On HBO’s Game of Thrones, Jacob Anderson played Grey Worm. In AMC’s Interview With the Vampire, Jacob Anderson will play The Vampire.
‘Interview With the Vampire’ will feature the Game of Thrones actor as Louis, a young man enticed into the vampire underworld. Previously, Brad Pitt played Louis in the 1994 film. Anderson will reunite with Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor, who is expected to direct the first two episodes of the AMC adaptation of the Anne Rice novel in this new project. Thor: The Dark World was also directed by Taylor for Marvel Studios.
Besides Game of Thrones, Anderson has a recurring part in the upcoming season of Doctor Who, which premieres in the fall. Episodes, The Mimic and Broadchurch are some of his prior works.
As a result of Anderson joining Sam Reid in Lestat de Lioncourt, the film now features two leading actors. When Interview With the Vampire was announced for television in June 2021, Rolin Jones was named showrunner and executive producers Mark Johnson, Anne, Christopher Rice et al. The eight-episode series will premiere on AMC and AMC+ in 2022.
AMC has commissioned eight episodes of Interview With The Vampire, based on Anne Rice’s 1976 novel. Rolin Jones will write, executive produce, and direct the show. According to reports, Anderson will play Vinder, a character who joins forces with Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor for her final season.
“For as long as I can remember, the Doctor has been a part of my life – from watching the VHS serials as a child, where I was afraid, to unexpectedly finding my eyes tearing when the Tenth Doctor remarked, I don’t want to go,” he said. “One of my longtime dreams has come true, and the cherry on top is that I get to play a character that is so entertaining, adventurous, and dynamic as Vinder! This is a great idea.”
AMC will broadcast Interview With The Vampire. On DVD and Blu-ray, Game of Thrones seasons 1-8 is available. The sequel, House of the Dragon, is now under production.
