Interview with the vampire

The popular series Interview With the Vampire is available to watch now on the BBC – and to mark this joyous occasion, we had the pleasure in speaking to the leading man, Jacob Anderson. The actor, renowned for his role on Game of Thrones, is fronting a show that brings a new and exciting take on Anne Rice’s popular literary creation.

Anderson speaks about the positive audience reaction to the show, and what he believes has connected so greatly with fans. He also talks about his collaboration and friendship with co-star Sam Reid, while also explaining the nerves + excitement of being privy to the scripts of a second series, and how it feels to leave your character’s fate in the hands of others…
