What motivates you the most?:
Perfection. I’m determined to be the best at everything.

That’s admirable! Who is your favorite person?:
Myself, of course. I’m the best at everything, remember?

Riiiiiiiight. How have you changed over time?
I used to be dull, concerned with everyone else’s happiness. Now, I have taken control of my life – I look out for myself, and other people can be concerned with my happiness.

Okay, that’s… something. Tell us, do you have any advice for fledgling perfectionists?:
Yes, I do. If someone is furious with you one second, then brings you delicious snacks the next, don’t trust her. She’s going to try to cut your throat and destroy you and turn your beloved companion against you with her evil, poisonous words, and her oh-so-precious curls, and her cute little venomous voice, and her-

Okay!! Sound advice, thank you!
I know, I give the best advice.

Naturally. What would you most like people to know about you?:
I wasn’t put on this earth with all the answers. I didn’t have someone around to tell me everything there was to know about being a vampire. But I’m still the best one there is, and people should recognize and appreciate that.

We… um… that’s…

We have to agree wholeheartedly with that!

Because I’m right!

Of course you are! Now for our last question! What is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow?
Why would you want to eat a stupid bird when you could feast on a beautiful young woman? Are you friends with Louis or something? Where is he, anyway? I’ve been looking for him.

Er… okay, thanks for that!

That concludes our interview! Thanks for joining us, Lestat! We appreciate your time, and best of luck finding that friend of yours again!

  1. I became a fan of the Vampire Chronicles because of Tom’s flawless performance as Lestat. He even looks sexy with those blue eyes and blonde curly hair.

    1. Agreed! I saw the movie before I read the books, and they definitely got me interested. With me, it’s usually the other way around, I read the books first, and then I watch the movies. But with Tom’s movies, it always seems to work in reverse!
