean?!'” Smith didn’t know that the two are married with twins, Charlie and Poppy, until co-star Carrie Preston filled him in.
Smith went on to chat about working on set with the surprisingly light cast. Even the show's lead Stephen takes downtime to show the cast personal photos. “I’ll never forget Stephen one of my first days he had his iPad and he was showing pictures of his kids like here they’re on a bike." But he can go back into character at a moment’s notice! “Action! Sookie…so anyways he’s on a bike and he’s literally flawlessly in and out of the character.”
With such a huge and tight knit ensemble cast, as a newbie to the cast, Smith said he was embraced with open arms and leads Anna and Stephen are mom and dad on set . To show their appreciation on set, the A-listers gave the cast a gift to remember, “They gave this polaroid camera with this inscription of True Blood and a written note in blood from Anna and Steve. Just saying the best cast and crew ever love Anna and Steve.”
