True Blood - Allan Hyde Interview

Did you already know either the show of True Blood or the books by Charlaine Harris, at the time you were casted for the role as Godric?
ALLAN: When I got cast I did not know anything at all. I did do my research as soon as things were looking as if stuff might happen and was astounded of how huge the project and phenomenon was and still is.

Most of the cast members know each other since the beginning of the show. So how has your first day on set been with all the people, who are already such a well-rehearsed team?
ALLAN: Everyone is great. Really nice people and amazing actors. They made it very easy for me. Though it was nerveracking, borderline terrifying to play everything that calm and so small with the appropriate confidence when everyone around you is someone you admire and want to impress. It took a lot of me to stay true to my ideas and not over-compensate.

Allan or Godric... is there anything which you share with the character?
ALLAN: I have gone through the same stuff Godricv has gone through in my own life but on a much smaller scale. I have experienced having an epiphany if you may about stuff I had been doing that was not nice at all. This I applied in the character and intensified out of proportions.

Bela Lugosi's Dead: Vampire History, From Scary Monster to Sexy Beast

Love it or hate it, you can’t deny the sheer impact of the Twilight phenomenon.
But the evolution of the vampire from horror to hottie is a surprising development. Sure, mysterious and brooding is always sexy when you’re a teen (or at least that’s what Stephenie Meyer is banking on), but how did we ever get from the bloodthirsty Count Dracula and beastly Nosferatu-style freaks of nature to sexy vamps like Edward Cullen and Bill Compton? On the release of the third installment of the Twilight film series, Eclipse, we explore, in timeline form, how our perception of these creatures of the night went from terrifying to swoon-worthy.
To get your full, bloodlusty fix, check out our gallery below for a look at all the featured vampires in chronological order, brush up on your auxiliary vampire myths via our handy field guide or rock out with our vamp-centric playlist.

Vlad Tepes (Vlad the Impaler) (1456)
Prince Vlad III, also known as Dracula (“son of the dragon” or “son of the devil”), comes to power in Wallachia (modern-day Romania). His cruelty earns him the nickname “Vlad the Impaler,” and his legend becomes the framework for the greatest vampire tale of them all, Dracula.
