E! News: In the finale, Lestat is not burned and is instead left at the dump, implying he’s still alive. Can you definitively say if we will see Lestat in season two?
Jacob Anderson: Yes, I can definitively say that you will see Lestat in season two.
E!: Season two ends with Louis and Claudia fleeing New Orleans. Are they heading to Paris or somewhere else first?
JA: I think it’s safe to say that Claudia and Louis are heading for the European region of the world. They’re heading towards Europe.
E!: Viewers were blown away when it was revealed that Rashid, Louis’ assistant, was actually Armand, a fan favorite vampire from Anne’s book series. How early on did you know about this reveal?
JA: I knew that the first time I spoke to [creator] Rolin Jones on FaceTime after I was cast. The first conversation we had, he was like, ‘Rashid is Armand.’ I think Assad Zaman [who plays Rashid/Armand] was told halfway through his audition process.
