RYMER, MICHAEL: QUEEN OF THE DAMNED

Andrew L. Urban accepted the irresistible invitation from director Michael Rymer to play a bit(e) part – as a journalist – in Rymer’s next picture: a vampire movie. In Queen of the Damned, your editor plays a journalist at an international press conference in London (but shot in Melbourne). While on the set, Rymer agreed to ‘do lunch’ with Urban in his trailer; Urban recorded the conversation.

Andrew L. Urban's interview with Michael Rymer.

Queen of the Damned is a supernatural adventure which follows the legendary vampire, Lestat (Stuart Townsend), who has re-invented himself as a rock star in the contemporary American music scene. His music wakes Akasha (Aaliyah), the queen of all vampires (the Queen of the Damned), and inspires her to want to make Lestat her king. Akasha’s malevolent power is so great that all the immortal vampires must stand against her if they want to survive. Meanwhile a young London woman, Jesse (Marguerite Moreau), with a fascination for the dark side falls in love with Lestat. The film also stars Lena Olin as Maharet and Vincent Perez as Marius.
