Exclusive Q&A with The Vampire Assistant’s Josh HutchersonOctober 21st, 2009
Little Manhattan, RV, and Bridge to Terabithia star Josh Hutcherson’s all grown up — and starring in the first film from the Cirque du Freak Saga called The Vampire’s Assistant. He chats exclusively with J-14 about evil vampires, werewolves, and his celeb pals.
J-14: What kind of vampire do you play in The Vampire’s Assistant?
Josh Hutcherson: My character Steve is a vampaneze, which is basically an evil vampire. And the difference between the vampires and vampaneze is that the vampires live by a certain code – they can’t kill, they can’t do certain things, and they only drink blood to survive. But the vampaneze just do whatever they want. So my character is the reckless type and that was really fun to play. It’s definitely different than anything I’ve played before because I haven’t ever really got the chance to play the bad guy kind of role.
