Interview with the Vampire series crew praises intimacy coordinators

The team behind AMC’s Interview With the Vampire series weighed the use of on-set intimacy coordinators during a panel discussion for the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour.

“We worked pretty extensively with an intimacy coordinator,” said series star Sam Reid. “I think it’s really important to work with an intimacy coordinator. I haven’t worked with an intimacy coordinator in several years. I think it treats these scenes more like a stunt scene or a fight scene, so they’re choreographed and try to keep some spontaneity in it. It was kind of fun doing it that way. We had to rehearse and know exactly what was going to happen.”

The question arose over the fact that Lestat, played by Reid, and Louis de Pointe, played by Jacob Anderson, became physically involved early on in the series, forcing Reid and Anderson to film sex scenes together.

“It gives everyone the right to ask any questions they want at any time, which can sometimes be difficult in a hierarchical crew,” added director and executive producer Alan Taylor. With a coordinator everything is on the table.”

The use of intimacy coordinators on sets has been in the news in recent days after Game of Thrones graduate Sean Bean criticized the practice. Since then, actors such as Lena Hall and Amanda Seyfried have spoken out, with Seyfried saying she felt unable to express her discomfort on set when she was younger.

Based on the book of the same name by Anne Rice, Interview With the Vampire follows the epic story of Louis de Pointe, Lestat De Lioncourt and Claudia about love, blood and the perils of immortality. Bailey Bass plays Claudia.

Rolin Jones created the series and is serving as showrunner. Interview with the Vampire is executive produced by Mark Johnson, Christopher Rice and the late Anne Rice. Taylor is directing and executive producing the first two episodes. AMC Studios will produce.

Interview with the Vampire is one of two shows AMC is currently working on based on Rice’s works, having acquired the rights to the 2020 novels The Vampire Chronicles and The Lives of the Mayfair Witches in the TV Universe based on the books about his overall deal with AMC Studios.

“Interview With the Vampire” debuts October 2 on AMC
