Most people have nightmares about being naked in public, but not True Blood's Rob Kazinsky. In fact, he looks forward to it.

"The idea of being naked on screen was really intimidating," the British actor, 29, tells PEOPLE about filming love scenes for his new role as the "half-fairy," Ben Flynn, on the HBO vampire hit. "But after your first time it becomes really fun and incredibly freeing and empowering."

Kazinsky admits that his foray into the frequent nudity on the Sunday night series was made all the easier thanks to his costar in the scene, Anna Paquin.

Stephen Moyer Loves Directing His True Blood Costars Naked

Originally posted 06/13/2013 04:00PM

Stephen Moyer has been stripping down for years on True Blood. But for some episodes of the new season, he was in charge of getting his costars naked, too – and found that just as enjoyable.

"It was a lot of fun doing three hours of makeup and getting into complete red-blob land, and then directing my fellow actors naked. That was a lot of fun," Moyer said Tuesday at the HBO vampire show's season 6 premiere at Hollywood's Cinerama Dome at the Arclight.

Moyer, 43, who tries his hand at directing this season – which kicks off Sunday (9 p.m. ET) – says he's very understanding with the other actors when it comes to the pressure of baring all for the cameras.

She's not yet introduced them formally to the world, but True Blood actress Anna Paquin found time for a Sunday family stroll in Los Angeles with her 2-month-old fraternal twins.

Paquin, 30, was joined by her mom, Mary Paquin, on the post-Thanksgiving outing, as they took in some fresh air with her son and daughter, born in September. Dad is her costar and husband, fellow TV vampire Stephen Moyer.

The Hollywood couple has yet to reveal the names of the twins and have thus far kept their sweet faces private, even as photographers have caught them frequently strolling near their Venice, Calif., home. – Andrea Billups

Some actors admit to awkward moments filming love scenes.

Anna Paquin is not one of them.

Although her husband and father of her baby-on-the-way, Stephen Moyer, 42, costars with her on True Blood, the actress has no qualms about filming sex scenes with fellow cast mate Alexander Skarsgard.

"We feel completely comfortable together," Paquin, 29, tells Redbook in its August issue hitting newsstands July 10. "Steve and Alex are buddies. It's nothing like, 'Oh, hi, nice to meet you. Now take off your clothes and go into the fog.' Everyone is respectful of each other's boundaries ... They're all very gentlemanly about it."

Toast True Blood with Bloody Good Cocktails

What better way to kick off the campy new season of True Blood on June 10 than with a couple of blood red cocktails.

Basil Hayden's bourbon teamed with L.A. mixologist Joel Black to come up with two drinks inspired by the HBO hit's supernatural themes and the show's gutsy leading lady, Sookie Stackhouse, played by expectant mom Anna Paquin.

Fans who want to imbibe while Sookie, Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) and a host of supernatural creatures battle it out in Bon Temps, might want to try – what else – a spicy True Bloody Mary or a sweet floral cocktail dubbed Sookie's Virtue, which includes red grapes and raspberries.
