The vampire was a complete change from the usual romantic characters I was playing, but it was a success.
I have never met a vampire personally, but I don't know what might happen tomorrow.
The role seemed to demand that I keep myself worked up to fever pitch, so I took on the actual attributes of the horrible vampire, Dracula.
There was no male vampire type in existence. Someone suggested an actor of the Continental School who could play any type, and mentioned me.
