Mehcad Brooks is a new addition to the True Blood cast, he was introduced to us as Eggs last season. InterviewMagazine.com did a Q&A with Mehcad.
Where are you from?
I’m from beautiful and green Austin, Texas.
How did you get into acting?
I watched Eddie Murphy Raw and Delirious every day after school in elementary and middle school before my parents got home. I realized that entertaining people was a career and I thought I’m already doing that I may as well be paid for it.
If you were immortal, what would you do differently from what you do now?
If I were immortal…nothing. Because I would have plenty of time to correct my many mistakes.
Can the vampire universes of True Blood and Twilight peacefully coexist?
Of course. It’s not like the democrats and the republicans. Twilight is amazing. Jackson Rathbone and Edi Gathegi from the film are friends. But I think our vamps are the ones the adults watch when they tuck the kiddies into their twilight sheets and knickers.
What would a rumble between the two casts look like?
We could always have a “vamp-off” which was very common in 15th century Wallachia and current day New Orleans. But my prediction is after a couple rounds they’d be begging for their undead mothers.
If you could read minds like Anna Paquin’s character Sookie, whose mind would you read?
Dick Chaney. Come on. You know you want to know too.
Which celebrity do you suspect is most likely to be a secret vampire?
In that “cool vamp” way…Nick Cage. In the traditional sense of the matter… there are plenty of parasites. Not too many secretive about that.
What’s your favorite vampire movie, book, or TV show besides True Blood?
Bram Stoker and Nosferatu.
What’s the scariest or strangest thing that’s happened on the set of the show?
Love scenes scare me like Carrie Prejean’s politics.
