AMC series finds its third lead alongside Sam Reid and Jacob Anderson
AMC’s “Interview With the Vampire” series has found its Claudia. Bailey Bass will play the role on the Anne Rice-adapted series.
Bass, who is set to star in James Cameron’s upcoming “Avatar” sequels, will appear opposite previously announced cast members Sam Reid (Lestat) and Jacob Anderson (Louis).
Last year, AMC acquired the rights to Rice’s bestselling “Vampire Chronicles” and “Lives of the Mayfair Witches” book series, allowing the network to develop film and TV projects from any of the 18 titles under both best-selling series.
The author and her son Christopher Rice will serve as executive producers on all series and films under their deal with AMC, which gives the network and its external partners comprehensive rights to develop projects using Rice’s intellectual property.
Rolin Jones will serve as creator, showrunner and executive producer of “Interview.” The series has been greenlit for an eight-episode first season. Mark Johnson is spearheading AMC’s development for its entire Rice catalog.
“Interview With the Vampire” was previously adapted into a 1994 movie starring Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt. Pitt played Louis while Cruise was Lestat. Kirsten Dunst played Claudia.
Bass will play Tsireya in “Avatar 2” and “Avatar 3,” which are due out in the next handful of years.
