You play a young vampire in True Blood, tell me about your character?
I play Alexander Drew. He is described as impetuous vamp who likes to taunt others. He is basically a trouble maker. He was turned at the age of nine. So I’m like an old man stuck in a little kid’s body. But if you want to talk authority, I’ve got authority – I get to taunt the big guys – I’m that important!
The show is aimed at much older audience, are you allowed to watch it at all? If not, how did you prepare for the role?
Well, in human years, of course not! I am not allowed to watch the show. My dad is an actor and my acting coach and he really prepared me for the role. Not to mention, I love vampires. I have books about them and I am very fascinated with them. When I found out I booked the role, I couldn’t stop reading about vampires!
I love the way Eric gets right in Sookie’s face and she doesn’t back away one bit, on the contrary she moves in closer.
