‘The AMC+ Interview with the Vampire Podcast’ is the official companion listen to AMC’s new adaptation of Anne Rice’s iconic novel
Based on Anne Rice’s 1976 gothic novel, AMC’s Interview with the Vampire premieres on October 2. The new TV adaptation is set in 2022 and follows vampire Louis de Pointe du Lac’s life in Dubai. The immortal vampire, played by Jacob Anderson, lives in the Emirates and is set with a team of personal assistants offering their blood at his beck and call.
He is eager to share the story of his life and afterlife with journalist Daniel Molloy (Eric Bogosian). Louis brings listeners to the early 20th-century in New Orleans when he was a businessman operating clubs to support his family. Louis recounts his relationship with a vampire named Lestat du Lioncourt (Sam Reid), and we see their family dynamics, meet a kid vampire named Claudia (Bailey Bass), and more about the immortal family’s life in New Orleans. As Louis’ interview unfolds, Daniel learns the vampire’s story and uncovers truths.
