Life can be as bitter as dragon tears. But whether dragon tears are bitter or sweet depends entirely on how each man perceives the taste.

Maharet and Mekaire were the red head sister. I think they only portrayed one in the QotD movie. Akasha was Egyptian so theoretically she could have been black. But I think the way she was always described was that she was already so pale that she looked more white just with black hair. I imagined her more the way that Cleopatra has been portrayed, definitely nothing like Aaliyah's looks.

Tom does it waaaay better, only if he had the face of Stuart, then he would have looked like a perfect Lestat as well.
I find the QOTD movie a bad movie, because it didnt follow the books, and Lestat was so different in his manners, and why didnt they dye Stuart's hair? I mean they did dye Tom's so they could've done it with Stuart rite?

To anyone who thought Stuart Townsend (thankfully very few from what I have read) go back and read the books. With the exception of the accent (and the height, but that can always be hidden in film) Tom Cruise was perfect as Lestat. It is a slightly unfair comparison, as they played Lestat in very different eras. But the fact that the plot of Queen was so murdered always prejudiced me against it.

Antonio was interesting. Although he is nothing like Armand is meant to be, I always applaud his representation. The casting for interview was great. And to whoever cast Queen; stay in hiding... we will find you some day!
For all the dark dreamt fears that haunt our nights, the minds of man are still the greatest horror, and hope.
