10Lestat in Interview With a Vampire
This film adaptation of Anne Rice's first novel of, The Vampire Chronicles was extremely well received. The character of Lestat was portrayed by Tom Cruise and although Rice was hesitant about the casting choice, it turned out to be a great success. Like in the book,
Lestat is manipulative, obnoxious and evil. Although his wry sense of humor lightens the mood here and there, his darkness is always present, reminding the viewer that he cannot be trusted. Plus, he's rich beyond belief. A dangerous combination, indeed.
