‘A Bit of Light’: One on One with Stephen Moyer

Stephen Moyer gets behind the camera to showcase his wife Anna Paquin in the moving new drama A Bit of Light.

A Bit of Light, directed by Stephen Moyer (True Blood) from a screenplay by Rebecca Callard. Callard adapts her Bruntwood Prize-nominated play of the same name. The film stars Academy® Award winner Anna Paquin (True Blood, X-Men, Flack). With her is BAFTA Award Nominee Ray Winstone (Damsel, The Gentlemen,The Departed, Black Widow). The film also stars Pippa Bennett-Warner (Gangs Of London, See How They Run) and BAFTA nominee Youssef Kerkour (Home). Last but not least, this film features Luca Hogan’s big screen debut.

Moyer, who can currently be seen in Paramount +’s Sexy Beast, the final two episodes of which he directed, also helmed several episodes of True Blood as well as Amazon Prime Video’s Flack, starring Paquin and executive produced by the pair. He made his feature directing debut with The Parting Glass, also produced by Moyer and Paquin.

A Bit of Light is an intimate story about a recovering alcoholic named Ella (Paquin). A series of tough breaks forces Ella to move back in with her father Alan (Winstone). Meanwhile, her daughters are under the care of her ex-husband Joseph (Kerkour) and his new partner Bethan (Bennett-Warner).

Drowning in guilt, Ella finds herself in fights with Joseph and Bethan about the kids and Alan over AA meetings. However, an unlikely friendship with Neil (Hogan) opens her eyes to taking responsibility and making the changes she needs to make.

Our Bonnie Laufer had the opportunity to chat at length with Moyer about A Bit of Light, what still surprises him about his wife Anna Paquin, working on the new series Sexy Beast, directing his hero Ray Winstone (who gave his blessing on Moyer’s Sexy Beast role) and why he and Anna can’t helm their own True Blood podcast.

A Bit of Light hits selects theatres, VOD and on Demand April 5th.
