Peter Facinelli Page

“We've been shooting the last two weeks with a lot of vampires. I don't want to give away too much, but if you've read the books, it's the standoff with lots of vampires in play. There's like 70 people going through the works at once. It's a little maddening, but fun. We shot pretty much the ending of the two movies the other day.”

- Peter Facinelli

Jim Morrison Page

“Film spectators are quiet vampires.”

Octavia Butler Page

“What I'm working on now - I'm back to fantasy, although considering that it's me, I'm turning it into a kind of science fantasy. It's a vampire story - but my vampires are biological vampires. They didn't become vampires because someone bit them; they were born that way.”

- Octavia Butler

Neko Case Page

“I want to get away from the social vampires in Tucson. The people who have no lives of their own and meet me and know who I am and feel entitled to say negative things. I have good friends here, especially in the bands. But a lot of it is just like high school.”

- Neko Case

Stephen Dorff Page

“Vampires to me have always been very sexy.”

- Stephen Dorff


John Entwistle Page

“I supply the music for Vampires, which is a new series that's coming out.”

- John Entwistle

Colin Farrell Page

“Vampires have always held a very seductive kind of lore and have always been some variety of attractive, whether it's attractiveness that's born of just the physical attributes that they have - this kind of ethereal beauty or translucent pallor - or whether it is more to do with the way they carry themselves.”

- Colin Farrell

James Gandolfini Page

“You know, all writers are vampires and they'll look around and they watch you when you're not even thinking they're watching you and they'll slip stuff in.”

- James Gandolfini

Laurell K. Hamilton Page

“I think that my vampires in general were influenced by my being allowed to watch the Hammer vampire films. Vampire Circus, also shown as Circus of Fear, was one of those movies.”

- Laurell K. Hamilton


Taylor Lautner Page

“The coolest thing about the series is that we stay very true to the books; it would be silly for us not to, because the books are exactly what the fans want to see. There's an action side to it, which I love, and there are werewolves now. There aren't just vampires. There's a wolf pack.”

- Taylor Lautner

Cody Linley Page

“When I was filming 'The Haunting Hour', my co-stars Emily Osment, Brittany Curran and I paid a visit to a haunted house - all dressed up as vampires! We really confused the workers.”

- Cody Linley

Brian Lumley Page

“But other vampire stories? Well, no, I really haven't read too many, and I can't say I'm crazy about romantic vampires anyway - to me the vampire is simply an evil monster.”

- Brian Lumley

Jonny Lee Miller Page

“Vampires are immortal, you can do whatever you want, and get away with it. And there's the seduction part of course, sex is a big part of the vampire thing.”

- Jonny Lee Miller

Alex O'Loughlin Page

“I am a big fan of vampires. I've always been obsessed with the genre, and the beautiful romanticism and erotic kind of nature of the immortal being, the undead who lives on human blood.”

- Alex O'Loughlin


Anne Rice Page

“The vampires have always been metaphors for me. They've always been vehicles through which I can express things I have felt very, very deeply.”

- Anne Rice

Ian Somerhalder Page

“Before vampires were aesthetically appealing, they were physical anomalies and ostracized outsiders whom we banished to the dark, and they didn't have the appeal that they do now.”

- Ian Somerhalder
