Sundance 2011: Kristin Kreuk and Trevor Morgan Exclusive Video Interview VAMPIRE

     January 27, 2011


One of the many films to premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival was Japanese writer/director Shunji Iwai’s Vampire which stars Kevin Zegers , Amanda Plummer, Adelaide Clemens, Rachael Leigh Cook, Kristen Kreuk, Trevor Morgan and Keisha Castle-Hughes. Here’s what the Sundance website has on the film:

Simon seems like a fairly normal, average young man who’s devoted to his teaching job and ailing mother. Underneath the surface, however, things are not what they seem. Simon hunts through online chat rooms and message boards, searching for the perfect girl: beautiful, shy, and suicidal. Simon has a particular condition: he is compelled to drink blood.

Anyway, the other day I got to interview Kristen Kreuk and Trevor Morgan about working on Vampire here at Sundance.  We talked about what the film is about, why they got involved in the project, being at Sundance, why are vampire’s so popular right now, what other projects they’re working on, and a lot more.  Hit the jump to watch
