Tv series version of ”Interview with the Vampire” which one of the the unforgettable films of the 90’s will be released. The name of Kıvanç Tatlıtuğ was also mentioned for Lestat role.
Anne Rice, the author of the book, which is adapted to the film, is talking about the new series and Kıvanç Tatlıtuğ on the page titled “The Vampire Chronicles” which she opened on Facebook.
Anne Rice wrote on the Facebook about Kivanc Tatlıtuğ: Lestat to me is powerful, physically strong enough even as a human to carry a 110 lb wolf down a snowy mountain. He is pretty as well as beautiful, has very large blue eyes and a full sensuous mouth, and a firm chin. He’s tall. He has a bit of mischief in his personality. He’s athletic and graceful. Feline grace is mentioned in the first novel. — I’m not sure that he should be played by an actor with a decided accent, but if he is, I think the accent should sound French, or come close to it. What fascinates me in this film clip is that Kivanc’s Turkish accent sounds decidedly French to my ear. For me, Lestat’s demeanor matters, and his voice matters. I don’t think the actor has to be a singer, but it’s interesting that Kivanc is a singer. As for acting experience, Kivanc has a long list of credits on IMDB, but all the work is Turkish. — The age of the actor matters to me. Lestat is twenty one when made a vampire. So I feel we need an actor who looks that young even though he may not be. (Note: in our time males are still in adolescence and changing physically right up to the age of thirty).
