Denis O'Hare, who plays Vampire King of Mississippi Russell Edgington on the HBO vampire drama True Blood, married his boyfriend on Thursday in New York City.
“Okay. It happened,” O'Hare tweeted to his more than 4,000 followers on Thursday. “Hugo [Redwood] and I just got married.”
Eight hours later, he tweeted a photograph of the happy couple along with the sentiment: “Hugo and I in the courthouse … Mr. And Mr.”
In season 3 of True Blood, O'Hare's flamboyant Edgington was entombed in concrete after he lost his partner of 700 years, Talbot, played by Theo Alexander.
However, O'Hare, 49, recently told The Hollywood Reporter that he's considering returning in season 4.
“I left them on a high,” he said. “They have been very, very nice to me, and they tell me that they think I'm going to come back.”
“Someone discussed a possible idea with me, which, of course, I can't tell you,” he said. “But it's a very cool idea. It's not far fetched, but it's not something that you would see coming.”
O'Hare talked about his long-term relationship in an interview last year with gay glossy The Advocate.
“Hugo and I have a pretty fantastic relationship,” O'Hare said. “We definitely have our frictions here and there, but we get along really, really well. At 10 years we have a great amount of mutual respect for each other, so we rarely descend into any kind of disrespectful sniping.”
“Hugo,” he added, “is an interior decorator.”
O'Hare can also be seen in cabler FX's upcoming American Horror Story.
