Twist Magazine har en ny intervju med Lucas och ett utdrag från intervjun kan du läsa nedan. Jag hinner tyvärr inte översätta intervjun just nu 🙁
TWIST: Can you tell us about I Kissed a Vampire?
Lucas: I play Dylan, an unlikely hero who is turning into a vampire. He doesn’t want to because he’s in love with the girl next door. Literally, she’s his neighbor. She doesn’t know that he’s turning into a vampire. Chaos ensues when this other vampire, Trey Sylvania comes into the picture. He really wants me to embrace my vampireness, and I don’t want to. He tries to take over my girlfriend as a ploy to get me to be more like a vampire and take what I want.
TWIST: Can you tell us a little more about Dylan?
Lucas: He’s kind of awkward, not really confident, and a little shy, but head over heels with this girl. They’ve been friends forever, and he’s really not taking a liking to this ‘turning into a vampire’ thing. He thinks it’s totally overrated and doesn’t see the plus sides of it. He just wants to be normal.
TWIST: What’s the difference between shooting something like I Kissed a Vampire verses shooting a show like Switched at Birth?
Lucas: Completely different. First of all, Vampire was a musical, so I’m not singing and dancing all over the place on Switched at Birth, but also just the scheduling. I shoot five days a week every week, and we’re in the middle of shooting 22 episodes right now of Switched at Birth, so there’s a routine in the schedule. We had kind of a skeleton crew, I guess you’d say, on Vampire, so it was a little bit more longer days and intensity, a lot of people running around, trying to get everything done by the end of the day. Switched at Birth is a little bit more relaxed.
T: Who are your biggest acting and musical inspirations?
Lucas: Musically, Jeff Buckley has always been a big influence for me. Bob Dylan too, and I also love jazz like Miles Davis and all of that. For acting, it can be a moment in a film that gives me inspiration, or one really cool shot in a movie or one really great performance in one scene. I usually look for that more so than following one person’s career. I’m really excited for Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s career though. I feel like he’s an amazing up and comer and has the potential to be another Leonardo DiCaprio, which is exciting. I respect that.
TWIST: If you could collaborate with any musician, who would it be?
Lucas: Justin Timberlake! He hasn’t made any music in a long time. He needs to make new music. Actually, I went to a concert last night and saw this girl K.Flay. She’s a local artist here in LA, but she’s just now rising to the surface, and she’s really awesome. She’s like this suburban-looking girl that spits these mad rap rhymes. She does all of her own beats and everything. It’d be really cool to collaborate with someone with a contrasting genre than I normally write, and to do a little mash-up. I talked to her after the show and we talked about working together on something, so that’d be fun.
TWIST: Do you have any upcoming projects that TWIST readers should know about?
Lucas: I have a movie coming out soon, but it hasn’t been announced yet, so I can’t really talk about that yet. But that’s this year! And of course I feel like I need to mention that March 16 is the theatrical release of I Kissed a Vampire, then June 19 is the VOD/DVD release. Keep watching Switched at Birth. We’re going to be going for a few more episodes, then we’re going to take a little break, then come back for 12 more. I also will be releasing some more music this year as well in a much more subdued manner. I’m just going to start putting stuff online for free.

Jag är lite nyfiken på vilken film det är han pratar om, men det får säkert redan på inom kort.
