You play a young vampire in True Blood, tell me about your character?
I play Alexander Drew. He is described as impetuous vamp who likes to taunt others. He is basically a trouble maker. He was turned at the age of nine. So I’m like an old man stuck in a little kid’s body. But if you want to talk authority, I’ve got authority – I get to taunt the big guys – I’m that important!
The show is aimed at much older audience, are you allowed to watch it at all? If not, how did you prepare for the role?
Well, in human years, of course not! I am not allowed to watch the show. My dad is an actor and my acting coach and he really prepared me for the role. Not to mention, I love vampires. I have books about them and I am very fascinated with them. When I found out I booked the role, I couldn’t stop reading about vampires!
What’s been your highlight of working on the show?
My favorite part was wearing my fangs. When I put them in my mouth I said, ‘Now I really feel like a real vampire.’
True Blood mainly revolves around vampires. If you could be any mythical creature, what would you be and why?
I would be The Eye of Sauron from Lord of Rings because nothing is brave enough to face him.
If you could have a superpower, what would it be and why?
I would have the power of super-speed so I could run on water.
Who is your dream co-star?
My dream co-star would be Johnny Depp because he is a hilarious guy, he can do so many awesome characters and he is such a good actor. My favourite character he does is Captain Jack Sparrow because he was so sarcastic, but heroic and I cheered for him.
What sorts of TV shows do you like to watch in your free time, and which ones would you like to guest star on?
My favorite shows are SpongeBob, iCarly, Good Luck Charlie, Shake it Up and The Avengers Cartoon. If I could be a cartoon, I would love to be on SpongeBob and pull pranks on Squidward. I would also like to be on Good Luck Charlie because it is really funny.
Who’s tuning into the new season next month to see what Jacob’s character is made of?
