Moonlight - starring the coolest vampire Mick St. John
Deutsch/German: Die Serie lief 2012
schonmal auf sixx und wurde dort 2014 wiederholt.
Hier gibt's Infos (auch zu anderen Vampirserien): http://www.sixx.de/tv/moonlight
Although vampires usually scare me and give me nightmares, the
fact that Alex plays Mick St. John makes the series not only "bearable" for me
but actually extremely enjoyable! I would
have never thought that I could like a vampire THAT much!
Alex is absolutely fantastic as Mick St. John - a vampire and private investigator who has chosen this profession to help others in order to "make up for being a vampire" - something he is not happy with, at all.
In the picture above, you see Mick with his ex-wife Coraline (Shannyn Sossamon) who is the one who turned him into a vampire against his will. When Coraline later kidnaps a little girl, Beth, to have a family with Mick, he saves Beth and kills Coraline - He watches Beth (Sophia Myles) grow up and ultimately falls in love with her when she's an adult. Needless to say that a relationship between a vampire and a human bears some conflict. The series deals with that conflict but also with the cases that Mick is investigating as a P.I., while Beth is working as a reporter with a special interest in crime and vampire stories - So Mick and her frequently find themselves bumping into each other at the same crime scenes or the morgue... Although all of this might seem rather serious and depressing, the series is actually quite funny, too.
Enjoy some of my favorite clips from "Moonlight" (Fan-videos etc.)
Let's start with a rough cut of the "Interview with a
vampire" which is part of the series' introductory sequence

And I found some rather humourful interviews about "Moonlight", too
Alex interview at the Moonlight premiere
I find it quite amusing when Alex tells the interviewer to check out "Nosferatu" (definitely one of the ugliest creatures ever having appeared in a movie but obviously one the interviewer has never heard of) after she asks him why all vampires are good-looking - something I don't agree with, by the way.

By the way, that special scene in "The Shield" that is mentionned in the interview is indeed very hot but also very short. Don't make the mistake of buying the DVDs (Season 6, ep. 9) just to enjoy that one scene... I have the season on DVD but don't really like the rest of the cast and the show too much.
Alex and Jason Dohring interview - Part 1 / Part 2
Alex and Jason (He plays Mick's best friend and 'co-vampire' on "Moonlight")
are interviewed on the set by CBS Mobile.
I think they are really funny, and Alex is amazingly witty considering that he's slept for just two hours the night before...

About "Angel of Vengeance" - the book that inspired "Moonlight"
A fellow fan of Alex told me about the book "Angel of Vengeance" written by Trevor O. Munson who is not only the producer of "Moonlight" but also the patron of the great "AOL Fans for Donate Life".
The book is now also available in GERMAN and ITALIAN language!
