Recently, AMC’s series adaptation of Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire found its Lestat in the form of Sam Reid. Now, the series’ other lead has been cast: Jacob Anderson (Overlord, Game of Thrones) will play Louis.
Louis is the protagonist in the novel Interview with the Vampire, where he tells the story of how he was turned into a vampire by Lestat, with whom he then “raised” a vampire child, Claudia. He appears in numerous books in the Vampire Chronicles series, including reuniting with Lestat in The Vampire Lestat.
Rolin Jones (Friday Night Lights) is creating, showrunning, and writing Interview with the Vampire. The series is expected to release sometime in 2022.
