Los Angeles, Aug 14 (IANS) “True Blood” actor Stephen Moyer has said he enjoyed watching news coverage of the “exciting” London riots.

Violence began Aug 6 in London’s northern district of Tottenham after the killing of a suspected drug-dealer taxi driver by police. Rioters started stalking streets, looting stores and burning buildings.

A host of celebrities, including singer Annie Lennox and comedian Russell Brand, have condemned the violence. However, Los Angeles-based Moyer, who grew up in Essex, Britain, claimed he’s revelling in a “bit of anarchy”, reports

“It’s exciting, isn’t it? I love it, it’s a bit of anarchy! It’s like, I get my deckchair out and I sit on the street and make myself a cucumber sandwich and I sit down and I watch (video footage),” the 41-year-old said during an appearance on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” Aug 11.

“It’s like violent dinner theatre. We’re quite a secular, boring bunch in England and I think it’s quite interesting to have a bit of a revolution,” he added.
