Stephen Moyer, a graduate of the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA), began his professional acting career on stage including two years with the Royal Shakespeare Company. He made his big screen debut as the titular character in Prince Valiant opposite Katherine Heigl and followed this by starring opposite Geoffrey Rush, Kate Winslet, Joaquin Phoenix and Michael Caine in Quills.

In the US, he starred opposite Debra Messing in USA’s Golden Globe and Emmy-nominated Starter Wife but his biggest break came when he was cast in the lead role of “Bill Compton” in Alan Ball’s HBO series True Blood. The series earned numerous Golden Globe and Emmy nominations to become one of HBO’s highest-rated shows of all time. During this time, he worked with acclaimed Canadian director Atom Egoyan in his feature film, Devil’s Knot, which chronicled the trail of three teens wrongly accused of murdering three young boys in West Memphis, Arkansas. Moyer portrayed prosecuting attorney “John Fogleman.” Moyer followed the immense success of True Blood by collaborating with another acclaimed showrunner, Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter. Moyer portrayed villain, “Milus Corbett,” in FX’s mini-series, The Bastard Executioner. He stayed within the FOX family for his next two television projects, playing a corrupt cop in the limited series Shots Fired and the patriarch of a family with superpowers in Marvel’s The Gifted.
