He plays a vampire with super strength on True Blood, but Stephen Moyer is just as fragile as the rest of us mortals in real life.

The actor arrived at the taping of the Spike Scream Awards in Los Angeles Saturday night with his fiancé Anna Paquin, 27, walking with a cane due to a torn meniscus he acquired while playing with his kids.

"I'd like to say it as some kind of thrusting, sexy injury," joked the British actor, 40, who picked up the award for best horror actor. "But it really isn't." Moyer has two children from previous relationships.

Despite "feeling great," Moyer said, "[my doctors] told me I wasn't allowed to not use the cane. So I thought if I'm going to have it I may as well use it at the Spike Awards." And it seems he's taken a liking to his accessory. "I might just keep it forever," he said.

The Scream Awards will air Oct. 27 on Spike.
