The “Interview With the Vampire” series at AMC has cast Bailey Bass in the key role of Claudia, Variety has learned.
Bass joins previously announced series leads Jacob Anderson, who will play Louis, and Sam Reid, who will play Lestat. Bass is now the second actress to portray Claudia onscreen, with Kirsten Dunst having played the character in the “Interview With the Vampire” film in 1994.
Bass first came to prominence when it was announced that she would star in the upcoming sequels to James Camerson’s “Avatar” in the role of Tsireya. She recently wrapped the holiday feature “A Jenkins Family Christmas,” based on the Broadway show “Chicken & Biscuits.” Her other onscreen roles include a guest spot on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and the NBC pilot “At That Age.”
