LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer -- the stars of TV vampire series "True Blood" -- have married in Malibu a year after announcing their engagement, U.S. celebrity magazines reported on Sunday.

Paquin, 28, and British actor Moyer, 40, married at a private home in the southern California beach enclave in a sunset ceremony on Saturday attended by several of their "True Blood" co-stars, Us Weekly and People magazines said.

Paquin, who won an Oscar at the age of 11 for her supporting role in the 1993 movie "The Piano," plays psychic waitress Sookie Stackhouse in the HBO TV show to Moyer's vampire Bill Compton.

The gap-toothed actress, who was born in Canada and raised in New Zealand, made headlines in April by declaring she was bisexual as part of a campaign for gay rights.

The couple met on the "True Blood" set and have said their first kiss took place on-screen. Moyer, who has two children from previous relationships, said in the July issue of Playboy that trust was the key to their relationship.

"We trust each other so implicitly that there's never anything hurtful; it always comes from a loving place. It's not as though people I've been with before haven't been loving, but with Anna it's just about pure trust, on camera and off. I have never trusted anybody like I trust Anna," he told Playboy.
