The hilarious horror comedy The Revenant, from writer/director Kerry Prior, tells the story of fallen solider Bart Gregory (David Anders), who not long after being laid to rest has seemingly joined the ranks of the living dead. Part zombie and part vampire (known in the film as a revenant), he decides to do law enforcement a favor by cleaning up the streets, while he and best friend/sidekick Joey (Chris Wylde) do whatever they can to find a constant supply of fresh blood, in order to keep from diminishing to dust.
During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, to promote the September 18th DVD release of the film, actor David Anders (Once Upon A Time, The Vampire Diaries) talked about what attracted him to The Revenant, his frustration over the long time it’s taken for the film to reach audiences, how difficult the make-up and contacts were to wear, the most disgusting things he had to do, and how much he and his co-star Chris Wylde kept laughing during shooting. He also talked about what a huge reveal it will be when viewers find out the alter-ego of his Once Upon A Time character, how much he enjoys interacting with fans, how the people involved are what attracts him to a project, and that his dream role would be on Game of Thrones. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
